What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended CUNY Brooklyn from the Fall of 2015 to the Spring of 2017, majoring in Computer Science. During my time at BC I found it to be an incredibly welcoming school, with a diverse student body and professors who went out of their way to assist me in my academic endeavors. If you live off campus, like I did, commuting to the school is incredibly easy from almost anywhere in the city. The 2 and 5 trains stop just a block away from campus. My commute central Brooklyn was at most 20 minutes, and later, when I moved to Harlem, the 2 train was a straight shot that allowed me to get some reading in or finish a last minute assignment. I attended mostly evening classes and I always felt safe on campus. Gated entrances and ID checks ensured only students were on campus, and its relatively compact size and well-lit walkways meant I never had to walk far from class to class. Dining on campus was the usual college commissary faire. I probably ate on campus half the time, the other half going off to one of the many fast food restaurants or delis. The types of lunch dining off campus are quite varied, and I could always find something new to try if I was in the mood. Finally, I had an extremely favorable academic experience at BC. Almost all of my professors were very good teachers, helping me understand and really absorb the material. The majority of them were also available multiple times a week for office hours, and several would gladly stay after classes to answer additional questions I had about the material. The library and computer lab facilities were very clean and modern, and staffed with knowledgeable and friendly people who could always answer my questions. I had to move out of NYC in 2017 so I unfortunately did not get to finish my degree at BC, but to this day I miss it and am glad I was able to attend. I highly recommend it to any incoming freshman or transfer students.

I may not know much about this college yet, but I have high hopes because this school will be the guide to my future. I have visited the college several times and I am very pleased to see the activities and students walk past the hallways. I hope to visit the campus once again sooner.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brooklyn College is a very big commuter school, so if you are from outside of New York City it might be a hard adjustment. It is very academically focused, but the professors are great. There is no on campus housing or meal plan. The food around is average, but can get old after awhile.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Often referred to as the poor man's Harvard, these classes will put you through the ringer and never look back. Do not expect a lot of hand holding at this bare-bones CUNY institution, but expect to take away a significant education that is decidedly more comprehensive than similar coursework offered at more expensive private schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is horrendous. The only thing that is really beneficial is the low tuition but then again you'll find the same at any Cuny school, especially if you're an in-state resident. The room and board cost about 20,000 dollars which is way more than you pay for tuition so it isn't very inclusive. If you go to a department with a question expect to be transferred to ten different departments before you get an answer. Some of the Professors couldn't care less they aren't punctual with grades, don't have office hours nor do they respond to emails. The school isn't well kept there are times where we go without heat or water throughout an entire hall. The library computers break down constantly especially now that they are updated to "windows 10". The Boylan hall cafeteria barely has any options and the food is severely underseasoned and tragically overpriced. Nothing from that cafeteria ever tastes good and the place is always crowded even at 8 in the morning. Just please save your money and time and go else where it seems like a nice convinent school but it is a place full of nightmares.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great college to attend, lots of different majors to choose from. There are many clubs you can join or even create your own club. The WiFi service is awesome; the campus is safe and beautiful, located in a safe part of Brooklyn. There are lots of restaurants near by and there is also a cafe on the campus. Many shops like target, home goods, vitamin shoppe etc right outside of campus. Teachers are communicative and helpful. Students are social and friendly. Many job opportunities available on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I chose Brooklyn College, because it was affordable and very close to home. With that said, it was hard to meet others who were from a different state or country. What's disappointing about the school is, there isn't really much of a social life on campus unless you were a part of a sports team (fortunately I was). So a typical day for a student here is class, maybe hang with friends, then go home? At least that's what I did when basketball season was over. I somewhat enjoyed my 1 year here, but unfortunately I transferred out. Also I wished there would be more diversity in food such as authentic Asian food or something.
