A great benefit of the NYU / BMI Workshop is the chance for students to experience life in New York City and Greenwich Village. The cost of living in the city is high. The activities fee students pay for the workshop covers only the primary cost of participating in the evening and weekend events and does not cover personal expenses. Students should budget for enough money to last the entire time they will be participating in the workshop. Students are encouraged to discuss expenses and decide upon a budget with their families prior to arriving in New York City.
