Degree: Drama and Dramatics/Theatre Arts, General
Graduation Year: 2012

From August, 2008 to May, 2012 I attended NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and majored in Dramatic Writing. I graduated with a BA in Dramatic Writing and a minor in Producing. When I entered the Dramatic Writing undergraduate program, I intended to pursue a concentration in screenwriting, but towards the end of my sophomore year my interests shifted to playwriting. At Tisch (and NYU in general) you are forced to be independent, assertive, and proactive. In order to network and make connections with your peers at Tisch, its essential to immerse yourself in the community and participate in as many social and academic programs as you can. Unlike other schools, NYU has a diverse community, but in order to engage with that community you must seek out those opportunities. Additionally, NYU has many student resources, but to utilize them you must actively find them and take advantage of their availability. For instance, there was several programs available to first generation and multicultural students at NYU that I was unaware of and regret not participating in. I also should have utilized more of NYU's student services, such as tutoring at the Learning Center. In conclusion, my experience at Tisch/NYU taught me that I needed to be more proactive and assertive in pursuing my goals and interests. While I sometimes wish I had attended a smaller institution, I'm grateful for the experience NYU taught me in becoming an independent and assertive individual.

Degree: Musical Theatre
Graduation Year: 2001

New York University was not a friendly place to be for students who were not affluent. Financial aid was severely limited, and it was easy to feel like an outsider as I had to work multiple jobs to keep myself enrolled and fed. This meant I did not get to experience college life or really even get to engage with my studies because I was just trying to make enough to get something to eat. As a result, I left feeling little to no connection with NYU, questioning whether I had even learned anything, and dealing with a large debt for all of my efforts. I believe the university needs to do a lot more to support its lower middle-class and working class students financially and emotionally if it wants to have socio-economic diversity on its campus.

Gave me some opportunities I wouldn't have had any where else. The disorganization of the program was an issue

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

NYU Tisch Acting Department is a great place to be. There is so much to learn and you learn from the best. Tisch has the ability to accept many applicants because the program is so large which is what causes some problems and flaws because there are so many people. You have to really fight for the attention in certain studios because there are large grades. Other than that, you do have the chance to learn different techniques and methods in your later years. One large and cumbersome issue is that there are so many extraneous requirements that are necessary to get your degree, but you just have to deal with that.
