Hi everyone, and happy spring semester!

We hope you are settling in as the new term begins. Here are some important dates for our first few weeks:

Monday, Feb. 1 – Graduation Application Audits due to Registrar (for those planning to graduate in May, refer to emails sent by TC, print out must be signed by an advisor)

Tuesday, Feb. 2 – Last day to drop/add classes

Monday, Feb. 8 – Lunar New Year (NYC schools closed)

Monday – Friday, Feb. 15-19 – Mid-Winter Break for NYC schools

Tuesday, Feb. 16 – Last day to change points for courses


Advising Meeting

Happy December!  It’s a busy month with lots of festivities and finishes, but we’re also looking ahead to beginnings.  Spring Registration starts next Monday, on the 7th.  For program classes, approvals must be submitted this week after advising.

Please plan to attend one of the meetings on Wednesday, December 2nd:

  • 3-4:10 pm in Zankel 304  (especially for full-time students)
  • 7:15-8:15 pm in Grace Dodge 545

One of these sessions is required for full-time students; the meeting is highly recommended for all.  We’ll review the spring schedule (please refer to one sent as online info not current), answer questions, discuss graduation procedures, and offer advice.

See you soon!



A Happy Friday Poem


You be the leader, and I’ll be the cheer,
You be the pilot; I’ll let you steer.

You be the talent, and I’ll be the scout,
You be applause; I’ll be a shout.

I’ll be the sleep, and you be the dream,
I’ll be the banks; you be the stream.

I’ll be the roots, and you be the pine,
I’ll be the fence; you be the vine.
