Lawsuit Alleges that NYU’s Asian Campus was an ‘Educational Scam’

Wow…New York University scammed their students, according to a recent lawsuit filed against the university:

The now-defunct Tisch Asia campus in Singapore promised students the same education they’d get in New York, the lawsuit says. But while they forked over the same sky-high tuition charged by NYU’s campus in lower Manhattan, Tisch Asia students got subpar faculty, inadequate equipment, limited access to fellowships, and a dysfunctional building, the suit alleges.

Promises of celebrity involvement didn’t materialize either: Oliver Stone, the star filmmaker Tisch Asia advertised as its “Artistic Director,” stopped coming to the school’s campus altogether in 2011.
