3 College Freshman

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.

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

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

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have never lived in the NYU student housing in New York. I was abroad my freshman year, and since then I have lived off campus because it is cheaper and more private

Athletics: No one really goes to Athletic events unless you participate in them, but the gym facilities are great.

Campus Housing: RA's can be annoying, but they have certain rules they must follow. If you're smart and don't open the door until all bottles & paraphernalia is hidden, then you're fine. But getting written up isn't even a big deal, generally. I lived in Hayden Hall- which is about to get renovated- I met some of my best friends on my floor and had some great times in my dorm.

Athletics: The gyms are the only good things. Students joke about how unimportant sports are though, and I don't know anyone who goes to events

Scholarships: Financial aid can be a hit or a miss. Personally, because of my parents income I don't receive much at all, so I am filling out this survey for a scholarship.

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.
