5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors at this school are insanely qualified and understanding, although some teaching techniques are better than others. Courses are rigorous and demanding, but only if you don't stay on top of your classes. Most classes are lecture style, which I love because it helps me to focus better.

Overall Experience: NYU is one of the most renowned schools in the USA, and a degree from this university signifies a lot all over the world. Most NYU students don't have problems finding work after college.

Health & Safety: Campus is very safe, although its main part is a public part open to the entire city (Washington Square Park). Therefore, there are the occasional strange people that you want to stay away from coming to the park.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The cost is very high, especially accumulated with the already high tuition. That is why a lot of students decide to commute from home instead. Dorms are very nice and conveniently located, since they are at 5 minutes from most classes. Security is strong.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Most students are non-Greek, and that is considered normal. There are a few small sororities and fraternities that focus on charity and community work, and others that are merely social. I've heard that the latter ones don't have good fame, but the meaningful ones are very organized.

1 College Junior

Athletics: There is no athletic scene at NYU. Possibly because the campus is immersed in the hustle and rumble of New York City, sports aren't a big part of student life and only a very small amount of people display school spirit.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Going to NYU has been life changing and educational. Every student comes from a different place, and everyone has a different and unique story. There are various communities you can be a part of, and the classes are challenging in the best way. However, it comes at a great price. Tuition, the price of books and the cost of housing at this college is unattainable for most working-class families. It puts most students in great debt.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall I can say that my experience has been a memorable one. I have learned a lot and am enjoying my experience in college so far. I can't wait to go back to school this upcoming semester and see what new experiences I am going to come face to face with. I have made good friends, met supportive staff and am on way to figuring hat I wan to do with my life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the school offers a lot of help in helping us figure out what we want to do and study. It also offers a lot of opportunities to participate in jobs or internships that are of our interest.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never encountered any dangerous or unwanted situations while at the school. It is not only me but my friends also have not encountered an unfavorable situation. They offer a lot of support when it comes to making us feel safe as well. I can't complain.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They have good options and are considerate of the different financial situations that people could be in. I do think that the prices should be a bit lower but they are not unfair. The dorms have good communities and the RA's are constantly making activities to allow the students to meet new friends and have new experiences.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greek life but from what I have heard, those who participate in it really like it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Honestly I don't know much about athletics in my school. In my school athletics is not a big thing. Not a lot of people know what is going on with the sport teams in the school. If you want to be involved with the sports, you kind of have to put in on your part to find out what is going on.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience so far has been in between because it is different to what I am used to. The way that people carry themselves and their attitudes are very focused and to themselves. The difference between two people who are standing next to each other can be humongous. I like what the school has to offer but I am not trhilled about the community they have.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is large, so classes are large as well. It's harder to understand certain information, especially in a class where there are over 600 students trying to understand the same thing as you.

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.
