Pre-Departure Orientation Recap

img_4408It was wonderful seeing all of you at the Pre-Departure Orientation on November 5th! We watched videos,  had a quick history of the Czech Republic, and an excellent Q&A with the Global Peer Mentors.  This interactive session covered everything you need to know as you prepare to study away next semester.

I am providing an online version of the presentation here as a helpful reminder of the important details we covered.  For those students who could not attend, I have shared a quiz to test their knowledge and make sure they know the essential information! If you received the quiz, remember it is DUE by Nov 18th!

Some key points to remember from the orientation:

  • All students must arrive on January 21, ideally between 9am and 7pm. Late arrival is NOT permitted!
  • Please note that housing is ONLY available during the dates of the program, January 21 – May 19! If you arrive early or leave late, you are responsible for your own accommodations.
  • All class attendance and course related field trips are mandatory.  Do not book personal travel until you have arrived and confirmed your syllabi.
  • Bring all the prescription drugs you will need for your entire stay. Make sure you talk to your doctor about getting a prescription for any medication you take regularly for the full 4 months. Do NOT ship medication overseas.

If you have any questions or concerns after you have read through the presentation, feel free to email me.  To be put in touch with an NYU Prague alum, email global-peer-mentors@nyu.edu.
