2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Personally, I've been documented for drinking in the dorms. You need to be careful and mindful of the amount of noise because a simple noise complaint can turn into documentation and the dumping of $50 worth of vodka down the drain. I think they're a little too strict. I was once in a room and someone was talking about how they chased shots with Red Bull and the RAs on duty heard her through the wall and knocked on the door for "suspicious language."

Health & Safety: I know someone who's been sexually assaulted this year and so far no consequence has been taken against the attacker.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I've had a mix of good and okay teachers. You just have to make the most of it and utilize office hours.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a Sternie, the opportunities presented to me just by graduating from Stern are almost endless. As far as other schools, employment is also very attainable. The Wasserman Center is very helpful.

Campus Housing: I currently live in Hayden Hall which is a freshman specific dorm, located on Washington Square Park where most of the academic buildings are. It's a brand new refurbished building, so everything inside of it is very nice and clean. I've been inside other residence halls and none of them are as great as Hayden, but each has their own perks. Freshman wise, you have the choices of Rubin, Brittany, Hayden, University, Weinstein, Founders, Third North, or Goddard (I think I got them all). Rubin doesn't have AC, so it's pretty brutal in the first couple of months, but it's on 5th Ave. It also doesn't have a dining hall. Brittany is the newest after Hayden but doesn't have a dining hall. Hayden is brand new and has a dining hall as well as a small convenience store. University is on Union Square and also houses upperclassmen so it's not just freshmen, but also has dining options like Burger Studio and Dunkin Donuts. UHall is also apartment style. Weinstein is located on WSP and has Downstein, which is buffet style, Upstein, where you get one meal per swipe, like Chick-fil-a or Quizno's, and Sidestein, which is a convenience store. Founders and 3N are both apartment style, but only 3N has a dining hall. Goddard is an application only res. hall and has Faye's next to it which houses our Starbucks.

Athletics: As a varsity athlete, I wish there was more support on campus. There are some students that don't even know we have sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NYU is a great experience so far. Welcome Week helped me meet new friends and my residence hall is great. NYU is a great opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone and explore the city and all it has to offer.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: NYC is the best place in the world. If you're not having fun, you're not trying to.

Drug Safety: Smells like weed everywhere around WSP, but if you don't want to drink or do drugs, there's not really anyone putting pressure on you other than yourself.

Health & Safety: During the day I always feel safe, at night you shouldn't walk alone to be safe.

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.
