Do you miss the classroom? Are you curious about urbanism? Interested in going behind the scenes? NYU Alumni & Parents Day has something for everyone, including the Oktoberfest closing party! Our tribute to this time-honored German festival will feature a menu of some Oktoberfest favorites including brats, kraut, Schnitzel, and strudel paired with a fantastic selection of beers provided by Smuttynose Brewery, owned by Peter Egelston (WSC ’81). Prost!
While enrolled at NYU, Jean Paul Laurent (DEN ’13) founded Unspoken Smiles, a nonprofit dedicated to teaching proper oral hygiene skills to at-risk children living in underserved communities around the world.

NYU's Sunrise Semester, an educational telecast shown at 6:30 AM, allowed qualified viewers to receive academic credit for watching. There were curricula, reading lists, and mail-in assignments and exams. In lieu of office hours, registered students could write in questions to their instructors, who were NYU professors recruited by the Office of RadioTelevision.
