The School of The New York Times offers a variety of non-academic or extracurricular activities for students throughout the summer. There is an expectation that students may have class activities, field trips and homework after 4pm. Residential Assistants (RA) are available to help students with their class projects and students have access to residence hall study spaces that facilitate individual and group work. Signature events open to all students such as the Photojournalism Challenge, Speaker Series and excursions to explore New York City neighborhoods and iconic landmarks. As an enhancement to this year’s programming, Residential Life staff will offer “club” type activities. They will likely focus on sports and fitness, culture and the arts and community service. Students will have access to additional support and specialized equipment through the Media Lab to allow them to create portfolio projects for their classes and their own interest. During previous summers, students and their friends have enjoyed exploring New York City on their own.
