What is your overall opinion of this school?

New York University is one of the most expensive, stressful, and busy schools in the country. In all honesty, it has high standards and many of the students find it to be a challenge because of the academics and the location of the school. These things aren't necessarily bad though. It just means that student must make sure that they are focused and driven in order to achieve their goals and make the grade. Students at this school have a great sense of community because everyone is going through the same experience and we support each other through tough times. You can find a friend in your class, your dorm, or even the streets! It is very busy here but you get used to it and realize all the perks that there are living in the big city. It may be stressful and tiring but both of these things are part of life and being at this school helps to get a hold of it and learn about dealing with it in a healthy way. Not only can you find a lot of support, you can find almost any club that you can think of and can meet a good group of people that you can click with. The academics can be difficult but you have to find the good teachers who make the education fun and worthwhile. NYU also has many events that are great to go to because of the free swag and food that they provide. Not to mention the great alumni and networking opportunities that the school constantly offers so that you can help further your future career and have people that you can ask for advice. NYU is both a great and stressful place but if you have the dedication to push forward and work through things that can be tough, you will find people and clubs that will help you throughout your college career. College can be a hard time but I know that I have people in my corner and that I am creating connections that will help me to become the successful person that I hope to be in the future. Taking chances is something that we must do in life and if someone takes a chance with NYU, they will not be disappointed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NYU can be a great school to attend. It is a huge university, and if you don't advocate for yourself or actively seek out opportunities and challenges, you can probably get a bit lost in giant anonymous classes, never have professors who know who you are, or you can be lazy and end up getting away with the bare minimum. However, this is only a feature of higher education in general, and one that is exacerbated at giant schools. It is very possible to have a smaller-school experience at NYU, depending on your major and the classes you choose to take. While I have friends who were mostly in large lecture halls, I for the most part took courses with between twelve and twenty students, and actively had a voice in classes, which resulted in my experience overall being very focused and personable, and my professors were very accessible to me. It's a school with a massive campus and buildings all over New York City, a school where it's easy to be anonymous in a big class, and if that experience is what you're after, you can definitely have it; but if you take smaller courses that are interesting to you, reach out to professors and ask to sit in on classes, you can have an education that feels like being at a small liberal arts college as well. One thing that is great about a big school like NYU is that it's possible to have whatever kind of school experience you want if you're prepared to seek it out and tailor your education to yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NYU can be intimidating, but there are so many opportunities and groups within, once you find your place you will never feel more at home than with them. I am mainly involved in the drama community, but even so the campus as a whole is surprisingly warm and open-minded. There is always academic conversation to be had, but we like to relax and have fun together too. I have been challenged and allowed to grow, and have found so many wonderful, insightful, and frankly brilliant professors and mentors at this school. I can't imagine having gone somewhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended NYU for two semesters total. While I had existing health issues that prevented me from continuing to attend, it was made very clear NYU as in institution could not care less for a single student. You truly feel as though you're there to fund a global expansion for a university that acts (and is run like) a business. Not to mention the executive board is CEO's, not educators. The aid packages are truly underwhelming for an endowment so large. WOULD NEVER RETURN 0/10.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

New York University is an amazing school. Yes, there are some things that can be fixed within the school, but overall, the school provides for its students. For example, when it is time for you to study abroad, the university is there for you. The faculty is amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

NYU is really all about what you make of it. Whether you want to study hard or party hard (or both!) you can find your people, find your classes, and find your balance. The resources associated with studying in New York City are unparalleled. By the time I graduated I had completed four internships, worked three part-time jobs, and made countless meaningful connections. Graduating is tough and just because you've studied in the city doesn't mean the transition will be smooth, but I definitely felt a lot more prepared to tackle post-grad life than many of my friends who graduated from traditional liberal arts colleges.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

New York University lies in the heart of New York City, and as a result there are plenty of opportunities for involvement both on and off campus. The Manhattan campus is centered around Washington Square Park, which is always lively and filled with fun events, musical performances, or protests for you to get in on. The University itself has plenty of resources for students including the Global Center for Academic and Student Life, the LGBTQ Center, Academic Resource Center, and University Learning Center which are always available for students looking to get extra help in classes and maybe even join a study group if they find that experience helpful. NYU also has plenty of dining halls that offer a variety of food choices for students, and some that focus on vegetarian and vegan students. NYU students also have free access to excellent gyms on campus and there are always events going on. Residence halls are also located very close, usually within a 10-15 minute walk to the main campus, and are equipped with a Resource Center for mail, printing, and other student needs. Some residence halls also have dining halls in them. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, with each student provided with a desk, chair, drawer space, closet, and bed, and the view from the higher floors is always beautiful. First-year students are placed with roommates based on geographic diversity, allowing them to experience people from different parts of the world and different cultures. Sophomores and upperclassmen are able to select their roommates if they so choose. In my experience, professors are very open and accessible to students either via office hours or email. They are always willing to make time to discuss their research with you if you show an interest, or clear up any difficulties you may be having in class. TAs are also willing to help and provide useful feedback that can help you understand material better.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's very hard to make friends here, especially in large lecture classes, but even in smaller seminar classes, students aren't interested in hanging out with you outside of class or even studying with you. The lack of campus, community, sports, and long distance between dorms definitely contributes to this. Social life usually only includes going to clubs, which you need a fake ID or special connections and $20 bills to get into. Everyone has timberlands, adidas, canada goose, and airpods, and they usually keep to themselves, although they are generally accepting of people of color and LGBT students. The classes are very challenging but manageable if you plan your time. Most of the professors are intelligent and kind, but some of them are rude and they just drone on and on about nothing. The gen eds are quite boring and they fill up quickly. Also internal transfers be warned, NYU gives you much more hell than they should (Steinhardt to CAS shouldn't have been as hard as they made it for me). NYU is for students who are very outgoing, have money to burn, and don't mind being academically challenged.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love NYU, and almost everything about this school. There is no campus, which is different, and does make me feel unsafe walking at night, especially since I'm a woman, but I still feel this sense of community. It takes a while to find, for sure, but if you get yourself involved in school activities and not stay holed up in your dorm, you'll definitely find it. I love my major, and the faculty for Film and Television, and how you go on a first name basis with your professors, which feels more personal.
