A class where smaller groups from the lecture meet separately with a TA to discuss class concepts from the lectures, work on worksheets, etc.
My chem lecture is on Monday and Wednesday, and the recitation meets on Thursday.

This must be unique to NYU, because nobody I've talked to at any other school has heard of it. It's a small group of people from a larger lecture who have to meet with a grad student for a smaller class session that allows students to discuss the material covered in the lecture.
I might possibly pass my liberal art class because we discussed the lecture in my recitation.
