  • When you are in New York, consider a visit to this campus, compact, historical, urbane. The main gate is at 116th street and Broadway on the Upper West Side. Landmarks here include the Low Memorial LI...  more »
  • Old but very well preserved buildings. Beautiful surroundings that are worth knowing if you want a souvenir of your visit at the bookstore there are thousands of products to buy.

  • It is the third time I visit it at different times. With covered lawn to care for them from cold, heat and students seated in the parks. Explore their surroundings, entering buildings that can be and share a coffee studies, I back to my student times. Many celebrities have been formed in this University.

  • Great libraries, well thought out and structured courses, experienced professors, intelligent students from varied backgrounds and great networking opportunities; overall a great atmosphere for anyone seeking an enlightening learning experience!
  • By far the best of the ivy league universities. Brilliant students, with brilliant professors all on a beautiful campus in New York City. It is great to be able to walk everywhere, no bikes or cars needed. Endless opportunities here. Excitement everywhere.
  • Scheduled a tour and info session, traveled from Midwest and were casually told the tour guides were busy with something else, so we would only get the info session. Beautiful campus revealed during self-guided tour, but felt like the info session portrayed how exclusive they are...i.e., we need them more than they need us. Daughter still interested, but liked much better how Barnard and NYU treated us.
  • Beautiful campus- feel free to wander around during sunset. However, take heed that the surrounding area is a ghetto.
  • I would love to go to this school in 2018. I hear they have a wonderful school system. I love their writing program that i have been hearing. I will look forward to coming hear when i am 18 years old. I love the academic standard.they have here. I would honestly say that i love the construction of the building it is so unique and well stabled.
