Initially, my university has a wide range of departments. In particular, the Department of Computer Programming, where I am studying, is very specialized. Therefore, the employment rate is not bad. Also, students can ask questions to professors and faculty members when they have questions. If you want to contact your professors, you can check their office hours by asking faculty and staff. The students get along well with each other, so you can have a fun campus life.
I think that it's a good college and affordable. Teachers encourage you to reach out for help, and they are quite friendly. I liked my experience in the counseling center, where they were incredibly supportive to me and understanding of situations I went through.

If I could give my high school self advice about college, it would be to understand concepts rather than memorizing facts and to learn proper time management techniques. Understanding cocepts in college is very important because it is very difficult to learn all the material that is required; however, understanding concepts allows the person to condense all the information in a way that they could logically arrive at the correct solution. Because there is so much material to lean in college, proper time managment is important. This allows the individual to be able to go through all the material and understand it. Additionally, this allows the person not to be overwhelmed by all the material and therefore the individual would be able to better understand it. These two "words of wisdom" would allow the person to succeed in college.
my classmates are argumentative and intelligent.

The worst thing about my school is the amount of professors who cannot teach well. I assume that maybe the College of Staten Island is required to offer courses and cannot find the capabable faculty to do this. Personally my grades aren't suffering, but still we the students are suffering. I feel that coming to college should be somewhere you learn and where your passion for the subject or field of interest grows not wanes. Nonetheless, the professors that are good here in this college are GREAT professors, but unfortunately there aren't enough of them.
A person that should attend this school is a hard worker that is goal oriented. The subjects here are very difficult and they require the individual to do a lot of the studying themselves to understand the material; therefore, the individual has to be able to understand the material and also be able to think critically and understand concepts.
Slackers. CSI accepts a lot of students, but they have strict probation and dismissal standards.
When i tell people about my school I tell how friendly the saff are and the wondeful nursing program they have.
My school is best known for causing traffic on Victory Blvd.
I enjoy the classes at CSI, sometimes, the classes are small enough that all of the professors try very hard to learn the names of all their students, not all teachers accomplish this, but at least you always know that they are trying. I think that like all other colleges some students study more than others. what i really like about CSI is the fact that they have the honors classes for students that qualify to take them. this allows students to find another way to try and stand out against all of the other students at our school.
Overall I like CSI. There are things that need to be changed definitely, my biggest pet peeve with CSI is that 1. the lighting system at night is terrible. its just not bright enough on our campus. Also the fact that many departments are now not allowing students to opt into a class after the class is full, even if the professor is okay with it.
What I've noticed about the College of Staten Island is the simple fact that there is no one overwhelming stereotype on our campus. We have our jocks, our nerds, and our rockers, our frat/sorority members and our geeks. However, what's great about CSI is the fact that these groups aren't separated like most colleges. More than once I'll see rockers, geeks and fashionistas huddled around a table discussing a project, or the jocks and nerds discussing a piece of gossip that was heard floating around campus. College of Staten Island is an awesome melting pot of personalities, ideals and backgrounds, and I'm really glad I decided to attend here.
There are a lot of sudents' at CSI, however since it was a commuting school and no dorms (at the time of my enrollment) there was a lack of bonding amongst the studets. I actually traveled 4 hours and stayed with family to attend school at CSI. I was the only student at the entire school I had encountered who was not a permanent local resident. This was difficult for me because I was looking to make friends in college but most students' kept to themselves.
The most frustrating thing about the College of Staten Island is getting into the classes that you need. Because of the amount of students it is difficult to get into classes that are needed for your major. This is on of my major problems now because I did not know what career path I wanted to go down when I was entering college. Now I have made my decision and most of the classes that i need are not available at my college.
CSI was an exremely competitive school, in fact, some of the courses were more difficult than that of my Master's program and the challenge I received there prepared me much more than the majority of my classmates in graduate school.
College of Staten Island is a local community college, therefore you will always pass by someone you know. It has a broad campus and safe, family like environment. CSI has excellent on campus transportation especially for disabld students, including myself. Although I have a mild visual impairment, I am registered with the Office of Accessiblity. This has helped me in my acadmeics and I have been receiving alot of support throughout each sem ester.
no dorms. not involved in groups although i hear theres a lgbt, and like a planting club where they grow stuff. not too sure about what else is offered. dont kno about athletic events or guest speakers. if im not in class im working . alot of people go to the mall and shop or sit in starbucks, staten island is boring and expensive.
honestly i decided to go to college of staten island because i dropped out of high school , got a ged , and knew college of staten island would not turn me down. and its the only cuny school on the island... but then i heard they had a decent nursing program so it ended up working out.
