4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love NYU. The school itself is good, but the opportunities that it has offered me through my chosen major are fantastic. Class sizes are small and intimate. Professors are understanding.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have met some of the greatest people here. NYU has tons of professors who care about you and what you learn and it makes for a great learning environment. Unfortunately, the school is extremely overpriced and the administration spends its money irresponsibly. As a result, students are left with crippling debt while the administration parties at their vacation homes in the hamptons.

Overall Experience: It's a good school. It's not for everyone. It's weird socially, but academically I wouldn't trade it for any other school.

Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants in NYC are amazing! The only drawback is the cost, and sometimes the crowd (depending on where you go and when). I would have loved to eat out more, but with the expense, it was better to rely on my meal plan most of the time.

Academics: I'm in the Silver School of Social Work, which is a pretty small program. It's very tight-knit - you get to know people right away! I feel like Silver is a big family, and since we're all dedicated to helping others, we've always got each others' backs. Small but mighty :)

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.
