    Um–it’s New York University (NYU).

      This is exactly how the information was presented on a sheet from the school which our photographer took a picture of so I could write this. I was hoping to doublecheck and link all the universities/colleges but had to run off to a meeting.

        Yeah, it’s NYU, and in the picture she’s literally wearing a hoodie that says “New York University” on the front. No biggie.

        Congrats to all! It sounds like you all have bright futures ahead of you!

          Somebody else sent a note today saying two other schools’ names may have discrepancies.
          This is the list provided by WSHS at the event on Wednesday afternoon:

          Having gone through the college research/application process as a parent, I know there are multiple schools with similar names. (Boston College, Boston University, Boston Conservatory, for example.) Any of the parents/students involved who have a correction, we’re at Thank you!

    Yesss!!! Go Athletic Scholars!!! Remember there is a great community behind you.

    I know there is a State University of New York.

    Given the she is wearing an NYU hoodie, it would be new York University in new York city. And there are many universities of new York. It’s a whole system of schools just like California’s system. They are called SUNy. Ex new Yorker speaking here

    Thanks to everyone providing the correct information regarding New York University-it would seem WSHS submitted the not quite accurate info, but as WS Neighbor mentioned–No biggie.

    To confirm, Hailey will be attending NYU, located in Greenwich Village in Manhattan.   (New York City–NOT Kansas)

    And Thank You to WS Blog for providing coverage of this and countless other WSHS events!

Sorry, comment time is over.
