The NYU Higher Ed & Student Affairs community has been the highlight of my experience. New York University is the most diverse institution I have ever attended, and the Higher Ed program benefits from that diversity. My peers arrived in NYC with a variety of backgrounds, passions, and past experiences that they brought into our classroom discussions. While curriculum and reading lists can be repeated anywhere, it’s the community with whom you learn that shapes the experience. I’m incredibly grateful for the brunches and secret Facebook group and supportive text messages, and for all the personal and intellectual insights shared in our classrooms.
