  • Beautiful and historical campus. In summer, the atmosphere is very good but most cafeterias are closed. So, people are forced to find food from outside.
  • A campus full of life, history and New York City vibrancy. Check out the various libraries, the science building and the performing arts building! Poetry readings happen at the basement of the chapel. And if you can find an entrance to the underground tunnels...
  • Set me up for a lifetime of success. I owe everything to the faculty who taught me how to survive in the jungle
  • I met some of the best people I know here at this campus. It is not a cheap school, but it was worth every penny. If you are in town and want to spend an afternoon walking through a beautiful campus, this is the place for you.
  • This college is so beautiful, Education here is excellent. The professors really care about your success in class and outside of school. Staffs are friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is cozy and good place to study. Lots od stuff to do when not studying like clubs and other activities. Overall great school for anyone.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
