He cares more about Social Life than the average student.

When I came to NYU I was not expecting a traditional "college experience", but I was expecting to have a social life. The students here are unapproachable and most are unfriendly. There is no social community whatsoever, because the security is ridiculously tight. For example, even though I'm an NYU student living in on-campus housing, I can't get into another dorm without a resident of that dorm to vouch for me. It seems to me that NYU's policies discourage socializing and encourage clique-forming. Add to that the fact that there is no "campus" or even a common room, quad, or community building, and you have all the makings of a depressing experience.
Responses
responseI totally agree. I've only been here two months and I feel like I've met a lot of really shallow, mean spirited people. The only people I'm sorta friends with, I hardly see and don't even feel very close to. It sucks. I really wanna transfer, but I'm afraid I won't be able to get into a school thats as good academically and with as many opportunities especially if I've only been here one semester.
