2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Rich white people in clothes that cost way too much money who have no manners and no respect for authority.

Academics: Not worth the 50000 a year education #justsaying.

Academics: Again, not the greatest in this category either.The education is sub par for what you are paying big classes

Scholarships: I wish more was available for grad students! Every one I talked to in financial aid is friendly though and willing to help.

Diversity: Rich white people

Rich international students

An occasional minority student thrown in...what 2% African American? Unacceptable for a schoool in such a diverse place as new york

Local Area: It's a great area! Again, cost is an issue for housing, some museams, etc. It's nice that certain museams (i.e. MoMA are free with the NYU ID)/

Off-Campus Dining: The only issue is cost...it's very pricey. I get it that it's NYC, but $11 for a burrito from Chipotle is ridiculous. Love all the vegan options though!

Administration: Abundance of alcohol and drugs

Academics: NYU has a lot of extra-curricular opportunities, but it is really the responsibility of students to get involved.

Local Area: NYC is not called the best city in the world for no reason, and I can totally imagine living here after I graduate.

Greek Life: Greek life has a presence, but at the same time if you are not involved in it, you can still have a social life.

Majors: I am in an honors major, so that can be stressful at times, but overall everything is manageable. NYU has many opportunities, but it is the responsibility of students to take advantage of them.

Majors: In general, internships are really what you make of them. NYU does an amazing job of offering different internships to students.

Diversity: In terms of diversity on campus opinions vary. I personally think that things could be a lot worse. However although NYU is very diverse, people tend to interact more with their race than intermingle.

Scholarships: It is really hard to receive the financial aid you need at NYU. It is a very challenging process because different people give you different answers, and it really depends who you are working with.

Campus Quality: There are a lot of places to hangout on campus, but that being said I wouldn't say that there is one main hangout place. NYU is huge, so it's your responsibility to figure out your social life.

Party Scene: Unless you are 21, it is really hard to get into clubs. The bars that are accessible are fun.

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.
