5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: It's New York, there's everything you could possible want, and plenty of it is available for delivery and late at night.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Cold in Winter. Hot in summer. Spring and Fall can get some absolutely perfect days.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: All financial Aid is done through FASFA so as long as you fill it out they will award as needed. Individual schools are great at communicating scholarship options

Transportation: Public transportation is extremely reliable for the most part, but definitely pricey. Cabs are cheap and easy to locate when needed.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Awesome options at affordable prices especially for NYC. Lots of places off-campus offer student discounts as well

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It was extremely cold all year long. It was only warm around the first few weeks of school and around the last week before it got out for the summer.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: An incredible and expansive library. Athletic centers are incredible as well, and large, thankfully. Campus events occur just about everyday and are a great way for interacting and meeting people.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A great community of people and staff. Dorms vary in size across different dorms and floors; some are much too small. The buildings are well kept and it's convenient that the freshman dorms have cafeterias. The security guards could stand to be a little less strict/menacing.

Technology: Most students have their own laptops, Wifi is available to all, however printing costs money.

5 College Freshman

Academics: NYU is a prestigious college due to its excellent academics.

College Freshman

Parking: NYU is a city school therefore parking is not crucial. However they do have a parking garage available to students.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you are commuting, the subway is easy as well as different trains through Grand Central. Its pretty cheap and easy to navigate especially with apps. Get used to walking in New York. Cabs are also always available.

Local Area: New York is one of the biggest cities in the world. Since NYU doesn't have a defined campus you are surrounded by the best shopping, restaurants, and everything else is within a train ride away.

Diversity: NYU is very diverse, there are people from many different countries at this university and it prides itself on being a global campus. The LGBT community here is prominent and i don't think anyone ever feels ostracized.

Party Scene: Though being under 21 could very well limit nightlife opportunities in the city, there are actually quite a few 18+ parties, and if you're looking for them, you will find them. There are also quite often frat parties and good 'ole chill areas that NYU students love to frequent nights. NYU itself also offers many night events, especially during the spring semester, when there are tons of formals and dances to go to.

Off-Campus Dining: Manhattan is probably one of the best places to go to get ANY kind of food you want. There is an incredible variety of ethnic cuisine to choose from, and there are honestly so many restaurants in the city -- you can find five different restaurants on the same block! Many people would complain that city dining is very expensive, but I have found several places that have reasonable prices, and Chinatown is always an option for unbelievably cheap food. My go-to's in Manhattan are Vapiano's, Da Andrea, and of-course NY's notorious 99-cent pizza!

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Needless to say, going to school in NYC offers countless opportunities and possibilities whether you're on or off-campus. There are always plenty of people milling about, there are many restaurants and stores to frequent, and with the efficient subway, nothing is out of reach. Great places like the Empire State, Battery Park, Ground Zero and the like are just a few of the numerous places to go. The only reason NYU doesn't get an A+++ is because certain facilities like stables, fields for various sports, and stadiums are not exactly within Manhattan, so travel to such places does take time. But overall, NYU is awesome!

College Senior

Campus Food: I am a transfer student and do not have a meal plan.

Parking: It's NYC...why would you even try to park on campus? It is of course very difficult.

4 College Senior

Academics: Academics are the central focus of this school and everything seems very well organized. The professors will challenge you but in a good way. Registration is very simple.

4 College Senior

Academics: Course load is challenging but the students are what make the difference. Everyone seems to be not only intelligent but motivated. It's been an excellent experience so far.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: Can be slow to log on at first, and it can be hard to find a free computer during busy hours. Wi-fi speed is decent though.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It can be hard in the winter when there is snow, slush, and ice. Classes can be ten blocks apart depending on the subject.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: At Stern, everyone is the top of their class, which makes it competitive, but also brings out the best in yourself.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are countless restaurants and food courts around campus. One only has to walk out of the building to find somewhere decent.

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.
