Overall, I think that this school was just not for me. The style seems to work for a certain kind of student - someone who is totally engaged in politics, and loves small classes with endless discussion and debate. I don't want to discourage anyone from going here, but I would suggest really thinking about what kind of college experience you want. This school does not offer anything like the classic college experience, and I wish I knew that before coming to this school. I do not feel like I am in college, but just writing essays and living in the city. There are few good things about my time spent here, but the best one of course was being able to live in New York City. One of the main reasons I chose this school was for the great location, and being able to be close to everything in nyc. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to experience new york for a year, but I am hopefully going to transfer out soon.
New York has everything that you could ever think of... the only downside is that it can get a bit expensive at some places..
There is no greek life that I know of at the New School...Once I saw a poster for a sorority which I thought would be interesting, but it seemed like many other students thought it was ridiculous and almost looked down upon that sort of thing...I think that a lot of students are not interested in that part of college life at this school.
Fall and spring are the best times to be in NYC.
Guys & Girls:
There are way more girls who go to this school than I had expected. In a class with 20 or so students, there are generally like five guys. In one of my classes, there are only two guys. Many people here love to talk about themselves and how they are changing the world...but occasionally you will meet genuine and nice people.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
