Campus Resource: Center for Spiritual Life

One of the best things about NYU is that it is such a diverse and welcoming community.For example, if you are a person of faith, or even just curious about faith, you can find support and services at NYU no matter what your spiritual or religious background.

The NYU Global Center for Spiritual and Academic Life, located at 238 Thompson Street, is a great place for students to get resources on religious and spiritual life on campus and around New York City. We encourage any student who is seeking spiritual support to visit the Center, which hosts 70 chaplain affiliates of various faiths and groups. You can learn more about the Center and its offerings by visiting in person, or emailing spiritual.life@nyu.edu with any questions.

Want to work on mindfulness and self-care? MindfulNYU will be offering yoga classes three times a week until August 10th. These classes are taught by certified, dynamic, and experienced teachers from all over the city. Classes focus not just on physical fitness and health but also on connecting to our center and finding peace through meditation-in-movement. Classes require a current NYU ID (which you will have!). Mats are first-come, first-served. You can also find out more about MindfulNYU on their Facebook page.

 

Reminder: Register with Moses Center

Remember when we told you about the Moses Center a few weeks ago?
I.forgot.05.jpgThat’s okay, we’ll remind you!

At NYU Precollege, we want to make sure you are set up for success, and have all you need to do your best. We realize that some students may need additional resources in order to maximize their learning experience. Whether it’s receiving a time extension for your exam, permission to audio-record your lecture, or something else entirely, NYU has resources to help you.

Students in need of support, large or small, due to any kind of disability are encouraged to contact the NYU Moses Center for Students with Disabilities to register with that office prior to the start of NYU Precollege.

The Moses Center determines a student’s qualified disability status and assists the student in obtaining appropriate accommodations and services.  Services provided vary depending on a student’s need but can include assistance with class note-taking and lectures, alternative exams, and special housing.

If you need assistance or have questions about disability services, please contact the Moses Center.  We recommend that you register with the Moses Center no later than mid-June to afford that office enough time to evaluate need and arrange for services prior to your arrival on campus and the start of class.
