Welcome Page

Dear International Students,

Welcome to New York University (NYU). We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to R.I.S.E. (Residential International Student Engagement.)

R.I.S.E. is a program created to enhance the residential experience of international students at NYU.  We are made up of residential & commuter students, resident assistants, faculty, and professional staff, who aim to create a positive and enjoyable experience for all international students at NYU.

Throughout the academic year, R.I.S.E. will provide opportunities for peer interaction, assist with integration into the U.S., 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 life in the United States and at NYU.

Follow R.I.S.E. at NYU on Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter

We will use this platform to upload pictures from our events and advertise upcoming programs. It is also a great source to connect with other international students. Please join as soon as you get a chance.

Lastly, if you would like to get involved with R.I.S.E. or have any questions, please contact us via email.
