What is your overall opinion of this school?

My school, New York Institute of Technology, is a phenomenal institution that offers a variety of opportunities for students to succeed. With a multitude of internship programs, sports, extracurriculars, and Greek life students never fail to find something that they are interested in. As a biology major, I am introduced to a variety of challenging concepts that are often difficult to grasp. However, the professors never fail to be available to students who may need extra help. Academics is vital in a world that focuses on a degree in order to obtain a job. NYIT makes it challenging yet possible to earn this achievement as long as the student puts their mind to it. Socially, Greek life is offered yet is not required to get the latest news on the social events on campus. My school is my safe-haven and somewhere where I can go to study or be with my friends for the day. I strongly encourage others to apply to NYIT and do not regret my choice going there at all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The education at NYIT is good and the professors are great. The staff is very helpful. Manhattan campus is more lively than the Old Westbury campus. Dorming with NYIT is not the best because NYIT doesn’t have their own dorms, so for Manhattan campus your dorms are 60 blocks away and require a subway ride to school, and for Old Westbury campus the dorms are at SUNY Old Westbury which isn’t close.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

New York Institute of Technology has its' pros and cons. In terms of academics, NYIT is an amazing school in my opinion. The teachers are knowledgeable and genuinely teach. There is also a healthy academic competition amongst students. There is an abundance of learning resources students can access and the majority of the professors are willing to help whenever needed. A con for me is the "campus community." Though there are plenty of events students can partake in to destress, the school is primarily a commuter school, resulting in a lack of student involvement and community because once classes are over, everyone goes home instead of actively engaging on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Upon reaching here I felt overwhelmed with the size of the campus and all that I needed to get done, however, the staff made me feel most welcomed and relaxed. Also the classes are very interactive and lecturers take time to deal with students individually if needed. I was even surprised by the school endorsing of the new ultimate frisbee team we wanted to create. NYIT helps its students in every way they can and it is a pleasure to attend here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NYIT is a college where you have to take the initiative. That year is all depended on what that student wants For example, if they want to fail then they will but if they want to pass they will study. In the architecture field there is a lot of unity and understanding. Everybody has each other's back, if there was a question nobody would ever reject or ignore thats persons questions. NYIT is amazing in the sense that school is always first and the understanding between students lift each others up when they are down.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

New York Institute of Technology is a good school there is no doubt about it. The campus is a perfect size to walk to your classes and get a breath of fresh air. The students/classmates are really great people you can definitely find your group of people. The thing is NYIT is a private school and with private schools they try to get as much money as possible for profit. They don't spend much on the students and their necessary equipment. They really do rip students off when it comes to financial aid. Whenever you ask them a question regarding YOUR money, money that you're spending at their college they barely know the answer. When they give you an answer it makes no sense; they make it confusing as possible so you won't bother them again. Sometims they don't even know the answer. The thing is all private schools do this. The teachers here are okay. Some teachers are stellar and you get your moneys worth, but then there's teachers who are very old and could care less how you pass the class. They honestly don't want to be there. NYIT is expensive and there are many students who transfer after their first year because they can't keep up with the demands of NYIT tuition and it really isn't worth it specially when teachers aren't good enough. REMEMBER THIS: YOU ARE THE ONE PAYING THE TEACHERS! You paid tuition and you are paying for your classes and only some teachers will give you your moneys worth. What some teachers look for is a good review. The school just looks for a good review, they spend thousands of dollars for upcoming students that they pay little to no attention on students that are already enrolled. If you're going into sports I guess it's okay. I'm not an athlete so I can't really say. I really hate the course selections because especially if you aren't a BSDO student then you don't get the best teachers and you end up getting second/third picked classes that barely anyone wants...Overall NYIT is an okay school if you have the money. In the end it is your decision, but I hope this helps. When you go to their campus open houses they obviously don't tell you any of this stuff because they WANT you to come to the school. Again it is an okay school, but do take what has been written here into consideration. Oh and apparently NYIT has finally gotten the rights to build dorms on campus because as of right now they don't have dorms on campus it's in Old Westbury campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go out into the real world first before you try to find yourself in college. Going to college directly after high school is not the right way to go, no matter what your parents or society says. You might think you know what you want to do, but you will find that things will change after you understand who you really are. After being exposed to the big city, you'll have a better rest of your life instead of being stuck where your parents want you to be. Then go back to school and grab the degrees.
