It's an overall great school. Serious academics, great teachers, nice size student body. The only thing I would warn applying students to be aware of is the requirement to take 3 Jewish classes per semester for the first six semesters (unless you went to seminary which will reduce the number of semesters required.) It definitely provides a great opportunity to learn Torah and there is a great variety of high-level classes, it just might be frustrating to someone who wants to focus primarily and efficiently on their major.
The school is the type that if you are an unserious student before, you will be made to be serious with your studies at all cost. The Professors make sure that every student participate in class by asking and answering questions in the topics being taught. They know each of their students by name.
I love it! I enjoy the smaller class sizes, it’s a great opportunity to get to know the professors and the other students. I always feel that if I have a question, there will be someone excited to answer it. The energy around campus is positive which makes a fantastic learning environment!
Its a very driven, positive environment, where they really teach you to push yourself, and be great. Its a very healthy and safe space, specifically for Jewish individuals there, and they really work with each and every student to maximize their potential. Overall I think their an excellent college and they provide an excellent education.

I don't know
it is a great place for orthodox jews
My classmates are friendly, respectful to one another, and eager to learn.
Many of the students are a part of the different sports teams offered at Yeshiva University.
this is the only school i applied to
The worst thing about the school would be that there is a lot of work and alot of activities that are offered and it is sometimes tricky to balance the two as well the competitiveness in the classes is very high.
Anyone. Outgoing, shy, there are kids of all shapes and sizes here. Their are really nice kind kids that go here, they can connect with any kind of person. Mostly, someone who wants to stay connected with life's purpose, while creating a prosporous one for himself.
It's not co-ed, it's in the neighborhood where crack was invented (i.e. one of the worst areas in NY). I have a dual curriculum which translates to taking 9 classes each semester, attending class from 9 am till 8pm, while only receiving 17 credits. There is no social life on campus, you must go out to have a good time. Girls aren't allowed in dorms. Most of the students fit a sterotypical mold.
The classes are amazing and on a very high level.
This survey is too long!
Overall the academics at Yeshiva University are pretty average. Some of the classes are more intense and are thought provoking. However, most of the classes are average and do not require student's uttermost efforts.
Yeshiva University is a small Jewish liberal arts college located in New York City. Its aim is to provide a strong Jewish and secular education by integrating Jewish and secular classes into one curriculum. While the college emphasizes the importance of academics it also offers an array of extra-curricular activities.
Yeshiva University’s size, in terms of its student body and faculty, impacts positively and negatively upon many facets of the college. On the one hand, a smaller student body means smaller classes and teacher student ratio, allowing for students to generate a relationship with their professors, helping to advance their academic careers. On the other hand, however, the small student body may negatively impact a student who is not attending the college “plugged in” to a social group. This college is divided into cliques that makes it difficult for students to experience different types of people and further makes the college feel insular and disconnected. The relatively small college size further negatively impacts the college from offering a diverse array of courses. This could be frustrating to a student not yet clear on where they are going as it precludes a healthy sampling of different spheres of interest. Moreover, the student body’s size and the college’s Jewish curriculum does not allow for a diverse student body which prevents students from experiencing a full multicultural world.
Yeshiva University is unique in that it is a liberal arts college that boasts of a dual curriculum. Students are required to complete a certain amount of Jewish and secular classes and requirement classes from a liberal arts perspective, graduating with an Associate in Jewish studies and Bachelors in the student’s major. Although this dual curriculum provides a broad and comprehensive education it is, at times, a source of irritation among students. In order to complete both the dual curriculum requirements and the, liberal arts general requirements many students take six to seven classes per semester creating a heavy workload and a grueling finals schedule.
Although small in size, Yeshiva University does offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities. The university offers a variety of clubs and lectures in which students can choose to partake. Additionally, the school takes advantage of its prime location, New York City, by offering tickets to many cultural institutions, such as museums; concert halls and theaters in order to broaden the minds of its student body.
Lastly, Yeshiva University’s location provides some pluses and minuses. The college is split into two campuses, a women’s campus in mid-town Manhattan and a men’s campus situated in Washington Heights in upper Manhattan. Living in a city setting is enjoyable and exciting as students can encounter many new, cultural events and expand their minds with different experiences. However, it also has it downsides. The women’s campus does not have a campus grounds. Rather, the streets of New York City connect the various school and dorm buildings It would be nice during the term to be able to lounge outside on campus grounds, but this is not an option at the women’s campus. Although the men’s campus does boast a more traditional campus it is still located in New York City and, as such, its campus grounds is not too impressive nor does it contain a nature setting.
There is a stereotype of a Stern girl at Yeshiva. This is not necessarily a bad thing and it doesn't fit everyone in the school. Stern girls are, for the most part, the nicest and most helpful people I've ever met. I don't fit the stereotype because I didn't grow up religious. You can also spot a Stern girl anywhere...something about the skirt she's wearing will tell you. The general stereotype of a Stern girl is that they "grew up under a rock." This is mildly true...you can find out by person by talking to them and you'll know. This is not to say that it is true to everyone!
It's a top 50 school. Other than that.. nothing.
How bad most of the teachers would be.
