Event Details

NYU's ultimate stereotype is put to the test at the NYU Communication Club and Dept. of Media, Culture, and Communication's event, #NYUnities. Though NYU is often criticized for not hosting a community on campus, there is a strong presence of community online, with over 25+ pages dedicated to cultivating communities with theme lines that only NYU students can understand.

At #NYUnities, we try to understand why social communities work so well for NYU, when it seems to be more difficult "IRL" (in real life).

We approach the event from the academic, grass roots, professional, and administrative levels to understand why there is collective understanding when someone tags #NYUProblems or #NYUgirlprobs. Our panelists feature renown social media theorist, danah boyd, NYU Memes admin, Alec Foster, HashtagNYU's Communications Manager, Nick Jensen, and last but not least, Huffington Post College Editor, Jessica Kane.

We hope that you can join us for this exciting event, full of food, great convo, and tweets!
