Computer Review – they are fairly fast but there needs to be more computers in this university. sometimes people lose the work they were doing because they automatically shut up but as of now they are getting replaced so this situation should get fixed

It's big to a cetain extent, but due to the fact that most sports are indoors, sport at NYU aren't as popular as they could be in there were more athletic facilities outdoors, especially in the summer. On a plus side, it's always cool inside, and the free pizza, and T-shirts during sports ralley don't hurt.

nyu stern is really professional. you can see students wearing suits in every corners. everybody is talking about internships, stocks or other business stuffs.

Not Strict – NYU Stern is pretty competitive, but it's not as competitive as other universities like Uchicago. School doesn't care students' social life

There are lots of options but most of them are costly. The locations can vary. A big factor in deciding where to live off campus is proximity to campus and environment. The school does not help students find off-campus housing.

Stern students have free printing so that's nice. The computers are new-looking and easy to use. They also have choices between Macbooks and PCs. Depending on where you live, you might want to have your own personal printer though.

It is wonderful. Everyone thinks you're uptight and emotionless. The workload is hard but the curriculum and internship/job opportunities are well-organized and numerous, respectively.

It's Pretty Good. I've had a lot of good times for sure but there are times where it's only been okay or bad. It's hard to meet new people because after freshman year, people aren't as willing and you'll have close friends in freshman year, but after, it's hard to keep in touch or they transfer or they're too far. There's many issues so it can be hard, but it's also fun.

Very Diverse – Most people are very liberal and accepting of anything. There's also a lot of different races, but some issues are that people of the same race tend to hang out together. That is the one thing I think people are most closed off about. If they see a group of whites/blacks/asians, and you're not pat of that race, it can be intimidating to approach them and be friends with them.

Good but Sometimes Pricey – There's a lot of good places to eat but they can get pricey. Restaurants by Kimmel and Bobst are pretty good and relatively cheap but once you go out like to Union Square or more uptown, things can get pricier.

Health & Safety:
Pretty Safe – Lots of security in buildings but not much outside. Only the buildings are limited to students so anyone can walk through the campus.

The library is open until late and there is always room to study there. The reserve proposes 2hours loans of the books used in courses, which is great if you don't have a book for whatever reason.

Now it's winter so it's been very cold since December. It also snowed a lot so one day classes were totally cancelled. It is also not the best thing to do to walk in the streets now because it is slippery and the melted snow make huge puddles which you should avoid walking into. But when it's not snowing you generally can see the sun somewhere in the clouds, and at any rate, you're in nyc so you can always enjoy your days even if it's bad weather!

Shuttle Buses – There are shuttle buses running for NYU students from their dorms to campus. They run pretty frequently, so you can take them whenever you don't feel like walking or if it's bad weather. The one thing is that you cannot predict NY's traffic. Other than that it is a very convenient transportation.

It Is NYC – I have just arrived and am agreeably overwhelmed by the number of events of all sorts, in and outside of the university: cultural, sports, career, volunteer, there is something for everyone. The people are very helpful, open and friendly, they especially talk to each other a lot even if they do not know the person. There are many shops and people so walking to campus is always a pleasure, we never get bored here.

Close to subway. Provides shuttle bus for faraway dorms.

Process Was Average – The process was fine and the financial aid staff are very helpful. Definitely suggest calling or better yet visiting the financial aid office because they will answer all your questions and give you different pointers to look out for. However in the end i received very little in financial aid.

Possible Free Ride for Dorms! The cost is expensive just like any other school. But they offer RA positions which will cover room and board and meal plans! (if chosen as the RA after the "workshop training").

Endless Choices of Delicious Affordable Food – NYU cafeteria at Kimmel Center is great. you have just about everything to choose from: sushi to pizza, salad to stir fries etc. But what's even better is that we're surrounded by restaurants all around, since its NYC after all. There is literally just about every cuisine out there and many affordable choices for students. Many of the restaurants also take part in the NYU flex dollars, so it's great.

You never hear about sport here, unless something funny happens - which it almost never does.

Guys & Girls:
The wayfarers are a must at NYU. If you are the type to feel the need to fit in, then here at NYU, you are pretty much required to know how to look like you dumped a couple of hundred dollars on your outfit that you put together for your Monday 8am. I mean designer labels are not a luxury but rather a means of survival here. The girls are absolutely gorgeous. And, in a way, they have to be, since among the small number of guys that do end up in non-business courses, there are two very prominent categories: gay guys and the World of Warcraft-playing kind (I'm generalizing here.) So, if you are an at least somewhat cute-looking pal, with a minimal amount of effort, your chances of getting laid shouldn't be all that low at NYU.

NYU is notorious for not providing adequate scholarships, and they are especially frugal with academic scholarships. Unfortunately, it also happens to be one of the most expensive Universities in the nation. Because the school population is so large, it often takes a painstakingly long time to resolve problems with financial aid.

Internships/Opportunities of a Lifetime – NYU is in the heart of New York City, and therefore there are internship/opportunities available with some of the top organizations in the world. There is something for everyone, but especially relevant for those attempting to get into arts/entertainment industry, business (wallstreet), and medicine.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
