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’s size, in terms of its student body and faculty, impacts positively and negatively upon many facets of the college.
It's an enriching school in a good neighborhood in Manhattan. It's a mainly Jewish oriented school and has exceptional courses. Additionally, the professors are remarkable and care about the students.
