Students dating tas
We experience our TAs in a much more relaxed, casual setting.Unlike a professor’s lecture, a TA’s recitation involves discussion and gradual acquaintanceship.“If the TA or professor does not have any actual power over the student’s opportunities (i.e.grades, extracurricular involvement, employment, etc.), then a dating relationship would not violate university policy,” he said.One NYU senior dated a TA during the summer after her freshman year.After the semester ended and grades had been submitted, she sent him a message over Facebook to go out. I would have been attracted to him in any environment,” she said.But it turns out that not all student/TA relationships are deemed inappropriate.
We spoke with several NYU students who have dated their TAs before.All of this makes them much more likely candidates for dating and relationships.But it shouldn’t come as any surprise that dating a TA while still enrolled in the course is deemed “inappropriate” by NYU’s Faculty Handbook.She was 18 and he was 24, and they dated for three months. For others, dating a TA may have other pressures, even after the course is completed.She never felt any dangers from dating him because the school year was over, the course was completed, and she had already received her grades. Another NYU senior is currently dating a Ph D student, who was formerly her TA.
