My experience at City College has been okay. I don't love or hate the campus. I feel this way because there isn't much to do on campus besides sitting in the library everyday.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CUNY City College is a very diverse and inclusive environment. There is something for everybody. People are very welcoming and kind, they make you feel like you’re welcome no matter where you come from. The professors are amazing and usually available during their office hours if you need any help with anything. It’s an amazing school and even though it’s my first year, I love it here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is a running joke at City College that the students are only there because they didn't get into Hunter College. Because of this, there isn't as much school pride say as the University of Miami. While there are dorms on campus, most students commute, so there isn't really a sense of togetherness. That being said though, the groups of people that do hang out together are usually doing something fun or interesting like playing music together, dj-ing in common area, or getting food from food trucks outside. If you are an outgoing, energetic person who has a strong stance on politics, then you are bound to make friends. On the flip side, if you want nothing to do with other people, the library is full of couches to nap and has two floors of complete silence. The student body is definitely filled with the most interesting people you'll ever meet, as a school in West Harlem is bound to be. I mean, where can you find a Greek immigrant, a kid who shows everyone pictures of his twin brother with Barrack Obama and pretends its him, and a feminist who is fluent in German in the same class? The academics are nothing to rave about, but there is some unusual classes like Psychology of Religion that you rarely find anywhere else. As for the buildings, the architecture is beautiful since City College is the oldest city school in New York. It's so old, in fact, Albert Einstein spoke of his Theory of Relativity in our own Shepard Hall. We also have a beautiful courtyard in between these old buildings that no other city school can boast. Overall, City College is an enjoyable place to be even though it's no party school. There's got to be something there if Michelle Obama choose to come and speak here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CUNY City College was a school that I had originally chosen because of the price, and the major fact that it was the only school that offered an International Studies major as a stand alone program. To this day, I do not regret the choices that I have made. When I first started school, I really questioned if the hour and half commute to and from the school was really worth it. I felt that way until my junior year, when I got the chance to participate in the S Jay Levy Fellowship for Future Leaders. This program allowed me to network with professionals and partake in an internship that would ultimately change my life and future career plans. If I did not attend City College, then I truly would not be where I am today and I thank them for that. Despite the long commute, countless headaches and all nighters to finish papers, I can say that I truly appreciate the school for what it is and what it stands for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the students work hard and there are really good professors that are always available after classes and that want the students to succeed but unfortunately the work staff for Admissions, financial aid , advisement, Registrar, etc. Are not helpful and guide you to the wrong direction most students have to do their own research to find actual help financially and academically.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that there isn't enough general help, the financial aid office is terrible at helping students. My friend went everyday to that office and still wasn't given back the money they were supposed to reemborse and they even told her to do it on her own, online. Everyday she would leave more frustrated.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very high quality education, great location, beautiful campus, but little to no clubs and social life if you live on campus. It is primarily a commuter school and very few people are interested in making lasting friendships. Not really your typical college experience, but good if you are just there to learn and go home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Professors are always available after class time to help, definitely take advantage of office hours when needed! Everyone is really friendly on campus from students to faculty so don't be afraid to ask for help when needed. There are plenty of resources on campus as well as clubs. There's something for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

City College is a place people can go if they struggle financially because the school does very good with costs. Also, City College has a great history behind it which I think is amazing because the school still continues to grow and become more welcoming to different cultural backgrounds and religions. People know that if you ever need any help you can always find it on campus and off.
