5 College Junior

Overall Experience: NYU is a dream school. People go on to become the biggest names in their industries from here. Any industry.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I found my mentor in my first year, but I have had some weird experiences. One professor basically hated his students, one hasn't changed his curriculum in 30 years, one fell asleep during a student's presentation. Others have been amazing - going out of their way to make sure every student succeeds. It all depends on who you click with.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Lafayette is a weird one-off option pretty far from campus, but in my opinion is the best dorm. Prices are insanely high for all the dorms.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: They do a lot of fundraisers. I'm not a Greek, but I don't feel excluded by any Greeks.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic facilities are old; they are being renovated, but they should have been much longer before now. There is not enough space to handle all the students plus paid memberships, which NYU offers to the community, which I think is ridiculous.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities to get involved. The school is not particularly great to its commuter community.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: it really depends on the situation.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Finding a job within your program of study is really easy, but you actually have to pay attention to your emails in order to do so.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Small classes are better than lecture classes because they allow more room for groupwork and making friends.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: its really fun and easy to make friends with people you live with.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There's sometimes not enough machines for everyone to use.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors really depend on whether or not they're a lecture or small class. Small classses generally work more closely with you. I like small classes better, but most of my classes are lecture classes and are not as engaging as small classes.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are drugs and people use it. People will offer but they don't make you, force you, or make fun if you don't.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: You just gave to find the right people or place to go to. A fake would make it easier.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Bsu and the Caribbean association have the best parties and after parties. But the best ever happen off campus.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: They are very accepting of everyone.

5 College Freshman

Academics: We are set up like a classroom with the counsolers, not just a huge auditorium of people. It is really easy to get I contact with them and they place you with someone that can really help with your major. They examined the process many times just Incase you forget which is great. The classes I have are very small which I like because I can get to know the teacher. It comes in handy for letters of recommendation. The professors really enjoy teaching and are the best in their fied. They are always prepared.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is security at the lobby 24/7 and there is also public safety. They can pick up if you don't feel safe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love almost all of my professors. Especially my social foundations professor. She knew her stuff, love what she was teaching, is well known, and uses her etching to influence your life for the better.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I want to be a doctor and have meet so many doctors that attended this school. They tell me to contact them for anything.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's fun you meet great people. Wall are thin but it's okay. RA and building has events and you can go to many places for free or really cheap. For example we went to Fright Fest for $5 and they have the money back when you show up.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are multiple gyms which is great. The only bummer is they are closing the rooftop track.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is very diverse and you meet people from all over the world. The library is amazing and the access you have to anything is fantastic. It is not a regular campus and I can take a short subway ride to Times Square if I'm lazy. Or just go shopping in Soho.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Take your classes seriously and pay attention to how you register for classes and how it lines up with your degree goals. You don't want to end up paying extra money or end up staying longer than you need to.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've already said all I need to say in my other answers, I feel.

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.
