2015 Orientation


During your first week at NYU, you will get to know your school and meet your cohort members, learn more about NYU resources and activities, and participate in NYU Stern traditions. Whether you're native to NYC or coming here for the first time, experience what the city has to offer through events at Central Park, Madison Square Garden, and the US Open.

NYU Stern Class of 2022 Orientation is Monday, August 27 - Friday, August 31, 2018. The schedule will be released in August. Stay tuned for additional information about Orientation from the Undergraduate College Office of Student Engagement (OSE).

Incoming freshmen are divided into ten cohorts. You will learn which cohort you are in the week before NYU Stern Orientation. You will get to know your cohort peers during Orientation, and they will be your classmates in the Cohort Leadership Program. Your cohort community will continue to grow during your time at NYU Stern through curricular, co-curricular, and social events.

"Within moments of stepping onto Gould Plaza, I was immersed into the vibrant energy of equally nervous and excited freshmen who were welcomed with warm smiles from our Orientation Leaders. Through our activities together, I was able to get to know so many other students, some who I consider my closest friends today." – Seungmin Yi, Class of 2019

"My orientation leaders and group shaped the beginnings of my experience here at Stern. One of my OLs introduced me to student council and while I wasn't active at first, I'm now the class President." – Pranav Reddy, Class of 2018
