Getting Involved

 

 

Student Activities and Leadership Development
There's much more to college life than studying and going to class. You can learn from every experience, and we encourage you to take advantage of all that NYIT has to offer: clubs, organizations, sports, and on- and off-campus event. Students and staff embrace diversity, and encourage leadership development and the free expression of ideas. We're dedicated to empowering our students and engaging them in a global community.

 

NYIT Resources

 

 

Student Resources

We have a number of valuable resources available to NYIT students right on campus.

 

Residential Life

 

Residential Life

Students who plan to take courses at either campus are encouraged and invited to live in the residence halls located just around the corner from the NYIT campuses.

First Year Experience Mentor Program

 

First Year Experience

Your first year of college is an exciting time of experience full of new people, schedules, locations, opportunities, a whole new way of life. Sometimes you’ll want a friendly face to help you find your way. NYIT’s First Year Experience (FYE) connects every student with an FYE mentor who serves as a resource and guide on all things NYIT. They know the ropes and will help you get settled and get help when you need it. FYE mentors also plan activities during the semester that are academic, social, and help the community.

Transition to College

 

Getting Involved

Coming to college can sometimes be a difficult transition - new schedule, new friends, more responsibility, and maybe even a new place to live. With all the changes there is bound to be more stress.
Are you sleeping enough? Eating enough? Staying out too late? Finding enough time to get all your work done and have a social life? Are you feeling lonely? Stressed out? Sad? We are here to help.
Counseling services are confidential and free for all enrolled students. We have offices on both campuses staffed with licensed professional counselors. You are always welcome to stop by. More information and a full description of services can be found here or by calling Manhattan at 212.261.1770 or Old Westbury at 516.686.7976.
