Yeshiva University Reviews
I really enjoy the rigorous Dual-Curriculum, as well as the numerous opportunities to be involved with the greater Jewish community at large. The university definitely fosters an environment that sets you up for success. The classes are stimulating, the professors are world class, and your peers all take their studies seriously. It's great to be among like minded people, and I'm very happy that our campus isn't known for excessive partying or substance abuse. It shows a certain level of maturity that I believe is absent on most other college campuses in the country.
Yeshiva University is a small Jewish liberal arts college located in New York City. Its aim is to provide a strong Jewish and secular education by integrating Jewish and secular classes into one curriculum. While the college emphasizes the importance of academics it also offers an array of extra-curricular activities. Yeshiva University’s size, in terms of its student body and faculty, impacts positively and negatively upon many facets of the college.
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.
