Very diverse in terms of cultural background but less diverse with regard to political views/religious beliefs.

I haven't revived my financial aid package yet but I have called the office with questions and I have received extremely detailed help.

There are a vast majority of different majors. I will have to report next month about the professors because I am newly graduate nursing student.

I'm a newly admitted student therefore I am unable truly this.

I can only stat that they are available however I haven't really attended any.

There is a variety is student activities both on and off campus. These activities are advertised everywhere. Unfortunately I am unable to attend many of them because I am a single mother working full time and attending school part time.

There are numerous computers, but because many students use them, there is sometimes a bit of a wait.

My program is interdisciplinary and gives lots of freedom with course selection. The amount of reading can be intense, but that's the life of an English major.

Since you're in NY, the possibilities for interning are endless. I'm in publishing internships right now, and I've made some great connections.

If you commute, you don't get meal plans. First year dormers get mandatory meal plan. I had one my first year, got off it by second year and missed it. You don't appreciate it until you either a. don't have it and go down to the Chinese take-out every other day or b. visit another school (ie Stony Brook) and realize how NYU has us on a silver platter. Prices are way to high though-it is NYC but you have to try to get the cheap stuff, otherwise lunch can be around $10 and dinner over $20.

NYU is in the center of the city. It is "in and out" of the city as it is "in and out" of the world. WIth over 10+ study abroad sites, you feel that you are connected to each continent and you can go anywhere you chose. Most people I interact with on a daily basis have had either some direct or indirect affiliation with NYU. Museums everywhere, and the best ones. When it comes to having a campus, though, we fall a bit short. Greek life is basically non-existent. And since we don't have a campus, you have to get out of your way to make friends.

The school owned parking lot is not very close to the school. It's costs $100 a year to park there and there is no security. When I was a senior, one of my classmates' car was vandalized and there was no way of figuring who did it. The only other available parking is on the street, which is narrow and can cause the people living in the neighborhood to complain. The way to get the best street parking is to get to school 20-25 minutes before school starts.

In order to be accepted to the Drama program you need to prepare an audition. In my case it was a classical and contemporary monologue. I needed to travel to one of the cities they were holding auditions --San Francisco for the West Coast.

NYU's undergrad drama program balances conservatory acting program with a liberal arts education. So you come out well-rounded. 3 days a week are conservatory acting program and the other 2 are academics.

I loved being at NYU's drama program. It offered a choice of many different styles of acting, etc and integrated with the film and dramatic writing depts. New York City is your campus. You have access to the best theater and research facilities in the world, plus some of the best working theater professionals in the world.

Depends on the studio you are in. Some are bettet than others. You get what you put in to it. there are endless opportunities at NYU and other colleges you just have to create them if they are not there.
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T23:47:52Z
There is really no parking anywhere and everyone walks, bikes, takes the subway, or taxis.

NYU is not known for giving a lot of scholarship money, but I did receive a great amount for me based on my audition into the Drama Program. I also applied for the FAFSA which has helped a lot. Of course, these processes are somewhat of a hassle, but it needs to be done so that I can afford to get an education. Despite NYU's reputation, they do really use the tuition money they receive efficiently and effectively because they are always updating their facilities and many of the buildings and the fitness center are very well-kept. Also, there are security guards everywhere, which is necessary in order to keep people safe in an unpredictable environment such as NYC.

Many people choose to live in Brooklyn because NYC is known to be very expensive. But, if you can find roommates and search everywhere for reasonably priced housing/a place that fits into your budget, I am sure that you can find something because the possibilities are endless. Of course, not all buildings have security guards or doormen, but this is a risk you take when you live off-campus. The cost can be about the same if you find a good price. Also, the school does give help finding places and there are many online databases and websites that you can use.
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T23:38:32Z
There are soooo many diverse, interesting, and delicious off-campus dining choices around NYU. Some places are more expensive than others which is why I didn't give a higher grade, however, it is NYC so you can easily find a cheap restaurant with any type of food in a matter of minutes. Many places also give student discounts and NYU offers online access to popular places nearby.
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T23:25:37Z
NYU is not a very strict campus. As long as you are smart while you are misbehaving you will probably be fine.
College Sophomore 2013-08-06T23:24:05Z
The bar scene is good, and you don't need a driver since you can get everywhere on foot or with public transport. But, if parties are your thing you are out of luck.

The computer labs are helpful but the printers tend to go out of order and sometimes the hours are inconvenient.

Health & Safety:
I have always felt safe on NYU's campus. The public saftey office is pretty accessible. However, you are in NYC.

After Freshman year, you move further away from the center of campus where the good dining halls, the library, and your classes are. Dorm rooms range from small to average sized, but security is tight and very reassuring. After freshman year, no one really cares to socialize with their neighbors anymore so don't take it personally if you never see who you're living next to. Laundry units in all buildings, some like Hayden, Weinstein, Third North and Rubin have their own dining halls which is the best. Goddard is awful and cult-like and requires a community service quote each semester, don't live there.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
