4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm a transfer but all the professors I've had sincerely want to help me learn the skills to succeed. I've had no problem with registration (so far) and classes have been tedious but easy. People enjoy studying at Bobst and the academic resource center.

Academics: NYU has one of the best nursing schools in the nation. There is a myriad of clinical opportunities that could potentially lead to job opportunities and kind professors willing to help. The courseload for nursing is hard but it pays off in the end!

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys here are gay. That being said, it's also really hard to meet new guys because guys out-and-about New York tend to be listening to music on their headphones and what not. The best advice would be to make friends with girls who know invite you to THEIR parties/get-togethers with guys.

Technology: The wireless is terrible here. Bobst has one of the largest and most expansive collection of computer labs I've ever seen but every lab always seems to be full when I need it the most. It's 10 cents per page for printing and some places require students bring their own paper as well but there are a few gems on campus that have completely free printing and paper.

Campus Housing: I'm in Lafayette (20-25 mins away from WSP) and I actually like it. It's incredibly spacious even in my low-cost triple suite and I've had a lot of freedom to decorate my space. My RAs are nice, friendly, and surprisingly busy most of the time (like most RAs). My low-cost triple is one of the cheapest options and it's a good price for the place I'm at. The only problem is that living with two roommates and two suitemates is a bit difficult sometimes and there is a huge gap in the wall near the ceiling in my room. The guards are nice and I enjoy talking to them on slow days.

Athletics: There are two gyms that students have free access to: Coles and Palladium. Both are nice in their own way. I would like to say mainly students go workout at Palladium simply because it's in the dorm and around all the Union Square dorms while community members tend to workout at Coles. I occasionally see flyers and facebook notices about sporting events, but other than that, I rarely know about the athletic scene here.

Campus Housing: The on campus housing at NYU is what you'd typically expect from a school in the heart of one of the most crowded cities in the world.

Diversity: There is tons of diversity at NYU. A fifth of the student population is international.

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of options for off-campus dining because we're in New York City. There is always something open no matter what time of the day, in fact, I know of multiple quality restaurants that are open 24-7.

Scholarships: I've heard a lot of stories about students not receiving enough financial aid in order to attend NYU. There's also a lot of debate surrounding the question of where our tuition money actually goes.

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.
