At the first of five Candidate Weekends for NYU Abu Dhabi’s inaugural class, a select group of 38 prospective undergraduate students from across the globe were given a chance to attend classes taught by NYU faculty, converse with NYU’s leadership team including President John Sexton and Vice Chancellor Alfred Bloom, and learn about Abu Dhabi’s impressive vision to become the world’s culture hub.
RCLA Executive Director Bethany Godsoe and Research Associate Waad El Hadidy served as evaluators at the event, held in late October at NYU’s downtown campus and locations throughout Abu Dhabi.
