3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Its NY so it varies

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Its great with official NYU buildings, but we live in the city (no campus) so the relative security varies with the region

Scholarships: You have to work for it, keep calling financial aid and working hard to get more aid than is originally given (which is usually not enough). But if you put in the effort, you can generally get what you need.

Scholarships: If you're lucky enough to get a scholarship it makes the process easier, but it's still a hassle getting the required money.

Administration: Much more lenient as a grad student so can't speak to the undergrad experience.

Party Scene: Beer blasts every Thursday for grad students! There is literally something to do every night, this is the best city for going out. And they don't close until 4am :)

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Since NYU is in the city, it is much harder to police and provide safety for students as there is no one defined campus.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Toooo much to do. Neighborhoods are nice, but it feels that locals get annoyed with students.

4 College Senior

Majors: I enjoyed interviewing for the MBA because NYU Stern is such a well-rounded program and takes all backgrounds into account. I was interviewed by an alumni in the industry which I had the most interest, so they could relate to my goals right away. That makes it easy to connect.

Majors: I love the access to companies in NYC. Also there are such eclectic individuals at NYU that we are all coming from different professions and pursuing a wide variety of careers also. Very collaborative community.

5 College Junior

Majors: I'm at the Gallatin School, which gives you a lot of freedom in creating your own concentration. It lets you explore whatever you like, really, as long as you get the correct academic permissions, and are able to somehow justify it.

Off-Campus Housing: New York City means a lot of expense for not a lot of convenience.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There have been night safety incidents, but usually not involving students. Still, being in a city makes you nervous, and it's hard to tell whether campus is invested in assault issues.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The price of housing is mostly due to the location; apartments would definitely be better in terms of space and your control over the rooms, but rent and commute are different issues.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid is a tricky situation here, but if you really persist and keep all your information well filed, things should go smoothly.

Local Area: New York City — what more could you ask for? There's something going on no matter where you look, you don't have to go far.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Best with a group of friends, but really depends on what your preferences are - clubbing, apartment parties, rooftops, etc. You can find them all, but making the connections to get there can be tricky.

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.
