You are in New York City. There is everything, anything, you could possibly want. There's 1$ pizza, there's fast food, there's sushi, there's upscale seafood, there's theme restaurants... I could go on. Basically, if you want it, you can find it. Right around Washington Square Park there is a good selection of cheaper cafés and smaller scale restaurants, and of course the village is the best place to brunch!

NYU is famously stingy. There are very few merit scholarships available to students, and they are quite competitive. That said, they are available, and I have gotten one as have a couple other people. More interestingly, there is money to be had, and depending on the program you are in, there are grants and fellowships that provide funding for certain things.

NYU is located in what most people consider the coolest part of New York City - which is made so in part by the huge numbers of students in the area. Even so, students blend in seamlessly with tourists, residents, visitors etc. There is always something happening, and Washington Square Park is prime people-watching.

Most of the facilities at NYU are really fantastic and modern. Of course, there are some buildings/labs/spaces that aren't quite as up to snuff, but in general everything is in working condition, and more than that, nice. There are computer labs in many buildings, although printing is more limited (only available in some of the bigger buildings). The gyms are really nice too!

Health & Safety:
I feel ultra safe while on campus. I always see security walking around the neighborhood at all times. I have not seen any crimes in the area either. Everyone is so nice and polite. They even have special security measures. If you personally don't feel safe, they will drive you home. How great is that!

I love my program for School Counseling. The professors are so welcoming and friendly and want to help you achieve the best that you can. They have an extra bilingual section as well. I find this to be a great advantage especially for those looking to work in areas with great diversity like New York. They provide great resources and career hunting. Before I started at NYU they had me look into jobs that are of my interest. I was employed the week before classes started. I have no doubt that it will be easy to find a job in my field after I graduate.

Night life is great at NYU. There is always something to do for all ages, even if you are under 18. There are so many events and great places to visit. In the center of NYU there is a park that people play music sometimes or entertain others with their magic tricks or other outstanding talents like dancing and teaching others.

They have a variety of different foods to select from. Both cold and hot. There are also great places to go to in the school area. From Greek to Chinese to Mexican to Italian to even Japanese food. Its a great way to explore other cultural foods that you find interesting. Maybe even give you ideas for traveling to specific areas around the world. But if you would like to stay around the dining hall, there are some great spots to sit in. Outdoors and in, secluded or with groups. Plus you can add cash to your NYU ID card and purchase at the campus dining area or outside to selected areas, charged to you with no tax. Win, win situation if you ask me.

I am not sure as I commute to school and don't know how the campus housing is. Although I would like to think it is very nice because I have passed by a few places that provide campus housing. Looked very comfortable and homey. Plus the environment is welcoming and relaxing.

Good diversity shown by variety of organizations and groups that spread awareness.

Health & Safety:
I can say with certainty that campus is safe. The only issue I've faced was when someone stole my jacket in a campus building freshman year, and was never relocated. I never feel unsafe on campus, even after dark.
College Senior 2013-10-07T16:16:22Z
C here being average. NYU does offer help, but it is sparse. I was fortunate enough to receive a merit grant, which are comfortable here. Really though, these grants just serve to bring tuition down to the straight cost of a regular university. I love NYU and all the opportunities it offers, but it is overpriced.
College Senior 2013-10-07T16:14:18Z
NYU has two comprehensive facilities (on the northern and southern sides of campus). Both of these have everything you need. My only frustration is that the gym near me (Palladium) doesn't open as early as I'd like. Fortunately though, both facilities are open until 11:00 PM during weekdays.

Being in New York City makes it easy for you to find a place to eat. Whether it is a small local restaurant or a chain restaurant, NYU students can get it all.
College Sophomore 2013-10-03T03:42:52Z
NYU has highly qualified professors teaching its courses, a huge library that is open 24/7, and there's always room in some part of campus for you.

There is no city to study and live in than New York City. Although we may not qualify as having a traditional campus, I would not have it any other way. If we want to study in any location in New York, it is accessible to us at any time. Washington Square Park also makes our campus area beautiful throughout all seasons.
College Sophomore 2013-10-03T02:39:22Z
My school offers a dual degree program that not only prepares us for "traditional" classrooms, but also special needs classrooms. It is unique in that we are put into classrooms as student teachers for four whole semesters, giving us a better sense of the life of a teacher.
College Senior 2013-10-01T20:28:47Z
I love my program, and I am extremely happy with it, however, I am unhappy with the price of it. I feel as though while the degree is wonderful, it may not be worth the price for the name. With that said, though, the professors are all excellent, and the program is great, so overall I am happy with the content of my program.

Weather usually doesn't have an effect on the campus experience, however when it snows it can get a little dicey. Because the Washington Square Campus is easily accessible to those living on campus by foot, most classes don't get cancelled. If you go to a satellite campus, such as the Westchester County Campus, this becomes a bit frustrating since you have to drive in to classes, which can become next to impossible at times.

As a social work major, I have interned both as a social worker in a school setting as well as in a mental health clinic. I have thoroughly enjoyed both experiences, and feel as though NYU did a great job placing me. Social Work interns are generally unpaid unless you are in a FLO, but the experience you get is great.

Off Campus Dining can't get any better than New York: amazing restaurants with every possible cuisine, late night deliveries to 24 hour pizza places and drug stores. For anyone with specific dietary needs, New York City is where you'll have the most options. The possibilities are endless.
College Sophomore 2013-09-28T22:33:17Z
NYU is a big school and the facilities definitely cater to every students' needs. There are plenty of places to go, classrooms, lounge areas, Washington Square Park, and we even have an entire library (Bobst) to our dispense.
College Sophomore 2013-09-28T22:30:48Z
My freshman dorm was great. It was spacious, clean and new. I made really great friends and although it was a walk to class, it's still a walk through New York City. However, I can't say that everyone's dorm experience was as good as mine.
College Sophomore 2013-09-28T22:28:36Z
It exists but there are no big football games and rallies for all the students. But NYU definitely makes intramurals and other sports available for anyone and everyone interested in sports.
College Sophomore 2013-09-28T22:27:04Z
New York City. What else is there to say? Unlimited opportunities and experiences at your doorstep. Plus, I'm studying abroad right now in London and my friends are in Abu Dhabi, Shanghai, Spain, Italy---everywhere around the world. NYU definitely defines the global network university.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
