Additional Information:

Some say the Big Apple is the center of the world. Wall Street, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Central Park and a million other insanely interesting people, places and things make up the one and only New York City.

Rock legend Billy Joel sang that he was in a "New York state of mind." Classic author F. Scott Fitzgerald described NYC as a "wild promise of all the mystery and beauty in the world."

Using maps, photos, and other visual aids, speakers will address the cultural, economic, and political history that led to the "Big Apple" as we know it today.

This program will give attendees three of the six educational credits required under the J-1 visa.

Target Audience: Faculty,  Staff,  Alumni,  General Public,  Parents & Families
