3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I wanted to go somewhere else and I'm still trying to swallow the fact that I'm here

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: It's a pretty safe school although I'm pretty sure that for there was someone living on the fifth floor of the UC this entire semester

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: As a writing student it's a little hard to find valuable internships when everything is catered towards marketing for some reason

3 College Junior

Athletics: If a student wants to be fit they will usually take a dance class

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have been exponentially comfortable at my school given the accepting nature of the students and professors alike. All identities are welcome without question and many topics are discussed with regards to the experiences of different groups of people. I find this extremely important especially in a day and age where we still so such dominance of the straight white male in a culture where there are so many queer identifying (gender and sexuality) and people of color who wish to further their educations and endeavors without having to face the inherent prevalence of blatant privilege. Our school is extremely aware of this and makes a safe learning environment that I feel is rare at many other schools.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like the people and the discussions are great.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The New School is not for everyone, but it's incredible for those who prefer a non-traditional urban college. I specifically attend Eugene Lang School for Liberal Arts. Academically, I love the school. There are very few required courses and for the requirements that you do have to fulfill, you typically can still choose from about 10+ difference courses to meet those requirements. Students are given a great autonomy for choosing courses and there is an option to design an individualized major (which is what I am doing). Course topics are very interesting and specific. Most classes are small, seminar-style courses. The teacher sits at the table with the class and they are heavily based on discussion. Despite their larger size, lecture courses are also heavy in discussion. Most first year students would agree that the difficulty of the coursework is equivalent to that of an AP course in high school, or possibly even a regular high school course depending on the class and professor. Most coursework is reading and writing intensive. As a liberal arts school, there are little to no exams given and a lack of emphasis on STEM subjects. All of the teachers that I have had are extremely engaging, as well as passionate, knowledgable, and accomplished. They genuinely care about their students and make class as interesting as possible. An aspect of academics that a lot of students (including myself) have trouble with is the feeling that there are not enough practical courses. For example, although the courses are interesting, they mostly discuss theories and society, rather than teaching skills. For this reason it at times feels like students are wasting money on tuition. The New School is not for everyone but for this who seek curricular autonomy and interesting, discussion-based courses, it is an excellent choice.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Growing up in Queens public schools, I'm more than comfortable with the amount of diversity at Lang. It's something I know I won't find anywhere else, unless I had gone to a CUNY. But Lang's open curriculum was another deciding factor that has made all the difference.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The students and teachers are dedicated and passionate about what they are studying/teaching. I think everyone's want to make a difference is part of what makes the environment so special. There's a mix of people who talk about change and those who actually try to make a change.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is amazing! I'm so lucky to be attending, my only disappointment is that it is so closely compared to NYU and often left to transfer over. Though these things don't directly effect me, it does sometimes make me question whether or not I should've tried harder to get into NYU

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's 70% female. Guys are hard to find.

Off-Campus Dining: There's always plenty of food options available, ranging from fast-food to vegan and organic options.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The New School has a long history of scholarly activists. I can't answer a lot of questions on campus housing security since I'm living off-campus.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have one of the best financial aid packages, because it's both need and merit aid. But I understand that not everybody else has had the same amount of aid.

Campus Food: Very fancy food however the taste not so great.

3 College Junior

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.
