What is your overall opinion of this school?

CUNY Brooklyn College is one of the best in CUNY. The campus is really beautiful and the students here are really helpful. Some of the professors of specific departments are so good that you want to take them over an over. There are a lot of clubs and events going on around the campus that no student can be without joining one. There is something for every student and Magner Career Center is always there to find you an internship, fix your resume and your cover letter. You will never feel alone on the campus and people are always there to help. That's why it is the best in CUNY.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Some sixth graders spend their time in classrooms learning, but that’s not the route my 11-year-old self decided to take self decided to do. As an artist, I preferred to spend class time making comic books and portraits of my friends; I was also so the boisterous class clown, and the paper airplanes I made didn’t exactly get me on my teachers’ goodside. My mischievous behavior, in pair with my lack of studying, resulted in my poor grades, and my teachers began to lose faith in me. In seventh grade, I took an interest in my middle school’s general organization and landed a position as secretary. It was that moment that my love for clubs had started, and I entered high school with this intense admiration, departing with titles like volleyball captain, newspaper developer, mock trial lawyer, and intern for New York City Council. My grades began to gradually increase, but there had still been speculation on which colleges I would get accepted to. Luckily enough, I was accepted into Brooklyn College and was eager to find my place, but the backlash I received from my teachers made me question where I’d fall on the spectrum of success and I began doubting myself. “Do you want to come to our staff meeting?” was the first thing the past president of Stuck in the Library, a Brooklyn College club, asked me after I displayed interest in finding a creative writing club on campus. I was instantly interested and found a position in the club, that I now take extreme pleasure in running. Writing for Stuck in the Library reassured me that I was on the right track, and it was the first time in my life that I felt like I was in a place where I belonged. I then mimicked my high school habits and proceeded to join other clubs, intern, mentor, and do something that I would have never thought possible: successfully transfer into the Scholars Program. Excelling in my studies was a foreign concept that I proved myself to accomplish at that very moment, and that’s when I decided to become a peer mentor and reassure students like myself that they are capable of whatever goal they are trying to accomplish. Seeing my mentees’ high levels of confidence to pursue what they wish makes the trouble I had gone through in the past worth it. I don’t think I would be where I am now without Brooklyn College's numerous resources and endless support, and I am eternally grateful. The evolution of myself made me realize how large my plans for the future are. I wouldn't be as independent, passionate, or educated without all the support I have received from Brooklyn College. Brooklyn College has taught me the beauty of self-exploration, getting uncomfortable with the unknown, and how important uniting is in times of distress. Before Brooklyn College, I feared what my life would be like; I never thought of myself to be a leader, nonetheless a scholar. After being part of the university for about 2 years, I can now call myself a successful club leader for Stuck in the Library that fosters a warm environment of 900-1,5000 artists, photographers, poets, and all types of creative students that get together and express themselves. Stuck in the Library members often find themselves at a range of different events; our staff members are involved in a range of campus activities such as events hosted by Global Medical Brigade, student government, the Excelsior, the scholar's program and Macaulay honors, the peer mentor department, the English Department and the Junction, the Tanger Hillel at Brooklyn College, the Art Department, and more! It's such a multifaceted club that I am in awe of being president of, and it is all thanks to CUNY for making it possible. Applying to the scholars program at Brooklyn College and getting accepted had also been a dream of mine, and if it wasn't for the support from Stuck in the Library and the Peer Mentor Department, I'm not sure I would have been integrated into the scholars program. Overall, Brooklyn College transformed me into being a leader, scholar, and universally positive catalyst in society. I went to an all-girls private school up until high school, and it was the norm to either go to a private college or spend the year working afterwards. Doing anything else was frowned upon, and going to Brooklyn College was a risk I wanted to take. I wanted to explore who I was, and Brooklyn College let me.

Brooklyn College has a beautiful, sprawling campus with students milling around. The vibes are great but there can be more recreational activity. In addition, if there were more emphasis on clubs and sports, that would strengthen school spirit, I believe.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brooklyn College is a school where its easy to learn and also easy to meet people and become friends. There are a good amount of things to do on campus to keep you occupied and most teachers are very approachable. The staff at the college do a good job of helping students and making them feel comfortable at facilities such as the cafeteria, library, and tutoring.

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.
