We asked student photographer Jayne Chen to capture what it feels like to go to school in New York City.

Going to school at New York University, you encounter countless worldviews, languages, accents, perspectives — just from attending a single class. Here, you skip college and go straight into living in the largest city in America.

For NYU students, the streets of New York are the campus, and you walk beside businessmen, journalists, lawyers and models on the way to the library. If you want to learn more about a painting you saw in class, you can go visit it at the Met.

I’ve found the city to offer a different education than anywhere else in the world—a well-rounded, worldly education, one centered around understanding myself and the person I aspire to be.
