Scholarships: The worst part about NYU is the financial aid. If you do get what you need, which is a miracle, you probably won't be treated well by the financial aid office.

Academics: NYU has the best professors who challenge students.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Classes are diverse and interesting. If there's something you wan tto study, you can definitely take a class on it at NYU.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You can do whatever you want or don't want to do at NYU. Since it's in the middle of a city, alcohol and drugs are readily available but it's easy to have fun without being a part of that scene.

Parking: It makes no sense to drive to NYU because it's in Manhattan so parking is horrible.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is basically no Greek life at NYU and it is viewed as being pretty silly.

College Sophomore

Campus Food: I haven't had the chance to eat at the dining halls because I have been studying abroad and self catered.

Overall Experience: It's an amazing school set in the middle on New York City. If you are an extremely independent person, love city living and can afford the extremely expensive tuition it is the best decision you can make.

Drug Safety: All I know is at any time of the night you can call NYU Public Safety and they will come and get you, quickly, and drive you anywhere.

Weather: Very finnicky. Lots of freak snowfalls/gorgeous, warm days. Very windy, also. The warmest days can get chilly just because the wind is that bad.

Administration: It's not difficult to get away with things in your dorms (not that people don't ever get caught and written up), and the visitation policy is easy going enough.

Off-Campus Dining: It's New York. Anything and everything you want/need is within walking distance.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's New York City. Walk out of your door and within a five block radius you'll be around people outside having a good time. It can be tough if you're not 21 and have no fake, but there are ways to work around that, and it's great regardless.

Local Area: New York is an exciting place to live. I love it here. That said, some parts of the city are more appealing to live in (Chelsea, The Village, Tribeca) than others (Inwood)

Technology: There are a number of places for students to use computers (both Mac and PC). Whether a computer is necessary in class depends on your professor. I've had some who required or strongly encouraged bringing computers and others who forbade them

Guys & Girls: People at NYU tend to be stylish

Scholarships: Getting the money is not hard, but they do not cover all your expenses (most of the time). However, I had not seen indication that I would receive more money than I did, unlike UChicago who promised money but offered a plan that would leave me $60,000 in debt for my undergraduate degree

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.
