    I would recommend NYU to anyone interested in getting their higher education from one of the most prestigious universities in the world. The fact that the campus is in the middle of Manhattan makes everything so accessible, from shopping, eating to commuting. Not only is the location awesome, many classes and professors at NYU also provide great experiences for students. Highly recommend if you're a city person. ...Continue reading

    This school has a good reputation as one of greatest universities in the world. NYU gives the college experience (with especially notable and experienced faculty) while allowing you to grow as an adult and member of the New York community.

    Great location, great professors, great reputation, expensive if not on scholarship, good student clubs, crappy sports games, night life revolves around bars and club parties,. The greatest aspect about NYU, and the very thing that sets it apart from all others is the hyperactive student body. Students typically balance jobs & internships with heavy class loads. Lots of kids drop out because they expect the usual college experience - close-knit dorms, closed-off campus, sports, school spirit, etc. - which is not NYU. You will not feel like a student, you'll feel like a New Yorker who also happens to go to class, if that makes sense. ...Continue reading

    The city makes going here amazing because it's impossible to have nothing to do. But many students, like myself take out loans. It's a decision that you will have to live with for the rest of your life. This was my dream school and I know I would have regretted NOT going, so my decision wasn't that difficult. But it's not for everyone. New York can be very isolating. ...Continue reading

    BEST SCHOOL EVER! (all walking distance) Hard to socialize and make friends if you don't try. Opportunities everywhere, teachers who really care about their students's success.

    When you hear NYU you expect it to be incredible but all of that is just talk. The faculty and classes (at least for the sciences) are pretty strong and there are a TON of network opportunities no matter what your major or career is. However it was almost impossible for me to balance grades, work, extracurriculars and social life. The food is not that great, the people are lame, the professors are terrible, and for some reason this school still has a good reputation. ...Continue reading

    NYU is a very unique and wonderful school. You do have to go out of your way to get to know people because of the campus being so integrated into the city, but if you join clubs and talk to people in class you'll be fine. The social scene is mostly at bars/clubs so keep that in mind if you don't have a fake. ...Continue reading

    Being in the heart of New York makes it an ideal college for students who love to mingle and travel in the big city. It's a big school in a big city, and it's super expensive.

    Campus is beautiful and there is opportunity everywhere you turn if you're willing to work for it. Without a doubt, it is a great college. My only complain is the fact that NYU does not have a campus. A campus less college takes away parts of a college experience. Also dining hall food gets old real quick. Vist St. Mark's place in the East Village or Mcdougal Street in Greenwich Village for food, shopping, or coffee. The social atmosphere is good there are a lot of activities to do with friends. Classes are fun but challenging its NYU! ...Continue reading

    Good school but not worth the money! The campus is nice and not as big as you think, so don't worry about walking. Depending on major, the work is not too hard.

New York City is a tough place to live if you can't handle the fast pace, but if you can, there's nothing you cannot do here. ...Continue reading

    NYU is top notch in every category. NYU overcompensates for its lack of a campus with a ton of events, free food, activities, and perks (like $15 Broadway tickets and $10 trips to the New York Opera and $8 movie tickets whenever you want them). Located in the BEST part of Manhattan with tons of cheap/yummy eats. NYU offers a rigorous academic program that challenges students to think critically and creatively. It also helps students to land their dream jobs after graduation. Overall, it's a great school located in NYC! ...Continue reading

    Great school, very well known with a ton of resources. Without a real campus, all of New York is open to exploration which means there are so many opportunities - but people don't take them. A lot of people leave because the first year of adjustment might be rough, but the people - and the city itself, - is worth staying for. It's in the center of manhattan so you can pretty much travel to any part of the city with ease. Love it here. ...Continue reading

    Because there isn't really a campus at NYU, it doesn't feel like much of a college experience. NYU doesn't have a sense of community at all, which is really difficult for some people.

    Great school and I love it, but know what you want before you go here. Plenty of opportunities to get involved in the university but also many things to do within the city. I've had lots of wonderful professors here and at the least, all are knowledgeable in their respected subjects. Even though the tuition is an arm and a leg, would definitely recommend to all prospectives. ...Continue reading

    Danielle Vellucci is a ray of light in the darkness that is organic chemistry lab. We are not worthy of her. She is reasonable, immensely helpful, and wants us to succeed. I love her and wish she could teach every class in the chemistry department. ...Continue reading

    The best professor at NYU! Trust me, just take the class! This profesor is cool. He is someone you could probably could go get drinks with after class (Although we never did)! You will have fun in class, work in pairs daily, and learn a fun language. I wish he was teaching Spanish 2, next semester! ...Continue reading

    Frank is a phenomenal teacher! Lateness of assignments get graded on a lower scale if you're late so it's definitely in your best interest to turn your work on time to get a good grade! If you are passionate and show that you care, you'll have no problem getting an A. The assignments are not difficult, but do take time and make sure to turn them in on time!! Because of this, you are motivated to actually do the work and get excited about what you are learning! ...Continue reading

    This guy is amazing and really tries his best to make sure the students understand the material. Very very nice and understanding, and good teacher. Extremely helpful in class, and made spanish less painful. Tests are created by the department and thus are difficult if you do not study, but if you work hard enough you can do well. Be prepared to take on a few different grammatical forms on each test. if you don't understand something, he will explain it further so you grasp the concept. If possible, I would have him for all of my Spanish classes you seriously won't regret taking a class with him. My only regret is not doing better in the class. ...Continue reading

    Annie assigns the best readings, if you care enough to read them all, and is open to her students' takes on readings, no matter how controversial they might be. She doesn't give generic comments to all of her students, which makes her conferences really helpful. Pay attention in class and you'll catch the subtle jokes she cracks. ...Continue reading

    Annie assigns the best readings (if you care enough read them all) and is always open to hear her students' takes on the readings, no matter how controversial they might be. Her classes may be long but she makes it enjoyable by cracking really subtle jokes that you won't catch if you don't pay attention. Had a great semester with her. ...Continue reading

    Christine is very interactive and often encourages class engagement and participation. She's very patient in teaching Spanish to beginners, and seems happy to be there for you. Can also be pretty funny at times when teaching the lesson. There was often a lot of homework but it did directly help with classwork and tests. Do your part and she helps. ...Continue reading

    The class material isn't the greatest, but Madeleine does a good job in making it interesting. The exercises you do let's her give you insightful feedback, and she's patient with the deadlines for the final essays (she pushed back the deadlines for all of them to give us more time for revisions and to email questions). Very accessible to help you! ...Continue reading

    Professor Butler is AMAZING! She is so sweet and down to earth. Her lectures are amazing they are extremely relevant to social work. She shares real life stories about social work during class that are extremely useful. I would recommend anyone to take professor Butler without a doubt, especially social work students. You won't regret it! ...Continue reading

    Her lectures are kind of boring but if you pay attention then you will understand the material pretty easily. She does have horrible handwriting which makes it incredibly hard to read whatever she writes. She is very funny and likes to joke around with her students. Only one problem set a week and one midterm and one final. ...Continue reading

    One of the best professors I've had so far. Gad is humorous, caring, and most importantly he makes sure you get something out of this course. He encourages you to think deep and learn more about yourself. Participation matters a lot and there's lots to read, but in the end I found everything very rewarding. Take this course with Gad!! :) He has a lot of knowledge and a good sense of humor. ...Continue reading

    Lourdes is the most amazing professor I've ever had. Your grade consists of 3 exams, each worth 30% and 10% quizzes. Textbook not required because everything you need to know is on her lecture slides. She's very knowledgeable about food and is willing to answer any questions you have. You'll really enjoy taking this class! ...Continue reading

    He looks ridiculously young (and cute!) but I promise he's a professor! He's a great Spanish teacher that does a pretty good job keeping the class engaged and fun. It's a chore to go to Intensive Spanish everyday, but he makes it enjoyable. He's also a good teacher so you really learn the material as well. Just make sure to do the daily homework! ...Continue reading

    Not gonna lie- her English isn't very good, and you need to be able to really focus to understand her. On the plus side, she's BRILLIANT. So if you're interested in the topic and you can keep yourself focused, you'll get a lot out of it. But if you don't like the topics much, it might be rough. Pretty easy grader, though! ...Continue reading

    Perla is an extremely caring and nice lady. She wants all of her students to do as well as possible. This is a Spanish class, so the moderator (not Perla) makes the assignments and grading criteria that she has to follow. However, she tries her best to be helpful and give every opportunity to do well. One of the nicest and fairest profs Ive had. ...Continue reading

    This was one of the hardest classes I ever took. He's incredibly smart but I think he is not good at explaining calculus to freshman. Weekly quizzes and toughly graded homework puts a lot of pressure on you. His exams are also very difficult. He wasn't good at answering questions and often left me more confused. Not worth the effort, don't take. ...Continue reading

    Professor Brettschneider is the best person I have met so far. Beyond his extense knowledge on policy, non-profits, social work, NYC, and his long list of inspirational speakers (friends), he cares about every should in the class. He will inspire you to revolt and stand up for what you believe in. Eric will prepare you for LIFE in a semester. ...Continue reading

    Tara isnt a bad professor, shes very knowledgable about the field and her lectures are informative. But this is a REALLY hard class. Theres A LOT of work and the material is not by any means easy. If you're taking this to fulfill a NATSCI requirement either take it pass fail or take another class. Our class avg was a B- so yeah. Definitely regret. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Great professor he can be vague in his requirements for papers, but that's mostly because he wants you to develop the idea yourself, and he's more than willing to help you outside of class if you have specific questions or just need some feedback. I would definitely take his class again. ...Continue reading

    I had him for Cultures and Contexts. Best prof. I've had so far. I'm one of those students who skip class pretty often, but I've never missed a single one of his classes. Tests and papers are exactly what he said in lecture, so if you pay attention you'll be fine. Very engaging, good sense of humor, and makes the material very interesting. ...Continue reading
