Off-Campus Housing: NYC is very costly for any off campus housing situation

4 College Junior

Majors: They like a well rounded individual. They do not just look at GPA. They look at the whole package which I think is important. Applying was easy and I was very happy with the process

Off-Campus Dining: You can get mostly anything you could want. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is great!

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: It does not matter which way you leave campus, because whichever way you go there will be a restaurant nearby. Brooklyn is full of restaurants and the college is right next to a Jewish community so there are many kosher restaurants nearby as well.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: There is no typical internship. Every student does what they are interested in. Depending in where you are interning determines the pay and hours. Many Brooklyn College students work part or full time while they are in college.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I was part of the Scholars Program at Brooklyn College, and I am thankful to have been a part of it. My goal starting college was to get into dental school and the Scholars Program help made that possible by affording me different academic opportunities and volunteer opportunities.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Since Brooklyn College is a commuter college most students do not live on campus. They either live nearby and walk or drive to campus or live far away and have to take trains and busses to get to campus. Therefore there are not so many rules on campus except for the fact that the student center is an alcohol free building.

Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Since the college is very diverse, it is impossible to describe the average student--because there is none. Every student is unique. Some dress according to their religious guidelines and others dress however they want.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Brooklyn College is an extremely diverse campus. It is a commuter college with people from various different backgrounds, religions, countries and communities. The College's main pride is that it is one of the most diverse campuses with many of its students being the first in their family to attend college.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: There is a cafeteria on campus with two restaurants. One is a kosher pizza store, and the other is a typical campus cafeteria restaurant. There is also a kosher Subsational in the Hillel, which sells meet sandwiches. There are two different Halal carts around campus that also sell food. Outside the campus, there are many other restaurants as well as a bakery.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Brooklyn College is a beautiful campus with a lot of land. On a nice day, students will eat, study, and relax on the grassy quad. many television shows and movies film on the campus as well. Besides that, Brooklyn College has many honors programs for students with great academic achievements.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Since Brooklyn College is a commuter college, campus life is not so great. There is a huge library though with many study rooms, tables, and desks so that students can study for exams. The library has computers that students can use and they also have laptops that they lat students borrow for the day. There is a student center, but unless you are part of a club or need to go to a specific office there, you probably will not go into that building often.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: The local area is great. There are many restaurants, shops, and grocery stores near campus. There is a train a block away from the campus so that students can commute between their home and the campus. Manhattan is only a train ride away, so the nightlife is great too.

5 College Junior

Facilities: NYU has a lot of great opportunities and resources for students to take advantage of - academic or otherwise.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Life on campus is fun, but you have all of NYC at your disposal which is one of the biggest things NYU has to offer. MOMA, the Metropolitan Museum, The New Museum are all within twenty minutes. The parks. The nightlife.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Living in NY is definitely a plus. The neighborhoods near the main NYU campus are very nice and obviously, as per the average renting prices in NYC, are very high. However students can usually find ways to lower these costs and live near enough that living off-campus makes pragmatic sense.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
