Happy #collegesigningday ! Are you showing off your NYU gear today? I’m enjoying my last day in Seattle before I head back to a spring-y NYC!
April is an exciting time in admissions—we are welcoming thousands of admitted students to campus all month. When we’re not on campus, admissions officers are also hitting the road to meet with our admitted students and we also begin introducing NYU to juniors who are beginning the college process! Our travels continue through May, so be sure to check our website to see if NYU is visiting your city this spring!
The past few weekends were very busy and very fun! After a quick trip to New Hampshire for a college fair, I came back to a warm and sunny NYC just in time for NYU’s Weekend on the Square (#NYUWOTS). Weekend on the Square is a full weekend of events for our admitted students. We had programs for each school or college at NYU, a whole bunch of incredible student performers, and we turned Schwartz Plaza into “Student Life Lane”, where students could learn a bit more about all of the incredible resources we have on campus. We had residence halls open for room shows, and my favorite mascot, the NYU Bobcat was wandering campus and taking photos with our admitted students (and some of our staff as well—it’s not WoTS without a Bobcat Selfie!). The whole weekend was spectacular! It was so wonderful to meet many of our admitted students and celebrate their admission to NYU. Here are some pictures from the day. Want to see more? Check out the hashtag #NYU2020 to get a peak of how awesome Weekend on the Square was this year! We even had our own #NYU2020 snapchat geofilter!

The best part about WoTS? Purple Balloons everywhere!
About 12 hours after #NYUWOTS, I hopped on a plane to Seattle to meet with prospective and admitted students in the Pacific Northwest! In my downtime, I took a quick trip up north to the tulip festival, where I found a whole section of purple and white tulips–just for NYU. Between junior programs, college fairs, and off-campus receptions, it’s been a busy few weeks!
