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.

  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I am absolutely enthralled with NYU. I was first introduced to the idea of actually attending the school by my teacher, who was a former NYU student. The mix of culture as well as artistic integrity is enough to get me excited about getting into this university!

    It's an amazing school. The culture here will force you out of your shell but on the same note can be isolating if you don't put in the work/can't find good friend groups. I really love the fact that the campus is open and if you really try, you can have some amazing experiences around the city.

    NYU is one of my top schools and I would definitely encourage anyone to check it out. I am planning to apply later this year and I cannot wait. I’ve heard so many positive things about this school and learning in the city, makes learning ten times better.

    NYU is a professional, inclusive, top level university and community. Academically it has blown me away with all the available resources, classes, and quality of professors and equipment. Socially I have found the NYU community to be very inclusive, friendly, and diverse; where everyone can find their niche due to the above 50k student population.

    NYU has a great location and is a cool environment to be a student in. The academics are amazing. Even though it is very large, people are able to find their own community and place between it.

    Family members have attended NYU so I’m familiar with this outstanding school. I would love to attend NYU too and get an Engineering degree. I’m hardworking and dedicated to the pursuit of my dreams.

    NYU is a huge school with many amazing possibilities. Overall, it's a place for motivated, independent students who know what they want from life and/or have the personal determination to find out. However, because it is such a huge school, it is easy to get lost in the crowd of equally impressive students.

    It is an incredible atmosphere. I go to Tandon, which is in Brooklyn, and even then I feel that I am a part of something much larger than myself.
