3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I know NYU is super strict about Greek life actually.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I work at the gym and it's not that bad. NYU isn't really a sports school anyways, so not sure what everyone really expects.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had the best experience here. I cannot believe that I've been able to go to a school that prides itself on its diversity. I never thought I could feel so comfortable here, and this is a place that I feel is my home.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For the most part, it's pretty good. I did have a consistent rodent problem last semester at Carlyle, but other than that, I guess the rest wasn't too bad.

Greek Life: Three of my roommates from freshman year are in Greek Life and they often times don't get much sleep because of their involvement.

Overall Experience: I love it here but the workload is really unbearable sometimes and I can't say all of my professors have been amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The students keep me happy at this school. My fellow classmates have taught me so much about my own passions and more. I am way more culturally aware and educated mostly because of them. I have had a few really influential teachers as well. Like at any school there will be negatives. I feel as if NYU is greedy at times, oppressive of Greek Life organizations, and also very backwards when it comes to signing up for classes or finding housing. They are not to accommodating but the resources, friendships, and knowledge they provide makes it worth it for me to keep attending.

Overall Experience: It's a little troubling but my school in particular tries hard to find internships to suit a particular social work student needs.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As being in the engineering school the courses are pretty straight forward but a diverse amount of class if offered both in brooklyn and manhattan. The professors are mostly nice with a sprinkle of bad ones. Some class sizes are large and can fill up whole auditoriums and can be small at 10 students.

Overall Experience: I havent looked much into internships and jobs but ive heard that it is relativly easy. NYU is one of the best places to begin networking.

Campus Housing: I live in a small 3 bedroom and it is way too crammed. Some rooms are bigger. The up side is that the dorm houses other colleges as well as NYU so you are able to meet alot new poeple.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It honestly wasn't what I expected. Going to the eningeering branch of NYU, the campus was located in Brooklyn and was not up to par. Constructions was going on, but still bare with me. The manhattan campus and the broorklyn cammpus lacks a strong connection. However despite that, New York City is an extrodinary place. NYU has been my dream school, im happy I choose the school and I would not change it for the world. I am truely excited for the upcoming year as I am planned to live in the manthattan dorms and experience another chapter of new york.

Overall Experience: I think overall experience as a first year student was great. I just wish that there were some things that could be changed, such as accommodating for financial aid when the school itself is so expensive...

Overall Experience: I believe the school has a great atmosphere and is worth it in the long run for jobs, and since I am in the user experience field in NYU Tandon (Integrated Digital Media), they give a lot of opportunities for us to intern and job search.

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.
