  • just crosses the gate you realize the importance of this University. believed to be the # 1 in new york city. just admire its library and its complex to realize.

  • A beautiful campus where you can walk through it if you still are in the area. Does without saying fantasizing about how it would have been if you had can study there. (It is also true that there is not so much to do or experience.)

  • I found it very interesting to visit the campus of the University and see how it is the rhythm of life in one of the country's best-known universities

  • 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.
