It can be hard in the winter when there is snow, slush, and ice. Classes can be ten blocks apart depending on the subject.

At Stern, everyone is the top of their class, which makes it competitive, but also brings out the best in yourself.

There are countless restaurants and food courts around campus. One only has to walk out of the building to find somewhere decent.

The freshman housing, for the most part, is fantastic - all dorms close to campus and relatively nice with the newer ones being larger. However, anything higher than a sophomore and housing becomes a nightmare with the only option living in Chinatown, or in a suite with 7 other people (like in Greenwich Hotel).

I don't have an internship - I work full-time during school.

Health & Safety:
While the campus is in the middle of NYC, it is extremely safe. There is a significant presence of campus security and NYU buildings are carefully labeled. You definitely have to be a bit street-smart, but I would say that is true for living anywhere (especially most college campuses).
College Senior 2013-06-28T02:22:36Z
My program is fantastic and the professors are all leaders in their respective fields. The workload is intense, but to be expected from this type of program.
College Senior 2013-06-28T02:22:31Z
The admissions process is extremely competitive; however, once you're enrolled, the school is supportive of your specific needs and does everything to make sure you are successful.

I got a very big scholarship and it I had no trouble accepting it. It was as simple as a click of a button. But I was very lucky not everyone gets a scholarship.
College Sophomore 2013-06-27T20:30:02Z
I've never encountered anyone that tried to break up a party or anything. All parties really happen outside the dorms really so it's not much of a problem.

New York City offers so much and NYU definitely takes advantage of all it has to offer. Shopping is always fun and exciting. There are countless of thrift stores in the hipster neighborhood of Greenwich Village and glam fashion in nearby Soho. If you're not interested in what NYU specifically has to offer there is something for everyone in the city. There are a bunch of touristy things to do in the beginning and so many events to attend. It'll be hard to get bored if you're actually looking. :)

The dorms at NYU are all pretty good. Even the "bad dorms" have some good aspects about them. Most of the freshman dorms are pretty close to campus (Washington Square Park) and some have dining halls which is really convenient since you have to have a meal plan your first year. Most of the upper-classmen dorms are kind of far, so you have to take the NYU bus (which is free) but they are all nice in my opinion. Some are better than others, most people say Gramercy Green is the best, some don't have air conditioning, but I think you can make any of them work and have a good experience. They are all like city apartments, but instead of having to pay rent every month you only have to pay once a semester. If you do your research you can make the best decision for yourself.

Dining at NYU could be better, but it could be worse. For the first half of Freshman year, I was totally happy with it. Second half is when it really started to wear on me, and I started to get really sick of it. It was also when I visited a few of my friends schools and saw how much better their dining was that I saw how bland ours was in comparison. NYU provides pretty healthy options though, and the basic stuff tastes decent for the most part.
College Junior 2013-06-24T21:59:36Z
Compared to most colleges, NYU has decent dorms. I'd recommend Gramercy to anyone who can get it.

Guys & Girls:
School is severely lacking talent, more so in terms of attractive girls than guys, but not by much. Don't come to NYU looking for that.
College Sophomore 2013-06-14T17:50:52Z
There is little Greek Life. But there are some fraternities that are linked to other schools that NYU students can join.
College Sophomore 2013-06-14T17:50:15Z
This past year it has been pretty cold, but it wasn't just NYC. Otherwise, in the summer it gets pretty hot and congested because of all the traffic and little open spaces. It can be pretty windy and cold because you're by water (downtown). But there are some really nice days when everyone is outside.
College Sophomore 2013-06-14T17:46:40Z
Although NYU has a non-smoking campus, students smoke around school and dorm buildings all the time. They are rarely scolded for their behavior, and it is not very discreet. Although I have heard of strict policies towards drinking and partying in dorm rooms.
College Sophomore 2013-06-14T17:44:54Z
Parking in NYC is definitely a hassle. There are either parking meters in the area or no available free parking on the streets. There are many parking garages, some even really nearby, but they are usually too expensive for a college student. Definitely better off taking the subway.
College Sophomore 2013-06-13T16:08:53Z
Plenty of resources no matter where you go, and if you ever need anything, the professors and librarians are great sources as well.
College Sophomore 2013-06-13T16:07:24Z
It's available to those who want it, but it isn't a central aspect on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-06-13T16:06:46Z
Overall the academic are great, some students are slackers but you get that at every school.
College Sophomore 2013-06-13T16:03:24Z
The school itself has plenty of space and many of the buildings are designed well, but lacks some student hang out spaces and library space (especially during finals) but since you are in the middle of New York City, you will always have other places to go "off-campus"
College Sophomore 2013-06-13T16:01:43Z
NYU has a huge amount of opportunities and resources available to it's students , and although some people may complain about the large classes, they just aren't taking advantage of all of the other academic opportunities offered to them

New York's transportation system is well managed and staffed.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
