Greetings and welcome, or welcome back, to NYIT.

This time of year is always exciting, full of optimism and new beginnings. The start of the 2012-2013 year at New York Institute of Technology is no exception, with a student body from nearly 50 states and 100 countries that is academically stronger than ever before. Our interconnected NYIT community continues to thrive, with talented new administrators and faculty members, 14,000 students at seven global campuses, and more than 92,000 alumni worldwide.

Not too long ago, bags bulging with books, lots of paper, and writing implements heralded the launch of the academic year. Today, backpacks and messenger bags appear much lighter, containing less paper and likely a tablet, smart phone, or other mobile device. To help accommodate you in this brave new world, we, too, have made a number of upgrades this year in our digital communications and how we connect with you. For example, the 2012-2013 NYIT course catalogs are our first exclusively digital academic catalogs, saving paper and printing costs. And soon, our website will feature responsive design so that you may view it effectively regardless of the device you are using.

Study after study indicates that students who engage in their college experience inside and outside the classroom experience a higher degree of success in both their professional and personal lives. NYIT, as a model 21st-century global university, provides many opportunities to help you challenge yourself intellectually and expand your comfort zone as you prepare to embark on your professional life.

I encourage you to seek out co-curricular experiences and hands-on learning outside the classroom—from internships and study abroad programs to professional development activities, conferences, and guest lectures. And it’s never too early to engage with the Office of Career Services; your time at NYIT will move quickly and their array of workshops, programs and one-to-one counseling opportunities will help you get a head-start on preparing for a successful career or post-graduate work.

There are also myriad social opportunities, with more than 30 clubs, NCAA and recreational sports, and campus life events. You may even consider venturing in to our Manhattan campus for an event at the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway.

Stay informed and connected to make the most of your college experience. Follow NYIT on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Read the Student Update e-newsletter to join the discussion of how to enhance your NYIT experience and contact updates@nyit.edu to share your news. Check the digital signs throughout campus for updates on events and activities.

Please make the most out of your time at New York Institute of Technology. I look forward to seeing you on campus.

Best wishes for a pleasant and productive academic year,
Edward Guiliano, Ph.D.
President, NYIT
