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.

Class is rarely cancelled, even during blizzards, and it gets super windy which leaves you with chapped skin on your hands and face from walking to class. After Hurricane Sandy, the school was closed for a week or so and most students were evacuated from their buildings into the Student Center and two dorms that had backup generations. When it's cold, it's freezing and when it's hot, it's humid.

Meal plans are expensive but extremely convenient because feeding yourself while going to class and working is more difficult than it seems. The food is decent, even great if you're not spoiled by having a parent who is an amazing cook, and there's a variety of cuisine including Halal, Vegan, Chinese, Mexican, Indian and more. There's also an on-campus Starbucks that accepts Flex dollars, and a dozen or so other places that accept NYU Campus Cash. When you get tired of dining hall food, you can have almost anything delivered to your building. The Village has an amazing variety of great, inexpensive restaurants that you can go to for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you don't mind leaving the sanctity of your dorm room/apartment.

Guys & Girls:
NYU's student population is skewed in favor of the straight male; there is an abundance of smart, beautiful and talented women who attend. However, things suck if you're a girl looking for something more serious. The guys know they have the pick of the litter and it turns them into complete assholes. Girls have to lower their standards if they want to be in a relationship at all. I've been here for two years and have only been on one date, which was awful. The guy only talked about himself, his classes and his rich family who pays for his Bleecker Street apartment. Ladies, don't lower your standards! You deserve to be with someone who is not a complete jerk!

Majors here at NYu in general are great, I'm sure you can never go wrong.
College Senior 2013-08-05T14:48:55Z
I guess just being in the city in general offers you endless possibilities of transportation. I feel like you can always get where you need to with that. As for the shuttles, there are also shuttles that help transport you around as well for free.

Since i'm a commuter, I don't really take part in the Greek Life.
College Senior 2013-08-05T14:45:47Z
I am a commuter therefore I'm not familiar with campus housing.

School spirit is hard to come by and there is little fan support for most athletic events. The athletic facilities on campus are in dire need of renovations.
College Sophomore 2013-08-05T02:35:58Z
The network reliability is not always the best. The computer labs are often full, especially around finals.
College Sophomore 2013-08-05T02:35:22Z
There are an abundance of academic programs and clubs at NYU. There is always something to do and always something new to be tried.
College Sophomore 2013-08-05T02:32:57Z
Most of the facilities are in good condition but some buildings are in need of renovation.

Don't bring a car. Just don't bring it. You're in New York City.

Guys & Girls:
Lots of hipsters, everyone is fashionable, New Yorkers are just hot.
College Sophomore 2013-08-04T13:18:38Z
Lol they suck. New York University is NOT known for its sports.
College Sophomore 2013-08-04T01:12:53Z
Because it's in New York, the rent is obviously very high and it can be hard to find a good apartment that's both affordable and in a good enough area. Especially hard to get apartments near campus, but sometimes if you can find one, it's better than on campus housing because it will be cheaper.
College Sophomore 2013-08-04T01:07:14Z
It's located in new york city so the trains can bring you anywhere you want to go.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T13:56:24Z
NYU offers a wide variety of majors and through the Gallatin School it is possible to have a concentration in almost anything. People have majored in things such as the color blue and smiling. As silly as they may sound NYU is able to make any major accessible and relatable.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T13:55:02Z
NYU has spent a lot of money and planning creating beautiful and accessible spaces for study, sports, or simply enjoying time with friends.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T13:51:33Z
You must be on top of the financial aid office if you want sufficient aid. NYU has a reputation for not giving money. Form good relationships with pepople in the financial aid office for sure.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T13:49:36Z
Being in the heart of NYC you have access to some of the best spots in town. Age limits are strict and greek life is not huge on campus. So, students will have to seek other schools or get creative when looking for a good time.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T02:00:36Z
Personal statement is the most important part. Having professional or volunteer experience is an absolute must.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T01:59:02Z
I plan on having an internship because it is part of my program. I am not concerned about finding one.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T01:57:37Z
going great and i wouldnt trade it for anything this is what will make me a good social worker
College Junior 2013-08-01T22:32:38Z
I have been very satisfied with the education I am receiving thus far. My professors are professionals in the field and offer real life experiences from the field. The workload is reasonable. Stressful around finals and midterms, but that's to be expected.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
