3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is probably the easiest way to make sure that you live at least fairly close to your classes. The cost for the dorms varies, but expect to pay A LOT either way, you're living in New York City after all.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is essentially invisible in campus life. You don't really hear about them, it's all pretty lowkey.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There is no athletic scene. We don't have a football team or stadium, and other sports like basketball, swimming, and soccer are essentially ignored by almost everyone. All kinds of intramurals exist, they're just not super popular. If this doesn't say anything about sports at NYU then I don't know what will: our best sports team is the Quidditch team.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In terms of academics, NYU is exceptionally strong. The classes and professors are both incredibly interesting and challenging to exactly the right degree. The biggest drawback is also the biggest advantage: being in the heart of New York City. This obviously offers you all kinds of incredible opportunity, but it's also challenging to live in a place that's so bustling, intense, and competition-driven.

Health & Safety: I haven't had any problems

3 College Junior

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: it good but expensive, rooms are too small

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I would not know, not involved at all

4 College Freshman

Athletics: nice sport facilities, I am not too much into sports so I am not very involved

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is amazing! I love it, there are still some programs that they are missing, like having such a great Jazz performance program, they do not have Jazz voice performance

2 College Junior

Athletics: Personally, I have not visited the two gyms NYU too much. This is why I think I do not have the right to say things about the facilities. But on the other hand, I know that fan support/school spirit is almost nonexistent. I think because NYU is located in the city, there is not much of a campus to gather and rile up a crowd of supporters. Also, except for the athletes themselves, no one really seems to know what sport events are happening, let alone attending. However, I do not believe this is a bad thing, because everyone is proud of their academic achievements. Even if we do not know much about sport activities, we do know that we have bragging rights for our intelligence!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My first two years at NYU has been a struggle, because I was having a hard time keeping up with the Pre-Medicine program and then switched to Nursing. This transition tried to emotionally drain me, but I made it through due to my friends. Before I moved into my dorm in freshman year, I heard about a Korean Catholic club, and I made it a priority to join it ASAP. Ever since then, all the members of the club have become like family to me and we would constantly (and randomly) call each other out to hang out and even go to church together. After I switched to Nursing and started commuting in my sophomore year, I lost connection with the friends I made in the Pre-Med courses, but I was hardly sad about it because I still had my Korean Catholic friends. This community has always been there for me in my times of need and struggle, and it gives me great joy to attend every weekly meeting/hangout. Thus, I am very grateful for a club in which my heritage and religious interests can be met and recognized; I know that not a lot of other colleges have this sort of group. I hope that Korean Catholics United can always be around for future students and also be as close as we are.

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.
