New York University

Campus Description

New York University, founded in 1831, is one of the most distinguished private universities in the United States. Its prestigious faculty, outstanding resources, and exciting location in the heart of Greenwich Village attract students from across the country and around the world.

Academic life at NYU is intellectually challenging. Faculty members are recipients of Nobel and Pulitzer prizes, Oscar and Emmy awards, MacArthur and Guggenheim fellowships. The 10:1 student-teacher ratio gives our undergraduates opportunities to develop personal relationships with their professors.

New York University has eleven undergraduate divisions - each with its own identity - offering students the benefits of a small college and the advantages of a large university. All students, whether they major in the humanities or the natural sciences, film production, or business, receive a firm foundation in the liberal arts.
