3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I made a lot of friends and done a lot of cool things through housing though the rules are tight and the people in the housing department are not nice people.

Athletics: NYU's sports involvement is limited but has very nice athletic facilities that are good for all levels & interests.

Overall Experience: I love NYU because of the people I've met, opportunities I've had and places I've been. But NYU is a big business that will try to take your money in many ways. It also claims to have many things that it does not like diversity in the classrooms--majority are still wealthy, isolated, white or Asian students- faculty is majority white.

Academics: The registration process will make you want to crawl into your bed from frustration. But I guess it's kinda like that at all schools. In the end, people do generally get most of the choices they want. A tip? Check back onto Albert constantly for your classes even if the ones you want are closed or full, because sometimes they open them up again.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Sometimes it's pretty dangerous at night, so you should probably walk in groups late at night. Otherwise, I've felt pretty safe, and nothing has happened so far.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far the courses I have had are alright. I've had some good teachers and some bad teachers.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Going to NYU means something to an interviewer. It's known all over the world. It's ridiculously expensive, and the degree that you get might not be worth all that money, but you'll have connections to so many jobs. I've also used Career Net to look for jobs, and the website is really helpful.

Campus Housing: Of what I've seen the dorms all have their pros and cons. I live in a triple, which is the cheapest, and it isn't that bad. It's actually pretty fun. The dorms that have dining halls downstairs might have cockroaches and rats though. I think the best options for a first year student would probably be Weinstein, Rubin or Hayden, since they're all pretty close to campus. If you don't mind being farther away or paying more, U-Hall and Brittany are nice too.

Overall Experience: NYU is expensive. Not sure if its worth the money yet, but it definitely has its perks. I've had some pretty great teachers, and there's always a lot of fun activities. There isn't really a campus, but it doesn't bother me. For me its actually better than a campus because you aren't closed in, you can go out and explore. You'll never be bored with the whole of New York as your campus. If I could do it over, I'd probably still choose NYU. I think that of all my options, it was the best.

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.
