I'm in the Liberal Studies Program in London and it's wonderful. All my professors are really knowledgeable and helpful. The class sizes are small enough to participate and for the professor to know your name. My only issue is the amount of work. There's always some essay due and it's not always returned, graded by the next class. It's annoying but definitely not horrible.

I've never eaten on campus since there are a variety of cheap eats all over manhattan

Real estate in NYC is very expensive and a challenging process. the amount you pay for rent and the amount you get for space is not proportional; however, for a certain amount of time, it might be worth it to experience living in NyC

NYU is very diverse considering its location; however depending on the school you attend/program, it might be slightly diverse than what you would expect.

Sometimes there are only a few available computers for printing. Also the connection to log on to the computer takes 5minutes which is very slow.

I'm an Anthropology major and the professors in this department are great! Lots of them have a ton of fieldwork and research experience in their various areas and are all very enthusiastic about teaching and supporting the students. The really do enjoy you coming into office hours for any conversation. The workload isn't too bad, a lot of writing, but if you enjoy the subject it is a fun assignment.

No one drives at NYU. Public transportation is much easier in the city so Parking is not an issue that is on the admins minds.

Seeing as this is New York City, the housing turnover is extremely fast, and new places to rent are constantly going on the market. That being said there are a ton of choices, however, one really needs to be educated on the process to get a good deal. Broker fees can get expensive, and living really close to campus can also hike up costs. If you do your research and look ahead of time, however, off campus housing and freedom that comes with it can be rewarding.

The freshman dorms have a great community and usually amazing RAs. The upperclassmen dorms all are apartment style, which is great, however, they tend to get nicer the further you are from campus. Also, because it is in New York City, dorming, and off campus housing also, are very expensive.

It's New York City. You really could get anything, (mostly) anytime, anywhere. Just google it.

I applied to LSP, and if I had another chance I probably would have applied directly to Steinhardt's Media, Culture, and Communications program, as I would like to pursue a career in Public Relations. However, I have nothing against LSP, and I adore my Writing class and all of my professors. It is due to them that I am waiting to transfer my program.

I'm in the Liberal Studies Program-- It was opened up for application this year and I chose to apply. How difficult your courses are or how well your professors do their jobs depends entirely on which professors you take. Some students in LSP have barely any work, and don't learn much. Some, however, like myself, have professors that teach you a ton, but don't necessarily hand out good grades. You have to really work for your grade. The workload varies by professor... Use Rate My Professor and actually read the reviews while registering for classes.

The process to getting into the Business program at NYU was pretty easy. Right from the start you must understand that NYU has high expectations for the students it accepts, so I knew I had the GPA so I filled out the application and they had everything set to go within 4 weeks. It was an easy process filling out paper work and creating a schedule. My advisers were always in contact and everything was so organized.

NYU is not to diverse, it has a small percentage of African American and mixed but the scenery of the surrounding areas of NYC are very mixed.
College Senior 2012-11-07T05:04:42Z
I am new to the school but very familiar with the New York area, People are more focused in enjoying the scenery of NYC and staying in the books then doing drugs or peer pressuring somebody into using drugs. NYU has a great reputation and I'm sure would never want to see it go down over people being into drugs or abusing alcohol.

It's hard to have a huge campus life in such an urban area. there's no "quad", really, unless you count Washington Square Park, which also has a lot of tourists. There are also a lot of commuters. I think the university puts in a good effort to create a community, but it's hard in a big city like New York.

As a native New Yorker, I absolutely love our 4 seasons here! There's a wonderful balance of the temperatures throughout the year and it's comforting knowing that you'll be able to feel all of the temperatures in a year. Word of advice though, do NOT come here if you can't tolerate the cold because it's not uncommon for it to get below freezing here. It's all a personal choice.

I am fairly satisfied with my program (English). If I could do it all over again, I would because I enjoy my classes. I would loved to have a career in television or public relations, with a backup career as a teacher. However, I am concerned about what I will do for a job after college since many high-paying careers associated with English degrees require a degree at the MA level, at least, and I need to support myself until I acquire that degree.

I'm a student in College of Arts and Science as a prospective English major. Since I have no declared, I don't have an official English advisor. However, the advisor that I do have tries her hardest to prepare me for my major, which is helpful. The workload for an English major is pretty heavy, as you can probably imagine, since there is a lot of assigned reading and a lots of papers due frequently. The internship opportunities provided for English majors are very exciting and seem to touch upon all of the skills that one learns when pursing a BA in English instead of just focusing on the FALLACY that anyone studying English wants to teach or be a writer.

I have received an insufficient amount of aid and have found myself needing to take out loans in order to just barely cover tuition. I have recently discovered the aid appeal process at my school but even discovering that was like pulling tooth and nail -- they seem to like to keep the appeal process a secret which is NOT beneficial for students who actually need the aid. Do better, NYU. You have the funds, do something beneficial with them.

Campus strictness depends on the employees. Some public safety officers will be more lenient and some residence assistants will overlook small disturbances. However, drug use and underage alcohol consumption will not be tolerated and you will get written up if caught.

Because of the urban environment there is no possibly way to keep a car in the city. However, public transit options are widespread and very convenient for the average student. Also, NYU has it's own buses which travel to the farther residence halls and are very convenient.

NYU doesn't have the traditional sport atmosphere of a state school. For example, there is no football and sports are almost never talked about. However, if you are interested in a certain sport there a lot of opportunities to get involved and watch the games, and we also have a lot of really unique sports like fencing which we are good at. Also, there are a lot of sports clubs here that offer tons of unique sports.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
