Orientation Activities

We use the phrase "Orientation Over Time" to describe our approach to welcoming new students to our community. We see orientation as a series of activities and resources designed to prepare you for the beginning of your first term at Wagner and to help you get the best possible start to your graduate school journey.

All mandatory orientation activities will take place online in January 2021. Check out Wagner's virtual learning training videos, resources, and contacts before orientation.

IMPORTANT: For security purposes, only NYU email addresses will be allowed in all orientation sessions, so make sure you use your NYU Zoom account to register and participate in all activities. If you haven't done so already, activate your NYU Zoom account ASAP.
