Scholarships: I am having a tough time, my aid has been suspended due to low grades. Which are due to working to pay excess tuition not covered by finical aid. I would love to go to school but I don't know if I will be able to afford it.

Athletics: We could use a gym, as the local and state gyms in the area are very expensive, we have a small room that they teach gym classes. For the tuition being paid they should offer more

Local Area: The local area is great but very expensive, too expensive for a working college student. The locals hate that we have a school in their area. The hate our annual block party which is an amazing way to meet people, and promote local business.

Greek Life: We don't have greek life at my school.

Overall Experience: Overall, I think that this school was just not for me. The style seems to work for a certain kind of student - someone who is totally engaged in politics, and loves small classes with endless discussion and debate. I don't want to discourage anyone from going here, but I would suggest really thinking about what kind of college experience you want. This school does not offer anything like the classic college experience, and I wish I knew that before coming to this school. I do not feel like I am in college, but just writing essays and living in the city. There are few good things about my time spent here, but the best one of course was being able to live in New York City. One of the main reasons I chose this school was for the great location, and being able to be close to everything in nyc. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to experience new york for a year, but I am hopefully going to transfer out soon.

Off-Campus Dining: New York has everything that you could ever think of... the only downside is that it can get a bit expensive at some places..

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no greek life that I know of at the New School...Once I saw a poster for a sorority which I thought would be interesting, but it seemed like many other students thought it was ridiculous and almost looked down upon that sort of thing...I think that a lot of students are not interested in that part of college life at this school.

Weather: Fall and spring are the best times to be in NYC.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are way more girls who go to this school than I had expected. In a class with 20 or so students, there are generally like five guys. In one of my classes, there are only two guys. Many people here love to talk about themselves and how they are changing the world...but occasionally you will meet genuine and nice people.

Campus Housing: The 13th st dorm is not the best place I've ever lived, but it is not terrible. The basement is a dining hall, and the building is located very close to classes. It was a good place to live as a freshman, but students need to move out once they become sophomores. The social atmosphere felt generally non-existent, as many people do their own thing.

Diversity: The majority of students here are not too diverse, and it generally does not feel too accepting if you don't fit in with the smoking, hipster crowd.

Academics: Most of the classes I have been in so far are generally the same set up and style. Lang has many of the seminar style classes, which basically are just discussion based courses. I generally disliked this format, and tried to sign up for lecture and studio based classes - but I know this style works for many of the other students here. The workload is a lot of reading and writing, and for the most part, there are very few tests. I would say the most popular topics revolve around social justice, as well as being heavily saturated with politics.

Athletics: There are no teams, but I heard about a couple of intramurals.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The school itself does not have much of anything, but since it is NYC, people generally find somewhere else to go.

College Junior

Party Scene: We have nightlife on campus? Where all the buildings close at 10:30?

Health & Safety: I haven't heard of any outstandingly crazy incidents. New School students are generally peaceful grazers.

Academics: Lang employs round table discussion methods of learning, which is great in theory, but if the majority of people haven't read the material for that class day, it can make for some long drawn out silences for your two hour class. Always read! Be prepared!

Local Area: It's New York City. There's always something to do, a show to see, a free workshop being offered in the neighborhood, and tons of great and cheap food carts.
