Students will take courses, study, live, and work with a group of peers who come from all 50 states and over 127 countries. The intellectual enterprise at NYU is characterized by a diversity of viewpoints, including voices of affirmation, of dissent, and of protest; at NYU a voice that is silent elsewhere is heard, and the value of the message is tested on its merit.

Although NYU's undergraduates and graduate students are diverse in background, they also have a lot in common.  Each freshman class is full of enthusiastic learners whose goal is to become independent and creatives thinkers with the resourcefulness and social awareness necessary to excel in our constantly changing, increasingly global world.

Whatever the level of study and whatever the background, NYU students are part of a brand new journey in higher education. They have chosen to take on the role of global citizen by attending a university that truly is in and of the world.
