I absolutely loved NYU…but it's not for everyone. You must LOVE living in NYC to be happy here. You can't think of going here as a typical college experience, you have to be open to the entire city as your college and having your social life not only revolve around college events and students. I ended up minoring in Art History because the classes included trips to the museums and were just so inspiring.

I transferred here from a campus school. I found the campus experience to be stifling. I hated the fraternity and sorority mentality and big sports arenas filled with screaming drunk students. I hated how the players were treated like stars. I hated being in the middle of nowhere and having the campus as my only world.

NYU was a dream come true for me. It was like being let out of jail. I love NYC. Exploring all the city had to offer was so exciting and envigorating. I feel like I came alive once I started at NYU. I met so many interesting people, both students and non-students.

You have to know yourself and know what type of environment is the right fit for you.
