Health & Safety: There so much support within NYU. There is always someone to talk to if a city big as NYC.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: If you go to all the class and get to interact with the professor, you will enjoy your selected courses. Also, you will be able to meet more people through your classes.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: NYU is one of the top schools in the United States. With all the opportunities the school provides, it is almost guaranteed that you have all the tools to be successful after graduating from NYU.

4 College Junior

Academics: NYU have different schools within itself. The Nursing school is very intense, but you meet so many different students and professors that will help. Each course offer a lot of knowledge, skill, and training to advance your nursing career.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are good, but the courses can be very intense and even they can get too busy.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is very diverse when it comes to internship and other opportunities at NYU.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: NYU security is very adequate. None of the students are allowed in the school or on campus without ID. There is even a security guard that search bags to assure there aren't any weapons.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: NYU is very serious about keeping its students safe. The school's reality show that is shown to all freshman at the presidential welcome in the beginning of the school year features real life scenarios that students go through. The show constantly reminds students of the Wellness Center's hotline in case they need medical attention - whether that be for birth control, to get a shot, or to see a nutritionist to name a few possibilities - counseling, to learn about relaxation methods such as yoga, to report a sexual assault, and more.

Since NYU is an open campus, students pass by homeless people and drug dealers in Washington Square Park, by residence halls, and in the general area. Due to the increased threats and risks of walking on campus at night either by yourself or with a group, NYU offers Safe Ride vans. Safe rides can be used by students from midnight to 6:30 a.m. I've used safe rides multiple times in the early hours of the day to safely get to a residence hall from the library, or from my friend's dorm to another dorm.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is the best way to find people who have similar interests as you and easily transition to the college life.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe with NYPD and NYU officers patrolling for safety. The guards are very strict about allowing only NYU students, faculty and admins into the buildings, raising the safety of them. There are also many resources available if any events occur, the wellness center being an excellent example.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The key, for me, to enjoying the courses I take is to research courses and the professors offering the courses ahead of time. Since I have a mixture of big lectures and small lectures, I like to make sure that no matter how big or small my class is I can understand my professor. My smaller classes that usually consist of 15-20 students allow me to build a stronger connection with my professor. My larger classes, such as my 100+ student Math for Econ course and my 400+ student Microeconomics class push me to make a larger effort to visit my professor's office hours.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NYU's Wasserman center is the hub for students looking to find jobs/internships, develop their resumes, and/or attend valuable workshops to develop skills needed for their careers. I have personally attended mock interview workshops to get used to being interviewed for a job or internship, and general pre-med workshops while I was on the pre-med track. Attending pre-med workshops is what actually made me realize that I was no longer interesting in working in the medical field. This being so, I think Wasserman's workshops are great for either enhancing your drive to continue on a set career path or figure out a new career path you feel is better suited for yourself.

NYU also has a careernet website where students can actively search for jobs and/or internships. This website's interface is very efficient since you can narrow your search by industry, compensation type, years of experience required, position type, location, and more.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: NYU strives to do everything in its power to make the experience of its students as great as they would like it to be. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the classes I have taken outside of my major even if they were not the most appealing initially. The professors are extremely knowledgable and passionate about what they do.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: NYU has a huge networking community within New York City and also abroad with its Alumni and many satellite campuses. The professors do all that they can to help you make contacts that will help you find employment in your field.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is someone popular on campus. I don't think anyone would treat a person different based on being Greek or non-Greek.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some res halls are better than others, but overall they're great.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: NYU isn't traditional so greek life is sub-par.

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.
