After a long, hot (and hopefully relaxing) Summer, Fall has arrived in New York City. At CDS, we are so excited to welcome the cooler weather along with our new and returning students in data science in-person! While we are so happy to resume in-person activities and instruction this semester, we understand that the transition might be a challenge for some to navigate. With this in mind, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some resources for our community members:
Self care has never been more important throughout the pandemic. While we are returning to in-person activities we don’t want to forget that the pandemic is still ongoing and its challenges remain. The NYU Wellness Exchange provides certified counseling services for those needing help with. Sessions are available in person, over the phone or via chat. As their website states, “No concern is too big or too small.”
Many of our new students may be wondering how they can best get involved in student life at CDS. Be it through the CDS Graduate Student Community-Building Group or the Data Science Club, the best way to get involved is by getting to know our student groups. On the student group page, you can get all the details on groups and events happening at CDS.
New students might also need a little help getting to know the technological tools NYU uses to facilitate our programs. Luckily, there’s the NYU Student Tech Guide to assist! With resources like tutorials on NYU Brightspace and NYU Zoom, this guide will provide you with all the information you need to set up you technology for a busy semester.
If there’s anything the other resources didn’t cover, the CDS survival guide is sure to be of help! Exclusive to CDS students, the survival guide has everything you need to know about CDS, NYU and living in New York City. For access please email Kathryn Angeles (firstname.lastname@example.org), CDS Director of Academic and Student Affairs, for the password.
