5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I personally do not mind it because i did not go there to waste my time doing things I ought not to do.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity is obvious on campus, it is as real as oxygen. I mainly see it in the ethnic and religious background.

5 College Freshman

Computers: The computers are very reliable, and fast.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I did not see any use of drugs on campus.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: I am not able to give much response to this.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I honestly do not like to rely on anyone for academic help, but I have to anyway because the academic courses are over doing the "challenge bar" in every area possible. And I just do not like how their is no leniency between the professors and the different courses. For example, a professor knows that I have other teachers and that this is college, and yet for some reason he or she will give a huge essay assignment anyway. Also I think that college should move from the traditional academic structure. I think that everyone would benefit from a college as this: A place where young people can come and receive hands on training and experience for their desired career. To me this sounds like a great college to attend, also it will actually feel like college rather than "13th grade," I do not think that academics helps us improve in career preparation at all because if we gave every adult in a America a re-test on 5th grade math, the results would show that 99% of "successful" Americans can barely pass a 5th grade examination test.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I did not have much time to browse around, but the pizza shop was not bad at all, the only problem was the unfriendly prices.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not dorm, I commute.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I only attended one sport event at my campus, and to be honest I don't know what to say about it. It was nice because I like to watch soccer, but it was also not so comfortable because there was not a lot of seats for the supporters.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not spoken to anyone who has done off-campus housing, but if I did my overall response would be: "Just another expense to eat at your dollars."

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food was nit bad, and the lunch area was welcoming, always clean and has a wonderful view.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: We did not have any Greek life to my knowledge.

Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I did not live off campus while I was attending. My friends did and they seemed nice enough, but the town around the college has an extremely high cost of living, so they were never very cost effective.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The chair of my department was amazing, I loved her and her commitment to her students. She really changed the way I see the world. The department did lose a couple of professors during my time there so I hope they have hired some since then. The curriculum was great, the workload was rightfully challenging. Internships would be a great addition.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Security often seems absent, though I know they are around. Often Freshman women are harassed by senior men, particularly those involved in sports.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I honestly rarely saw a student under the influence or never saw one consume drugs.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Nyack has the highest diversity for a private christian school in the nation. But they are not good at making space for that diversity and conflicting perspectives. LGBT students are highly persecuted and often forced to leave or are dismissed.

3 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Drinking and partying are both frowned on at Nyack, it is a private christian college so student who are coming are required to sign a waive saying they will not drink.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Basketball is a huge sport, but the other sports are often overshadowed. The facilities are pretty good, but in a far corner of campus and there are not instructors to help non-athletes find their way around the machines.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The dorm buildings are older and thus there are many restrictions on what you can have. But the RA staff does a good job of enforcing the rules and keep folks in line with cleanliness standards. The dorms are beautiful with stunning views, particularly Simpson Hall.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The buildings are old and need some fixing, but it is home.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There are no sororities or fraternities. My answers in the above questions are random and do not apply to my school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are a big part of the school. Games are attended by many.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Some days it is beautiful. This winter however, it has been filled with snow and a lot of it. The campus tends to clean it up fast, but the students themselves take their sweet time cleaning their cars off and moving them.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since the campus is near the Palisades mall, there are a great amount of late night options to go to eat. There are also many restaurants in town that are very friendly and provide discount for being a student. Many also deliver.
