New York Institute of Technology Reviews
I really love NYIT. Im a Graphic Designer there and to be honest, I didn't know much about graphic design when I was in high school. NYIT opened my eyes to millions of opportunities. Not only are the teachers amazing but, the amount of help you get in NYIT is amazing. As a senior in NYIT, we have an event in our portfolio class where we present our works to professionals in the field. It's really fun!
The combined Manhattan and Long Island campuses of the college have about 1000 faculty members; among these, about 300 are full-time whereas about 700 (about seventy percent) are part-time faculty (adjuncts). Currently, we seem to be prioritizing our "profit centers" in terms of allocating resources (chemicals and/or equipment and/or well-qualified and articulate full-time faculty). The "profit centers" are the osteopathic medical school (D.O.) and of course, the combined seven year BS/DO program. Due to the current trend, BS/DO undergraduates will likely receive an acceptable education since we prioritize all programs connected to the D.O. when we allocate our resources. What about undergraduates whose major is not BS/DO? While they might still receive a quality education, they may find themselves receiving "leftovers" in terms of resources due to the "potluck" allocation of these when those not majoring in BS/DO are involved. If you are not enrolled in BS/DO, go somewhere else.
As I have finished my Freshman year of college, I am having an awesome experience. I have learned so much in all my classes and most of the professors do a great job teaching their subjects. I am a commuter so I cannot speak for people who dorm but from what I have heard, the dorms are literally falling apart. I do feel extremely safe in this beautiful Old Westbury college campus. The students at NYIT are wonderful and some students I will have life-lasting friendships with. I do enjoy the campus food but it's nothing to be excited about.
