4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is shuttle service from Poly to the NYU main campus, which is pretty slow due to the NYC traffic. The best option would be to take a subway, which is cheap and fastest mode of transportation across the city.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Personally, I didn't witness any crimes on campus or any emergency situations. But I see police on the campus often and I feel safe.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The curriculum is very good and we have a distinguished group of faculty members, who are aces in their own fields. There are times when the workload is too much, but a clay pot has got to go through fire before it can become hard and endure the difficulties that come in it's way.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are a couple of parties at times. There's a limited amount of drinks so that no one gets totally wasted. Many people drink and most of us like to have fun.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic facilities are very good at the main campus of NYU. Many students participate in varsity sports and intramurals. Due to the NCAA rules which state that international students who haven't done their undergraduate studies from US aren't allowed to participate in the varsity sports, take part in the intramurals.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: People won't pressure you; if you want to be involved, you can be, if you don't, you aren't - but it's not difficult to find drugs.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym on campus is awful. NYU main campus has a really nice gym, but it's kind of far.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Almost everyone has a scholarship, but students don't always get the aid they need or deserve.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: There are several options in both subways and buses, so the transportation is excellent, but the subway is much faster. The shuttle to NYU main campus sucks, though.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is standard New York weather - it rains often, it gets very cold and there's nice weather sometimes - but it's all cancelled out by the relativity to the city.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The internet speed is great when it's working, but the internet goes out unnecessarily often. It is completely necessary to have a personal computer.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: New York City is a stop away on the subway, and there's plenty to do there, but the local atmosphere isn't as colorful (still more fun than rural living, though).

3 College Freshman

Academics: The academics are challenging and the curriculum is great, but often the teachers are bad quality.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They usually let the first offense go and will not get the police involved, but the strategies they use to catch people (ie. trailing certain people) are not fair.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know about living by myself.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't dorm so I wouldn't know.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I barely know any Greeks on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a lot of Indians and Chinese people.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I have no idea what that means.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Some professors will notice your achievements and speak openly with you if you are willing to talk to them.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: You can walk, ride the subway to anywhere or take the bus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: New York City tends to have a lot of rainfall in the summer, but that doesn't really look bad.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you don't want to eat near the school, you can always go into the city to eat more.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus isn't that strict. Some people are more lenient than others.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I'm not sure. I haven't seen a lot of drug users on campus.
