New York University Reviews
Attending NYU has been an amazing experience! NYU is somewhat diverse because there are many international students. But I feel that it lacks in more Latino and African American students. NYU is not big on athletics, but they have two gym locations that have various types of equipment and courts. The dorms vary based on the location some of them are really modern, but others need some repairs and renovation. Campus food is alright. I recommend going to Kimmel, instead of Weinstein because it is less crowded. Freshmen living in dorms have to get a meal plan. Overall, the campus is in the center of the city so there are a lot of events and locations to go to on the weekends.
The campus is very much urban, which is exactly what I am looking for! Its boundaries lie around Washington Square Park and extend a few blocks beyond the park. The facilities are highly advanced, including state-of-the-art technological accesses, as well as brand new furniture and decor. The academics are outstanding, with a multitude of well-known figures that are currently attending the university or are apart of the vast alumni association.
I love NYU! I'm a film and television major at NYU Tisch, and I am having the time of my life. All of my professors have been so inspiring and they actually take an interest in you and what your strengths and weaknesses are. Tisch has given me so much valuable experience on student sets and in class that I am sure I could not have received anywhere else. There are so many classes to choose from in every aspect of filmmaking, which gives students so many skills that can be marketable when looking for a job after graduation. The internship coordinator is amazing as well, as many of my friends and I have found our internships through him. NYU is amazing!
