Welcome to New York University (NYU),

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Residential International Student Engagement (R.I.S.E.), a program created to enhance the residential experience of International Students at NYU. R.I.S.E. is made up of Residential Students, Commuters Students, Resident Assistants, Faculty, and Professional Staff, who aim to create a positive and enjoyable experience for international students at N

We will be hosting programs and large social events to connect students, smaller informal programs to promote conversations, and events to highlight.

Following the R.I.S.E. Social on September 4th, we will be commencing our Tea On Tuesday's program at the Saints Alp Tea House (9th Street & 3rd Ave) for the year which is a recurring event on the following dates and times for this semester: September 16th 4-5pm, 7-8pm, October 21st 4-5pm, 7-8pm, and November 18th 4-5pm, 7-8pm.  This program will be a composed of a small gathering of students at a local tea spot, where you will have the chance to connect closely with others and discuss topics of interest.  Please mark your calendars.  

We also have a Facebook Group: RISE FaceBook Group.  We will use the group to advertise upcoming programs and events and upload pictures from them as well.  It is also a great source to connect with other International Students.  Feel free to join whenever you have the opportunity.

Throughout the academic year R.I.S.E. will provide opportunities for peer interaction, assist with  integration into the United States, and help students stay linked to their own culture while connecting with the greater NYU and NYC community.  We hope that these services will assist you in making a smooth transition to a life in the United States and at NYU.
