Will learn a lot
I was truly impressed by innovative facilities and how my questions were answered in a friendly manner. I was impressed by their well-presented computer-engineering workshop. The teachers explained everything on what to do and what not. They also helped you if you need any. But that was a computer engineering teacher so i don't know if every teachers are like that for every major.
Will enjoy being here
The campus is like a forest. There is trees everywhere and sometimes it get can chilly. So bring a jacket or a sweater. The campus is so big that they provide you buses to take you to the dorms (they are about 15 mins away from the campus) or where you need to be. The only reason i gave it three stars is because of the dorms. The dorm buildings were dirty, there was garbage everywhere. Once we took a step inside the building I saw a TV that it was so dusty it seemed it has been like that for years. The dorms were very small. When you walked in you'll see a space that's about 2 to 3 meters wide with 2 chairs (i think that's the space where you can chill out, (i don't know if its just me but i think it was to small) . If you made a left there was a double room (which you had a lot of space to relax) and if you went the opposite way you would find a single room ( very small but you had your own privacy), next to that would be the bathroom that it wasn't the best place to look at. I would say those are the only negative things for NYIT other than that its a good Institute.
Bang for the buck
The School is not that much expensive, it is about $24,000 a year. The school gave me a scholarship of $7,000 for academic achievement. If your GPA is higher than 2.9 you will probably get the same amount or even more. In addition, I got $5,550 from Pell Grant, $3,025 from TAP and I got a subsidized loan of $3,500 (Interest is paid by the government). That covers more then half of the tuition. Therefore, if people say is too expensive still apply you might be surprised how much money you can get.
Tips for prospective students
If your an athletic student this school might not be for you. It only has about 13 teams which one of them is in Division 1 (baseball) while the others are in division 2 and most of them are Intramural.
And for clubs i would say it lacks a little from that but if your a student that likes to be on a single team such as me then try making it to this school.
Great for these types of students
IF your major is from Computer engineering, architecture or anything Technological i recommend this school to you. It specializes on technology so they will give you a high quality education. Also NYIT is also one of the safest colleges in America; Securities are alert of everything and will ask for your Id so they can know where you need to be or suppose to be.

Am learning a lot
Throughout my college career I have been blessed to encounter some professors that have changed my perception of the world. For the first time in my educational career, the knowledge I was given was not censored, it was free to be interpreted however it was heard. I feel this is a luxury most commonly over looked. NYIT gave me the opportunity to learn without limits.
Am enjoying being here
Perhaps one of the perks of attending NYIT is the campus. NYIT's campus offsets the stresses of college with peaceful and serene scenery, comfortable buildings, multiple eating areas, and a wonderful staff. NYIT has become my second home and I feel more comfortable there then anywhere else.
Bang for the buck
NYIT is very generous on scholarships. First and foremost, their tuition alone is well worth it with a comfortable campus and womderful teachers. Along with a fair tuition NYIT also awards hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships each year. Throughout high school I didn't feel as if my hard work would pay off, that is until NYIT paid for half my tuition. Now I am more motivated then ever to be successful.
Tips for prospective students
Prospective students don't have to know exactly what they want in their future, NYIT has a very good reputation with guiding students throughout their educational career and even has a mentor program that makes students feel welcoming and taken care of.
Great for these types of students
If you are a free thinker, NYIT is for you. NYIT is very culturally diverse and students are exposed to different cultures, religions, and belief systems that will expand their own knowledge of who they are. NYIT is also for the hard workers as passion is a requirement for each major. Students are expected to give their all in everything they do.

I would have never expected to learn as much as I have in the first semester of my freshman year.
Am enjoying being here
This school is one big family, and the relationships you create with the students and Professors is amazing.
Bang for the buck
I personally don't believe this school gets as much recognition as it should. They truly prepare you for everything that is to come in your future.

In three sentences
This college has very caring and involved staff. There are opportunities to form your own club, or get involved in the many clubs that are offered. Also, the campus is beautiful and very inspiring for my major of visual arts.
Tips for prospective students
Visit the campus and stay during the overnight campus prospective students events.
Dorm Life
I commute, but I hear dorm life is pretty good here.
What to do for fun
Enjoy the campus, go to a sporting event, visit the Midge Karr building for current art displays.
