NYU is really good when it comes to having a lot of diversity and something for everyone, literally!! However, I did not really like how there is not much of a campus life in relation to hang out spots and so.

I go to Tandon School of Engineering, which is the Brooklyn campus. The work load is heavy, but living in Brooklyn is great and there's always stuff to do. Being 20 minutes away from Greenwich Village, I also spend a lot of time on the main campus. My favorite part about NYU is the diversity. My friends are from all over the world and it's cool hearing many languages in the dorms and academic buildings. NYU is a great school if you are social and put yourself out there.
