NYU's Washington Square campus is located in the heart of Greenwich Village, a historic neighborhood that has attracted generations of writers, musicians, artists, and intellectuals. The campus surrounds beautiful Washington Square Park, where students gather to study, enjoy musical performances and events, and spend time with friends. Rather than building walls to separate the campus from the community, NYU embraces the city as an essential element of academic life. New York is a world center of finance, media, and art, offering internships, part-time jobs and research experiences that pair course work with practical experience. The city offers the best in theatre, dance, music, film, museums, and galleries. Undergraduates can be found presenting academic papers at annual conferences; winning prizes at film festivals; working on innovative technology in Brooklyn’s “Tech Triangle”; interning on Wall Street; and completing field work in some of the world's best hospitals and schools.
