    NYU actually provided fun things to do so we didn't have to find them all on our own! Since I'm in a country where I could legally drink, NYU hosted a welcome party at a club when everyone arrived, took students on a Pub Crawl, and several holiday parties where mulled wine and desserts were served. They had relaxing things to do while finals week was torturing students. The best part was the Cultural Programming events. Each student was given a hundred credits to use on events and trips NYU would pay for. Some things cost more credits than others and one could only use the hundred credits they were given, but that included some fantastic things like the ballet, musicals, Harry Potter Studio Tour, sports matches, and trips that would take a couple hours to get to. NYU showed us what it was like to have fun in London!

    Go out to museums, there's student discounts/free admission. Go out to eat (there's plenty of cheap and good place, just have to find them). Go to WSP or Central Park, just explore the city.

    Everything you could possibly imagine is at your fingertips! Don't get stuck in Washington Square, hop on the Subway and explore the entire map. Go see a play on broadway, visit the Met on the Upper East side, go to Smorgasburg in Brooklyn, and check out the amazing galleries and the Highline in Chelsea. There is always something to do whether its 1 PM or 1 AM or any time in between. There has not been a single day of boredom since I've gotten here and I don't plan to have one over my entire 4 years.

    Pay attention to on-campus events (there are a ton!) but make sure to look at other events that are happening around the city. There are a million things to do for cheap that you can't do anywhere else in the world.

    There's so much to do. You can get into some museums free with your student ID. However, I do recommend paying the admission to the Met anyway because the Met is amazing. It's also nice to walk around. I personally love taking walks, and NYC is great for that. It's a nice way to get fresh air while taking in the new sights. There's always events that offer free food around campus (make sure to join clubs and get involved). You should also make sure to hit up Little Italy and Chinatown (and go to Flushing if you're feeling a little more adventurous). Basically, do what you like to do. You can find standup comedy, poetry readings, parties, and festivals. There are flea markets and tons and tons of shops around. What you make of NYC is limitless. Also, I recommend taking a walk down Broadway. The amount of shops on one road should be illegal.

    Shanghai is one of the biggest cities in the world, and it has a big international community. Therefore, there is a lot to see. You can explore the traditional Chinese temples and markets, or go out to an American bar. You can find any type of food you like, from all over the world, and the club scene is continuously changing with shark tanks and all the types of music.
