Brooklyn College is a highly recommended college. It provides their students all sort of support they need. All the professor are great and very cooperative. The campus is great itself and it has all the facilities for students in it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After my experience at Brooklyn College, I now truly consider it to be "the poor man's harvard." My experience as a Bachelor of Science degree candidate in biology was excellent. The professors were quite knowledgable and the courses were challenging enough to prepare me for medical school. Any negative reviews from people who have attended Brooklyn College must have been from students who did not take advantage of the endless resources and opportunities that are provided by the school. In addition, the cheap tuition (under $7,000 per year) allows students to receive a top-notch education at a bargain price! Most students graduate debt-free and loan free. The one thing I didn't like about Brooklyn College was that the non-science courses were easier than I would have hoped. I have received an A+ in almost all of the non-science courses that I completed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The academics were fine, but the problem I had with the college was mostly how they treated us high schoolers on campus, even though we were dual enrolled. We were relegated to the basement in James Hall and had to tread lightly pretty much anywhere else on campus or we'd get our privileges revoked. I wouldn't be surprised if they were just trying to get rid of us. Meanwhile, the basement was almost always dirty and overcrowded due to the sheer amount of students down there at any given time. My friends and I even made jokes about how the cockroaches walked to class with you like they belonged there! Several times during my junior and senior year we had to evacuate the classrooms due to some kind of gas leak that smelled of burning tires (keep in mind that those are the only years the students at Brooklyn College Academy are on campus) and I remember several times where my friends and I had no place to eat during the winter since we didn't have access to the college cafeteria and the only other places we were allowed were overcrowded, closed, or too cold to stay in/at. I'm not saying all this to bash the college per se, I just want things for my high school to get better even now that I've graduated. I know several of us, including myself, who refused to apply/transfer to Brooklyn College BECAUSE of the way we were treated there. And all the problems we had could have been easily fixed with more access to the college or even designated places we could have been allowed to be in. Just... better service would be appreciated is all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The staff need to know how to communicate better with students and there isn't a lot of teachers it's a struggle to find the class you need. Do not count on the advisor there are always busy not helpful. When trying to reach out you need to be very consistent for them to pay attention. If decided to go to Brooklyn College get ready to depend on yourself for everything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoyed my time at CUNY Brooklyn College and felt like I learned a lot. My education at Brooklyn College was affordable and it allowed me to get into graduate school with the knowledge I gained at Brooklyn College. I met a lot of great professors and friends there too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brooklyn College has provided me with an exhilarating and invigorating experience as a student. There are so many opportunities that interest students in their hobbies and their career choices. The campus is always clean, beautiful and diverse. At Brooklyn College, there are chances to meet new people and make amazing friends. Not only that, but it is always easy to make connections with professors and staff. Brooklyn College is genuinely different than other colleges because it feels more like a home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brooklyn College is a large school. If you're coming for the college experience, you'll probably be disappointed. It's easy to get lost and feel like just another number. Scholastically though, if you're there as a means to an end, the classes are pretty good. The only downside is the large class sizes and difficulty getting into popular classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a graduate student attending Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema at Steiner Studios, not CUNY Brooklyn College campus proper so my facilities reviews are limited to that space. In addition, Graduate Students are adults so my comments in regards to drinking and drug use do not apply to the undergraduate experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although others might enjoy their time at Brooklyn College, it just isn't the right fit for me. Not all the professors know or are excited to teach. Some go too fast and others too slow. It's a nice campus, but they lack in communicating with the students about events, grades, payments, etc. It's semi-hard to get involved in clubs on campus because there isn't much information on them unless you go to the fair which is only once each semester. Same goes with sports, if you aren't at a high level in that sport you can't really join the team. There's a lot of students and a small staff and aid, and something the people there can't even answer you're question. The few interactions I've had within my major and the classes for my major have been great and very beneficial for the future.
