"Reading and homework certainly all need to be done in advance of the Sunday start day."
- August Class of 2011 student


You are responsible for keeping track of all your upcoming assignments.  The below syllabi detail the assignments that need to be done not only for the First Week Residency but for the entire course.

Please note that some instructors may revise their syllabi before the residency begins on January 8, 2012.  We will email you if that happens.

"I was one of the people who did not fully appreciate the amount of work that needed to be done beforehand. If I had completed all of the readings and homework before getting to Arrowwood: a) I wouldn't have been so stressed when I arrived b) I would have been able to get my daily homework completed (for most classes we were given homework to prepare each night for the following class) and still have had time to socialise with my classmates afterwards."

PC/laptop access

  • Please note that every username begins j14 (j-fourteen) and is followed by a word from the course title. Similarly, every password begins j14 (j-fourteen) and is followed by the professor's surname.
  • You may access your materials online through Xanedu.com and eventually through your Blackboard site. You are able to print up to two copies. The cases and articles will be available to you online for the duration of each course and then they will expire and will not be available.

iPad access

In summer and fall of 2011, XanEdu offered digital course packets with enhanced features for iPad.  In October, this offering was abruptly terminated.  At this moment in time, we recommend using only your PC or laptop to access materials.  NYU and other universities are following the situation with XanEdu to restore iPad access and we will keep you informed when this becomes a viable option.



"One must do prior reading as well as a few assignments before coming to Arrowwood for the Residency week. That would give the individual more chance to participate in social gatherings in the evenings and during dinners instead of worrying about next day's assignment!"
