  Maybe I'm wrong about the ties - I haven't been in a class at NYU.  But just go with stuff like in your picture (many outfits - at least 4-5 dress shirts, 2-4 pants, 2-3 sweaters and a couple pairs of shoes. So you have a bunch of combinations. Maybe a couple polo shirts.   If you see other kids with ties, add them  - that's easy.  I wouldn't wear one the first few days at school. It'll also be hot in NYC in September.
The photos Kaplan shows look great. Just because many people wear baggy polo shirts as part of bad overall looks doesn't mean polos are inherently bad.  Great informal piece of clothing when done right.
I don't see a tie being appropriate for an undergraduate student in any college in the US except at a special event, such as a presentation at a conference, a job/internship interview, or some social event with professors. Not for regular class and not for hanging out. I guess it sort of could be used as a sort of costume saying "I'm dressed up." Which isn't really a style thing.   If you want to look put together - dress slacks or nice khakis or corduroys or nice...
  I can tie the FIH in my sleep because I learned it as a schoolboy.   Recently tried the Pratt knot, and I liked the result, but was almost disturbed by its simplicity.

Fat Knot.
FIH.  The Gentleman's Academy says so:
I had a few PF shirts. Not great shirts, even for the price. I still wear them but won't buy more. For cheap, Lands End on sale is probably better quality.
Yeah. It can look good wit the right jacket plus dark jeans in good condition. 
  That's a dress shirt the guy is wearing?
