Be different. NYU is all about diversity. Everyone you meet here is fascinating in their own way. The things you can look forward to here is bragging rights you live in one of the world's greatest cities there's basically no resource or industry not a your fingertips. Internships are everywhere if you take the chance to look and in my first year alone I've met some of my idols: film directors, DJs, musicians etc. Also a lot of kids at NYU have their heart set on what they want to do. We are really school oriented here. You can choose...

    AMAZING. Definitely one of the best Universities I've ever seen. Crazy expensive but it might just be worth it.

    New York University has plenty of amazing, tough classes to choose from. Safety and helping students get through their academics are top priorities, often organizing events to relax students during finals week and extracurriculars students would find fun. Teachers are tough graders but are willing to help their students with whatever they might need in order to do well in the class.

    NYU isn't for everybody, but if you want to become more independent, meet lots of interesting and diverse people, and eat a variety of food NYU is the perfect place for you. Even though sometimes it can feel like only wealthy people belong here, you eventually find your own place and embrace the city.

    Every morning I wake up filled to the brim by the hum of excitement and energy that exudes from New York City into NYU and subsequently into me. Settled into the cultural mecca, not a day goes by that is boring or that doesn't motivate me. NYU's entire population is bigger than my hometowns, but such a large adjustment has propelled me into exciting and rigorous classes that inspire me everyday to do the best work I can and to want to grow as a student and as a human. There is no other place like NYU, I couldn't see myself anywhere else, and nowhere else would I be afforded the opportunities I have had here.

    NYU is full of incredible opportunities, based on its location, on-campus events, and its prestigious name. There are hundreds of options for majors and many big name companies come here for new hires, so it's definitely worth your time. Because it's so big, you will meet people and make many friends/references.
