Welcome to NYU!

Class of 2026, you’ve finally made it to Early Decision 1 Acceptance Day! Despite the many challenges of the last two years,  you’ve kept your eyes on the prize and managed to achieve your dream of becoming a Violet. We couldn’t be happier for you!

To celebrate, we’ve rounded-up some of our favorite posts from across social media yesterday from newly admitted Violets.

Hi! I’m Kerri Kearse (she/her) and I am the Assistant Director of Content Marketing on NYU’s Undergraduate Admissions team, meaning that I am editor-in-chief of the MeetNYU content site and manager of the MeetNYU social media channels! I am a UNC Chapel Hill grad (Go Heels!) and now a part-time Master’s student at NYU Gallatin studying “Narrative, Psychology, and Culture.” When I’m not working for NYU, you can usually find me playing a lot of Dungeons & Dragons, working on a writing project, watching too much reality tv, strolling through the city listening to a podcast, or playing Hades on Nintendo Switch.
