Majors: I'm in Tisch for film and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else studying this. The diversity of academics is ridiculous, to the point where you can create your own majors

Party Scene: I focused on school and did not plan to have a party life on campus but there are lots of great options.

Local Area: I would like to say something about the Washington Square Park. There are many artists there performing day and night, especially pianist and singers. Sometimes, people can see free film or take free lunch box, which are sponsored by business companies. About two weeks ago, our president, Mr. Sexton accepted the ice bucket challenge and I saw the whole event, which was so exciting. It was the first time that I could see the president closely.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: All kinds of restaurants are available near the main campus-Washington Square. I always go to the Subway south to the Kimmel Center, the vegetables there are very fresh. Some Chinese restaurants nearby is cheap, about 10 dollars a meal per person. Almost all the restaurants nearby have student discount. I would like to recommend a ramen house, which name is Zen 6 in the East Village. It takes about 15 minutes to go there by walking from the Washington Square. The lunch special there is very delicious!!!

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.
