About the author Visit New York University's website :

Composed of 14 schools and colleges at six major centers in Manhattan, New York University also operates branch campus programs in Westchester County at Manhattanville College and in Rockland County at St. Thomas Aquinas College. Certain of the University's research facilities, notably the Nelson Institute of Environmental Medicine, are located in Sterling Forest, near Tuxedo, New York. Although overall the University is large, the divisions are small- to moderate-sized units—each with its own traditions, programs, and faculty.

NYU's stimulating intellectual climate is fostered by world-famous scholars and researchers who have received Nobel, Crafoord, and Pulitzer Prizes; MacArthur, Guggenheim, and Fulbright Fellowships; as well as Oscar and Emmy Awards. Enrollment in the undergraduate divisions of the University ranges between 100 and 6,500. With more than 2,500 courses are offered, the University awards more than 25 different degrees. With a 1:11 faculty/student ratio and approximately 82 percent of classes having fewer than 30 students, undergraduates get to know their professors, often working with them on individual research projects, theatrical performances, and even archaeological digs. Together, our superb faculty and extraordinary student body create a dynamic learning environment, where knowledge is not just passed along, but explored and shared.

Our faculty serves as role models and shares their expertise through advisement, mentoring, collaboration, and professional networking. Over half of the faculty live at our Washington Square campus, and an increasing number of professors live in the residence halls, providing students and faculty members with opportunities for informal interaction.
