3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have little interaction with the athletic program or athletes in it.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not really a big part of the social scene - the majority of people do not join. Because there are so few frats and sororities, their parties are kind of rare, or at least not widely publicized. They're also scattered all over the city.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is just really expensive to live in Manhattan. Yes, there are subway stops almost everywhere, but the annoying thing is that you'll have to look really hard to find a reasonably priced apartment, and you'll have to sign a one year contract two weeks before you move in.

Off-Campus Dining: Literally everything you could ever want.

Overall Experience: NYU is in one of the best areas of Manhattan. The location itself is what draws incredible faculty from around the world and from every field there is. While there are many schools with better rankings, what makes NYU stand out is the amount of genuine work experience it offers every student simply because of its location.

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.
