4 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They have numerous opportunities for work-study and employment which are accessible through Wasserman Career Center.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are great, however, considering how much it costs it should be. Yes, it is NYC so the cost of living in the city is expensive. There are some good dorms and some that should require some tlc.

Athletics: There are posters for the games, however I never went to one or heard of someone who went to a game. There is definitely school spirit but I would say we're not too crazy about it.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Brittany Hall and I think it's a great freshman dorm. I share a bathroom with four other girls, but it's much more preferable than sharing a bathroom with a whole floor, like at some other colleges. It's pretty spacious and the dorm is clean overall, and it was newly renovated a few years ago.

Greek Life: There's Greek life at NYU, but I haven't really experienced anything; they're presence is more subtle.

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.
