Administration: For the important stuff like plagiarism, they are very strict. But for other stuff I'd say it's like any other college.

Weather: New York's weather can really suck sometimes, but when it's great, it's REALLY great. The weathers can get pretty brutal, this past winter especially. It's snowed at least two times a week every week for the past month and a half and temperatures have rarely gotten above 25. However, New York's fall and spring is absolutely breathtaking and you'll remember why you fell in love with the city in the first place.

Transportation: Getting to the airport on a college budget can really be a hassle. Unless you're willing to fork over 50-80 dollars for a cab (not including tip), then you'll have to take several modes of transportation to even get there, and dragging luggage around New York City and up and down stairs is one of the worst parts about living in the city.

Health & Safety: Campus Police are stationed at the entrance to every NYU building and they follow strict procedures when it comes to allowing any guests into the buildings. This can be annoying at times, but in the end it helps you feel safe in New York. And if you were out and anything were to ever happen, you can always go into any NYU building.

Campus Housing: I'm in a low-cost triple, so it's small. Great variety in rooms as the dorm is a fairly old building originally built as a hotel.

Off-Campus Housing: It's NYC so rents are pretty high. You get what you pay for, in terms of the NYC market.

Campus Housing: Hayden is the best option because it is very close to classes, both uptown and downtown, and to the subway stops. For a spacious apartment in New York City, it is a great value.

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.
