New York City
NYU is also a great place to meet people from all over the world. There are so many international students here studying at all levels, including a large number of international scholars who come on exchange programs from other schools around the world. In fact, I met some great friends from China and Korea while I was there. One thing that surprised me about NYU is that it doesn't have its own campus. Instead, it consists of five different schools spread throughout Manhattan:
The New School for Social Research, the School of Arts and Science, the Tisch School of the Arts (which includes film studies), the Steinhardt School of Education, and the Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.
If you're interested in studying at New York University, it's wise to know what the school is known for. NYU's strengths include its business school and Stern School of Business, which are consistently ranked among the top programs in the country (particularly in terms of innovation). But there are other disciplines that have strong reputations at NYU: finance, philosophy and religion, urban studies (a relatively new program), music composition, comparative literature and creative writing.
The city itself offers all sorts of opportunities for students looking to get involved outside of class. There are an abundance of cultural events like concerts and theater productions; restaurants with great food; sports teams such as hockey and basketball; museums with world-class collections; parks where you can go on runs or bike rides; clubs where you can meet new people who share your interests—the list goes on! Plus there's also easy access by train into Manhattan if you want a change of scenery from time to time.
As far as the curriculum goes, there are lots of options. The core classes that every student must take include writing seminars and math courses (algebra and statistics). Beyond those, you can choose from more than 100 majors, minors or concentrations. The most popular majors are biology, psychology and economics; but there are also lots of engineering majors and a few that are specific to NYU like film production.
