Plenty to See, Plenty to Do – It's the city. You can travel anywhere by subway, and you can almost always find cheap stuff, no matter where you go.

Registration is quite simple, and is very fair in the sense that those that are graduating first will get first picks (since they will be leaving soon). Professors are usually available more than their office hours, and the curriculum is quite straight forward (sometimes even better than stated because the professors are nice). Workload may get heavy at times, but studying is the key to succeeding.

Really depends on where you are and what you do. If you're going to be drinking a whole lot, you better have a really nice RA or are 21 and over. If you're going to go out a lot and make a lot of noise, make sure your roommates and floormates are similar, or you'll get quite a bit of complaints ...

Good Luck – If you can find an affordable apartment to rent around campus, then you're amazing and lucky. For the most part, you will need to go a little further to find cheaper housing, and even then you will still have trouble. Best bet is to find an apartment with at least one or two others.

Still My First Choice School – I recently finished my freshman year at NYU and it is still my number one school. I applied ED because I loved everything about NYU when I was looking at and researching the school and attending NYU is even better than I could have imagined. I have had some great classes, met some amazing people, and have had some of the most fun experiences in my favorite city. At NYU and in NYC there are always things to do and anyone and everyone can find something that interests them. There are great museums (MOMA, the Met, Museum of Natural History, Guggenheim), Broadway shows, excellent parks, cute shops, quirky coffee shops, amazing restaurants with all types of foods, and big sporting events (Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets, Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, Red Bulls). One of the only things that I, and most students, have a problem with is the cost of attending.

Guests in Dorms – In the dorms, signing guests in and out is pretty strict. Unlike other schools where guests can come and go as they please as long as they are with someone that has access to a given dorm, guests at NYU have to be signed in and out with campus security. Every dorm has a security guard 24 hours a day stationed at the entrance. All guests can only be signed in by a resident of that specific dorm and must hand in a picture ID when the enter. When they are ready to leave they must be signed out by that same resident that signed them in. This guest signing in and out process is only needed for people, students or otherwise, that are not dorming at any of NYU's residence halls. In other words, if you dorm at any of NYU's dorms, you have access to any of NYU's dorms.

NYU has been an amazing experience so far. I'm glad I came because I never liked the idea of a campus-like college. Here, it's like you're thrown into the world. The facilities are great. The variety of things to do and the way to get to them are excellent and there are so many opportunities for employment. However, that also means the community isn't as strong, the price can burn a hole from your wallet right through to your future bank accounts, and the girls will not be able to stop shopping.

Almost Nonexistent – Greek life at NYU is about as popular as athletics. Although I knew an unusual amount of students that were Greek my freshman year, most students prefer to avoid Greek life altogether. I feel like some people would associate our lack of Greek life as a lack of community among the students, but I feel like most students just prefer to make their own fun. There are tons of great social opportunities at NYU, and in New York City in general, so you don't need Greek events to have fun.

Besides the variety of public transportation NYC offers, NYU provides their own transportation method which consists of trolleys and buses. They run most in the morning and mid afternoon. During finals time, they even run direction from the library for those who study late but want to be safe. For late nights, NYU offers safe ride that provide individual transportation at any time from dorm to dorm.

The Streets Feel the Weight of Traffic – With the enormous amount of people living the Greater New York Metropolitan area, the City is designed to have public transit more accessible. While there are parking lots for people visiting or commuting from outside Manhattan, it is more common to see people traveling by public transit.

The Epitome of a Melting Pot – NYU is a true embodiment a cornucopia of racial and cultural diversity. The university follows the example set forth by the great city it finds itself in by accepting students not only from all over the 50 states but from around the world. The fusion of the multitude of student identities creates a very welcoming environment of diversity and liberates students to feel that they can express themselves freely.

Health & Safety:
NYU probably has some of the best security. While you are in the city, the area is the safest in NYC. There is a NYPD hub on the same street as the library, and there are people usually on the streets at any time of the night. If all else fails you can always cab it back to your dorm. NYU also provides safe ride that takes you from any place on campus to another so that too is another great resource. There are security guards at every NYU building, and emergency buttons scattered along the city.

The education is fairly decent. The only really problem is that class sizes are so large. Most classes have 60 people at least, and some of large classes are upwards of 200. This makes it very difficult to have a personal relationship with the professor. Also the NYU is very strict when it comes to its writing. Professors really stress you to write well written papers in any class, and failure to have proper sentence structure etc can lead to serious deductions. On the plus side the university does provide its students with a writing center that reviews papers but it is very busy during finals week.

None Equal – NYU is in such a key location. Manhattan allows any prospective student a dearth of resources you will not find at any other university not in NY. The internships, jobs, and activities are endless. The level of cosmopolitanism that manifests itself is overt and makes the experience in the city unlike anything I have ever seen. NYU tuition is a arm and a leg, but you can see that the money is being spent on expanding the school's presence. Optimal facilities, a bevy of academic options, and student activities are all a key part of what makes NYU great.

Plenty of places to eat through the vast campus via dining halls; however, they can get quite tiring after eating it for a entire school year. Dining plans aren't cheap either. They are highly convenient, especially if you do not have the time to cook or money to spend on the expensive cuisine in the city.

There are plenty of computer labs equipped with the newest macs and personal computers for use. You are allotted a grant at the begging of each semester which allows you to freely print more than enough through out the semester. Wifi is generally is most of the buildings and speed is optimal. While owning a laptop and printer aren't necessary, they are highly convenient and probably will save you some stress.

NY Is Paragon – NY is the mecca for social life. A vast variety of activities are at your footsteps to partake in. Clubs and bars inhabit every corner of every street, each with its own distinct crowd. Transportation can be hassle if you travel by taxi or subway, but they get the job done. As an underage young adult, the best source of social nightlife are the house parties, concerts, and city events. There isn't a better place to find excitement at night!

NYU on-campus housing is quite the experience. There is a bevy of options as far as dorms, and each has its pros and cons. Dining Halls are usually apart of the dorm, so food is easily accessible. Most are located centrally around the campus, so travel time to-and-from class is optimal. The student body is very social, so if you choose to be outgoing, making friends is of ease. The negatives are insanely high housing prices which easily exceed what a student could find off-campus and for less space too! The housing lottery/ process is optimal, generally allowing for you to get what you prefer. All in all, housing is recommended for fr/ sophomore year for growth/ comfort, but the upperclassmen years may be best spent off-campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
