New York University

In the heart of Greenwich Village, New York University is the largest private research university in the country as well as one of the most well-regarded. Being such a large university with one of the largest student housing systems in the U.S. is quite a feat considering the constraints of being situated in one of the most densely populated cities in the country. NYU is comprised of 18 schools, colleges and institutes that offer students over 150 majors as well as individual studies programs. In the heart of New York City, the university offers its students countless internship outlets in investment banking, international relations and entrepreneurship among many others. NYU also has an international presence as a founding member of the League of World Universities and with multiple study abroad sites in Europe, South America, Asia and the Middle East. Students get the opportunity to excel with a world of resources at hand and excellent faculty to guide them.
