A common misconception NYU’s student community is that it’s virtually non-existent. Many applicants are discouraged by the decentralized campus and disjunct student communities. At first, I had similar concerns. However, after spending some time walking through the bustling roads and pathways in and around Washington Square Park, I’ve found the opposite to be true. While taking pictures and interviewing for this article, I’ve met an array of cool, talented, and unique individuals (some of whom are featured here). We aren’t a conventional community. We are scattered around the vast and crazy city that is New York, but we are brought together by our rich and weird personalities.
