Internship for Nurses – A typical internship for nurses should include hand-on activities and stringent instructions. Participants should be paid at least 8 dollars and be committed at least 25 hours per week. Some responsibilities include managing your time, looking after your patient meticulously, and being patient and understanding to your patients.

There are four visible seasons in the Northeast, the mildest being Spring, but this year it was quite cold throughout, and when it did get warm, it was humid and often rainy. Winters tend to be very, very cold, but because of global warming, we had quite a warm winter. I think it snowed once, and it didn't stick to the ground. The summer weather at the beginning of the school year is really unbearable with the humidity making the high temperatures feel even higher. Seeing as I'm from the Northeast though, I don't expect anything else, so the weather was as expected.

Incredibly Diverse – Students come from nearly every country on the globe and what seems like every state of America. I'm from the Northeast of the US but many of my friends are from California, one is from Turkey, another is from China, quite a few from England as well.

Almost Everybody Drinks – Drugs and marijuana are very easy to find, though not everybody participates in these activities. On the other hand, it seems that almost every student, with exceptions, of course, drinks alcohol as fake ID's are so easy to come by and there are a lot of bars that don't card minors. Smoking cigarettes is like a competitive sport at NYU as well.

Nobody Drives Cars. If you are a college student living on campus in New York City, you don't need a car. And if you drive one, you're stupid, and you aren't going to get anywhere faster than it would take to walk.

Lots of Options – There are NYU buses that will take you to the far ends of campus for free. Otherwise, it's only a couple blocks to everything else. As for traveling around the city, you can take the subway literally everywhere. There are also trains that go farther into the boroughs that leave from Grand Central. If you want to go on an even farther trip there are a *bunch* of bus companies that will take you (megabus is really cheap.)

Guys & Girls:
Heterosexual Ladies, Be Warned. The stereotypes are true. NYU's girl/boy ratio is 60/40 and a good percentage of those boys are gay. Nothing wrong with that though, they make great friends! If you're looking for a significant other though, you can usually find someone who's pretty good looking and intelligent/interesting at school. If not, let's be real, you're living in New York City; go out and find someone.

The process itself is pretty smooth and easy to navigate. Unfortunately, it is so expensive that the amounts you receive very well may not be enough.
College Sophomore 2012-05-13T21:20:10Z
So Much – There are obviously a bunch of things to do when you are in the middle of New York City, but there are also a lot of things that you can do through clubs in the school. Overall there is just so much to do you are in New York City after all!

I am not involved with Greek Life, but they are very active. Not extremely big, but as I said very involved and host a lot of activities.

NYU does have athletic teams, but they are there for those who are really looking for sports and want to participate. NYU isn't a typical college and sports and athletics are not a huge part of NYU life.
College Senior 2012-05-11T02:57:29Z
Walk, Subway or Taxis – Nothing much to say, you will be walking (which is great in the city) taking the subway to every part of the five boroughs and if you can afford it be hailing cabs.

It All Depends on the Program – It really all depends on the program you are in at NYU. It is such a big university that you cannot compare the different colleges. My personal experience shows me that the NYU Economics and Politics program have great professors who are part of the leading faculty worldwide. It is true that the first few core classes are mainly huge lecture however as you progress in your major the class sizes reduce considerably. I am currently taking two politics classes where we are no more than 25 students. Even professors who teach the large lectures are always willing to know the students more and meet with them. If a student wants to have close relations with his professors he has to be the one to step up. The professor will never make the first move. The LSP program is a really interesting part of NYU. The overall program is great for students who want to get a well rounded knowledge of cultural, philosophical history. Most of the things I've learned in LSP classes have helped me with my politics classes. This program is perfect for students who want to be best friends with their professor (go out for coffee, explore the city, just hand out and even drinks). The classes are small and the professors are always excited to become best friends with their students (plus many of them either live on campus or not far away). I personally am still in touch with an LSP professor I had for three semesters and meet her up regularly to get drinks and talk about almost everything. The main issue you can have in LSP is that because of the large amount of professors they have to sometimes take some who are not great. It can be hard to have a professor who doesn't keep you interested in those classes or sometimes seems to not know what they cover however at the end of the day there are a majority of great professors and by the time you get here you will know who to take (ratemyprofessor, Facebook and Friends).

Use the Subways – but they do have student transportation which i haven't used
College Senior 2012-05-10T17:23:10Z
Love the City – can't say much more than that...everything is close and no need for a car!
College Senior 2012-05-10T17:18:28Z
Great School – love it and will continue to go there for the next 2 yrs
College Senior 2012-05-10T17:17:30Z
It's Really Cold in the Winter – hated the winter last year...it was the worst in ny history for a long time. transportation is always great though. gotta bundle up!

Not Enough Room – the brittany freshman dorm was great..enough closest space and beautiful big window the 2nd st was ridiculous...one small hotel size (i'm not joking) closest for 2 people! awful!
College Senior 2012-05-10T17:11:46Z
Not Enough – for the overall admission, i didn't receive very much at all considering my mom is single w/no child support.

NYU does not have a large endowment and therefore cannot give out large scholarships to a large portion of the student body. Despite this the financial aid office is very helpful and friendly.
Recent Alumnus 2012-05-09T01:18:57Z
NYU provides very good bus service throughout campus (which is spread out throughout Manhattan).

MUST BE 21 TO HAVE FUN – NYU is a very fun place to go to school... if you are 21+. Otherwise, there isn't much to do. The parties are scarce and the school events are even scarcer. If you are looking for a place to party, then you are looking in the wrong place.
College Senior 2012-05-06T20:11:40Z
Good, but Crowded – The facilities can be a hit or miss at times, but by and large are well maintained and modern. However, it's a large university -- it's going to be crowded, especially during exams.
College Senior 2012-05-06T20:10:33Z
You're in the City. This is New York City. If you can't find something for you, it's probably just not mean to be.
College Senior 2012-05-06T14:55:03Z
The Fun Is Never Ending – New York CIty is a huge city, with loads to do. There are clubs and bars for people who like to party, museums and galleries for people who like the arts, and the Yankees and Knicks for people who like sports. What more can you ask for. And, don't forget Broadway. It is truly the best city ever!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
