5 College Junior

Athletics: Everyone likes and takes an advantage attending and even being a part of the sport teams.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Worth everything. Never regret attending this universal, opportunistic university.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It's in the heart of New York City and there so many opportunities to find something to do outside of class. It is the best place to meet new people and make lasting connections.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am uninterested in Greek life. It does a a fairly strong presence on campus. They throw the largest parties. Everyone I know involved in Greek life loves it.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports aren't a largely important aspect of the school. There is no football team, and our only D1 team is fencing. No one I know is involved in athletics or intramurals, although I know they have some presence in the school atmosphere.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am in a small program in the university, so I have an isolated view of the school. However, the opportunities presented to the students are outstanding. There are nearly endless classes to chose from all taught by the best and brightest in their fields. Coming to this university was the best choice I have made, despite its price.

4 College Junior

Athletics: NYU is a college that is very welcoming. The students and staff are really effectionate and express team leadership through the school. Everyone seems positive and love to interact with one another, especially in student life. Sports and social activities are planned and many students, as well as staff are encouraged to participate. NYU is more than just a school, it's like home.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The NYU Health and Safety Departments are always super helpful and I don't have any complaints about their performances.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everything about NYU has been truly great so far. The people that I have met are truly fantastic and super friendly, and the friends that I have made are the best. The one complaint that I have so far about my experience is the status of musical facilities. It would be nice to see NYU spend money on upgrading the practice facilities, as well as the music technology equipment. Often times, students are seen waiting for very long amounts of time in attempt to snag a practice room. In addition, some of the music technology equipment that I have used in the past was already broken. It would be nice to see an upgrade in Steinhardt's music department.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I can't complain about the number of emails that I have already received as a freshman regarding job opportunities. There are so many jobs waiting to be taken and I absolutely cannot wait until I gain enough experience to get a job in the industry. There are always alumni that frequently email back the students of the school looking for workers and interns. Simply put, there never seems to be a shortage of student career prospects.

Athletics: Since I do not frequently attend the athletic facilities or events in the school, I will refrain from providing a detailed review.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NYU has provided me the opportunity to explore not just the music technology field, but also the people that are involved in it. I'm beyond thrilled and proud to say that I am a member of the community. The people, friends, professors, and fellow students, have all begun to guide me in aspects which I had not expected. They have opened my eyes and have retaught me how to think critically and question the world we live in. I have learned so much and I am eager to learn more in the future.

Campus Housing: dorms are old and worn

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am in zeta tau alpha and like it very much.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not participate in sports so not that aware of them.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Challenging school but it is worth it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences mostly include some kind of interaction with the city around the university. The only reason I would potentially not choose this college is because there is no escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I honestly love attending NYU. Being in the city and part of a school that is so involved isn't for everyone but it has definitely been the right choice for me. If anything I sometimes miss the camaraderie that seems to come from school more isolated, but the opportunities I'm offered more than make up for it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am in a campus of NYU in Shanghai, which is a new campus and is still growing. Although the courses are not a lot but the teachers and staffs are truly the best. It's an honor for me to have the chance to study with these professors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Living in New York City is the greatest. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Studying in New York makes you grow up very fast and NYU is an amazing school. While I wouldn't recommend attending if you want a traditional college campus, NYU is home to some of the coolest people you'll meet. If you are independent and adventurous, you'll be very happy here.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: NYU is a fast-paced and demanding University, as befits a University in the heart of New York City. Being surrounded by people who are incredibly smart, creative, talented, and driven is something to expect here--so if that's what you thrive on, perfect! Don't expect it to be a 'chill' college experience, because it's a very very active one. I would choose NYU over again in an instant, even though cost of attendance is far too high and financial aid awards are far too sparse and low.

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.
