2 College Senior

Campus Housing: COUNTLESS issues with housing, both on a personal level and with the admistration of the housing. It's nice, but it's not a good community to live in, and the people in charge don't know what they're doing.

Local Atmosphere: NYC! The city that never sleeps. There's always something to do within a few blocks of where you are.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: There's a sorority here, and that's about it. No greek life. Students are "above" that sort of thing.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It's NYC. It's expensive, very small apartments that aren't the cleanest, unless you're willing to fork over more than $1500 a month on Rent to share a 3-Bedroom in a nice part of town.

5 College Senior

Transportation: You're in NYC, with some of the best public transportation in the world.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I've never had a run in with it, but counseling is available.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Academic policies are in place, but I've never seen them enforced.

5 College Senior

Nightlife: To clarify, the nightlife is great because you're in New York City! The nightlife at the school itself isn't that great. No parties or anything, people just go out and have fun around the city.

1 College Senior

Athletics: No one cares about our athletics, because they are virtually non-existant. There's a basketball, soccer, and xc team, but no one goes to the games and they aren't publicized very well university-wide. Most of the students don't care about sports and are proud to be at a school that doesn't idolize the football or basketball teams.

Diversity: As far as racially, this place is SUPER diverse. Tons of international students from Europe and Asia. However, the whole school is really progressive and liberal in their beliefs, so not too diverse there. And economically, everyone seems to be from wealthy families who just give them money, so it's hard to fit in if you're a middle-class American here.

Academics: The teachers really don't care. They're totally ok if you turn assignments in late (like WEEKS late). Students don't give off the impression that they're willing to learn, and the classes are never what their class descriptions say they are. The

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Lots of culture, art, music to inspire students.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There is always something to go to.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Large array of students from various backgrounds.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The Subways are everywhere! It's extremely easy to go anywhere!

4 College Freshman

Weather: Hot summers and cold winters. New York City has a showcase of every season from colorful falls to blossoming springs.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: There's always something to do from bar-hopping to just sitting and hanging out in Union Square. Subways are everywhere and make traveling around the city very easy. Dorm parties do not exist. Most people go to clubs or bars or secret parties in Brooklyn. It depends!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: New York City has some of the finest cuisine and greatest spots to eat. You can find something amazing for five dollars or something amazing for thirty dollars. The options are endless.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The New School is one of the most diverse schools in the United States. You always see someone from a different background or place in life.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A creative school in the middle of New York City! I would do it again for sure! So many opportunities at you feet.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus security can be strict. It depends.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most students only do campus housing for their freshman year. I stayed the first semester of my freshman year at the predominantly freshman dorm, Stuyvasent Hall. It's between First and Second Ave, so it's in the heart of the East Village and about a mile walk from classes. The location is great because there is so much going on and many people are always outside the dorm at night smoking and talking. It's a very social scene, but the quality of the rooms are not that great. Also, the RAs are not that helpful. Each room is apartment style with a kitchen complete with a stovetop, microwave, refrigerator, and sink. Some rooms have a table and chairs for the suitemates. Then there's a bathroom with a tub/shower. Since they're NYC apartments essentially, rooms can get rats or cockroaches if they are very dirty.

I recently moved to Kerrey Hall, which is the newest dorm building and it is much nicer than Stuy. It's a mostly upperclassmen dorm that is bright and a block away from classes. The location of the dorms are wonderful!

3 College Freshman

Majors: There are not an immense amount of different majors at The New School, but they are pretty flexible depending on what school you go to.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People from all over the world! There's definitely more girls than guys, but there's so many people in New York City and nearby colleges that the amount is abundant.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am a Music Technology major, which is on track with the major at Eugene Lang College for Contemporary Music. The music production classes are in audio classrooms, comprised of Macs and keyboards and M-boxes for recording. Software is up to date and the professors are helpful. Many of the music teachers are musicians or DJs on the side that have a creative style of teaching. The workload is definitely manageable.
