3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing process is very easy. For regular dorms, rules can be a little too strict. Often get told to quiet down even when not being very loud at all. Upperclassman housing is much smaller and much nicer and do not have to worry about as many rules or RA's visiting rooms. Can be difficult to get in to because they are smaller, but definitely worth it.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid process is pretty easy, but the school has a cap on the scholarships they give to students from the school. I qualified for many, but do not receive some because of the cap, which is frustrating to me. However, advisors are very personable and try to work with students and help them to be able to afford school.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life! It is a small, Christian college and does not have frats or sororities.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There is a lot to do in the area! If you are into nightlife, there are many bars downtown. There is also a huge four story mall just down the road from the college. There are also many artsy places and museums. There are also local parks and hiking opportunities and there are always beautiful views, as it is right on the Hudson River.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Because it is a small college, there is not emergency alert buttons or anything around campus. There are often security guards seen around and the local police do patrol the college. It is an open campus, so students should be conscientious about this. Although I always feel safe on campus and do not know about these issues, it is always best for students to practice safety measures when on campus!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off-campus, but am considering it for the following. One problem that I have found in my search is that it is hard to find an apartment with utilities included and nearly impossible to find one that is furnished. As someone who does not live near my school, it makes this difficult for me because it would increase costs. However, for some this may not be a problem. Most off-campus housing is right down town and would be very easy to get to school, with or without a car.

4 College Junior

Majors: The Education depart is like a family. The professors and heads of the department really care about their students and work to provide the best learning environment possible. Because it's a small school, the professors truly know and care about their students and strive to help students achieve their goals and go above and beyond the degree requirements.

3 College Junior

Academics: The workload is reasonable and relevant to the field. It is a small school, so most professors really care and connect to their students and strive to help each student learn and grow. The professors and heads of the department are also really helpful in placing students in field work and student teaching. Other schools require field hours and student teacher, but do not help the students find these placements. At Nyack, the teachers find placements for students are really help their students have experiences they need to achieve their degree.

Athletics: I am not sure what they do. We don't win.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The building where the school is located in a area where there are alot of office buildings. Some students from another school live in the building but, dorming is not available to the city campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The city campus, recently moved near world trade center. We are near the jewish museum, american indian museum, and the staten island ferry. There is s many ways of transprtation, depending where you live. It is very easy to get to jersey. There are shopping areas, parks, the brooklyn bridge, food areas and the statue of liberty that is not far to view.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is okay but I think the cafeteria should be open longer on the weekends. They also need more food options, other places to dine on campus.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: You will meet some very nice and friendly people at Nyack and then you will meet some not so nice and friendly people at Nyack. There are a lot of relationships at Nyack. Student's here are pretty about there business.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The rules aren't too strict. I believe they present reasonable boundaries, except with dress code.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is pretty easy.

4 College Freshman

Majors: They have a great Business Administration program. The Professors are great and the courses are also good. they also have good internship opportunities for Business Majors. Business is also a easy major to get into, there aren't any special requirements, and its a good major.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: The only good thing in this area is Palisades mall. It is the only attraction in this town. The town of Nyack, and main St. which is very close to the college, are places you don't go alone. Our Faculty has told us not to walk to town alone! Frankly I don't see why you would want to walk down there anyway, all that's down there is bad food, rude, drunk and creepy people, and big scary dogs. Most of us don't even go down on Main Street. The only good thing down there is Starbucks, and even their pumpkin spice latte tasted weird. SO you probably should just go to either McDonalds(during the day) or Palisades.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They're aight. We lack all kinds of school spirit tho.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus at the residence Simpson Hall in particular stinks. Simpson Hall is old, filled with spiders and ants, and run down. We constantly deal with maintenance issues that we should not have to deal with. For instance no hot water, or maybe no water, and don't forget the nasty washer and dryer machines. I mean where is our money going! It is the oldest building here and I feel it needs to either be remodeled or condemned. The cost I guess is fine they should just exclude the room and board, or make it cheaper. Simpson Hall is an slightly upscale motel 6. Simpson is literally a hot mess. Im not even gonna tell you about my private bathroom.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The workload is not bad, but you should still stay on top of your studies as always. I think the curriculum is good and registration process does not take that much time or energy.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I will be in intercultural studies and it is great, we learn about missions and how to plug into missions once we graduate. I suggest considering all majors, and choosing whichever major fits you best, or you can come in undeclared

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They were so generous, and gave me a $9,000 academic scholarship right off the bat, which helped a lot. If they want you at the school they will try to provide for you the best way they can

Off-Campus Housing: You can get off campus but it may end up costing about the same. I have not lived off campus so I'm not entirely sure of the cost, but you should be able to get some friends together and find a place.
