5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You wouldn't think it, but NYU has an insane party life. I go out Thursday, Friday Saturday but even during the week there is something to do. For a school that prides itself on academics, it came as a surprise as to how hard people party here.

Off-Campus Dining: It's New York City- you can find anything you want, at any time, and within walking distance.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It gets less strict as you move out of freshmen year housing. I've never really had a housing problem.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: You can't go wrong with an NYU dining hall. There are plenty of options and the food is MUCH better than the average university's.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: NYU has decent housing. As a freshman, the dorms are located closer to campus, but as you travel up the ladder the dorms become further and further away.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I really like all of the options, though I don't live "on campus." Some are far from my apartment, but I do enjoy the choices.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's nice, but rather expensive.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of food around, lots of options. Typical or even sometimes cheaper pricing for the city, and often there are student discounts.

Off-Campus Dining: How can you miss with NYC food?

3 College Sophomore

Administration: My academic advisor is helpful and nice as well as supportive, but the rest I have delt with in the financial office is basically an oh well attitude.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing near campus would probably be difficult to find, not to mention extremely expensive. Living in Manhattan is expensive. However, Queens and Brooklyn are great places to look and you can find affordable places. The subway will be your best friend getting in and around NYC.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's New York! You can find restaurants everywhere. And if it's not exactly in the area you are in, a subway station near you can take you there. There is a lot of diversity with cuisine in this city, which is great.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I'm not exactly the best person to ask. From what I heard it's great, especially since NYU is in the middle of Manhattan. you can hit up bars and lounges all around the city, which are all easily accessible through subway.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I believe that the administration is as strict as any university can be. I believe NYU's campus, being that it is around the city and not one whole campus alone, they do great considering.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: With the ultimate cost of the school, I wish they had offered more in scholarship and that the financial aid people would be more helpful

Campus Food: I think it is very convenient that a lot of the food places around the university accept NYU's dining dollars

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

NYU offers students a taste of the hustle and bustle they will most likely encounter in the real world once they graduate. It is an overpopulated institution, so you have to be ready to fight to gain certain academic opportunities, but cultivating such a habit may serve as indirect training for new graduates when they have to go about securing jobs in their respective fields. Life at NYU demands a certain kind of disposition; thus, it is not for everyone. For students who love NYC and the challenge and experience it offers, it is an exciting and ever-changing community. For those who desire a community-rich college experience, NYU is lacking in that area. However, you can make an amazing experience out of what the school does offer. Whatever your choice, get ready for a mix of demanding academics and wild experiences in the city. Finding a balance between the two is key at this big-city school.

Many students claim that the best part about attending NYU is living in New York City, while other students complain about the school's large tuition. Most often, students are dissatisfied with the lack of a campus or school spirit, and many students believe that the institution is run too much like a business, with the school using millions of dollars to make NYU a global institution instead of supporting its current students. Otherwise, most students appreciate the various benefits of living in the city, such as diverse and exciting nightlife options, a broad range of cuisines, and prestigious and diverse internship opportunities.
