5 College Senior

Local Area: I grew up in new York City and it continues to amaze me. The Village is a wonderful place to study and NYU has dorms that are farther away that give us more exposure.

Scholarships: NYU is often really bad about financial aid and in my four years here, I've had to beg and scream for additional assistance, even when my dad lost his job.

Greek Life: They do lots of charity work and actively try to reach out to the non-Greek communities. Non-Greek students tend to apply stereotypes to the Greek students before getting to know them. Greek housing is the Penthouse floor of one of our dorms,

Overall Experience: The classes are mostly small so the teacher pay plenty of attention to the students. I've only met one professor who has been difficult to work with.

Overall Experience: The career center offers plenty of opportunities to connect and network with businesses. There's also plenty of great internships to help you break into your desired field.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It took me a while to get my fafsa processed by the school and I didn't get my money until well into the first month of classes.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There's plenty of police and security in the area so its pretty safe. I don't know much about the Student Health Center but i've heard its good.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Personally I've had great experiences with off campus housing but in order for you to get your money's worth you really do have to live someone far from campus. For a reasonable price, you're looking at a 30 minute commute at the very least, otherwise you might as well just live on campus.

Greek Life: If you're in Greek life then you'll have a good time. If not, you can still go to all the bar/club parties. But most parties take place in bars and apartments, so it's irrelevant.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life sucks at NYU, theres hardly any chapters or anything. It doesn't affect anyone, but it sure separates NYU from being a traditional campus

Off-Campus Housing: I have housing, and I dont think that as a student you should worry yourself with paying rent, and buying groceries when you can have housing and a meal plan

Campus Housing: The people are very nice, as well as the staff.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: It really depends if you actually go to these parties. In New York, there will always be parties and the clubs surrounds our campus - so it really just depends on the kind of person you are.

Health & Safety: Its an ongoing concern that NYU takes into full consideration and executes several plans to ensure the safety and wellness of their students.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Frats and sororities are very academic-oriented. I didn't know they existed at NYU until recently. Low-key.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Fairly lenient. There are lots of safety officers around at any given location.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: NYU has resources for any type of issue; the students are knowledgable about health/safety.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: New York City has an cuisine from countries you've never even heard of. Some areas are very very cheap, some are very very expensive. Depends.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: They say college is about the experience; New York City is the best place for that.

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.
