2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I've never really scene it around campus.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are computers all over the campus. Although the wifi can be frustrating at times.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: NYU is strict in that the school will enforce their school rules. But the school can be lenient and forgiving in some cases.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't do any kind of drugs and neither do my friends. So I wouldn't know. But the policy at NYU is enforced.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a very small part of NYU. Not many people are members and those that are don't make it too public because they don't have frat houses.

Computers: The printing services aren't in dorms which would be nice but otherwise there are plenty of locations. Additionally, the wifi is great and is available in almost any location within the "NYU bubble"

Off-Campus Housing: Living in New York City is inevitably expensive so for now I'm sticking in campus housing (not that this is cheap either).

Majors: My program specifically in the drama department, is awesome at preparing students for the job market.

Majors: No matter what program I ended up in, I wouldn't be fully confident at finding a job because being an actor, or even pursuing any career in theater, is extremely difficult. Still, my program at NYU does a great job at practically training us and from the beginning exposing us to the industry.

Athletics: I have not yet noticed sports at all.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Lots of dining, great location, lots to do.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I know a lot of people who drink and smoke, but they never forced me to do anything I didn't want to do.

3 College Junior

Academics: The nursing program's workload is a lot, but doable. The nursing program crams over 200 students into one lecture hall.

3 College Junior

Academics: The professors are okay, they could be better. Registration process can be a pain because it crashes a lot.

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.
