I consider Yeshiva College and it sister school Stern to be a fundamentalist Jewish Bible College. I am an alumnus of Yeshiva College.The school refuses to accept women Rabbis, allow women to teach men talmud, allow women to swim in the mens swimming pool or act in the same dramatic society with men or on the undergraduate level take classes with men. The school also has a lot of bigoted Rabbis who have a fundamentalist view of judaism.The school on the undergraduate level also lacks diversity and if you are LGBTQ keep as far away from Yeshiva or Stern college as you can. .Most students have spent a gap year at a Yeshiva in Israel or have been influenced by kiruv groups such as NCSY or Aish Hatorah.These places have brainwashed many students to become holy rollers. I advise all potential students there to read an internet article published a few years ago by Moshe David Levine entitled"Thank God I did not attend Yeshiva University. The school is not worth $57000 a year tuition-board.
I love going here and living in New York City! I have everything I need a few minute walk away. I’ve only been here one semester, and I’ve learned so much. I’ve made so many great friends in my classes. Teachers are always so helpful with whatever questions I have. They really care about the student. I love that the classes are small so I can have more individualized attention during classes.
I appreciated their professionalism. The courses were clear and easy to follow. Additionally, the professors were very approachable. It was easy to get in touch and communicate with them. They were courteous and a pleasure to work with.
