The school is located in NYC! There are so many diverse people. You will find many people of different ethnicities, religions, political beliefs, sexual orientation, etc. In my experience, everyone seems very friendly and approachable.

The school is located in New York City so parking will always be difficult. Students commute through public transportation (i,e. bus, subway, train, etc).

As a student in the Silver School of Social Work, I am required to dedicate my time to 4 classes and 20 hours of field work per week. It seems like a lot but as a student you get to put into direct practice what your learning in class into field work. It is a rewarding experience.

New York University is a leading school in globally. There are many campuses around the world. It is leading in research and direct practice.
The professors are very accessible and are hear to help students get the best out of their education. Graduate courses are small so that professors have the time to get to know each student.

I'm really enjoying the dining halls. There is a pretty good variety of food, some healthy some not. I have a feeling that within a few months I'm going to be pretty sick of the dining hall in my dorm, but if that ever happens there are quite a few other dorms where food is available!

Campus life can be very overwhelming at first, because there are so many people and no real campus to contain them. But once you find your space, the social scene becomes so, so much fun!
College Freshman 2013-09-02T02:23:07Z
Everything that I've seen so far has been great. I'm in Third North and I really love my room. The other rooms that I've seen seem like they're really nice as well. The gym at Palladium is beautiful, and the library is absolutely gorgeous. Washington Square Park isn't technically part of the "campus," but it's a beautiful and lively place.

Financial aid here lives up to its infamous reputation. I didn't qualify for any at all, and I know a lot of students who didn't get what they needed.
College Freshman 2013-09-02T02:18:45Z
The summers are really hot and the winters get cold.

While some people say our dorms are overpriced it is important to keep in mind that you will never be able to afford an apartment at any of the locations where NYU has dorms. It really just depends on where you live but most upper classmen dorms (not FYRE residence halls) are really nice.

NYU has sports, but we're certainly not known as a huge sports school. (Our team name is the Violets. Really.) High school athletes will find teams they can join to keep it going -- those who do sports are definitely passionate. Still, people don't really go to sports events unless you're participating or know someone on the team.

Because NYU is in the city of Manhattan located in the village the nightlife is excellent.
College Junior 2013-08-28T02:12:03Z
Public tyransportation is really good inNYC with subways, busses and NYU has its own busses for its students to and from campus to dorms.

THE FOOD IS SO GOOD! Some dining halls are amazing, while some are the typical food. But there's this one dining hall that has a sushi chef make fresh sushi for you. Just wow.

People take drugs. My friends don't, but there's always a crowd somewhere

New York City is just expensive. If you live off-campus, you're most likely gonna end up in Brooklyn, which is a 30 minutes train ride to campus
College Sophomore 2013-08-26T00:58:33Z
I received some financial aid, but not as much as NYU had hinted they would give to a student like me. Some people received none. NYU is the most expensive university in America. They could give more financial aid

Using the grading curve, an A+ will mean some in top 10% of the class.
College Sophomore 2013-08-24T02:38:29Z
The people, especially around Washington Square Park, are all eclectic and interesting. There is constantly something happening around campus, whether it be a party, charity event, or a play/musical. The shopping is also great.
College Sophomore 2013-08-24T02:36:18Z
Despite the high prices of off campus housing, it is sometimes more affordable than living on campus.

The Mac desktop computers are easily accessible and always functioning.

Guys & Girls:
You'll find all kinds of people in NYU. It is a diverse campus and emphasizes global awareness from everyone. You will find yourself several hipsters, but among them you will find regular people as well.
College Sophomore 2013-08-23T00:22:00Z
There is virtually no parking in NYU. Basically if you need to park your car, you'll need to pay an expensive ticket in one of the garages. Your best be would be to use local transportation so you won't have to worry about parking all too much.
College Sophomore 2013-08-23T00:18:18Z
New York is the a fantastic city with several different activities to offer. There is definitely something for everyone who comes here. There is always something interesting going on throughout the week and especially during the weekend. It's not surprising because the city sees so many cultures and talents around here. People are generally very nice but you should definitely know when to keep to yourself. Otherwise, New York is the place to be.

Professors typically have a lot of expertise and great knowledge of subject matter but don't always take teaching very seriously. Classes can be hit or miss - good information is found amid much unnecessary chatter. Workload is light to average. Registration process is easy.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
