Greek Life: It's not a big part of campus but if you want to join one you can and there are also more academic and community service based frats.

Athletics: Sports aren't a big factor at NYU. You don't hear very much about the varsity teams or intramurals but the gyms are nice for people looking to workout.

Overall Experience: The location of the NYU makes it great because it's not just about learning in the classroom but also learning in the real world by going out and exploring what the city has to offer.

Health & Safety: This school takes health and safety very seriously. If there is an issue on or off campus that may impact the students, they send text alerts and e-mails. They also notify the parents.

Campus Housing: most of the dorms are within close proximity to campus and that's great. It's wonderful running into people from other schools as well as classmates from previous semester while walking throughout the campus.

Greek Life: There is not much emphasis placed on Greek life at NYU - too much to do in this city already.

Athletics: I attend an occasional basketball game. I do use the facilities for exercise at times.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: For my particular major, NYU was the best place to study. Their study abroad program is absolutely the best. This is my second semester at NYU Florence and I love it. The Italian culture is much different than New York and I have had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe for a few Euros. NYU is a place where diversity is real. I have developed a more global perspective of life having met and studied with people from cultures from all over the world.

Overall Experience: The professors really care. A class size of more than 30 is rare, and it shows up in the drive of the professors to push their students to excel.

Drug Safety: Living in NYC offers students a lot of freedom. Many NYU students take advantage of it.

Health & Safety: I think that NYU does as much as it can to keep students safe, but because we are immersed in the city, there is only so much the school can do. Once we leave an NYU building, we are walking the streets with everyday people.

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.
