3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Pros: Community, you have an illusion of a social life, and there's always someone to talk to.

Cons:The rushing process gets pretty intense. Prepare for a drop in your GPA if you intend on pledging.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: This is an engineering schools. Brains over brawns. >:(

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Choose your professors wisely. Always seek the advice of upperclassman. The food isn't that great, the campus is pretty small - but if you graduate from here, you'll probably won't have to worry about money. $$$ is in engineering.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school is very safe, but i cannot say it is a safe campus because there is no defined campus. There are security officers at every entrance of every building and no building can be entered without a NYU ID. I feel extremely safe on campus. There are services that keep me and make me feel safe. There is also a safe ride that will pick students up late at night from any NYU building and bring them to any NYU building.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class size is very small, except for general courses like chemistry and CS. Every professor is passionate about their profession and teaches their class with great enthusiasm and knowledge. The courses offered correlate with your chosen major and differ little from this. The smaller, specialized classes are very intimate and you really get to know your professor and they really get to know you, which is helpful since they are a part of your major and can help you in upcoming years.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: By attending this school and by working hard, a high paying job is almost guaranteed shortly after graduation. Once you begin to go into major specified courses, internships and research opportunities line up. This school wants you to succeed and helps you succeed.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm for the engineering school is extremely convenient. It is only a one minute walk to the library and the building which most classes are held. This is the best option for new students who have just left home and adjusting to college life. The dorms are equipped with nice lounges on every floor where homework and socializing can be done. The social atmosphere is family life, where each floor forms a bond with their floor mates. It is a very unique and great experience. The housing process was very straightforward and easy to complete.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life makes up an extremely small part of our University. It is well known but many people do not rush. Knowing someone personally in Greek life here, I have realized that for them, the Greek life is not about partying, but much more about serving others. The sorority that I am most familiar with emphasizes their service on helping children diagnosed with cancer. They often read to these children, or host movie nights with them. Greek housing is not common, but when it is, it is usually in a penthouse of one of the residence halls.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: For this school being knowing for its performing arts, sports are often forgot about. I do not see much school spirit or fan support for our school because we are a D3 school. Athletic events are always advertised and when they are attended, the school spirit is present.The athletic facilities are extremely nice for not having a major affiliation to varsity sports. Our sports center is set to be rebuilt this year to expose students and athletes to the newest facilities. We also have many other smaller athletic facilities which are all extremely nice and equipped with the best.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Attending a global University with basically no defined campus is life-changing. Here, I am able to find myself by living an independent life, exploring one of the greatest cities in the world. I feel like I have all the opportunities in the world at my fingertips.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It is a great thing that my school offers a variety of sports and how they encourage students to join regardless of how experienced they are in that sport. But I do not like how they have a specific time to register for the clubs. It would be better if there was no such limitation.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have learned so much things at my school! Although it may be challenging at times, when I overcome these obstacles, I feel great about myself for accomplishing them and not giving up. And the people that I met at this school, I am so grateful for them!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The courses are hand-picked by the professors, who are experts in their fields and put in a lot of effort into designing the curriculum in such a way that, you not only get to learn new and interesting stuff, but you learn how to implement it in real life scenarios.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Lots of recruiting events are hosted on campus throughout the year, with many fortune 500 companies as well as start-ups hiring students. The school has many opportunities for the people who know how to look into the right places. Career center as well as alumni can help you find a good opportunity.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus and none of the people I know (and I know many) have been a victim of an assault. Public safety department does its job well.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: It doesn't make a huge difference if you're not a part of a fraternity or a sorority. Sure, you are a little famous if you're a part of one, but you could be famous for many other reasons.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's one of the best and oldest private engineering schools in the country, with great emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship. I have come across some of the best teachers at this school, who are not only good at what they do, but also like helping out students. Being located in one of the best cities in the world, you get so much exposure, get to network with many people, interact with people from different backgrounds and cultures, and evolve as a person.

4 College Senior

Athletics: There are many athletic facilities, including, but not limited to, a couple of gyms, basket ball courts, swimming pools, tennis courts, racquet ball courts, volleyball courts, etc. albeit, some of them are at different locations in the city. Many students use the facilities.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes are cool and the location is great. Some of the teachers are really interesting too.

Party Scene: There is not much of a party scene when it comes to engineering school because of the workload. Students who live the party scene lifestyle tend to go to NYU's main campus.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am majoring in chemical engineering and can say that the material is pretty tough, but I personally find the workload to be okay (compared to other majors). As long as you don't take more credits than you can handle you should be fine.
