Overall Experience: I have the chance to explore all my interests.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: While some of the professors are torturously boring, provide outdated materials, and hold absurdly long lectures, the observation and clinical affiliation opportunities are great. Some professors are engaging and up-to-date, and everyone is approachable and cares about students, and there are opportunities to study abroad and choose affiliation sites! NYU DPT is perfect for you if you're willing to learn some on your own, but hope for excellent clinical experience. Great if you've already worked in PT as an aid or personal trainer.

2 College Junior

Athletics: There are 3 gyms, I believe, but the only one near the physical therapy dept or Langone is Palladium--it's on E 14th st, and it's far too small for the number of students who need to use it. It's also poorly organized and has some odd policies. Most of my classmates (including myself) have joined other gyms, like NYSC or crunch.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NYU is an amazing school because you not only learn in the classroom but you learn from the city itself. There are wide and endless range of classes to take from intro to drawing to queer history. The professors are all helpful in trying to help you succeed in the future.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: lots of options but its super expensive, but its still better than finding a place on your own. The rooms are totally random some are huge and spacious some are so small. Really depends, and they are all pretty far from campus, but the buses come pretty often.

Greek Life: It is there, and you can join if you really want to but most people don't its not really a big deal.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: NYU is so amazing, they have such amazing opportunities both within and outside of your major. Also, the global influence is amazing you could study anywhere in the world if you wanted to (literally every continent).

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Before I even chose to go to NYU, people were always saying things about it. How if I went there, I wouldn't have to struggle for a job. It has lots of opportunities for jobs as well as the value of the degree.

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.
