NYU is a good college if you're a self-motivated individual. It's not going to be the traditional college experience and while you may miss out on that you will grow a lot. Living in the city helps you mature, work hard and learn how to advocate for yourself. If you want to jumpstart your adult life this is the place for you!
I love how much opportunity there is to explore your education and career. I also really like how NYU makes an effort to educate us in all spheres through offering amazing speakers who talk about culture, injustice, financial literacy, politics, and so much more.
I don’t like how it can feel a bit alienating when looking for a sense of community on campus. There are so many people, it can be hard to find a niche of people that help you feel a sense of community. However, luckily it’s not very hard to find one, you can do so by joining clubs and organizations! I also don’t like how much crime happens in the area it’s not always safe on campus but that’s something that I expected in choosing not go to school in NYC.
I liked the access to different opportunities and people it has provided.
The expenses and tuition price.
I love that NYU does not have a campus feel for us students to roam around and gain new experiences. The teachers and classes here are beyond excellent.
Be aware of your safety during your time in New York since NY is not really known as relatively safe.
I like that it's located in New York City and that they have celebrities who are trained and well-versed in their fields teaching at this school.
For one thing, the celebrities who are well-versed and well-trained in their fields who do teach at this school only teach the graduate courses, and those courses fill up quickly so good luck getting in. Secondly, this school is for children who were too socially and academically inept to get into Columbia. You will find that the concept of common sense is nonexistent at this school. Furthermore, almost all of the black freshmen will transfer out or fully drop out because of how insanely inadequate this school is at protecting their students of color, namely the black kids. The audacity of everyone on this campus is astounding, and the financial aid is certainly not reason enough to go to this school. If you're going to Tisch, you'll need Bold.org for every scholarship you can get, but Tisch is honestly the only school worth going to at NYU. The only other school that offers the same level of expertise and training as NYU's Tisch is the University of Southern California.
Great to be in NYC, social life, academics.
Can be isolating
