Parties at YU absolutely suck. The only chances for decent parties are at nearby colleges (of which thankfully there are many), or the club/bar scene throughout New York City.

Guys & Girls:
Most are friendly and willing to assist 1st year students and show them around the campus.

Health & Safety:
The neighborhood surrounding the campus in the Bronx is safe and the campus itself has security that seems to do a good job of signing non-students in and out.

There are not many housing options available to the psychology-majored grad students at the campus on Morris Park, Bronx. They offer housing to med students, but those pursuing a graduate and/or doctorate level degree in Psychology are left to fend for themselves. This is especially difficult for students who are moving from other states to attend the university.

Lots of sports teams for men and women. Lots of school spirit and great game turn outs.
College Senior 2013-05-08T19:40:29Z
Very cheap convenient housing options around the campus

No diversity in religion and the majority is white, but there are many students from other countries.

The food isn't bad but there is not a lot of options. Also, the cafeteria food tends to be overpriced so you run out of money quickly if you aren't careful.

I came to Yeshiva University because it has a great pre-med program. Campus life is fun and engaging, there's a different event each night so if you want to fill your calendar it really isn't that difficult! The midtown location provides opportunity in itself to see the city and really see the dozen parades happening regularly! Classes are intriguing and the professors are only wanting to see you take your education far in life!

I received allot in financial aid, even more then I thought I would have gotten before. I set up a meeting with the person in charge of financial aid and he told me that there were many scholarships that i could apply for. When I applied for them, I got back an answer the very next day.

There are many apartments nearby the YU campus which many students live in. All are within a short walk of the campus and they are good priced for Manhattan. The neighborhood is safe during the day but I would not recommend going far from the main campus.

Its a small campus but the workout room and track are great. Its to cramped in for my taste but with everything close together its easy to get to classes on time.

The professors at YU are great! However, there is not much variety in the classes and many of the fields are very limited. The double workload can at times be stressful, but I still find time to be involved in a number of extracurricular activities each semester and work part-time.
College Senior 2013-03-25T02:54:41Z
While we do have some of the top professors in the field for some areas of study, the class variety is low and there are often only a few classes offered in any given field. Also, YU is very limited in terms of the majors you can pursue. The Jewish Studies/Bible department, however, is top notch.

While there are apartment buildings in the area around the school, the costs are high because of the location. If money isn't an issue though, off-campus housing can be convenient.

Over 90% of the population in YU is Jewish and white, although other minorities are present.

I'm majoring in English communications, and there are tons of connections and internships available for PR/journalism. The career center and academic advising are helpful.

Located in midtown Manhattan, there are tons of attractions nearby-the only problem is that I hardly have time to enjoy beacuse of work!

New York City is a huge city with everything imaginable. It is the center of the world. It has every restaurant you can think of, it has concerts every night, fun bars, broadway, museums. It has it all.

Everyone that I have met is Jewish, it is a Jewish college. However, I have met many people with different political beliefs and economic backgrounds.

The shuttles between campus and the hospitals are frequent during peak hours, but sometimes they can't accommodate all the people that need to use them and some people are left behind.

The school is like an oasis in the Bronx. For a medical school, it's primely located between 2 hospitals and very convenient for getting to the other affiliate hospitals.

The student lounge is nice now that it's moderately re-done. The gym isn't open enough and is relatively small given the number of students that use it. The library is awesome though!

Health & Safety:
I've never felt unsafe on campus. That being said, the street parking right in the middle of the campus has had several episodes of car theft where all the windows get smashed.
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-23T17:59:50Z
The on campus housing is very cheap and ok if you don't mind faulty windows, strict rules about pets, etc. Off-campus housing is markedly more expensive and not of good quality. Too far off campus, but with easy access to public transportation might put you in a sketchy neighborhood and moving to Manhattan is prohibitively expensive for most.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
