Be different. NYU is all about diversity. Everyone you meet here is fascinating in their own way.

    New York University is a great choice if you want to be academically challenged while also being able to explore a wide variety of opportunities presented to you. Located in Greenwich Village, NYU is in a great area and has its campus situated around Washington Square Park.

    New York University offers so many opportunities to connect with professionals in different fields. Sports might not be big here, but you can definitely feel the school spirit throughout the university, from clubs to student events and concerts, our violet pride fills the Washington Square Park area! Being in the center of the great NYC, students get to experience things other rural university students won't.

    New York University is a fun, challenging, and eye-opening school. Challenging, you learn so much more than what your major is centered around. Through meeting people of all kinds of backgrounds and taking classes that require deep thinking about your place in this world, even after your first year you'll come out more well knowledgeable than when you began.
