4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms: best!!! i live at lafayette residence hall, tenth floor
Bobst: bad (very busy!! unless you reserve a study room) study spots during finals weeks! rest of the time: awesome!!!
Piano rooms reservations: pretty bad to get them if want to reserve at kimmel, but just go to the steinhardt music building!
Kimmel: best spot to relax! and study at times if you do not get bothered by some conversations (not too much noise, but still)
food at dining halls: expensive!
housing process: love it! especially sophomore year!

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Kimmel student center, BOBST library, ITS computer labs, dining halls, washington square park, Coles Sports center,

1 College Junior

Scholarships: Not Enough – There is definitely not enough financial aid, everyone is struggling with this ridiculous tuition except those who were raised in privledged families.

Academics: Some classes here are difficult and frustrating but theres other classes

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: You can find almost any type of club here, and if you don't find any you like, you and your friends can easily start one. There is such a diverse group of people here that you're bound to find someone who is looking for what you're looking for.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The organic chemistry lab and class in new york is extremely difficult and sometimes they have ridiculous rules that they require from you. its a scary experience but gen chem was really great

3 College Sophomore

Technology: Computer Review – they are fairly fast but there needs to be more computers in this university. sometimes people lose the work they were doing because they automatically shut up but as of now they are getting replaced so this situation should get fixed

4 College Junior

Athletics: It's big to a cetain extent, but due to the fact that most sports are indoors, sport at NYU aren't as popular as they could be in there were more athletic facilities outdoors, especially in the summer. On a plus side, it's always cool inside, and the free pizza, and T-shirts during sports ralley don't hurt.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Crowded but Protected – NYU Public safety works around the clock to ensure the well being of students at all times.

5 College Junior

Local Area: The City That Never Sleeps. Walking down W4 st provides you with an array of Vegetarian restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: nyu stern is really professional. you can see students wearing suits in every corners. everybody is talking about internships, stocks or other business stuffs.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Not Strict – NYU Stern is pretty competitive, but it's not as competitive as other universities like Uchicago. School doesn't care students' social life

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of options but most of them are costly. The locations can vary. A big factor in deciding where to live off campus is proximity to campus and environment. The school does not help students find off-campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: Stern students have free printing so that's nice. The computers are new-looking and easy to use. They also have choices between Macbooks and PCs. Depending on where you live, you might want to have your own personal printer though.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It is wonderful. Everyone thinks you're uptight and emotionless. The workload is hard but the curriculum and internship/job opportunities are well-organized and numerous, respectively.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's Pretty Good. I've had a lot of good times for sure but there are times where it's only been okay or bad. It's hard to meet new people because after freshman year, people aren't as willing and you'll have close friends in freshman year, but after, it's hard to keep in touch or they transfer or they're too far. There's many issues so it can be hard, but it's also fun.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Very Diverse – Most people are very liberal and accepting of anything. There's also a lot of different races, but some issues are that people of the same race tend to hang out together. That is the one thing I think people are most closed off about. If they see a group of whites/blacks/asians, and you're not pat of that race, it can be intimidating to approach them and be friends with them.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Good but Sometimes Pricey – There's a lot of good places to eat but they can get pricey. Restaurants by Kimmel and Bobst are pretty good and relatively cheap but once you go out like to Union Square or more uptown, things can get pricier.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Pretty Safe – Lots of security in buildings but not much outside. Only the buildings are limited to students so anyone can walk through the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The library is open until late and there is always room to study there. The reserve proposes 2hours loans of the books used in courses, which is great if you don't have a book for whatever reason.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Now it's winter so it's been very cold since December. It also snowed a lot so one day classes were totally cancelled. It is also not the best thing to do to walk in the streets now because it is slippery and the melted snow make huge puddles which you should avoid walking into. But when it's not snowing you generally can see the sun somewhere in the clouds, and at any rate, you're in nyc so you can always enjoy your days even if it's bad weather!

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Shuttle Buses – There are shuttle buses running for NYU students from their dorms to campus. They run pretty frequently, so you can take them whenever you don't feel like walking or if it's bad weather. The one thing is that you cannot predict NY's traffic. Other than that it is a very convenient transportation.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: It Is NYC – I have just arrived and am agreeably overwhelmed by the number of events of all sorts, in and outside of the university: cultural, sports, career, volunteer, there is something for everyone. The people are very helpful, open and friendly, they especially talk to each other a lot even if they do not know the person. There are many shops and people so walking to campus is always a pleasure, we never get bored here.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Close to subway. Provides shuttle bus for faraway dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Process Was Average – The process was fine and the financial aid staff are very helpful. Definitely suggest calling or better yet visiting the financial aid office because they will answer all your questions and give you different pointers to look out for. However in the end i received very little in financial aid.

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.
