Yeshiva University Reviews

amazing, I can tell that The University is not what it once was. Unfortunately, the bureaucracy is slowly eating the University's finances away, causing good professors to leave and bringing in adjuncts who couldn't care less about the students. Then again, there are some great professors at YU, but at this rate I'm not sure how much longer they'd be able to stay. What the university needs is a complete reconstruction of their financial prioritization as well as sensible fiscal accountability. Only then will YU be able to keep professors for extended contracts and pay them enough to genuinely care about their students. I personally am a Political Science Major and Economics Minor, and I can attest to this dilemma. This past year (2012) the Political Science department lost all but one professor, making the department I once knew alien to me. There have also been cuts to the Economics department, as well as most all departments in the social and hard sciences.

Yeshiva University has tremendous potential in growth and success. However, the Maada and Torah need to stay separate, and all Maada classes need to be taught 100% according to Jewish Halacha.
I love it!!! There’s an amazing social life’s life But the professors aren’t great. Dorms are ok, not gorgeous but not gross either. Food is ok but there are great restaurants nearby
