Campus Quality: Since Brooklyn College is a commuter college, campus life is not so great. There is a huge library though with many study rooms, tables, and desks so that students can study for exams. The library has computers that students can use and they also have laptops that they lat students borrow for the day. There is a student center, but unless you are part of a club or need to go to a specific office there, you probably will not go into that building often.

Local Area: The local area is great. There are many restaurants, shops, and grocery stores near campus. There is a train a block away from the campus so that students can commute between their home and the campus. Manhattan is only a train ride away, so the nightlife is great too.

Campus Quality: NYU has a lot of great opportunities and resources for students to take advantage of - academic or otherwise.

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.

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

Guys & Girls: I refuse to answer this question because picking a school off of what the "guys and girls" look like is silly.

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.
