Your Virtual Guide to the NYU Pathways Open House

Our first Fall Open House gives you the opportunity to choose your adventure – explore NYU resources to help kick off your college journey!

It’s safe to say a majority of us have become experts at navigating virtual experiences – from Zoom classes to social hangouts. But what if I told you our virtual events can offer you something refreshing to explore? Because we don’t believe in barriers at NYU – only pathways.

Our NYU Pathways Open House, taking place on September 25th and 26th, is your chance to discover how NYU resources and programs can help you reach your  goals. This weekend of interactive virtual sessions will be hosted by admissions staff, current students, and even NYU faculty. 

Explore your interests further, and leave with all the tools you need to build a killer college application. The best part is you get to choose your own adventure! Here’s your guide to navigating a weekend of possibilities. 

Your NYU Pathways Portal

First, how exactly do you access all these sessions? After registering, you’ll receive a portal link. Login and navigate to “Load My Agenda and Register for Sessions”. Click on individual sessions, read a description and register to save a spot! Day of, just click on “join” at the listed time.

Second thing to know, all live sessions will be hosted on Zoom, so double check your audio settings for the best quality experience. One more thing! All sessions are listed in New York Time so if you’re tuning in from across the seas, make sure to convert session times to your local time zone.

Tips on How to Plan Your Weekend

Now, we know that choosing your own adventure is exciting but can also be a little daunting. Don’t sweat it! Pathways Open House breaks down the fundamentals of college resources and allows you to explore our academic subject areas in deeper dive session breakouts. 

Our recommendation? Attend as many main sessions as you can! You’ll be welcomed in the morning by our Assistant Vice President of Admissions, Jonathan B. Williams, who will share important academic and application updates, but there’s so much more in store.

It's all about your interests and inquiries! 

But one last suggestion – don’t miss the virtual tour offered at the end of each day! It’s truly your opportunity to explore our campus without walls, right from your home. This immersive experience is led by the best tour guides – NYU Campus Ambassadors – current students who know they’re way around. Make sure to come with questions. As you might imagine, curiosity is always welcome here! 

Can’t make it to all the sessions? Selected sessions will be recorded and accessible across multiple social media channels. We’ll let you know when they’re available to view via email.  

So What Else Is Up?

Pathways Open House is a great place to start your NYU Journey, but it certainly doesn’t have to end there! This upcoming Fall season, explore and register for a variety of programs that allow you to design your academic journey, at NYU and beyond.
