5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Dorm parties not the greatest because of RAs, bars/clubs really fun!

Diversity: NYU, like NYC, is extremely diverse and accepting, for the most part.

Drug Safety: Smells like weed everywhere around WSP, but if you don't want to drink or do drugs, there's not really anyone putting pressure on you other than yourself.

Health & Safety: During the day I always feel safe, at night you shouldn't walk alone to be safe.

Health & Safety: They know that not everyone is used to NYC standards of safety, so there's always a safe place to go in you're not feeling so good.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not in your face, but have social events that are pretty good, no official Greek houses, and people are pretty dedicated to their organizations once they're in

3 College Freshman

Athletics: No football tea, no one really pays attention to most of the sports, but some, like basketball and a lot of the women's sports, have pretty big crowds

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a big school, sure, but if you're willing to put work into it, you'll get a lot out of it

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Hayden, very clean, newly renovated! Great community, always fun things to do with RAs.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I've had very little involvement with the Greek Life, but I know some people who are a part of it. Some seem to love it, others dropped out before the end of the first semester.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing itself is fine, but I had no say in where I would live, and my suitemates sucked first semester.

Greek Life: It isn't overbearing or in-your-face, but there also isn't much to be said about it in general.

Athletics: To put things into perspective, the only Division 1 sport here is fencing...

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the location and the people that I have met thus far. It is, however, very different from my hometown so the adjustment was a bit rocky at first.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: NYU creates a safe space and informs their students on health and safety.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People seem to get what they want eventually. A degree from NYU means a lot.

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.
