What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

"Alex, its you from the future. I know this might sound crazy, but I've come to help you decide on what to do for college. Yes, I know that this is a huge decision, and I think you should be better informed than I was back when I, we, were high school seniors. Take your time to decide, visit these schools. Don't just look at your financial situation, look at the experience that you will or won't have at a certain school. Leave room open for those schools that you're waitlisted for, who knows, you might get into one of those schools. Do ask others where they're going, and how much they're paying for all of it. Ask around for financial aid, sit down and discuss with your parents, but don't focus solely on money. Your parents can get by physically without you, it's true. Don't stay in the city even if you feel obligated to, you can still go to a school that's relatively close by and visit them if you need to. Go explore, experience some new things, and most of all, never forget to have fun."

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

It's lack of social life, as many people stick to their old, established friends that they know from before college. There is also no dormitory, so less chances to meet other people and to develop bonds.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would have done better in high school. I would also try to find out my interests as it helps to determine which schools to apply to. Some schools are better in different subject areas, so it would be good to get into a school that excels in the subject area in which you are interested. I would have definitely done better in high school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

It is somewhat competitive so the average student should be prepared to do their work. It is a challenging atmosphere that is condusive to getting work done.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Th most frustrating thing about this school is that as it is a communter school, it does not allow for much room for socialization as there is only one club hour when most clubs meet so it is difficult to participate in more than one or two clubs at the same time.

Lots of business. Small but crowded with students. Very diverse.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Pick a college where you can dorm. More fun. Don't worry about money. Pick one where there are more choices than just business. You might be interest in something else beside business.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could have the ability to go back in time I would tell myself to take more AP classes so I wouldn't have to take them in college since now I'm overloaded with unbelievable amount of work. I would encourage myself to apply to as many scholarships as I could because current economic turmoil has been showing its weight on my parents' pockets. I would also tell myself that college involves hard work and I should start figuring ways to manage my time on studying. Now I know so much more than I did before. High School doesn't prepare students for college and the sudden change is overwhelming: no more guidance councelors who make my schedules, no more familiarity with teachers - students get lost within large numbers of other students, no more playing around - almost bussiness-like approach: I have to do well because I pay for it and failure will cost me dearly. It's a grown-up world where I had to adapt very quickly. If I knew those things ahead of time it would allow me to prepare myself to difficulties ahead.

What's unique about your campus?

Diversity and willingness to succeed are one of the major factors that makes this school one of the best because it promotes social connectedness and awareness of other cultures while drive for success encourages others to want to succeed as well.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Incompetence of workers and lack of professionality in staff who often don't know what they are doing.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

If you come in especially a big, social party then you're not in the right place. It's a college with people who want to be there to learn, and you get out of it what you put it and if you put it nothing that's what you'll get out of it.

The school size is just fine Baruch gives you back however much you put into it. People are impressed cuz Baruch is a very business oriented city university.

What are the academics like at your school?

Most people who come to baruch their math is really good but the professors here kind of messes up that for you. When it comes to finals, the library is basicallyed filled to the top. Students would rather sleep and student for that extra two hours then to go back to their houses. Baruch is a VERY competitive school, especially with most of the students heading towards wallstreet even with the economy. The academics requirements for Baruch are quite strict.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

The basketball team is known to be pretty good as well as tennis. They are quite known to be a winning team. Greeks are typically active here too.I met most of my closest friends through a club. Some of our traditions are spring fling, BASU, relay for life, some events at lunch.

The Zicklin School of Business is supposed to be the second best after the NYU Stern business school, that’s why students flock here to get a great business education at the fraction of the price.

An elevator ride to the office of financial aid, registrar and Bursar’s office in the administrative building. Wide shot of international flags and a shot of some wall art.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

This is a brief video starting from making a right from the elevators on the 8th floor in the Library Building. Before heading to the Office of Registrar, we stop by to show you the Financial Aid office that is relocated from the 7th to the 8th floor at the corner. Then, we lead to the office of registrar which is where students drop off the form for a transcript request after it is approved by Bursar Office, drop off the minor declaration form, etc.

Unlike the undergraduate office, the Bursar Office is on the 8th floor at the left after you get out of the elevators. This is where you pay your tuition bills, late charges, transcript fee, etc.
