New York is a melting pot of culture, and that doesn't stop at food. I live in the West Village, so a lot of the food is expensive but it is GREAT. For lunch out, try Westville for fresh market specials. For a good dinner/drinks spot, the latin/asian fusion SushiSamba is the best choice. If you want a quick, cheap brunch, Sweet Life Cafe is the way to go.

All my friends are straight edge so I have no insight into the drug scene

New York rarely has nice weather. I am from California, and when I returned home for winter break, people were astonished by how pale I was. The sun is out frequently during the summer and spring which is nice, but the weather is either uncomfortably hot, or uncomfortably cold. Going to school at New York teaches you to check the weather frequently and choose your clothes wisely.

NYU is truly a global community. I encounter all ethnic types on a daily basis. Since going to NYU, my worldly perspective has increased tenfold. I have friends in all the race groups and even in the homosexual community. Attending a diverse school such as NYU has prepared me for global networking. It has also taught me to appreciate the importance of cultural diversity. I am more accepting and tolerant of other cultural traditions, and feel like a well educated, worldly individual because of it.

No one cares. I'm not sure if we're bobcats or wildcats...

Guys & Girls:
People are generally attractive and cool and nice. Unfortunately toooo many bridge and tunnel kids pretending to be from the city and going to clubs.

Guys & Girls:
Both girls and guys at NYU are incredibly well dressed and, generally speaking, good looking. Unfortunately, there is a classic conundrum at NYU wherein you cannot tell which guys are gay and which are straight. There is a large openly gay population at NYU, which is great. But as a straight girl, it's hard to tell which guys are gay and which are straight but just well-dressed and really hygienic.

Dorms at NYU are really great compared to other schools. Unless you choose to live in the cheapest dorms, you will have air conditioning. Rather than communal bathrooms and showers, each suite has its own bathroom. Some buildings are cleaner and newer than others. They range from excellent to acceptable.
College Sophomore 2013-02-04T01:48:30Z
It depends on what dorm building you're in. Generally they're not too strict, unless you're visibly drunk or violent.

I find NYU academically challenging and stimulating. Even as a music major I find I have to work hard, especially in my genEd writing course! This university is extremely hard to get into academically, and I definitely see why. Most of my professors are great teachers who clearly love teaching and the subject they teach.
College Sophomore 2013-02-02T15:05:00Z
Here at NYU you're right smack in the middle of Greenwich Village in Manhattan-a pretty cool area if you have a fake I.D. or are over 21. Unfortunately, for 18-21 year olds there's not a lot you can do unless you want to spend money and go to movies or shows uptown (which are amazing, don't get me wrong). There are parties here, we have frats and sororities like everyone else, so if you're into that scene then that works for you. Most parties I've been to have been thrown by my friends.

NYU dining is AWESOME. I've always heard people complain about college dorm food but here there are so many options and the food is typically pretty good as long as you know where to go for what type of meal you want. Meal plans can be expensive but they're worth it especially as a freshman. Although anyone would get tired of the dining halls-there are plenty of other outlets to eat at in New York, if you're willing to spend the money. After freshman year, most dorms include a kitchen so you should get a smaller meal plan and cook more-cheaper! :)
College Sophomore 2013-02-02T14:58:26Z
NYU is a very liberal institution. We have a lot of rules but many students get away with not following them, especially ones concerning alcohol, underage drinking, and drug use. However, academically they take the rules very seriously. There are strict attendance policies that students must follow else they fail their courses. Also cheating is not tolerated.
College Sophomore 2013-02-01T21:53:38Z
Not quite as diverse as I was expecting from New York City. People tend to form groups within their own ethnic groups.

Guys & Girls:
If you're into girls, you're in luck. If you're straight and into guys, I'm sorry. Gay men seem to have it pretty well, too.
College Sophomore 2013-02-01T21:51:08Z
There are a ton of dining halls and most are pretty good for what they are. However, you're required to have a meal plan if you live on campus freshmen year.
College Junior 2013-01-31T23:05:04Z
Guys & Girls:
The school consists of mainly hipsters and students studying abroad. Most of the students are from the suburbs and are in the upper middle class. As for the diversity, the percentages appear to be 40 percent asian, 34 percent white, 25 percent indian, 0.1 percent black and hispanic.
College Sophomore 2013-01-30T17:36:45Z
The dining halls are all unique, and are very good. There are many things to choose from, many options for the picky eater, and the staff in the dining hall are very sweet.
College Sophomore 2013-01-28T20:08:41Z
The food here is really great quality. There are dining halls in almost every freshmen dorm and all around the main part of campus, so food is pretty accessible and you can vary it as you want to. They also offer plenty of to-go options if you're on the run.
College Sophomore 2013-01-28T20:00:11Z
The dorms at NYU are really nice (no communal bathrooms!), and housing is guaranteed to students all four years. Freshmen dorms are located in more convenient places, but upperclassmen dorms, while farther away, are pretty nice. They are spacious and clean enough, for college dorms; most of them are renovated hotels/apartment buildings.
College Sophomore 2013-01-28T16:55:52Z
The parties that are worth mentioning are ones that are exclusively for those who are 21 and older but there are definetly house parties that are worthy of mention.
College Sophomore 2013-01-28T01:53:12Z
NYU is pretty diverse. There are people of many races and backgrounds and the community is relatively accepting.
College Sophomore 2013-01-28T01:48:58Z
The subway system around NYU is great and the on-campus transportation is reliable.
College Senior 2013-01-28T00:19:11Z
most courses are taught by tenured professors and the adjuncts are top notch. the work load is heavy, but doable. there are lots of people along the way that will help you register. you are never alone or abandoned at NYU!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
