4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy going to school.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Expensive even with financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Need to know people to find parties.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Very good food but expensive.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is super cheap street food and pretty expensive everything else.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is not much of a party scene on campus because there isn't much of a campus but there are parties, shows, and clubs everywhere!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its hard for someone new to the city. Its very small and expensive.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: There is pretty much just yoga and Pilates and stuff like that. Some of the worst sports in the country.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Its exactly how I expected New York City to be. Not much nature or space but its a lot of fun. Better to be over 21.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is generally nice and communicative but you have to ask a lot of people to find your answers. There is a lot of red tape to cut to get what you need but there is usually a way to get it.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at the New School

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I do not live in on-campus housing

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I think I might have chosen to go to a different division of the school if I were doing it over (and I still might consider changing). As a part-time Adult student who is creating her own program, I sometimes feel a lack of community. I think I would feel more part of a group if I were taking a more structured major with a group of classmates.

Majors: I am in a transfer program for Adult students, so I can design my own program and take classes from different divisions of the University. It is really great to be able to choose, yet really overwhelming because there are so many great things to choose from and I don't have that many credits left! I think the most important criteria for admission would be your past academic performance, and being able to write a good admissions essay - we had to complete three different ones.

Campus Quality: It's great to be in the middle of New York City and all of its resources. I do not live on campus, but the buildings that I have reason to visit are beautiful. There are a lot of useful facilities like the up-to-date computer and audio technology labs, and maker centers. The new University Center is built for sustainability - I went on a tour led by the building engineer and it was really interesting to learn about how it works. There are lots of activities around social justice and some around innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as heavy involvement in the arts on campus.

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small, you can get a lot of personal attention. I had one professor who was extremely organized and kept us up to date on our assignments. I had another professor who was wonderful in class but took forever to grade or hand back assignments. In both cases, I think we learned to be very self-reliant and responsible for our work. I find the environment makes me want to do my best. I'm very grateful to be there.

Greek Life: We do not have fraternities and sororities, as far as I know.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: The food is of excellent, it's like healthy restaurant food. However, I do not eat there often as I find it as expensive as a restaurant. The people that work in dining services are really nice and the coffee is really strong! It's great that they chose a local brand of coffee. There are lots of events around school and panel discussions often have some refreshments afterward.

Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: I don't want to objectify the other students, they are individuals.

Party Scene: I'm an adult transfer student, so I am not part of this activity.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It's hard for me to rate as I may be changing from a liberal arts degree to something targeting a more specific job description. I would say to anyone coming here to concentrate on any course that's project or team-oriented or has some component like civic engagement or independent research - those seem like the real opportunities to do something in the outside world. Career services seem very willing to help. Job fairs do happen on campus, I wish there were a little more variety in the businesses represented - I'd like to see some smaller businesses come as well as the larger corporations.

Diversity: There are many student groups who work on diversity issues regarding LGBTQ people, and people of color. We had bell hooks come lead several seminars at our school. Most faculty seem to be sensitive to diversity issues; the school tends toward the liberal politically. There is a social justice hub and a student group for poor and low income students, traditionally has been an area not talked about and this is to correct that. I have also attended a faculty-sponsored meeting on issues of advancement for women who work at the school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Classes are small, almost always under 15 students, and students from other 'schools' within The New School can take courses in other departments, allowing further interdisciplinary work. Most classes seem to focus on studying theory but also placing emphasis on innovation and application to the world we live in.

4 College Junior

Administration: Generally, it's great. The university seems to embrace creativity, progressive ideas, and the voices of the students. The majority of classes taught (even on traditional subjects) incorporate a Socratic approach to learning and idea that there is always more to discover.

Campus Housing: I live off campus in another borough of New York. However, with the transit system, it's incredibly convenient still.
