2012 Grad Alley

For NYU Community

The Class of 2012, their families, and their friends are invited to attend the 16th annual Grad Alley, a Commencement eve celebration marking the accomplishments of our graduates, on Tuesday, May 15th, from 5:00-8:00 pm.

The square is alive with an air of nostalgia and excitement along West Fourth Street, Washington Square East, Gould Plaza, LaGuardia Place, Schwartz Plaza, and in the Kimmel Center's 3rd floor Market Place and 4th floor Eisner & Lubin Auditorium. Banners will serve as guides while you stroll down Grad Alley enjoying the entertainment as well as jugglers, mimes, Lady Liberty and more. Snacks are available while taking in the sights and entertainment.

Guests will enjoy a number of entertainment venues including NYU Dance Fever on Gould Plaza, where you can dance the night away or just relax to the sounds of DJ Marcus; NYU’s Got Talent Performance Stage in the Eisner & Lubin Auditorium starring our very own students;  NYU Jazz Café on LaGuardia Place, featuring the NYU Steinhardt Jazz Orchestra with a number of special guest performances; and our NYU Pep Band on Washington Square South.

Wristbands will be included for all graduates that RSVP for NYU Commencement at Yankee Stadium
