Jack’s Back

Twitter’s CEO is set to resign on July 1, and NYU alumnus (and Twitter co-founder) Jack Dorsey will return as interim CEO. Welcome back, Jack.

Jack never finished his NYU degree and neither has John Meyer. Not John Mayer - John Meyer.  According to Business Insider, our John Meyer is doing really well.  Please come back (to NYU) John.

The only person doing better than Jack and John right now is Justin, who recently won the Kentucky Derby, which is even big news in the U.K.  Unlike Jack and John, Justin finished his NYU degree. After completing NYU’s Liberal Studies Core Program, he graduated from our College of Arts and Science last month. It is very hard to top Justin.

Congrats to the Class of 2015

Hats/graduation caps off to the high school seniors out there, as well as our own Class of 2015 – especially these two, for they always kept it real at NYU.  From Dylan taking a part-time job like nearly every other NYU student, to Cole studying archeology, the Sprouse bros kept us on our toes during their stint in Greenwich Village.

Violet, you’re turning violet, Violet!

Greenwich Village has been a sea of purple this week! From the purple Empire State Building to all of the graduates in their purple caps and gowns, NYU is truly violet this week. Parents, friends, and families have come far and wide to celebrate with our  graduates and they get to see their students graduate at some of the most iconic New York City locations.  Our university commencement took place at Yankee Stadium yesterday and our school specific ceremonies are in theaters like the Beacon, Avery Fisher Hall, and Madison Square Garden.

This year was a particularly special graduation year because I received my Master’s Degree from the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. When I wasn’t traveling the world meeting with prospective students and reviewing applications, I could usually be found in Bobst Library doing my schoolwork! A few other admissions staff are graduating this year as well! Congrats to Kaitlin Prieto, also graduating with her MA from Steinhardt, and Billy Sichel and Jenny McMahon, who are graduating with their MBAs from the Stern School of Business.

A big congratulations to all of our graduating student ambassadors, Andy, Anthony, Bailey, Caitlin, Camaley, Caroline, Christopher, Courtney, Didier, Dilyn, Dominic, Erin, Ilana, Ilse, Jamiee, Jeremy, Jessica, Jillian, Joe, Jules, Kate, Lauren, Liana, Lindsay, LV, Lydia, Madeline, Masha, Natalie, Nicole, Nikita, Paul, Pilar, Rosa, Ryan, Samir, Sarah, Sarah, Sarah, Shannon, Sol, Spiro, Stephen, Strickland, Taylor, Ty, Tyler, Zach,  and Zarin. We’re going to miss you all!

Because no occasion is complete with at least one jumping photo!

#NYUWOTS and Twitter Fame!

If you haven’t been able to tell from my previous blog posts, I really love my job. From traveling to exciting parts of the country and the world to learning all about students through their applications, I get to do a lot of cool stuff as an admissions counselor. But I don’t think anything is as cool, or as fun as our annual Weekend on the Square (WOTS) admitted student event. Read More

My Week in Shanghai

Last week I found myself on a plane to Shanghai a couple days after finishing up the review process for freshman applicants here in New York. To say I was excited to travel to China to see NYU Shanghai for the first time would be an understatement (my colleague and I had a countdown on his phone for months!) and the experience did not disappoint.
