Students in New York


Students in New York

New York is home to such major schools as Columbia University, New York University, Fordham University, and the City College of New York. With other colleges scattered throughout the five boroughs, as well as a huge population of public and private high-schoolers, it's no wonder the city is rife with student discounts. Wherever you go, especially museums, sightseeing attractions, and performances, identify yourself as a student up front and ask if a discount is available. However, be prepared to show your ID as proof of enrollment and/or age.

A great program made available to children between the ages of 13 and 18 (or anyone in middle or high school) is High 5 for the Arts. Tickets to a wide variety of performances are sold for $5 online or by phone. Write or call to receive a free catalog of events, check it out online, or pick up a catalog at any New York public library or at High 5's offices.
