4 College Senior

Diversity: Many Asians – There are many Asian and white students and a mix of others. It also depends on the school and major though.

5 College Senior

Party Scene: It's New York – Sure, it can be a challenge if you're not 21 but there are many, many options. There are almost always all-ages shows to go to and many places in Brooklyn don't card if you're really trying to drink. There are museums that are usually open late on Fridays, plays, movies, musical events, gallery openings. I mean, it's New York. There is always something going on any day of the week any time of night or day. The problem is usually choosing between the many options.

Local Area: Thumbs up – Everything you want, you can get here. Also the city offers many opportunities and places to hangout and have fun anytime 24hrs.

1 College Junior

Athletics: There there if you want them and fairly easy to get involved in. I think the best story that I have about NYU Athletics is that I was watching a NYU V. UChicago basketball game. Not a single person on the court was above 5'8 and the only time people left the fitness room to watch them play was when the (really good) pep band started to play.

Guys & Girls: The female student population at NYU is very diverse attracting every type of person. The guys are generally gay guys or wimpy nerds. Dating an undergraduate guy can be hard though not impossible.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: NYC subways run 24/7, and NYU shuttle buses run till quite late at night all day, and there are numerous subway stations and taxi stop points flanking NYU.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: it's new york city...if you want it you can find it. Subways and taxis are always running so you don't have to worry about getting home. Can be expensive if you don't shop around.

4 College Junior

Weather: not much effect of weather, except under winter storms!! In my 3 years of school, school has been closed only 3 days. classes are very close, in walking distance!

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.

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.

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.
