Tips to Succeed
- Always speak up when you feel you have been graded unfairly. All grades are subject to change.
- Ask your professors for help-they don't bite. Most of them are more than willing to help students outside of class.
- Come with an open mind, and you'll make some amazing friends from all over the world.
- Don't be shy. The only way you can make friends is if you go to all the fun events and make yourself known to everyone else.
- Explore both the city and the campus! There are so many opportunities for free shows, information about various clubs, and food all over campus, but you've got to look for it.
- Go to class. It really does help even if you aren't paying total attention; it is good to be there and make yourself present.
- Never willingly sign up for an 8 a.m. class-you'll probably oversleep at least once.
- See the city, go to class, and don't take too many reading-intensive classes at once. The main reason students don't like NYU or they transfer is because they had unrealistic expectations that were not met. Experience NYU for what it is and not what you expect it to be.
