Student & Graduate Reviews (48)
This review is for the NYU stern school of business undergraduate program - as a business school, it definitely prepared me for my career in management consulting for financial services institutions. It gave me the industry-focused education needed to understand the workings of a bank, and the management experience necessary to effective work and communicate my ideas. The culture of the school is definitely unique - slightly competitive but also friendly and fun.
Although NYU is one of the most expensive universities in the country, I am thoroughly satisfied with the eduction I received. I recognized the financial burden I would take on by attending NYU, but it is also crucial to know that you get what you pay for. I feel prepared for my career in speech language-pathology, which entails rigorous caseloads in a fast-paced work environment. I know that the work inside and outside the classroom over these past four years has prepared me for whatever I may encounter in the workplace. Also, the network of alumni in addition to NYU's career center is unprecedented and they are willing and able to assist students looking to jumpstart their careers after college.

New York University is a very prestigious college which works very hard to ensure that the students have the right tools to succeed in their chosen professional fields. It's nestled in the heart of Greenwich Village in New York City, which gives students a diverse environment which will prepare them for the real world.
I am a graduate of NYU's Accelerated Second Degree BSN program and my time there was unmatched and the education I received was invaluable. All of the professors, instructors, advisors and staff worked diligently to assure that the produced the highest quality of Bachelor's prepared nurses. I would absolutely recommend NYU to anyone interested in pursuing a degree in nursing. The course work was rigorous, but support was available all along the way and it was evident that the success of their students is a priority.
I had a wonderful experience at NYU. The University's location gives truly unparalleled access to internship and networking opportunities, and the school makes it easy to take advantage of everything the city has to offer. The University also has some of the best professors in the world, and continues to attract more extremely qualified educators. It was easy, as a student, to get involved with research, and the professors were readily available to offer career advice. I did not find the University's career services to be particularly useful, but my professors were immensely helpful to me as I tried to figure out my career goals.
NYU as an entity is a humming, vibrant body of talent and intellectualism and a welcoming place for students from all over the world. Academically, I found my courses to be both challenging and satisfying, and enjoyed the range of classes I was able to take within my area of study, particularly the electives available in my junior and senior years as my interests expanded. Student services such as the accessibility of financial aid as well as the information made available to students concerning topics like loans and navigating the process of attending college altogether (for first-generation students like myself) could use a little improvement and empathy. Overall, however, I enjoyed my time at NYU and my experiences in New York City immensely.
The Silver School of Social Work not only enlightens students to social injustices, but provides the skills, opportunities, and empowerment to effect change. Located in New York City, there are plenty of opportunities for field placements in clinical/direct practice settings. One can work with issues relating to trauma, older adults, children, adolescents, mental health, etc. Although macro/mezzo level social work and research is less focused upon on the undergraduate level, the social work administration is working to create more opportunities for students who show interest in those fields. For example, there is a new advanced research elective offered for undergraduate students, and opportunities for social work students to travel abroad to learn more about international social work. The coursework for undergraduates is balanced and provides an excellent foundation for generalist practice. A student can expect to come out of the BSW program with a knowledge of social work's history, human development across the lifespan, social work research, social work values, social welfare and programs in America, experience practicing and processing interactions in field placement, and social work theories. Additionally, there are various electives offered for students. In a school where community can sometimes be hard to find, the Silver School of Social Work creates a tight-knit community consisting of students, faculty, and administration. Furthermore, students are diverse in all sense of the word: students come from different cultural backgrounds, vary in age, economic status, area of interest, physical/mental ability, gender, sexuality, religion, and more. This serves to enhance awareness and exposure to differing world views. However, a cautionary note when attending NYU, it is an expensive school: not only is the tuition quite high, but the costs of daily living can and will add up. Additionally, in the senior year of the BSW program, students are expected to complete 600 hours in their field placement. This means working at one's field placement 3 days a week and class 1 day a week. Though this may seem exhausting, it will better prepare one when preparing to enter into the workforce or into MSW programs. I will be graduating NYU's BSW program this May and will be attending NYU's MSW program in the fall. I am grateful for the opportunities and people I have met during my undergraduate experience and I feel confident in my ability as a social worker as a result of NYU's BSW program.
NYU is not the kind of school where everyone would be happiest, but it is the kind of school where everyone can find happiness. There is no real campus, finding community is difficult, and most students are doing ten things at once. But for anyone willing to put in the effort, there are countless opportunities for growth. I had a valuable experience at NYU because I did everything: after realizing how much I enjoyed my Intro to Sociology class freshman year, I developed a relationship with the professor and was able to secure a research assistant position, which I held for the rest of my college career. Enthusiasm and a go-getter attitude always paid off, whether it was in obtaining that research assistant job, pursuing interesting projects for classes, or studying abroad. I went into college shy and quiet and emerged a new person. My professors in the sociology department were outstanding, counseling me one-on-one and encouraging my interest in a specific area of sociology. Sociology students in New York City have unique possibilities to go anywhere with their research, whether they want to study public housing, the Orthodox Jewish community of Crown Heights, or a public park in a neighborhood (all projects which I had the opportunity to complete). All in all, I had an amazing experience studying society and social behavior in the most diverse, populous city in the country at a school that encouraged all pursuits.
