Real Talk

NYU students from around the world talk about their transition to college, New York City, and living the dream.

 
 

"Real Talk" is a new series of seven incredibly honest and exciting stories told by current NYU students from all walks of life.

Every Friday starting April 11, we will introduce you to a new face on campus. Each episode will give you an authentic glimpse into the challenges, rewards, and day-to-day experiences of students from various schools, majors, and hometowns. Hopefully, their stories — filmed, edited, and produced by students on the HashtagNYU team — will help to prepare you for your own adventure at NYU on Washington Square and around the world.
