Campus Quality

2 College Freshman

Campus Quality: There really is no real "campus" so you don't have any real place for students to have events and hang out. There are no real athletic centers. The libraries are a mess.

Campus Quality: The social scene is terrible. Everyone does their own thing. There is no such thing as campus life really since there is no campus.

The school is located in a great area so that helps.

Campus Quality: There isn't a campus per se. It's more like a cluster of associated buildings within a few blocks of Greenwich Village. This is typical for universities in NYC (NYU doesn't have a unified campus either). I actually prefer it to a traditional campus. It's easy to walk between all of my classes.

The computer labs are nice. There are multiple small libraries -- a humanities/social sciences library, and archive of design materials, and a music library. The New School is part of a library consortium with other universities, so we can check out books from NYU, Cooper Union, etc.

Campus Quality: This school has some really great majors, as well as an array of amazing courses to take. Some of them are a bit pretentious or 'out-there' but the work that is required of each student prepares them with the skills necessary of any line of work (especially in the NYC area). I've found there's a big focus on the writing, as every student is encouraged to think outside the box and be able to back up those thoughts with true fact (or philosophy). There really isn't a campus, but they're building a new student building which may solve that problem. There are activities available, but you really have to talk with the right people to know how to get involved. For example, there's a musical theater club, but it's entirely run by students. If you make a point to be active, you can be. If you don't make it a point, have fun in your awesome dorm, as these dorms are literally the best in the city (So much better than at NYU-- I lived in 20th st, with a view of the empire state building, and a decent sized suite which my friends at NYU didn't.)

Campus Quality: When it comes to hanging around on campus the choices are a bit slim. The campus dining hall on 13th street makes the best sandwiches, salads, meals, and flatbreads you could want and many students stop here between classes to get a bite to eat while reviewing class assignments. Within the lang building on 12th street is a atrium which includes greenery, building in seating, and allows for smoking. As for libraries, Parsons and Lang both have decent facilities but most students go to Bobst the NYU library for academic work (All New School students are allowed to use Bobst whenever).
