4 College Freshman

Administration: Hard to be strict when you don't have an actual campus

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: You need to harass them to receive aid pretty much

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Best dorms are the furthest from "campus"

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Alot of people do and I think they like it! I have a friend who just got an apartment and its great!

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have lots of friends who are big partiers and they always seem to be out having fun. Thats not my thing but I know that its a great place to be if you like that kinda stuff.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was fortunate to get a nice scholarship but the school is very expenisve and doesnt cover all of it. The amount that I still have to pay is pretty substantial and Im on the lookout for more scholarships.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in a dorm called Third North and it was suite style dorms. I thought it was a great community to live in. The floors are not made up of many rooms so you get close with the other people who live on your floor which is really nice.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Very good academics!!!! Great education!

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Its an engineering school, what do you expect.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: not that hard to find affordable off campus housing, especially after you realize hoe much of a rip off on campus housing is. alphabet city has tons of nice affordable places.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is fine for the most part. Not too strict aside from some RA's or dorm advisors.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Absolutely atrocious. Words can't begin to describe the atrocity.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus dining ranges okay to mediocre. Palladium is great. Peet's is great but long lines always.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I dont really know too much about them.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Your gonna be broker than broke.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food all around is too fatty - Freshmen 15

3 College Freshman

Administration: I have not really had any interaction.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didnt have to pay the first year, but this year, my aid went down and tuition went up the roof.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You wouldn't think it, but NYU has an insane party life. I go out Thursday, Friday Saturday but even during the week there is something to do. For a school that prides itself on academics, it came as a surprise as to how hard people party here.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's New York City- you can find anything you want, at any time, and within walking distance.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It gets less strict as you move out of freshmen year housing. I've never really had a housing problem.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: You can't go wrong with an NYU dining hall. There are plenty of options and the food is MUCH better than the average university's.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: NYU has decent housing. As a freshman, the dorms are located closer to campus, but as you travel up the ladder the dorms become further and further away.

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.
