Nightlife: Night life is great at NYU. There is always something to do for all ages, even if you are under 18. There are so many events and great places to visit. In the center of NYU there is a park that people play music sometimes or entertain others with their magic tricks or other outstanding talents like dancing and teaching others.

Campus Dining: They have a variety of different foods to select from. Both cold and hot. There are also great places to go to in the school area. From Greek to Chinese to Mexican to Italian to even Japanese food. Its a great way to explore other cultural foods that you find interesting. Maybe even give you ideas for traveling to specific areas around the world. But if you would like to stay around the dining hall, there are some great spots to sit in. Outdoors and in, secluded or with groups. Plus you can add cash to your NYU ID card and purchase at the campus dining area or outside to selected areas, charged to you with no tax. Win, win situation if you ask me.

Campus Housing: I am not sure as I commute to school and don't know how the campus housing is. Although I would like to think it is very nice because I have passed by a few places that provide campus housing. Looked very comfortable and homey. Plus the environment is welcoming and relaxing.

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.
