New York University Reviews

64 reviews
It has been an ecstatic experiences so far. Cultural diversity, students engagement everything looks excellent. One spectacular thing I like about the school so far is the accessibility of resources. Faculty and staff, student body everyone of them is down to earth. Fun activities, school culture is great with dynamic authenticity. It looks as if there are so much activities and fun stuff going everyday and so student after study breaks also have something exciting to do when they need a break from studying. Overall, I feel I have had a wonderful experiences.

I loved NYU. For the money, I would recommend knowing what you want to do for sure, and waiting until after you have completed an undergraduate degree in a public university. Save your money. The Greek Honor Society invitations can be misleading if you do well academically-they are not sponsored by the university and cost money to renew each year.
Of course, if you are one of the few who are well-endowed, go for it. I am glad I attended NYU as a grad, but I was the rare bird who decided to go in a different direction after spending 100k on a graduate degree. The staff is lovely and helpful and they believe it is truly their job to help you do your best. I have never been so involved in a supportive community.
Professors are professional, empathetic, and knowledgable in their field in the social work department. It is near Washington Square Park where many people hang out whether its laying in the grass, skateboarding, or listening to music. Campus is large and clean. Although, a racist action had taken place on campus, there seems to be an active anti-racist sentiment that is bing developed into the campus culture.
