3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not receive what I needed and it is very hard and gives a lot of pressure to keep up with the tuition and housing. I wish they would give more, and it is an ongoing process, but will go through it.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It is in midtown manhattan so there is access to any food really whenever you want and that is great. A few restaurants we have cafeteria money too so that is the best, although we all wish we had more. You could even take a subway anywhere else if you get tired of the food and you can find whatever type of food in the city.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing could be better. It is VERY expensive, and every year it is going up. The convenienceness of being close to campus is GREAT. It is right next to the school building. The social atmosphere could be annoying at times but it is alright. Some dorms can be harder to get into, only if you're from a town long hours away could you really get the best dorm, which is even more expensive, but worth it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not very athletic, I really work out in the housing gym when I want to. There is not the most school spirit, but there can be sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is a very safe school, I've never really heard much about campus crime, or really any safety problems unless it was from a homeless person outside, but even then it is fine. There is security.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The athletic centers are nice. The student centers are great. The libraries don't have the best hours, but it is a place to study most of the time. Being located in the city, there really are no green spaces. There are great events and traditions for jewish holidays.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had a chance to have an internship yet at the school, however I know people that do and they like it and get paid normal wage. I do plan on having one because they are very beneficial.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I don't really have a program, but a school. I got into Stern College for Women, which is regular liberal arts studies college. It is great for sciences and I love that. Most important criteria for admission I would say is GPA, essay, extracurriculars, and SAT score. There is no abnormal process.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We only have AEPI for boys, and they have their own housing in Washington Heights. There is a stigma to it, however, whoever wants to join can try out and see if they get in.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration process is a hassle, as it is in any other school. Do not be surprised to be closed out of almost every class you want to take sometimes. The professors are great in the science department. The english department is very challenging to get a good teacher because most graders are very very tough in the department. However, overall, we have GREAT teachers. The workload could be a lot depending on what class you take. They have study center and peer tutoring which is something everyone should take advantage of. Studying in the library is GREAT.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: As of now, I love the academics. I may be taking 9 classes next semester with an 8 hour lab week, not including the research I will be doing, but I love it. Especially for science, it is great. The workload is very hard, because I am taking both secular classes and 3 jewish classes. There are many facilities out there to help you which is great. There is a great career center that can help with job opportunities and internships as well.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: This depends on how one person would like it over another. It is very subjective. I don't mind that almost all the students are really the same. Yes, you find variety, which I have found and I like. But I don't mind that many people are the same. Mostly all are jewish students. People come from different backgrounds and political beliefs, mostly all have same religious views, and sexual orientation is not usually LGBT.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's ok, however, there is not much variety to the food. It gets really old really fast, and compared to all my friend's schools, it should be better. There comes a point where you simply cannot eat the food anymore. It is expensive, however it is all kosher, which is the reason why. We do have restaurant money (around $250) which is great.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: My school is in midtown manhattan. It is a GREAT area. However, it is VERY expensive so most students do not live in apartments that are off-campus. However, there are different buildings that a student can live in so that is great. There are many apartments available, they are simply too expensive. However, there is great transportations between buses, subways, taxis, and it is close to penn station. You won't have an easy time parking however. It is very safe.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food may be kind of expensive, but you have a caf card loaded with money and I always had enough. There is Chinese, burgers, salads... always something.

4 College Junior

Majors: The workload is okay but the biology classes are fairly difficult.

4 College Junior

Majors: The biology department is large and extensive. Many classes!

1 College Junior

Parking: Parking around here is terrible - you can circle for half an hour and not find a spot.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It's good in that men and women can hang out easily, but that can lead to some inappropriate behavior...

4 College Junior

Academics: It's pretty good, and professors are willing to meet with you and help much of the time. Small classes!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know of a single Greek person on our campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm married so I live on the uptown campus so I'm constantly surrounded by people, both men and women because girls come uptown too! SHabbos can be hard though.

3 College Junior

Weather: The weather definitely affects the campus shuttles running but that's to be expected... when it snows, they stop running.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I'm really not aware of any drug use at the school, though I guess it must exist. Seems very small then, though!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants are everywhere in NYC, even across the street
