New York University Reviews
Through the Global Liberal Studies program's Core Program I spent my first year abroad in Florence, Italy living on a bequeathed estate! I was accepted to this program because I showed an interest in the Humanities, and checked the box on the application rating my preferences for the global academic sites which also include Paris, London, & Washington DC. The best things I love about the campus is the Office of Student Life staff who are peppy (especially Jillian) and super helpful whenever you have a question. In addition, they also host all-expense paid trips all over Italy, so I highly recommend. Lastly, the campus has La Pietra Dialogues which hosts leading minds across a wide array of topics. Last semester I was able to meet the US diplomat to Italy, the head of Bloomberg News, and Angela Davis! Need I say more?
I will be attending New York University (NYU) in the Fall of 2018. NYU, just from touring, has shown itself to be an enriching school. The campus is spread out throughout Manhattan along with its Engineering school located in Brooklyn. When I took a tour of the school, I was pleasantly surprised with how friendly people were and how intimate the campus was, despite how spread out the school is. I think this feeling came from the fact that the students were well connected despite the various schools people were put in. Additionally, I liked how the campus was surrounded by several companies' buildings; I enjoyed this because it proved that NYU could greatly help students with earning internships and jobs. New York University, overall, is an excellent school and I am looking forward to attending in the Fall.
Professors are truly passionate about what they teach, even if not all of them are the best at teaching, that's where TA's come in! For the most part the curriculum involved with getting a degree is very well-rounded with lots of opportunities for electives and other passions. Registration is pretty easy to manage, but frustrating as an underclassman because you probably won't get the time or professor or topic you wanted for a class very often. The workload is probably what most students were used to in high school, the tricky part is making sure you study and get your reading done with all of the distractions of NYC right outside your door. If you study hard and ask questions and do the reading you'll get a good grade, there's no special secret or trick; just try hard. There are tons of options to take part in research or special study programs too.
