Astronomy Association

The Astronomy Association's mission is to generate interest in science and to increase knowledge of astronomy through discussing current astrological events, attending observations held at local parks, and meeting with guest speakers invited to club meetings. Club members also participate in community events on astronomy, give an individual talk on a topic of interest each semester, and publish research in the Eyepiece Newsletter -- the official newsletter of the National Amateur Astronomers Association.

Tea and Philosophy

Tea and Philosophy aims to escape the incessant movement that is city life and recede into a more peaceful place – within a community of pensive, wandering, and curious souls through the celebration of teaism and study of great thinkers and into one’s own mind. The Tea and Philosophy club meets once a week to engage in the sampling of teas and in the dialogues created by philosophical thought. Any NYU affiliate, regardless of school or year, is invited. Each weekly gathering will exhibit two different types of tea and a philosophical reading/concept/question to be discussed.
