4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms at NYU are really cool, mostly old buildings, though many are in a renovation process right now, which makes them incredibly nice and much more spacious. Most classes take a while to walk to, but it's nice, because New York City is amazing, and the walk is enjoyable, especially when the weather is nice. All dorms have private bathrooms and after freshman year, all have kitchens (freshman year only two dorm buildings have kitchen options). The social atmosphere is really special considering the location of the school, and either works for you or it doesn't. It's very different from other universities, but the opportunity to live in the city and make a life there is unbeatable. While NYU is incredibly expensive, it's truly an investment in your future.

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.
