New York University Summary

What makes New York University unique?

New York University, or NYU, is a private university that was chartered in 1831 by the New York State Legislature in an effort led by Alber Gallatin, with a total undergraduate enrollment of just over 25,000. NYU is situated in an urban setting on a campus that takes up over 171 buildings in the vibrant city of New York. NYU receives the most applications of any private institution in the United States and can be very difficult to get into given the competition. The school’s colors are violet and white, which lends itself to their nickname “The Violets.” 

Located in the heart of Manhattan, NYU is made up of ten schools and prestigious programs including the nationally-ranked Stern School of Business and the Silver School of Social Work. Students take classes on a semester-based academic calendar and NYU tends to offer intimate undergraduate classes of 20 students or fewer, which can be perfect for students that prefer small group learning over the traditional large lecture format. 

NYU has produced many successful alumni, including current U.S. Senators, former Federal Reserve Chairmen, and even Academy Award winners. NYU’s urban location on Washington Square and Greenwich Village has been a cultural hub for over a century, with famous artists in residence including Edward Hopper and Bob Dylan. Noble alumni at NYU include film director Martin Scorsese, fashion icon Tom Ford, and former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani.

    they do their best to bring in casting directors, photographers, directors, and previous graduates but there is absolutely nothing that could possibly prepare you for the real business of musical theater acting in NYC except doing it.

    The culture is distant. Students form their own cliques and don't really navigate outside of them. There is no school-wide community. For some people, like me, it can work. For others, it can make them feel very alone.

    It's popular to do what you do. We don't have cliques. There is no cool or uncool there. You pursue your individual passion and that is cool. There is no football. Being a meathead or into sports and not academics at all is the only thing that would be uncool.
