Here's the thing, I go to the ManahattanNot so brightEngineering Department
Here's the thing, I go to the Manahattan campus so things are a little different here than in Old Westbury. You have to actually try to make friends and do things on campus, as there isn't much to the spaces available. There are cliques and crews that may make a student who lives at home initially seem unwelcome, but it is very easy to join up with the various clubs and events that take place.

Is it the most difficult school in the world?
Not in the least, although you are expected to learn material and for the most part carry the information into succeeding courses. Although meant to be a career oriented university, some classes are best described as "repeat what the professor said and get an A."

Staff is helpful for the most part, and I have not had any major troubles yet (knock on wood) and when I did have financial aid issues, the SSC did help me. In short: not the hardest school, but not entirely a pushover, helpful campus resources, but needs a little help in forming a true school community between the campuses.

The school does not care for the student'sBrightCommunications
The school does not care for the student's future. They will say they do, but thats just a line in their brochure to attract more students. The truth is schools like New York Institute of Technology are after your money. It is a BUSINESS. What you pay for the school, does not match with what you are getting from the school.

There are so many negative things I can say about the school, but it would just go on and on. I will say four important examples that every parent and student should be award of. Classes are Limited. maybe 1 or 2 professors teach a specific class therefore you have to follow their schedule. Many of the professors do not know how to teach students effectively. Many of them give A's like candy. The office staff. My sum it up, they are rude, sarcastic and unapproachable. And finally tuition, $12,500 - $13,500 per semester. A lot of money for a subpar...everything. FYI, Their TuitionPay does not allow credit cards for monthly payments which makes paying for tuition more difficult.MY advice is to RECONSIDER and choose a school that can fulfill your needs to have a better and successful future.

I am a graduateSuper BrilliantNursing
I am a graduate of class 2016 and must admit that the nursing program is excellent! Dr Neville determination has improved the quality and success of this major. I spent 3 yrs at NYIT and I have no regrets! If you are looking for a nursing program that's challenging, NYIT is known for that.
