The August 28 back-to-school issue focuses on our Union Square/Greenwich Village campus neighborhood. Read about an exciting development, The University Center on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 14th Street. Scheduled to open in the fall of next year, the University Center will include 16 stories of state-of–the-art classrooms, dormitories, libraries, public performance spaces, and places to relax, read, and catch up with friends.
