Overall

NYU provides a top notch level of education, with professors and staff who are fully dedicated to your learning and achievement. I've had nothing but positive experiences from this school, and am excited to continue on with my Masters degree from here in the near future!

Academics

Through NYU's SCPS, the classrooms are not overly crowded, which is great as it gives you better quality time and overall experience in the classroom. The professors are outstanding and knowledgable, and the workload is enough that it puts pressure on you to strive to be better and absorb more, yet not too much that it's overkill.

College Life

I'm not so involved in organizations or athletics through NYU, though I've heard they are fabulous! There are constantly postings for gatherings and get-togethers, readings, etc. (which I do atttend!) NYU attracts the best and brightest speakers and educators... Creative Writing Program Professor Sharon Olds just won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for poetry!

Overall

I've only been at the London campus of the school so far, so I find it hard to comment on the New York campus, though I'm looking forward to visiting next year! My experience in the study abroad program through Liberal Studies has been wonderful! I've enjoyed the experience! Information is readily available, people are helpful, the atmosphere is great!

Academics

I've loved all my classes, even if the once ad week for three hours schedule is new to me. The professors really teach the incredibly small classes. It's always interesting and well prepared. I've learned a lot!

College Life

There's plenty of activity available organized by the school and through the University of London's Union which NYU gives us access too. I'm not sure what it's like on the New York Campus, but if they can manage it in London I'm sure it's great there!

Overall

I loved being part of the city and truly living like an adult. I liked that within this huge school, I had this small department, that we all knew each other. I liked that though the school was in my hometown, it allowed me to open my mind and meet the kinds of people from different backgrounds I'd never met.

Academics

We had a good workload, but not great guidance. I was in the screenwriting program, and I loved my professors, but I remember that we had to have an internship and that there was very little help in choosing one or pursuing one. My professors were great and they were all very qualified. The thing I didn't love was that the only barrier to entry as a professor seemed to be some success. Lots of these people never did anything beyond one movie, then went onto teach. They were a little bitter sometimes.

College Life

In the film school, we didn't really participate in outside stuff. We felt like we were too cool for it. I regret that. I remember that being part of the Greek system was really uncool, not just to the film school. And I remember that the clubs that would get started in the film school wouldn't really last. They weren't heavily promoted and they were kind of disorganized.

Overall

I transferred to NYU from SUNY Binghamton, now Binghamton University, to study Journalism and Television Production with a Minor in French and it was the best thing I ever did. The quality of the class offerings, the facilities, the location all contributed to a fantastic college experience. I was assigned an advisor who was an industry veteran, who til this day I say is responsible for shaping and starting my successful career in television. There is an energy and vibrance in New York City that is unlike any other city in the world, you must be prepared for the hustle and bustle and the "hugeness" of it all. The school buildings are spread out over several blocks in Greenwich Village and is not a campus per se. But what you lack in an insular campus, you make up with the culture and excitement of the most fabulous city in the world.

Academics

The course offerings in Journalism and Television Production were extensive and comprehensive. They included theoretic studies and practical, hands on instruction. My professors and guest lecturers were the top in their field and the courses were the best. The workload was appropriate for each class and the class size varied with type of course - from large lectures to smaller teacher assistant-led study sessions. I felt like I got the best education I could've wanted here. My internships were at television stations in the #1 market in the USA and were exceptional.

College Life

It's in New York City and as I addressed earlier, this is not for the timid and you don't have an insulated campus structure so while I (as a native New Yorker) felt safe, it is still NYC and you have to be more careful than say a closed campus in a more rural city. There was opportunity to join many clubs and extracurricular activity and I especially enjoyed working at the college radio station.
