I came to Yeshiva University because it has a great pre-med program. Campus life is fun and engaging, there's a different event each night so if you want to fill your calendar it really isn't that difficult! The midtown location provides opportunity in itself to see the city and really see the dozen parades happening regularly! Classes are intriguing and the professors are only wanting to see you take your education far in life!

amazing, I can tell that The University is not what it once was. Unfortunately, the bureaucracy is slowly eating the University's finances away, causing good professors to leave and bringing in adjuncts who couldn't care less about the students. Then again, there are some great professors at YU, but at this rate I'm not sure how much longer they'd be able to stay. What the university needs is a complete reconstruction of their financial prioritization as well as sensible fiscal accountability. Only then will YU be able to keep professors for extended contracts and pay them enough to genuinely care about their students. I personally am a Political Science Major and Economics Minor, and I can attest to this dilemma. This past year (2012) the Political Science department lost all but one professor, making the department I once knew alien to me. There have also been cuts to the Economics department, as well as most all departments in the social and hard sciences.

The professors at YU are great! However, there is not much variety in the classes and many of the fields are very limited. The double workload can at times be stressful, but I still find time to be involved in a number of extracurricular activities each semester and work part-time.
