5 College Junior

Local Area: It's located right near Soho, which is a major shopping area. There are plenty of places to dine at, from fancy sit-down restaurants, to casual fast food places. Furthermore, it is such a diverse neighborhood with people from many different places. That alone adds to the various events that take place on and off of campus. I haven't been around for the summer yet, but this year will be the first time and I'm so excited to be apart of it. The campus already surrounds a well known park which I know will come alive once the weather warms up. It's really difficult to get bored around here because there is just too much to do.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: To be real, I didn't receive anything. I got some loans but nobody wants loans. Also from talking to other students who did get aid, it seems NYU acknowledged that they needed more aid but that they couldn't give it to them. It is a very expensive school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are a lot of different options, but they are kind of all over the place so you end up not even trying everything because it's not worth it.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is a shuttle bus but it doesn't go to all of the dorms that are far from campus.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am in the hospitality major and I've noticed that many of my classmates with the same major are not very nice or friendly which doesn't make sense, hello, hospitality!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There are lots of activities that students can choose to participate in, and there are two athletic facilities with lots of equipment and space.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Most of the buildings have places to sit besides the classrooms and there are computers and printers in some buildings as well. The campus is situated around Washington Square Park which is a nice place to be during the not cold months.

Health & Safety: NYU Public Safety is excellent in helping students. They are available on campus 24 hours a day so there is never a problem getting to and from your dorm to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug safety at NYU is great. There is little peer pressure to engage in drugs. Resident assistants are usually vigilant in attempting to prevent drugs from coming into the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Given the surrounding City, there are a vast variety of nightlife options near NYU. Many places are open throughout the week, making it very easy.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life at NYU is relatively minimal. There are no fraternity houses because of the City, so social life is rarely dictated or related to fraternity events.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is an extremely large number of international students, making NYU's diversity great. NYU is one of the most liberal schools, so there is also a wide variety of diversity regarding sexuality.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The cold in the wintertime can be difficult because the streets are extremely slippery. In the summer, the extreme heat can be tough to handle because some dorms do not have air conditioning

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking in New York City is extremely expensive, and there are large fines for expired passes. The necessity for a car on campus is zero.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: I use it to determine to go to class

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.
