Yeah, college is weird, but whether you want to be in a book club or boxing club, join the Harry Potter Alliance after your quidditch practice or use your discounted Broadway tickets to see a show after class, you can at NYU.
New York University, true to its home city’s nickname, The Big Apple, is a BIG university. It is home to more than 20,000 undergraduate students, 400 clubs, and unlimited academic programs. The Gallatin School of Individualized Study even allows students to design their own majors.
At NYU, the opportunities are endless and the massive student body gives the school the means to offer virtually anything a student could be looking for at a university.
NYU’s massive library climbs toward the sky and circulates a stunning, 4 million books!
Along with the incredibly impressive collection of resources available, the library also offers service incomparable to any other university library, specifically the Ask a Librarian service, which allows students to text or e-mail library staff 24/7. No matter if you need help with a research paper at 3 o’clock on a Sunday morning or are searching for a text at noon on a weekday, the library staff is guaranteed to respond within 10 minutes!
The environment at NYU is just as unique as its outstanding library. The university is one of the country’s more competitive and academically strong schools, but its prestigious drama and arts programs give the university the vibrant, liberating atmosphere of an art school. It is the perfect balance between academic rigor and creativity.
Global networking is also stressed at NYU and the school is ranked first in the nation for sending the most students abroad. The university recently opened up its second full accredited campus abroad, so it now has campuses in NYC, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai. Students from every major and program of study are encouraged to spend at least one semester abroad.
At NYU, students have the whole word at their fingertips — they just need to take advantage of everything the university has to offer and get involved!
