Last week, Student Government announced the annual Spring Formal to happen on April 27th, eleven days before the event.

“This global travel through NYU Shanghai was really a cumulative journey for knowledge, experience, culture, and language,” said senior Ben Zhang of his four years at NYU Shanghai. “I realized my dream and now I am just following this passion.”
Two Masters of Science programs are going to be jointly offered between NYU Shanghai and NYU Stern, enrolling the inaugural class in June 2019. “This new collaboration with NYU Stern fits right within NYU Shanghai’s philosophy of offering innovative graduate programs that are tailored to meet societal needs,” said NYU Shanghai Vice Chancellor Jeffrey Lehman.
“We academically shaped the school to a great degree being the second class. As the school and its program develops and evolves, every class after us will be building onto and refining what we had established” Hauser explained. “I appreciate NYU Shanghai for the experience, but I do wish I came at a later date for all of the different courses that are offered now.”
“Kids who come here are more prepared, because we had to figure it out ourselves. It was a new university, not well-established,” Anna Shevchenko said in an interview with On Century Avenue. “We’re more scrappy, we’re using our resources to make the best of what we have. That’s a very valuable experience.”
