Cristina - 3/30/2017
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013
"I enjoyed my time as an undergraduate at NYU College of Nursing. I feel as though the quality of instruction is high; the professors I had were excellent in their respective fields and as teachers. The fact that the university is in New York City provided me with a diverse array of healthcare clinical sites in which to learn as well as different places to explore on my days off."

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017
"My education at New York University gave me more than just a Bachelor's Degree. A college degree from NYU is an education on the city of New York. With each walk to class, each ride on the subway, I learned about the diversity of culture, economic status, and opportunity that build the city of New York. Academically, NYU is rigorous and the course catalogs are endless. The core curriculum at the College of Arts and Sciences consisted of both useful practical coursework and some courses that felt disconnected and unimportant. The Economics department at NYU is well structured, and allows students to pursue electives in specific areas of interest. The main disadvantage to studying Economics at NYU is the large class size that makes developing a relationship with professors difficult at best. Overall, I would certainly recommend pursuing an Economics degree from New York University."

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2009
"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."
