1 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's rare that someone is part of Greek life. It doesn't affect the campus whatsoever, and I never hear anything about any of the frats or sororities. I think the "housing" for them is just one of the floors of one of the dorms.

Athletics: There is absolutely no school spirit or student involvement when it comes to sports. I never hear anything about our sports teams, and that's an infamous part of NYU.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, going to NYU has been a great experience. The professors have all been amazing and have made me passionate about the subjects they teach. The environment is refreshing because everyone is very socially aware, accepting, and ambitious. However, there is a lack of community, especially since we don't have a formal campus or any sports events that bring us together. I'm glad I chose to go to NYU and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

Overall Experience: As a music theatre major, I'm under slightly different circumstances than most students, but being able to say I got my degree from NYU will most likely be very helpful in opening doors for my career.

Campus Housing: I personally don't really like my dorm, but I also don't have a great roommate so that probably impacts my opinion of the dorm. Most people I know love their dorms, though, and I really enjoy my friend's dorms.

Overall Experience: An NYU degree is worth a lot, and it is somewhat of a good value. This is an overpriced education, yes, but you get a great reputation and amazing connections in return.

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.
