Hello and happy belated Valentine’s Day from all of us here at iHoot! I hope your February is off to a great start. If you’re a senior, like me, you may have realized that we only have four more months until graduation! Which means you can almost taste the freedom of adulthood! But, of course, this also means that it’s time to sit down and get busy with last minute college applications and start deciding which college you want to attend.

Throughout the past couple weeks, I’ve been exploring college options for myself and possible career paths. During this exploration, I came across several really cool universities and have decided to share my favorite with you. So step aboard the college planning express, as we’re about to take off! Our destination: NYU, also known as New York University.

NYU is located in the heart of Manhattan, NY, NY. And its campus is integrated within the city with buildings mainly centered around Washington Square Park. If you wish to know more about the campus layout and what each building is you can take a virtual tour by clicking this link here.

NYU is a private institution and is very hard to get into. Roughly 35% of 51,000 applicants are accepted each year. If you would like to know more statistics on admissions, you can follow this link here. Along with being a difficult school to get accepted to, NYU is also pretty expensive, with the average yearly cost of tuition being $70k. The school does offer some financial aid, and you can find out more about that on their official site here, or you can email the school’s financial aid department at financial.aid@nyu.edu.

Aside from the hard admissions and high costs, NYU offers a high quality of education and provides over 2,500 courses. The school offers undergraduate classes all the way through doctoral classes. Some of the school’s top programs are Fine Arts and The Sciences. If you would like to see a full list of the courses offered you may check out this site here.

Along with amazing academics, the school offers a wide variety of clubs and organizations such as choral groups, concert band, dance, drama theatre, jazz band, literary magazine, music ensembles, music theatre, opera, radio station, student government, student newspaper, student film society, symphony orchestra, television station and yearbook. Students tend to find it easy to make friends and form a community within their schooling as well as meet new people on a daily. One way new students make friends is by having a roommate. NYU offers multiple options for housing such as dorms, apartments, and sororities and fraternities. 44% of the student’s take advantage of the school provided housing while 85% of those are a freshman. Each space is located in a few different buildings around campus and provides the adequate space needed for good living standards. Check out an adorable dorm tour here provided by two NYU freshmen.

After doing some research the day to day life of NYU students seems busy, but in one of the best ways possible. If you check out this video here, you can walk through a day in the life of an NYU student. If you are truly considering this school I highly recommend going to youtube and or google and just researching your personal questions. There are several more NYU day in the lives and pros and cons of attending NYU videos posted by current and former students. I personally find that hearing advice and information from someone who’s lived the experience is more informative and comforting than the school’s official page itself or even a book.

I truly hope this article has helped you out if you’re looking into NYU or other NY universities. Thanks for reading!
