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.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The New School and its colleges are in very central parts of Manhattan, Eugene Lang College especially. Its buildings are in Greenwich Village, on 12th and 11th street, with NYU and Washington Square Park at a 5 minute walk South. Food in the area isn't great, but one subway stop or a 10 minute walk will get you to some fantastic eating spots in Manhattan. The same goes for shopping. However, it's off a bunch of subway lines, and I never have trouble getting to class on time even when I'm running pretty late. The college is on some quieter and prettier streets around the area, and is only a short walk away from the rest of the Liberal Arts buildings.
