NYU GSTEM Welcomes Its Second Class

On July 7, more than 40 rising high school seniors arrived at NYU to begin a six-week summer program dedicated to girls interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). In just its second year, the program has doubled in size, and offers high school girls who have a high aptitude in STEM subjects the opportunity to cultivate that interest as they prepare to apply to college.


A Preliminary Look:

This year, for the seventh consecutive year, a record number of students applied to New York University; more than 52,000 students applied for freshman admission to NYU's three campuses in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai. As students finalize their enrollment and make plans for the fall, here is a preliminary look at the NYU Class of 2018.


The Archivist’s Angle

NYU’s Founding Father, Albert Gallatin

By Elizabeth Alleva (GSAS ’15)

In the United States, Americans celebrate the Fourth of July by taking time to reflect on the creation of the nation and the founding fathers who made it possible. NYU’s own founding father, Albert Gallatin, spent much of his life working alongside those who shaped the US, including the author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson.
