5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NYU is an amazing school because you not only learn in the classroom but you learn from the city itself. There are wide and endless range of classes to take from intro to drawing to queer history. The professors are all helpful in trying to help you succeed in the future.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: lots of options but its super expensive, but its still better than finding a place on your own. The rooms are totally random some are huge and spacious some are so small. Really depends, and they are all pretty far from campus, but the buses come pretty often.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Before I even chose to go to NYU, people were always saying things about it. How if I went there, I wouldn't have to struggle for a job. It has lots of opportunities for jobs as well as the value of the degree.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I've enjoyed living at Third Avenue North a lot. There's always stuff happening. It is a cool place to be, and I love having a kitchen.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: No one really knows about it unless you look for it. I'm disinterested in it so I don't know much about it.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't know much about the athletics department, but it seems to be doing alright.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NYU has a variety of aspects that make it great. It's different in many ways than other universities. It's the most global university so there is the opportunity to mingle with people from all over. It encourages diversity and embracing who you are as an individual. They are on top of what is happening and seem to genuinely care about getting each student to reach great places and getting the knowledge they desire. I would choose NYU over and over again.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: 212-443-9999. That is the number you learn to know by heart. The Health Center is absolutely amazing.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You are being taught my professional in their field.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone interns, and everyone starts interning early.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Third Avenue North and I absolutely love my dorm. I guess the only downside would be that it's about a 12 block walk to most of the main campus but there are free university shuttles so that's not really a problem. It is the largest freshman dorm building in the country with about 1,000 residents. All of the rooms in this building are either apartment or loft style which is exciting to have as a freshman. I live in a four person suite (two bedrooms with two people in each bedroom) which has a kitchen complete with a full size fridge, oven with stove top, sink, and cabinet space. Another perk about ALL NYU dorms is that there are no community bathrooms. Every room, regardless of the building, has its own bathroom. Yeah, you have to clean it, but it's still way more convenient.

Greek Life: I really don't know enough about greek life here to accurately represent it. I guess that kind of serves as an explanation of its presence itself.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: This is not a school for people who want to go to the campus football game every week- we don't even have a football team. There are definitely athletes here and they are recognized but hardly celebrated when compared to other big state schools. This is just not that kind of environment. Personally, I don't mind that at all. There is an extremely diverse population of students here studying a wide array of topics. The community here isn't as cliche as many of my friends' schools. You have to work a little harder to meet people but the people you do connect with, you really connect with. I don't think the lack of sports enthusiasm hurts the college experience at all but some students prefer a different environment.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel like they accept everyone! SOme teachers are great some are really bad (do not care, dont put effort into classes)

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.
