Wish It Was More Important – Most NYU students don't care about athletics. This is a damn shame.

Food's OK if you are on the meal plan. mostly convenient. A lot of delicious NYU off campus options though.

Finance Major – With Wall Street so close, it's getting internships and hands-on experiences.

Lots to Do – NYU has been great to me. Never a dull moment. There is no campus bubble here and that helps me feel connected to the real world, after college.

Most Diverse Place on Earth – Centered in Greenwich Village in downtown Manhattan, NYU is already situated in one of the most diverse, lively, liberal places in the country. The student body reflects that 100%.

Stern's Business Curriculum – The atmosphere at NYU Stern is very professional. Beginning with a curriculum designed to first introduce basic business concepts and ending in your more specialized major, you certainly learn a lot about the financial world. Professors are very approachable but you have to seek them out during office hours. Classes are a little cutthroat since all grades are assigned on a stern curve.

Academic Life Merges With the City – Don;t look for a typical campus, (although Washington Square Park is quite beautiful), NYU is just what you would expect - living and learning in a big city. Fortunately, there are so many options for entertainment and relaxation beyond the confines of campus - if you can afford them. NYU forces students to grow up fast and learn to depend on themselves, and has a way of weeding out those who belong in a smaller, contained educational environment.

Getting to Class – The major mode of transportation are your own feet. Fortunately, the "campus" is walkable. On bad weather days the NYU bus service can be used if you are near their route. Subways are also an option depending on your location.

Music Business – The Music Bus program has, so far, been more music intensive than business related. The business classes really don't begin until the Sophomore year. Freshman take introductory courses only. The program is small, only accepting around 35 applicants per year. The collegium course brings suprisingly high profile speakers who discuss a variety of topics.

Too Much to Do – There is always something happening around nyu everyday. Someti es there are too many options you don't know what to do first. Even if you venture to other parts of the city, there's museums, broadway shows, historical sites and cool clubs and resturants.

Labs Are Mostly Open – I've only ever been to one lab (which I still go to) and there's usually a few seats always open. When it comes to peak hours or finals, I wouldn't bet on trying to go, but other than that they're really useful.

Health & Safety:
Hard to Say – For the most part, I think NYU is a fairly safe school. Since there isn't really any campus, safety doesn't exactly come to mind when thinking of NYU, but in general I feel safe being in the city.

Good for the Most Part – I chose NYU mainly because it was one of the only schools that actually has a major for photography. I was put into the Liberal Studies Program, which basically focuses on art history and philosophy; at the moment I'm trying to transfer into the arts school. So far most of my teachers have been very exceptional; they're approachable, knowledgeable, and always have a spare minute.

I think that the dorms at NYU are good compared to most other schools. The great thing about the dorms is that there are no communal bathrooms like at other schools. Some of the rooms are small so you may feel a bit close to your roommate more than you would like, but it's not too bad. Some of the dorms do not have air conditioning but it was only bad for the first few weeks of the fall semester and then it was good for the rest of the year.

International Business and Marketing – I'm in Stern. I'd say that so far everything is great. The workload is not too bad. You just have to make sure you don't procrastinate and you should be fine. The curriculum is good the way that it is planned out. There are core business classes that everyone is required to take, and in my opinion I believe that these classes are great in helping you explore the different majors that the school offers, so that you are able to decide what you want as your intended major. The professors I've had so far are all extremely willing to help their students. I even had a professor who would go as far as having office hours on weekends to help his students do their best.

No one cares about sports. Well some do. There's Tear It Up events and they give our free good.

There are multiple schools with a wide range of majors from business to film to dancing, there is something for everyone. You really have to put in the effort yourself. No one is going to hold your hand AT ALL. Some majors are better than others at NYU, ie business.

Barely Noticeable – Weather doesn't really affect school much. Sometimes it rains a lot, and last winter classes were cancelled because of snow.

Stern Sets You up – Stern prepares programs to help develop leadership, expand views etc. Freshman year they grouped us into cohorts of 60 and invited guest speakers and such to provide insights on various topics. There are often representatives from banks coming for presentation events to help you explore a firm/field.

Always Willing to Help – Go to their office hours, they're always willing to help

Love the Dorms – The freshman dorms are pretty standard, but all the upperclassmen dorms are apartment style and (mostly) beautiful. I've heard some aren't great, but I've lived in two and been in two others, and they were all pretty great.

Some Great Profs, Others Not So Much – I've had a few helpful professors so far, and most that I've had any cause to communicate with have been great, but it only takes a few bad apples to ruin the bunch. I've had professors who cared more about their research than their students, which has obvious negative effects, and those who were just generally unhelpful/unresponsive to the need for help.
Beyond that, the city is a great place, the work never feels like too much, and the huge tuition bill goes toward having some of the most impressive facilities around. Plus, being in NYC is great for jobs and internships.

It is extremely safe on campus. The local police precinct is there and there is campus police.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
