College of Staten Island CUNY Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish that I had known how hard it would be going to a new school and not knowing anyone, but the people at CSI have helped me get through it.


Many students do not take education seriously.


I wish I was told the truth about the department I entered into. I felt as if I had been lied to about the music department's resrouces, class size, etc.


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.
