I have been here for a semester already and overall it is what you would expect. The city of Paris will grow on you and unsurprisingly, I am in love now. The classes that are offered here in general are easier than they are on the Washington Square campus but if you want to push yourself, you can take them in French.
The greatest value that I have gotten from being in Paris thus far is the exposure I have had to art here. "High culture" art it present everywhere here in a way that I don't find even in New York. Galleries are more accessible, the theatre, cinema, there is a more classic feeling that is novel for the typical American study-abroader.

I enjoyed the friends I made, and I thought that it was very easy to travel from Prague, with transportation to the airport easy and cheap and flights from Prague relatively inexpensive, but overall, I don’t think I would study abroad here again. The faculty has great credentials, but are not very good at teaching, and I, as well as my peers, often felt frustrated. The social scene was so-so, and I found it to be better at other abroad locations, such as Madrid.

I really enjoyed studying away in Florence. I completed a minor in European Culture and Society, took part in NYU Florence's EU in Focus program that traveled to Brussels, and engaged in local community by volunteering in a local museum. I've been learning Italian for a while and the semester really improved my Italian. I enjoyed my classes over there; the topics were interesting and the professors were very helpful and approachable.
The program is of great value. Every student can attend up to three all expense paid day trips to Italian cities outside Florence, not to mention the events with free food and class field trips. You get easy access to all the amazing cities in Europe for spring / fall breaks or simply long weekends.

As a public health student, the Accra program really gave you a lot of options both academic wise and through internship placements that you can't get at a lot of other sites. However, you don't need to be just a public health major. The Accra site has an amazing range of courses to choose from with professors who are the best in their fields in Ghana. Outside of the classroom, Accra is an incredible city where you can find endless adventure. Whether you love the arts, music, nightlife, food, the list goes on, you can find it in Accra. And if you love to travel and explore, there's eco spots throughout the country that you can get to by bus (just make sure to get the proper directions from the staff first). If you want to really get out of your comfort zone and try something you may not have before, Accra is a great place to do that! The program is very small so you'll become close friends with your fellow students, but I would encourage anyone thinking about going to Accra to be willingly to branch out. Take a class at the University of Ghana, go out into the city, find a local spot that you love and make friends there too! The Accra site is a great program overall and it's set in an amazing place with amazing people who will stay in your heart forever.

My semester abroad in Paris with NYU was a very memorable experience. I was able to thoroughly immerse myself within French culture through my homestay, dance lessons, and internship. The academics at NYU Paris were alright, there were a few courses that were pretty tedious and I also felt that uninformed in terms of what my options were for Pass/Fail, and uninformed in general regarding academic support. There are a few truly incredible members of the NYU Paris staff but in general I didn't necessarily feel welcomed at times.
