Students will have the opportunity to vote on one another’s work through the blog and the posts will be reviewed by a panel of faculty, staff, and students in the week of April 16, 2017. The best post/s in each category (video, still photo, written text, etc.)  will be selected to be hosted on this Global Orientation: NYU Florence GSite for future students to view.
