3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's Ok but I'm disappointed. I expected more from NYU Steinhardt.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Good facilities but too many people at the gym all the time

3 College Senior

Administration: It is OK but not great

3 College Senior

Scholarships: It's OK but the scholarships that Steinhardt offer are quite low

2 College Senior

Campus Food: The quality of food is pretty bad

Overall Experience: Went into it excited, hated it by the end of the first semester, but loved it again by the end of the first year, and stayed that way through graduation for the most part. There are huge improvements that could be made, mostly on the administrative policy side, but I enjoyed my time.

Overall Experience: You can study an amazing range of things- it's really too bad that it's too expensive to stay for a decade or two taking different classes.

Overall Experience: Everything you want is here, as long as you put the effort into going to look for it. This school is best for independent-minded individuals who love the city life and handle stress well.

Greek Life: NYU also really isn't big on Greek life. The only time you see/hear about them is the gay frat's on campus- events.

Athletics: NYU isn't really big on athletics, and what is out there isn't advertised well or emphasized at all really. Very little participation, even fewer people actually go as spectators.

Off-Campus Housing: If you can afford it and/or don't mind commuting from Queens or Brooklyn, it's great. If you're on a budget or want to be right near classes, staying on campus is better in pretty much every way.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: It's NYC. If you can't find the cuisine you want here, it doesn't exist. Can get pricey depending on what you're looking for, but there's always $1 falafel.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: There are a lot of rules that are enforced but not overly so. Staff are generally very friendly and helpful.

5 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: It's NYC- if you're not having fun, it's your own fault.

Campus Food: University Hall is the best of the dining halls, but not too many people remember to go there. Palladium brunch is always worth it. Rubin is terrible. Kimmel's food is pretty good, but the lines are crazy.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are always apartments available around the city

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: New York Citys resteraunts are some of the best in the world.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Its hard for other NYU students who don't live in the dorm, it makes things difficult.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: In NYC theres always something to do, there are plenty of great late night restaurants and shows

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: NYU is known to be stingy about its scholarships for a reason. Its one of the most expensive schools in the country.

4 College Freshman

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.
