Scholarships: Expensive tuition, but not much of financial aid or scholarships.

If you try hard, school might grant you financial aid or scholarships but highly unlikely.

Greek Life: If you admire greek life, then don't come to NYU.

Fraternity and sorority exist, but not a big deal here.

Drug Safety: Is there any place in the States where drug and alcohol don't exist?

In New York City, however, it's kind of easier to have an access to drug or alcohol.

It is not like having a big party at frat house or something. You just gather up with your friends, go to a bar or club and drink. That's it.

Athletics: Gyms are pretty good.

HOWEVER,

School spirit? fan support? team performance?

Nope. don't exist.

Academics: I won't say academics is the best at NYU. However, it is great.

Stern is recognized as one of top business schools. There are many notable Tisch alumni who are working in film industry, comedies, photography and so on. There are also many other schools and colleges within NYU that provide various options. It won't be a problem to find classes that you want to take and actually learn. It just depends how you use your circumstance.

There are many internship and job opportunities in the city. No problem with that!

Technology: There are some computer labs in Bobst. Everything's fine.

However, you'll need a laptop.

You'll have to write a lot of essays in MAP courses and you don't want to go all the way to Bobst to write your essays.

Diversity: There are people from all over the world, and while NYU itself is seen as a very liberal school, there are surprisingly many people with differing political and religious beliefs.

Diversity: All kinds of people and whole lot of international students which is great!

You get to know a lot about other cultures.

Nothing to worry about. Just don't be shy and step forward. Everybody's going to welcome you.

Academics: NYU provides the best opportunities for learning inside and outside of the classroom. For my major, Global Liberal Studies, NYU has allowed for me to travel abroad in many capacities and really learn from a global viewpoint that will benefit my future careers.

Administration: NYU doesn't have a "CAMPUS".

Strictness? nah. There are things that you shouldn't do at dorms though.

It depends but RAs are flexible. No worries.

Athletics: No one cares about sports. The fitness centers and stuff are pretty good, definitely not adequate for the size of the school, but I never have to fight for a treadmill at Palladium. There are classes and things you can pay for, but fitness and athletics is not a major priority here.

Party Scene: If you are over 21 or have a fake ID, then nightlife is great! You can go to any bar or club. There are a few 18+ clubs, but I haven't been to any yet. That's the only problem is age. It also depends on what program you're in. Some programs have parties within their program and some don't. Frats have parties, but I heard even girls have to pay.

Administration: As long as there are no complaints about your behavior or you just don't let your RA see you doing stuff you can do it. I mean, since there's no campus, you're under city laws and city enforcement most of the time. As long as you're not smoking or drinking or being disorderly in academic buildings, and you don't do enough to bring on complaints from other residents or get noticed by your RA you can do what you want.

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.
