College Junior

Nightlife: We have nightlife on campus? Where all the buildings close at 10:30?

Health & Safety: I haven't heard of any outstandingly crazy incidents. New School students are generally peaceful grazers.

3 College Junior

Academics: Lang employs round table discussion methods of learning, which is great in theory, but if the majority of people haven't read the material for that class day, it can make for some long drawn out silences for your two hour class. Always read! Be prepared!

4 College Junior

Transportation: NYC is easily accessible by subway, for $2.50 per entry with bus transfers, you can travel anywhere on a budget.

3 College Junior

Weather: We're going through a freak winter right now, so a lot of people's classes have been cancelled.

4 College Junior

Computers: Most of the computer labs are equipped with widescreen Macs, and usually have sections for Windows users.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's New York City. There's always something to do, a show to see, a free workshop being offered in the neighborhood, and tons of great and cheap food carts.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: People smoke in the courtyard all the time. Security is pretty nonchalant about it, and the most you'll get is a "Hey. Put that out, young man."

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: If you are coming in from out of state, and you have no contacts here, then and only then would I recommend applying for a semester/year contract in the dorms. Cinderblock prisons of little space and poor design, with only a view of the other miserable buildings next to you.

Campus Dining: Very vegan friendly alternatives, and your tastier than average fare for the rest of us.

College Junior

Athletics: We have an intramural basketball team, and a cycling team, and that's about it.

College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life? At the New School? Ha.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The academics overall are okay. They have interesting classes with pretty good teachers. There are no General Education Requirements.

The workload can be pretty intense. It is a very reading-intensive school so there will be a lot of reading and a fair amount of writing.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The academics overall are okay. They have interesting classes with pretty good teachers. Most teachers are willing to help if you need help. There are no General Education Requirements.

The workload can be pretty intense. It is a very reading-intensive school so there will be a lot of reading and a fair amount of writing. You can get easily 40-60 pages a night per class. Registration is competitive. Register AS SOON as it opens or you will be royally screwed.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of food places nearby. However a lot of them are pricey.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's New York City weather. Winters can be pretty bad because it snows and then the snow turns into slush and ice.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are interesting, and a lot of the professors are great.

However the school doesn't give a damn about you or your needs. You are a customer to them.

Guys & Girls: People here are all generally the same. Same interests, style, etc. There are very few guys in relation to girls. For most classes of 30 people you'll have about 2 guys.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The school itself doesn't have buses or anything like that to transport students. However, Penn Station is a short train ride away. You can take a taxi to the airport.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: There really is no real "campus" so you don't have any real place for students to have events and hang out. There are no real athletic centers. The libraries are a mess.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: The social scene is terrible. Everyone does their own thing. There is no such thing as campus life really since there is no campus.

The school is located in a great area so that helps.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs (especially weed) and alcohol are definitely a huge part of the social atmosphere. Many people here participate in them. If you look hard enough you'll find people who don't. Also, almost everyone smokes cigarettes.

Scholarships: They don't particularly care about you, especially in terms of financial aid. If you ask for more they will tell you to take out loans. They're very unhelpful. My advice would be if you know you can't afford it with the package they gave you then go elsewhere. If you're taking out loans you probably won't be getting your money's worth.

Computers: There are not enough computers on campus. They have PC's and Mac's. One building has several computer labs, but most of them only have 4-8 computers per building. The Wifi is pretty slow, and printing is a nightmare since they only have 2-3 printers in most buildings that don't even work half the time.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There's a lot to do since it's in the heart of Greenwich Village, a really trendy area. However it can be pretty pricey to find something decent to do.
