3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life isn't big but it exists and the people in it seem to like it.

2 College Freshman

Academics: Registration is not always fun on Albert. Most professors are nice though

4 College Freshman

Academics: The Hospitality program at NYU is top notch. We get great training in the classroom and so many opportunities to visit local hotels, network with potential employers, intern, and listen to lectures by various important people in the industry.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-Campus housing is very expensive and the affordable ones are not very good quality or are in an unsafe environment. The school doesn't really help at all in finding you off-campus housing.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The health center is open often and even though appointments fill up, you can go to the walk-in and they send you back to see kind and helpful doctors anyway.

2 College Freshman

Technology: Printers are not located in many places and you easily run out of printing money. The wifi is also very spotty and goes in and out.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: The local atmosphere here is great, there are many attractions and for both native New Yorkers and tourists that you can take advantage of and there is always something to do. The only sports you'll find though are the few NYU teams otherwise only the pros.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's not much better Off-Campus dining than what is found at NYU. With New York City as your off-capus dining, there is no type of food you can't find and many places are open late or all night. The only downside is that as with everything else, the cost of food in New York City is pretty expensive.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus system doesn't have many stops and is always full. There isn't much need though with most dorms only being a 10-15 minute walk with the exception of a few. You could also take the subway for cheap from the very far away dorms.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The cold weather makes walking not the most fun

4 College Junior

Academics: NYU has one of the best nursing schools in the nation. There is a myriad of clinical opportunities that could potentially lead to job opportunities and kind professors willing to help. The courseload for nursing is hard but it pays off in the end!

4 College Junior

Academics: I'm a transfer but all the professors I've had sincerely want to help me learn the skills to succeed. I've had no problem with registration (so far) and classes have been tedious but easy. People enjoy studying at Bobst and the academic resource center.

2 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys here are gay. That being said, it's also really hard to meet new guys because guys out-and-about New York tend to be listening to music on their headphones and what not. The best advice would be to make friends with girls who know invite you to THEIR parties/get-togethers with guys.

Technology: The wireless is terrible here. Bobst has one of the largest and most expansive collection of computer labs I've ever seen but every lab always seems to be full when I need it the most. It's 10 cents per page for printing and some places require students bring their own paper as well but there are a few gems on campus that have completely free printing and paper.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I'm in Lafayette (20-25 mins away from WSP) and I actually like it. It's incredibly spacious even in my low-cost triple suite and I've had a lot of freedom to decorate my space. My RAs are nice, friendly, and surprisingly busy most of the time (like most RAs). My low-cost triple is one of the cheapest options and it's a good price for the place I'm at. The only problem is that living with two roommates and two suitemates is a bit difficult sometimes and there is a huge gap in the wall near the ceiling in my room. The guards are nice and I enjoy talking to them on slow days.

Athletics: There are two gyms that students have free access to: Coles and Palladium. Both are nice in their own way. I would like to say mainly students go workout at Palladium simply because it's in the dorm and around all the Union Square dorms while community members tend to workout at Coles. I occasionally see flyers and facebook notices about sporting events, but other than that, I rarely know about the athletic scene here.

Majors: Finding an internship at NYU is unbelievably easy since you have the luxury of going to class and going to the office in the same day.

Diversity: NYU's strong points definitely include diversity as it attracts students from all over the world from every different type of background.

Campus Housing: The on campus housing at NYU is what you'd typically expect from a school in the heart of one of the most crowded cities in the world.

Campus Food: There are lots of options - kosher, vegan, vegetarian - but the quality is not the best.

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.
