Life-Changing Way to Experience China, Learn Chinese, and Study at an Amazing University

NYU Shanghai is a pioneering program that offered me the opportunity to achieve my goal of living in China, gaining fluency in Chinese, and continuing my studies as an NYU student. The campus is located in Pudong and is a new and beautifully built building with great resources for academic, language, and social success while living in China. Housing was in Pudong as well, a little far from campus, but made it possible for me to have a place to recharge and experience getting used to life in China. The Chinese language program at NYU is TOP NOTCH - these teachers know what they are doing and really care about their students. It's easy to get overwhelmed or feel a little isolated sometimes while living in such an expansive city as Shanghai, but I think NYUSH does a great job of making students feel welcome. Dining options within the school are good, and fitness center (small but sometimes useful), café, library, etc. are all good as well. Certainly a program to be recommended for a great semester or academic year abroad.

How can this program be improved?
Continuing to uplevel quality of housing, health facilities (larger fitness facilities, filtered air in dorms, etc.) as well as opportunities to connect with existing NYU Shanghai community who all already know each other - sometimes is challenging when coming in as a new "study away" student.
Yes, I recommend
