This summer and fall, the NYU Alumni Association will be hosting 40 events around the US and across the globe to celebrate the Class of 2015 and to welcome them to the local NYU alumni community. These gatherings will be a great opportunity to meet and celebrate our newest alumni and share the Violet pride of the NYU network, wherever you are in the world.

June is Caribbean-American Heritage Month, a time to honor NYU’s many alumni and students with Caribbean-American backgrounds.
