I absolutely hate it here. The atmosphere is incredibly depressing, the students are arrogant and sobby, the faculty is unhelpful and very self absorbed, and the academics are a joke. Teachers pile on the work but most of it is completely and utterly useless but still, it is VERY very hard to keep your head above water academically here.

It is even harder to survive socially here. This has nothing to do with how "well adjusted" or "social" you are as a person—it is hard for everyone to get by here. NYC, as wonderful of a city that it is, is a very hostile environment to go to school in. It is not the ideal place to attend college. Everyone is very distracted by new york and runs off in their own directions. It is impossible and i mean impossible to meet anyone at this school. You make friends with the people you live with, and everyone clings to each other which creates an insanely cliquish atmosphere. The only thing to do is go to clubs and there is a lot of drug use at this school-the students tend to be very very wealthy and stuck up beyond belief. NYU does not care about their students at all and make no effort to create a sociable and warm environment. Without any unifying factor here, everything just sucks and the social life suffers incredibly. I agree with the person below me: everything that the student body does (clubs, bars, etc) people do AFTER college. Why waste your college experience in a concrete jungle? go play on quads and go to a football game, a house party, feel like you are part of a COMMUNITY. Besides, you can party in the city properly when you are 21+..doing it here as a minor fucking sucks.

OH, and luxurious dorms?! HAHA that is a joke. sure we have our own bathrooms everything is incredibly filthy. there are mice, roaches, bed bugs, rats, you name it that infest the dorms. disgusting.

Yes, NYU is a brand name school. But are you really willing to sacrifice a real college experience for this shit school and waste hundreds of thousands of dollars here? i dont know what im doing here and i'm transferring as soon as i can.

questionHey any way we can talk through email? I am a freshman here, second semester, and I hate NYU so much too. Email me, _email_removed_
