5 College Student

Academics: The academics are amazing. All the professors actually care about the students and are always want to help whenever they can. But the workload is very rigorous, there is so much to do and it feels like there isn't any time to do it.

Scholarships: I am happy with the scholarships and aid that the school has given me.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I am not an off-campus student but from what others say, it is very convenient and they are happy with their decision.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: I have never felt safe while I was at school!

5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: I love that it is not a closed college campus! It is open to the world and there are so many opportunities. There is always so much stuff to do when your bored or need a break from studying. And Washington Square Park is always so lively.

3 College Student

Greek Life: The Greeks are like normal people. There is not really special attention for them. And they are not hated. Everyone is indifferent.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The guards are super helpful and friendly as well. I have heard stories of them helping kids out during the nighttime and if they're feeling down as well which is great.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I guess kids do take drugs and drink from what I hear from others, but if you choose to not do so, you are not judged. It's easy to find people who don't partake in it.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food near the school are spectacular. There is so much to choose from and I get very overwhelmed and it has reached to the point where my friend and I keep a list of places we are planning to go to. These are also locations that fit our price range which is not so high. The discounts and the healthy options are the best as well.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students are very diverse and interesting. People can't rely long on stereotypes that we have been fed with because chances are they might be contradicted the minute they begin talking. Everyone has their own style and go with the flow of their lives, but are also able to hang out with others and have a fun time. I guess it's like a little human civilization of its own, there are relationships, friendships, etc.

College Freshman

Transportation: I don't really use the transportation NYU provides.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm not a huge party person, but you can always make a party of your own but also go look for one, anything is possible in new york city.

5 College Freshman

Weather: I love the weather in new york city. You never know what it's going to be like out there. It makes going to and from class fun.

5 College Freshman

Academics: NYU has an amazing nursing program. They have courses that really make you think and the work although seems like a lot at the time, are there to help me and it makes me grateful. Also the fact that I will receive hands on work in my third and four year is a huge advantage for this very popular field.

3 College Freshman

Computers: the school has a wonderful selection of locations where there are computers, however the wifi can be better as it sometimes goes in and out, but overall it works fine.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am currently an applicant for HEOP and their application process was smooth and simple and I am so grateful for that.

College Freshman

Athletics: I really am not a sports person so I wouldn't really know about the sports here, but from i see on posters and people, they seem to be well accepted.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: i really love this school, i can't believe to go to it, it's just amazing and the library is marvelous and the people are very diverse and nice!! Even as a native new yorker, I realize there was so much i have missed out

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They seem to understand when to intervene in certain situations and when to not

5 College Senior

Academics: Great learning experience both in and outside of the classroom.

NYU offers students a taste of the hustle and bustle they will most likely encounter in the real world once they graduate. It is an overpopulated institution, so you have to be ready to fight to gain certain academic opportunities, but cultivating such a habit may serve as indirect training for new graduates when they have to go about securing jobs in their respective fields. Life at NYU demands a certain kind of disposition; thus, it is not for everyone. For students who love NYC and the challenge and experience it offers, it is an exciting and ever-changing community. For those who desire a community-rich college experience, NYU is lacking in that area. However, you can make an amazing experience out of what the school does offer. Whatever your choice, get ready for a mix of demanding academics and wild experiences in the city. Finding a balance between the two is key at this big-city school.

Many students claim that the best part about attending NYU is living in New York City, while other students complain about the school's large tuition. Most often, students are dissatisfied with the lack of a campus or school spirit, and many students believe that the institution is run too much like a business, with the school using millions of dollars to make NYU a global institution instead of supporting its current students. Otherwise, most students appreciate the various benefits of living in the city, such as diverse and exciting nightlife options, a broad range of cuisines, and prestigious and diverse internship opportunities.
