Guys & Girls:
Guys are fairly attractive but it will seem as if they are hard to find. Most either have a girlfriend or are gay, which isn't a bad thing but it doesn't help when trying to date. They make great friends, though!!!

This is Manhattan so it is easy to find something new to eat everyday. There is Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, German, Italian, Mexican, and Polish cuisine, just to name a few. There is something for everyone.

There are a lot of options for student life. There are the dining halls, the student lounges that are everywhere and most importantly washington square park is almost like NYU's quad and you can always find lots of students there!

At New York University they pride themselves on their teachers, many of who have gained much favor in their academic areas. However, like all university's, not all the professors are up to par which can be difficult, though these professors tend to remain at low-level subjects.

There are lots of options in Campus Dining. They have vegan and vegetarian options galore and plenty of normal dishes as well. They even have homemade sushi at one of the residence halls!

No parking. Walk to the school if you live nearby or take the subway.

greek life is basically nonexistant; but there are greek type clubs, however, nothing like you would see at normal colleges; NYU has a med school greek fraternity and pre law also;

College Junior 2013-03-27T22:19:29Z
great academic programs, such as speaking freely which can teach you over 50 free languages; could still use more options in certain departments such as neur & history
College Junior 2013-03-27T22:17:47Z
pretty good; lots of course options; wish at times there were more specific ones;

I am very happy I chose Gallatin. If I could change anything it would be course selections. For instance, only now in my junior year do I realize i am super interested in physics and wish i could have taken more courses in it, instead of so many cultural studies classes I took. But that's the beauty of Gallatin: always being shown new studies as you progress. I'm not too sure about my career goals. I love studio art, but of course it's not a very easy career to get into. I suppose I'm pretty concerned but I know my creativity will always be able to help me find some type of job. Gallatin is also great with finding internships. Lots of my friends have awesome internships at record labels, magazines, tv stations, so they got nothing to sweat about!

The dining halls are really only nice for convenience. With most of the meal plans you end up spending approx. $15 for each meal, which is TOTALLY not worth it. You could get a pretty decent restaurant meal for that much. So it really is just the convenience of these places being scattered around Washington square that makes it nice. The quality of dining halls is pretty normal for a college, but it's just not worth $15 when you have lots of other options at your fingertips.

A Little of Each, a Lot of Others – Although you will probably find a person from almost every corner of the earth at NYU the percentages seem somewhat unbalanced. The majority is middle class white kids, but that doesn't mean you can't find other groups. NYU has many ethnic clubs and organizations. You will also meet diverse crowds just in your day-to-day experience. Last year I had a girl from Guam live across the hall from me!

Not Too Necessary, but There If You Need It. There is a variety of options with transportation. The subway system is excellent and relatively cheap. Taxis will be a bit pricier unless you travel with four people and not too far. NYU also offers Public Safety Ride which is like a taxi but I think they'll only do it after a certain time. There is also the bus system of NYU which takes students from campus to dorms scattered throughout the city, but it has a strange schedule I have heard. It is pretty easy to get to JFK. You could just take a taxi (easiest), but there is also the subway to Jamaica and then AirTrain to the airport.

Subway lines make it very easy to travel, even from the farthest dorms. The bus service is pretty convenient as well--buses usually come by every 15 minutes. Walking is the obvious mode of transportation. Most dorms have under a 15 minute walk to campus.
College Senior 2013-03-25T15:54:32Z
NYU is located in the center of the hustle and bustle of the city. You have easy access to the subway as well as city buses. I would recommend using Hopstop.com to figure out any directions int he city using public transportation
College Junior 2013-03-22T02:55:03Z
It's definitely convenient to live on-campus since the dorms are all relatively close to campus, and things like not having to worry about rent, utilities, toilet paper, etc. are nice because it's one less things to worry about. That being said, sometimes living off-campus is more cost-effective that dorming at NYU, but there are the tradeoffs like finding a place and sub-letting it, etc. if you're going away. I like the dorms overall though
College Junior 2013-03-22T02:48:07Z
The easiest way to get around NYC is via the subway. There's a subway stop in the NYU area which makes it easy to get from class to internship/, job, etc. There's also an NYU shuttle bus that goes from the farther-away dorms to campus, but I've heard mixed reviews about it.

Nightlife is fantastic... if you are 21 or if you have a fake. Otherwise you're basically screwed.
I came into school not expecting to get a fake, because access to alcohol is so easy and there are quite a few liquor stores that don't even card. But it's not the problem of getting alcohol- its going out.
Since NYU doesn't really have a frat/sorority scene, all "parties" take place off campus or in bars/clubs. Going out on the weekend usually involves going bar hopping.
College Junior 2013-03-19T03:53:06Z
subway and buses are, of course, very accesible. However the NYU transportation has its moments depending on the dorm. My dorm, Greenwich Hotel, tends to have a bus that comes fairly infrequently which can be a problem for early morning classes. Also the bus doesn't always show up for the time it is scheduled to . The buses for the other dormsare fairly reliable though.

The weather varies throughout the year. It has been pretty good the past few years, and there were not many difficulties going to and from school. The past couple of years we had a couple of bad hurricanes and a couple of noreasters. This effected going to and from school for a couple of days but the school recovered for the most part and classes resumed.

The many campuses of NYU have a wide range of different ethnic groups of people. They make up the many specialized courses of study offered at the university. The university is great at connecting the many people from various backgrounds and programs to meet and greet through the many alumni and social events offered throughout the year. The school is outstanding in reaching out the their students at all phases of their lives - whether they are at the start of their career paths or midway or at the end or near retirement.

The computers are always upgraded. The wifi can be slow sometimes because the amount of students that are using it all at once. It is best to bring your own laptop.

Health & Safety:
New York University provides students with the utmost safety anyone could ever expect
College Senior 2013-03-10T17:16:49Z
There is of course a lot of "diversity" at NYU, but there is a considerably larger ethnic group than others that tends to skew the perception of the student body.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
