There are tons of different kinds of people, not only racial diversity, but sexual, cultural and religious diveristy. The school is full of liberal students, but that's really the only thing that really holds as a huge majority.

We have computer labs and they're great with awesome Mac computers that can accomplish a lot. But because everyone has laptops the computers are rarely used except for printing. The university has WiFi that is great.

Profs Help Artistically – I'm in the acting program at NYU. These professors help us learn and grow but also keep you focused on being an artist in any field. They also will take personal interest in you if you get to know them personally. They take extra time to help you, because they genuinely want you to succeed.

Not Too Bad – It gets cold within a month or 2, but its totally bearable. When it snows, it's not too much, and when it's sunny out, you can get a beautiful view, if you're in the right place. Only thin is when it rains, it's kind of dreary, but what else would you expect when you're in a giant city?

Not Much – it's there. there's no discrimination towards greeks or non-greeks. they have as much fun as we do.they dont really affect the campus life at all.

some are great, some are good, some aren't so good. For the most part it's pretty decent all around except for Weinstein.. it's a dungeon.

Great Professors.. If You Search. As with most schools there boring teachers and some who don't explain well but a majority of the professors are very helpful and knowledgeable.

Not Sure – I'm not involved in the drug scene at my school nor do I even know anything about it.

Not Sure – I can't fairly say much about Greek life as I haven't attempted to join a sorority/fraternity or research on it at my school.

New York City Is Your Campus – You choose this school because the City is your campus, with its numerous museums, shops, restaurants and the corresponding opportunities to meet new people.

Despite Being a Division III School.. Despite being a Division III School (besides fencing, DIV I), NYU has a moderately strong athletic presence in track, volleyball, wrestling, and swimming

As a commuter I wouldn't know exactly how it is, but quality wise everyone loves 3rd North and Founders. You can find out for yourself at http://nyuhousing.wikispaces.com/ <-- Upperclassmen options are listed too

off campus housing is hard to find because new york city is expensive. ...
College Junior 2011-09-28T02:37:35Z
but sometimes the food choices get repetitive. However, the quality of the food is way better than I expected. I came to NYU with the idea that the dining hall food was going to be nasty and inedible, but was pleasantly surprised. I love my dining hall even if people diss Rubin since it's rarely crowded which is a PLUS (except on Steak Nights) and I always find something new and interesting to eat there. So if you're looking for a nice, quiet place to eat and socialize, Rubin is your best bet. If not, go to more crowded dining halls like Weinstein, Palladium, or Kimmel. I also like Hayden since they offer vegetarian and vegan options which is so helpful since I don't have to ask the chefs/workers there about what the food is and what's in it because I'm vegetarian.
I'd say that the dining dollars would be the most effective if used for coffee/drinks at Starbuck's located at Faye's. It's near the center of "campus." The good thing: you can use your dining dollars there. The bad things: always seems to be crowded, long lines, and you have to wait, and there's like 20 other people waiting to get their drink too. But overall, NYU has a good menu.

There is ALWAYS something to do in NYC. You could not ask for a better city to live and study in. Since NYU technically does not have a campus, you have to remember that you're in New York City the moment you step out your residence hall. I have explored several places around the city and have never ran out of places to explore; the only bad thing is that there's not enough time for adventures because homework exists at NYU (I'm not kidding).

Labs Are Not All Equal and They Get Crowded – Choose wisely where you want to study on school computers. While a lot of campus is equipped with fairly new Apple computers, not all the Windows softwares seem to be as up to date. NYU's wireless network is pretty reliable and as the school is setting up all dorms with wireless, working from home is getting easier every day. But if you need to go print something in the morning as all students get $50 of free printing per semester at the school, go early as the lines get very long. The best way to start avoiding the line is to install the software that allows you to send a document from your own personal computer to print on a school printer.

It's Impossible to Be Bored – NYU can be an overwhelming school by its size and impenetrable administration sometimes but it is located at one of the hot spots of Manhattan. The Great White Way theaters might be a few stops away but here is where local shops are the friendliest, where the history of a grittier and rougher Manhattan can be found and where the skyscrapers aren't blocking all the sunlight. It's a little expensive but with the right strategy, after no time, you'll find there's no need to go very much further to find all that you need. And if you do decide to go out and explore beyond Greenwich Village, the West 4th subway station leads pretty much anywhere.

Nice Balance Between the Practical and Theoretical – The broadcast journalism major is very intense and, as you take more advanced classes, gets very hands-on. Journalism is not a subject best learned in books so the only option is to go out and report. NYU always gets notice of very attractive internship opportunities in the prestigious news outlets based in New York, which is ideal because they will be key for anyone trying to stay and work in the city after graduation. Becoming a journalism major also means you are required to double major which is nice because you come out with a concentration for your reporting but also because it forces to think about other things than reporting as it's easy to forget about everything else if you have a story to complete.
The dramatic literature major is very different. There are less requirements and the design of the major becomes more personal. I tried to keep textual analysis classes and film analysis classes balanced because I thought it would give me a wider range but if theater practice is something you want to try, that's possible also. It's not a very big department so it's easy to find familiar faces.

A melting pot of cultures – New York University is in the heart of one of the most diverse neighborhoods in New York City; Soho. Soho is also called apart of The village where being true to you is key. In Soho there are dozens, if not hundreds of shops dedicated to offering retail therapy. Many of these shops offer student discounts, which is something I find extremely helpful. The city has opportunities for New Yorkers and non-New Yorkers to meet different people from different cultures, try different foods, and take part in different festivals. It is a very healthy environment.

Financial as a Freshman – As a freshman, I didn't have much trouble with my financial aid. My only advice is to get it done as early as possible! However, both the financial aid office and the bursar's offic are willing to work with you to help you pay your bill. I only wish it weren't so expensive!

New York City! I mostly chose this school for its location. Living in the East Village in New York City is amazing! Plus, all my classes have turned out to be super fun (although hard) and the dining hall food and the dorms are pretty nice too.

There are a lot of strange people here. I have yet to find a group of individuals that are like me: someone who tries to be funny and point out the obvious when no one else wants to.

A lot of people are into drugs, but not as much as in other cities because there is more to do, and because school is very arduous here.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
