There is the MTA subway and plenty of buses, plus yellow cabs. Transportation is not an issue.

The possibilities are limitless. You are situated in the heart of NYC, so there are so many varieties of restaurants you can choose from.

The instructors here at very valuable to the learning process. They each bring their own experiences and help us learn in a way that's more applicable to the industry. The only downside is that they have limited office hours to meet, but that doesn't mean they aren't willing to try.

Professors are exceptionally well versed in their fields, however, they often seem disinterested in the class/level of ability of students in the classroom. Professors are also often unaccessible outside of the classroom for help or office hours.

It's great to be in the heart of the city and have all of its resources at your fingertips. However, the university itself has been highly disappointing. It's hard to build relationships with professors and receive the necessary help to succeed.

Facilities are sub par and staff is often unapproachable.

There is such a wide-selection of majors, and at Gallatin you can "create" your own major. However, you need to be very articulate, and know what direction you're going to be headed.
College Sophomore 2012-09-23T17:55:08Z
It's pretty nonexistent (unless you go to the gym). You wouldn't see people training for the team on a regular basis because there isn't that type of facility available -such as football fields; that's one thing you have to sacrifice when you're living in the city.
College Sophomore 2012-09-23T17:53:43Z
People don't really talk about the Greek life, and there isn't a huge tradition of getting into a fraternity or sorority. However, there is still a wide selection, and people (in frats/sororities) are very friendly and inviting.

There's always something, even on weekdays, if you ask or know the right people. We're never short on nightlife; it's NYC.

despite what some people might say, NYU so has a "campus." we dominate the entire washington square park area. there is so much to do here and it's just a great place to be in.
College Junior 2012-09-21T15:35:26Z
So much to do! You're in a young, hip neighborhood in the greatest city in the world. Enough said.

The food is pretty good (for a dining hall) and there are plenty of choices. Most people end up getting off the meal plan after their freshmen year though, because there are plenty of more affordable and better tasting food options in the city.
College Junior 2012-09-21T15:31:05Z
NYU is very different from the traditional college experience, but I really love it here. It is harder to make friends and there isn't such a sense of "school spirit," but having the city as your campus is priceless.

I am in stern for finance. Stern has a reputation of being very pretentious and cutthroat but I find that to be misleading. Everyone is very ambitious but usually helpful. Academically other than Harvard, Yale, Penn, and Princeton, NYU Stern is the best place for finance. The university has incredible resources for jobs and internships and an incredible number of people work while at school

Health & Safety:
Health center is fairly helpful and public safety at some of the dorms can be aloverbearing sometimes. You have to keep in mind that nyu doesnt have a campus so there will be strangers, non college people, homeless people around. But with that said, because there are so many people, the streets are safe at any time in the night
College Junior 2012-09-20T15:30:51Z
Certain schools and majors have a great reputation, but spending money on some of the more random majors is a waste. For example, I believe that spending this much tuition is valuable if you want to go to Tisch, Stern, do a math, cognitive science, or philosophy major.

Even though some fractions of campus is spread out in the city, most of the campus is close to Washington Square Park. I walked to school every day

IF - and I do mean IF there is Greek life at this school...it's very well hidden
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-17T22:13:08Z
It Exists? honestly I don't know too much about greek life at NYU. I know we have it, I know there's a gay frat, but that's about it. It's not very prevalent, but it's here.
College Senior 2012-09-17T21:22:44Z
The subway is my preferred method; it's cheap, it gets you very close, if not at your actual destination. It also runs every 5 minutes or so, so very convenient indeed. However, it tend to get crowded, so expect to stand through your short journey. It can get pretty stuffy at the station, but the cars themselves are air-conditioned. The bus is my second option, cheap as well, but if there's traffic, then it backfires. Taxis can get you anywhere fast, but they're more pricey. YOU'RE IN THE CITY! It's very likely that your destination is not very far after all, so take a walk, ride your bike. It's free and healthy!

Campus Dining is quite good. There are at least seven dining halls with a variety of healthy foods and eating in general. The quality of the food is very good. Each dining hall has something special to offer.
There are several meal plan options with flexible dollars and campus cash possibliities.

Public transportation is a big deal in New York City. It can be complicated and also easy to manage once studied a bit. Since NYU is located in the city, students have a variety of transportation modes- campus shuttle, local buses, and mass transit subway. Each has its own costs (excluding NYU shuttle), conveniences.
College Senior 2012-09-16T03:19:03Z
There is ALWAYS something to do in the city, unless it's Sunday at 11pm, at which point the only option is to go on a walking tour with friends. If you just walk outside your dorm room, you will find something to do.

It can be difficult to find a good apartment and good roommates. The best things is to go into apartment looking with roommates in mind or with a broker.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
