Off-Campus Housing: We Do not have any off-campus housing since we don't have the actual campus. However, we do have an area called "campus" where most of the classes are.

Campus Housing: I have lived in University Hall and now living in Alumni Hall, which has singles. When I was in the University hall, I really liked how our whole floor got friendly each other and got together for countless meals. Now in Alumni Hall, we do not have a lot of contact with our neighbors but we have 100 percent privacy in our life. I think every NYU dorms have pros and cons. Some are close to Campus and some not.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: My program is called Liberal Arts Studies. It is for students who do not have major for now. Most of our classes are related to philosophy and writing. Do not apply for this program unless you love to write!

Computers: NYU Stern gets 1000 extra pages of printing.

Scholarships: Expensive tuition, but not much of financial aid or scholarships.

If you try hard, school might grant you financial aid or scholarships but highly unlikely.

Greek Life: If you admire greek life, then don't come to NYU.

Fraternity and sorority exist, but not a big deal here.

Drug Safety: Is there any place in the States where drug and alcohol don't exist?

In New York City, however, it's kind of easier to have an access to drug or alcohol.

It is not like having a big party at frat house or something. You just gather up with your friends, go to a bar or club and drink. That's it.

1 College Junior

Athletics: Gyms are pretty good.


School spirit? fan support? team performance?

Nope. don't exist.

Academics: I won't say academics is the best at NYU. However, it is great.

Stern is recognized as one of top business schools. There are many notable Tisch alumni who are working in film industry, comedies, photography and so on. There are also many other schools and colleges within NYU that provide various options. It won't be a problem to find classes that you want to take and actually learn. It just depends how you use your circumstance.

There are many internship and job opportunities in the city. No problem with that!

Computers: There are some computer labs in Bobst. Everything's fine.

However, you'll need a laptop.

You'll have to write a lot of essays in MAP courses and you don't want to go all the way to Bobst to write your essays.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

View all previous student authors

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.
