5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Theres no better nightlife you can find anywhere else in the world. Clubbing is generally the way to go in the city and you can find parties literally every single day of the week.

Health & Safety: The school does an excellent job in making sure the buildings are safe at NYU. As many people and threats New York poses, NYU does a great job.

Local Area: The overall atmosphere that New York University gives off is inspiring. Just being solely located in Manhattan's Greenwich Village is a perfect mixture of sophisticated urban life, as well as aspiring educational ambience.

Administration: Average. It's a big school. Things get done when they get done...but because tuition is so expensive, perhaps more money should be used to find efficient people.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I was told that I have on campus housing as a transfer student (which is apparently rare), but haven't heard back yet when and where I'll be living. School starts within a month.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: I say it's great because New York is such an active city. You can find a party anywhere if you yourself are not the party already.

Scholarships: NYU is really expensive, and unfortunately, the financial aid was not given generously.

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.
