Greek life isn't big at NYU. There are plenty of groups to choose from, some more selective than others. They are a good way to get involved and meet people, but they can be quite time-consuming. The bottom line is, those who are in it make it a big part of their life. Those who aren't part of it or who don't wish to be a part of it, aren't really affected. It's a big school with many different ways to meet people and get involved. Greek life is one, but definitely does not dominate.

Although you don't see drug use when walking around campus, I hear friends and students saying that their dorms smell of the stuff every night. However, it doesn't seem to be a big deal and there hasn't been any major problems pertaining to it. Peer pressure definitely is not a problem, as no one has every pressured me or any of my non-drug user friends. I feel very safe in terms of peer pressure and drug use.

Health & Safety:
NYU really works to make sure its students are safe physically and mentally. There are a variety of numbers to call for any number of situations.

There is a lot of great housing in so many different neighborhoods.

New York is so diverse and there is a place for everyone. Campus is located so you are immersed in the culture of the city, and it is great!

The food is, on average, very good. Sometimes vegetables and such that are put out in the raw bar are still frozen, but on a whole the staff seems to be attentive to make sure the students are satisfied. It is very convenient that most freshman dining halls are in dorms, which is very efficient. There is always a dining hall accessible!!

You get automatically reviewed at Tisch for grant money, and you get what you get. Appealing doesn't do anything. The rest, at least, they give you in loans. Apply for many outside scholarships.

There are so many dining halls to actually choose from

Though currently undeclared, I have been taking classes in the Politics and History fields. My professors are very knowledgeable, however the large class size is not an ideal environment for my learning style.

In my opinion, the academics at NYU are as good as any Ivy League education. There are so many classes available and the professors are amazing. The registration process is a total nightmare, but most people end up being happy even if they don't get their first choice of classes. Workload can be tough, but is totally doable if you are hard-working and driven. There are so many great places to study around campus, but they can definitely be crowded, especially on the weekends, so I usually get a lot of work done in my room.

NYC has the best nightlife. You definitely need a fake to go here, but once you have a good one, it is totally worth it and very easy to go out to the local bars or clubs. There is something for everyone in this beautiful city.

I study at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where you create your own concentration. I have only wonderful things to say about the program. It is definitely geared towards students who have independence and drive, but in my opinion, it is the best of all worlds, where you can decide exactly what path to take, but with excellent guidance from the advisers and professors. For those who are interested in applying to Gallatin, I would just suggest being yourself and letting your passions and interest shine through because the school celebrates individuality and independence.

Although frats and sororities do exist, Greek life at NYU is not very prevalent. There are the occasional frat parties, but most people agree that they are not that great. It definitely does not dominate the social scene at all, but it is there for those who want that.

it's an ITP course and with such a program I believe I'll find a job easily.

Everyone at NYU is completely different. Every race goes here. People with different economic backgrounds and religions go here. Everyone is very accepting of others that are different here.

Guys & Girls:
The girls at NYU vary. Most are in between cute and sexy. The styles of each girl is completely different. At least half of the guys at NYU are gay and have their own fashion sense as well.

The parking is terrible in the city. I would rather walk, because you will get to your destination faster. Plus everything such as gyms and stores are in walking distance.

I think the important thing with NYU Financial Aid is to get aid from them EARLY in the process. If you get a larger award your freshman year, it's often much easier to make it through four years than it would be to request additional aid each year. Different schools have different amounts of merit and non-merit aid they'll give out. It's important to contact the financial aid office if you think the award isn't enough because the undergraduate schools may increase your aid if you contact them early and explain your situation.

Parties during freshman and sophomore year tend to be few and far between as it's difficult for people to throw parties when RAs are around policing noise. There's typically a lot of stuff to do outside of dorms, but for people who are underage the option of going to clubs, bars, etc. is pretty limited. If you want to go on a late-night adventure exploring New York City it's possible and safe if you go in a group, but otherwise options may be limited. Once people move off-campus apartment parties are more common. Sometimes people will attend warehouse parties in Brooklyn, but these are a little more complicated. My friends who go to warehouse parties typically go in a group and stay sober because of the increased risks involved. Transportation is never really a problem because the subway runs 24 hours a day. I would not recommend going to places that are too far from a subway station, however.

I love the excitement of New York City. I am a theater major, so New York is obviously the best place in the world for me to be. The theater is, of course, fabulous! And if you are willing to wait in line, you can get less expensive tickets. The food is unbelievable. Even the "cheap" food is somewhat expensive, but I am not a big eater and have a kitchen in my dorm so that helps. Shopping - - there is every store imaginable for whatever you need or want. I feel very safe in New York because there are always people out and about at all hours. I don't really attend sporting events, so I can't really comment on that area. And if you are looking for culture, a quick subway ride takes you to Chinatown or Little Italy, etc. The people of New York could not be nicer. Everyone was helping anyone in need when Hurricane Sandy struck. I love New York.

NYU is as diverse as NYC! There are students of every race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. Students come from all over the world. I am in the arts, so my experience is mainly with that area and I have meet so many people from so many cultures and backgrounds.

NYU has a housing registry which makes it easy to find other students that are looking for roommates or subletters. But if you go outside of NYU's resources there are still a million options, you just have to keep in mind it is New York City and rent will not be cheap.

New York City's night life is incredible. Whether you're over or under 21, you can find a million things to do any night of the week. Clubbing, bar-hopping, frat parties, amazing restaurants, art gallery openings, shows, dance performances, and concerts are available at varying prices, and many can be found for free. NYU Ticket Central has great deals for Broadway shows, movie tickets, and shows put on at NYU facilities.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
