Campus Quality: Life on campus is fun, but you have all of NYC at your disposal which is one of the biggest things NYU has to offer. MOMA, the Metropolitan Museum, The New Museum are all within twenty minutes. The parks. The nightlife.

Off-Campus Housing: Living in NY is definitely a plus. The neighborhoods near the main NYU campus are very nice and obviously, as per the average renting prices in NYC, are very high. However students can usually find ways to lower these costs and live near enough that living off-campus makes pragmatic sense.

Academics: The academics at NYU, and from personal experience in the Global Liberal Studies program are amazing. The professors are all knowledgeable and are consistently publishing important scholarly work in the fields that they teach, which is an amazing opportunity to be on the forefront of academic work.

3 College Junior

Athletics: If you are into sports and athletics it is fairly easy to get involved, but many students participate in sports outside of campus-run organizations.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Now that I have figured out my academic goals and path it has been fantastic. My courses are all geared towards the type of academic studying which I love and pursue on my own time as well, which makes scholastic work pleasurable and fulfilling. My professors are incredible, and the resources I am allowed to use are amazing.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The people involved in Greek Life are involved in their own social circles and I, along with peers who I associate with, do not have much interaction with the people involved in Greek Life.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: Haha there's no "real" Greek life at NYU (THANK GOD)

4 College Senior

Academics: The faculty is very very passionate; be prepare for lots and lots of reading!

4 College Senior

Academics: NYU faculty is amazing, all my professors so far have been quite amazing.

3 College Senior

Diversity: NYU is definitely not a reflection of NYC. NYU is mostly composed of white students even though there is a certain diversity on campus, it is mostly white.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: It's just okay! There are many dining halls but they all basically have the same thing.

4 College Senior

Majors: You fill out the common application along with the NYU supplement. MCC is quite a popular major and for that reason it is becoming more a more selective. I believe everything in your application is important not just the GPA.

4 College Senior

Majors: I love my major! My only concern is that it is mostly theoretical, instead of hands-on learning.

5 College Junior

Administration: I like the strict-ness of campus so that people don't go crazy

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.

1 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't started my program yet but I am excited.

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.
