I live in 3n, and we have a very small dorm with no closet space. Bathroom was so dirty when we go thtere. It has a great location though.

While the guards may be a pain in the butt some of the time with signing guests in and out and such, the quality of the dorms I feel are better than most colleges. Underclassman dorms are decent, and many of the upperclassman dorms were renovated luxury apartments, making them a great deal nicer. Other dorms are really convenient, with dining halls and gyms in the same building. Overall, it's great living in the NYU dorms.

My flatmates consisted of a girl from Montana who went to TASIS, a San Franciscan Chinese girl, someone from India, another from Connecticut, and a girl from Singapore. They were so fun to learn from and spend time with.

At NYU, many of the major choices are structured very well except for the inclusion of a mandatory writing class that seems less beneficial than it is detrimental. Other than that, most of the professors I've encountered are truly passionate about passing on their knowledge to the students.

I like it but I wish they would pay more attention to career services for international students

I am an LLM student and I am pretty happy with the program. I would definitely do it again if I could.

There are two reliable printing center labs at NYU that use the $50 printing money that is on your NYU ID. So- basically, free printing. However, there are many other places on campus like the Library or the Welcome Center where you can print, but you have to pay actual money. The printing centers are convenient around campus.

There are many kids from all across the country and the world! There is a richness of culture, language, and religion around campus. Of course there is a diversity in economic background, political beliefs, and sexual orientation- as there is at every college!

Health & Safety:
We don't actually have a walled in campus, but every building has pretty intense security so it's safe. We also have Safe Ride which you can call to pick you up if you don't have a way to get home or you're inebriated. However, you have to be careful, because the city is your campus and there are dangers out there!

It is fairly easy to switch majors at NYU, except for the competitive majors like Finance in the Stern School of Business or International Relations in the College of Arts and Science. Thus, it would be smart to apply for a major that is not as competitive because once you are admitted, you can easily switch majors. NYU tends to like students who value the arts; it doesn't mean you have to pursue the arts academically but your college essays should have something to do with appreciating the arts and wanting to surround yourself in that type of culture.

NYU is surprisingly not as diverse as one would originally think. The majority of students are Jewish and Asian.

Given that housing in New York City is expensive, NYU campus housing is good because it comes pre-furnished (except for kitchenware) and you don't need to sign a year-lease (you only sign per semester). The campus housing is also in good locations for the money.

If you are under 21, it can be difficult to find fun parties but if you're over 21, there are tons of NYU bar parties!
College Sophomore 2012-12-12T21:29:38Z
There is always something to do in the city. During Welcome Week you're going to get flyers and Facebook messages about expensive clubs that let you buy (even more expensive) drinks underage. Do yourself a favor and stay away from those. Huge waste of money. They're really gross and not fun at all. Eventually you'll start finding out about house (apartment) parties and frat parties which are much more fun. If you aren't into parties there's still plenty to do. Broadway shows, movies, concerts, etc.

The whole city is at your fingertips at NYU. The specific area of the city that NYU is in (Greenwich Village/Washington Square Park area) is an amazing area, not overwhelming like other parts of the city. There are amazing restaurants and bars and it's absolutely perfect!!!! I love it.

A good amount of people smoke weed, but it is not nearly as prevalent as alcohol. Most people drink and go to bars and clubs on the weekends. Other drugs are present but are not huge.

Guys & Girls:
If you're a gay guy you're pretty set. If you're a straight girl who isn't into very hipster guys, then you're generally out of luck..

It rains a LOT here and it's hardly ever sunny, but for the most part the temperature is pretty good. It'll be a bit humid at the beginning of the semester but once the humidity goes away, the weather is actually fairly enjoyable.

NYU doesn't give a lot of financial aid. Even if it does, there are so many loopholes that you end up paying a lot more than you originally expected.
College Sophomore 2012-12-07T01:32:58Z
The food is not bad. It just gets a bit repetitive.

I think NYC has beautiful weathers. Yes, it is true it snows in the winter and the sidewalk gets slippery, but that's just the charm of NYC winter! No complains.

This is my first year in NYU so I guess I can only say so much about it. It is pretty decent so far. I hope nothing unexpected happens next year.

There are so many great restaurants around campus that you will always find something delicious to satisfy your cravings. In fact, eating out is less expensive than having meal plans, and not to say more variety of better tasting food. That is if you know where to look. Go out there and explore!
College Sophomore 2012-12-06T19:15:40Z
The dining halls are all decent. NYU did a pretty good job in variety to make sure every major culture is represented in some way.

Once you are 21, you are in New York City and the nightlife is some of the best in the world. Because you are not 21 for all of your time at NYU, I cannot give the nightlife an A+. However, even in my first two years I managed to have a blast in New York City. Some venues are under 21 (Webster Hall) and despite the rumors NYU students DO throw their fair share of parties at the dorms (Freshman year) and at apartments later on.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
