LESBIANS NIGHT OUT IN NYC! (11.25.2015 - DAY 355)
Albert Gallatin Albert Gallatin , Secretary of Treasury under Thomas Jefferson and James Madison , declared his intention to establish "in this immense and fast-growing city These New Yorkers believed the city needed a university designed for young men who would be admitted based upon merit rather than birthright or social class. On April 18, , an institution was established, with the support of a group of prominent New York City residents from the city's merchants , bankers , and traders. The university has been popularly known as New York University since its inception and was officially renamed New York University in Although the impetus to found a new school was partly a reaction by evangelical Presbyterians to what they perceived as the Episcopalianism of Columbia College ,  NYU was created non-denominational , unlike many American colleges at the time. The university purchased a campus at University Heights in the Bronx because of overcrowding on the old campus. As a result, most of the university's operations along with the undergraduate College of Arts and Science and School of Engineering were housed there. NYU's administrative operations were moved to the new campus, but the graduate schools of the university remained at Washington Square. This extension would later become a fully independent Hofstra University. In the s, under the leadership of President John Brademas ,  NYU launched a billion-dollar campaign that was spent almost entirely on updating facilities. A follow-up article found that while some conditions had improved, contractors for the multibillion-endowment university were still frequently subjecting their workers to third-world labor conditions. The article documented that these conditions included confiscation of worker passports, forced overtime, recruitment fees and cockroach-filled dorms where workers had to sleep under beds. According to the article, workers who attempted to protest the NYU contractors' conditions were promptly arrested. Many workers who were not local were then deported to their home countries. This has caused, even with the addition of a substantially sized engineering school, for the acceptance rate to significantly drop. NYU was the founding member of the League of World Universities , an international organization consisting of rectors and presidents from urban universities across six continents. The league and its 47 representatives gather every two years to discuss global issues in education. Jay Oliva formed the organization in just after he was inaugurated president of New York University. There are at least two versions of the possible origin of the university color, violet. Some believe that it may have been chosen because violets are said to have grown abundantly in Washington Square and around the buttresses of the Old University Building. Others argue that the color may have been adopted because the violet was the flower associated with Athens , the center of learning in ancient Greece. Cultural setting Washington Square and Greenwich Village have been hubs of cultural life in New York City since the early 19th century. Much of this culture has intersected with NYU at various points in its history. Morse , a noted artist who also pioneered the telegraph and created the Morse Code, served as the first chair of Painting and Sculpture. The University rented out studio space and residential apartments within the "academic" building. As a result, they had notable interaction with the cultural and academic life of the university. By the s, Washington Square Park was nationally recognized as a focal point for artistic and moral rebellion. As such, the Washington Square campus became more diverse and bustled with urban energy, contributing to academic change at NYU. In the s the area became one of the centers of the beat and folk generation, when Allen Ginsberg and Bob Dylan settled there. This led to tension with the university, which at the time was in the midst of an aggressive facilities expansion phase. Included in the "NYU " plans are increasing resident and academic space, hiring additional faculty, and involving the New York City community in a transparent planning process. Additionally, NYU hopes to make their buildings more environmentally friendly, which will be facilitated by an evaluation of all campus spaces. External productions are also occasionally held in NYU's facilities. The library is visited by more than 6, users each day, and circulates more than one million books annually. The Fales Collection houses collections of English and American fiction in the United States, the unique Downtown Collection, documenting the New York literary avante-garde arts scene from the s to the present, and the Food and Cookery Collection, which documents American food history with a focus on New York City. Bobst Library also houses the Tamiment Library, which holds collections in labor history, socialism, anarchism, communism, and American radicalism for scholarly research. Tamiment includes the Robert F. The Kimmel Center for University Life was built in as the primary location for the university's student services offices. The School of Law built Furman Hall in , incorporating elements of two historic buildings into the new facade, one of which had been occupied by poet Edgar Allan Poe. The residence hall, named "Founders Hall", accommodates approximately undergraduates and contains a host of other student facilities. It is currently the tallest building in the East Village. The Woolworth Building in the financial district is home to NYU's professional studies and education programs. The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World , a discrete entity within NYU, independent of any other school or department of the university, is located on East 84th Street,  while the New York University Institute of Fine Arts , a graduate school of art history and fine arts, is located at the James B. Duke Building at 1 East 78th Street. The result of a partnership between Tisch School of the Arts and the Singapore Government, it offered Master of Fine Arts degrees in animation and digital arts, dramatic writing, film and international media producing. The campus opened in fall with the intention to enroll approximately students. Until then the school operates from a campus located in downtown Abu Dhabi. It was set to have about 3, undergraduate students, the majority of whom would be Chinese. Lehman , former president of Cornell amongst other positions, will serve as vice chancellor and have "free rein in academic affairs".

Many rooms are spacious and contain amenities considered rare for individual college residence hall rooms, such as kitchens, lavatories, living rooms and common areas. Most freshman residence halls are located near the Washington Square area. While nearly all of the residence halls that primarily house sophomores are located near the Union Square area, two former residence halls were located in the Financial District and one is still in use in Chinatown.
