Marhaba 2013 Welcomes Class of 2017

For the members of the Class of 2017, the Marhaba orientation is a chance to learn about the inner workings of NYUAD, meet staff and faculty members, get acquainted with their fellow classmates, have a little fun.

A group of bright young leaders, dreamers, scientists, artists, entrepreneurs, inventors, writers, and explorers arrived at NYU Abu Dhabi at the end of August with an eagerness to start new journeys and expand their horizons. The University welcomed the Class of 2017 during Marhaba 2013, an exciting week of informative sessions, city tours, and fun-filled events. Throughout the week, the freshman class built strong connections and adjusted to their new environment. Marhaba was also a great opportunity for students to explore the University's resources, meet the staff, and get acquainted with their professors and mentors. Check out the gallery to see just a few images of Marhaba 2013.
