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.

Degree: Film/Cinema/Video Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

If you're an extrovert and love the city you will have fun. As a shy person, I didn't love it but fortunately my major was small enough for me to make friends. I am not the type to go for a themed-floor but I was assigned one in my freshman year dorm (second semester, first I was elsewhere and it was awful) and the themed-floor was much more friendly and less intimidating.

Degree: American Government and Politics (United States)
Graduation Year: 2005

I love NYU but it is prohibitively expensive. Without a scholarship I never could've attended there and even with it I had to graduate a year early. 10 years later and I'm still paying off my loans. While the experience was phenomenal I'm not sure it was worth the cost.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2007

My classes and teachers were wonderful. All my professors were very intelligent and fair, expectations were neither too high nor too low. There were a variety of interesting course topics. However, as a transfer student from out of state, I felt very isolated socially. Also, I think the university is overpriced.

Degree: Spanish Language and Literature
Graduation Year: 2007

It was a nice place to go and the classes and educational environment were wonderful but if you can't afford the absurdly high price it's not really essential to go there.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2010

Many graduate programs are unnecessary. Students should really research degree programs to ensure its a correct fit prior to making such a huge financial commitment.

Degree: Dance, General
Graduation Year: 2013

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

Degree: Computer Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Environment was nice, professors were great sometimes, but ultimately I don't honestly feel like it prepared me well for the job market in my field.
