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.

    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.

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.
