NYU is full of LGBT and ally students. The University supports them well with an active LGBT center that works with other campus organizations to facilitate programs like Safe Zone training. LGBT students are involved in all aspects of NYU, from politics and business to theatre and sports, and the majority of the student body is open and accepting.
NYU students love to protest. Whether it's over war, hunger in a foreign country, or the University president's policies, NYU students will be there in Washington Square Park or in front of a campus building with signs and megaphones.
With tuition as high as NYU's, quite a few students come from wealthy families, and those families support them generously while they study. Alongside a large affluent population, there are first generation college students and people putting themselves through school. NYU represents the whole range of socioeconomic possibilities, but the average student is upper-middle class.
Most Common Religions
In a city like New York, you can find any religion you can imagine. Most students on campus claim to be Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Hindu.
Minority Clubs on Campus
The minority clubs at NYU are proud organizations. From Afghan to Vietnamese and everything in between, there is a student group for every culture and country at NYU. Unlike high school, where people joined these clubs just to get in to college, all members genuinely want to be in the clubs.
