High school seniors are left sitting on the edge of their seats while they anxiously wait for those acceptance letters to come in the mail. Once they arrive, the decision process can be equally lengthy and difficult. Out of all the schools out there, what are their reasons for choosing NYIT? Matt Santamaria, an incoming freshman to the school talks about his decision process, “NYIT stood out to me because it has more of a college feel then I saw from the other schools,” he explains. “I feel I can develop friendships with students that can last a lifetime at NYIT.”Matt will be studying communication arts with a focus in film and journalism in the fall.

Once all of the acceptance letters have arrived, the hard part begins. It’s time for the soon-to-be high school graduates to make the first major decision of their lives. When it comes to choosing one school over the other, certain factors must be considered. A dire concern for most families is cost; how much is the tuition and is it worth the investment? Financial aid helps pay those costly tuition bills and is a giant plus on a school’s pros and cons list—which we all create as we’re making our decisions. Matt received a merit scholarship of $13,000 from NYIT. When asked if the money contributed to his decision to enroll, he answered, “Yes it did because it gave me another reason to attend NYIT and will also help financially.”

A majority of applicants choose schools that offer their area of interest. Offering over 90 degree programs and 50 fields of study, you are sure to find something that interests you at NYIT. “I was attracted to NYIT specifically because of the communication arts program,” says Erin Burdan, an incoming freshman. “I couldn’t find a program quite like it at any other university I looked at, and it was exactly what I wanted. I also loved the location of the school—who wouldn’t want to study communication arts in New York City?”

NYIT also offers small class sizes, with an average of 25 students per class. Steven Finn, an incoming freshman says, “ The small class sizes will be useful in getting to know other students and my professors.” Steven will be studying architectural technology at the Manhattan campus.

Among many things, Erin Burdan was also impressed by the small class sizes—marking a giant check mark in her pros list for NYIT. “I loved everything the school had to offer,” Erin explains. “…The academics, tutoring help, small class sizes, individual attention from teachers and staff, countless clubs and activities to participate in, and the career services in place. I’m excited to be an NYIT student this fall!” NYIT is certainly getting many high school seniors excited for the next phase of their lives, making it evident that NYIT is doing a good job of offering what upcoming college students want in their college education.
