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

DON'T WASTE IT!!!!!!!! SPEND YOUR TIME WISELY AND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE HAVE FUN!!!! (OF COURSE, WHILE CONCENTRATING ON YOUR SCHOOLWORK!) COLLEGE IS THE BEST YEARS OF YOUR LIFE, AND WHEN ITS OVER, TRUST ME, YOU'LL MISS IT!!!!!!!! AND DON'T MOVE BACK HOME WHEN YOU ARE HOMESICK! YOU THINK YOU MISS YOUR PARENTS/HOME BUT YOU'LL MISS OUT ON YOUR INDEPENDENCE!!!!!!

What kind of person should attend this school?

a person who is outgoing. not for shy people. This is a city school, where you don't see the same people everyday unless you have class with them. Very hard to make friends, people just come and go.

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

Determination and common sense are crucial, without them your college experience will be squandered. You, the student, must prepare his/her self to embrace not only the academic responsibilities, but the social, and financial undertakings associated with a higher education. Doing so will transform the individual into a person whom is capable of understanding and appreciating their qualities, ambitions, and limitations. Although, bear in mind that such a path is not preset, therefore, the journey will at times seem difficult, so I strongly advise to make yourself visible to others, both throughout academia and the social community. With such knowledge considered the reward will be well worth the endeavor.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Course availability is limited at times. No on-campus parking available, so off-campus parking can be very difficult at times since Hunter is located on the Upper East side of Manhattan. There is also a slight tendency for some professors to be extremely boring and dull (i.e., lecture intensive).

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

Course availability would definitely have to be the worst aspect since a student's social life, and career is structured around their school structure.

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

With the economy that the United States is facing right now is, as everybody knows, not in a very good shape. A college is a college and that names does not justify the school's curriculum. I thought about going to CUNY Hunter over and over again and has realized that I had made the right choice because it is fairly affordable (that is, most students here do not take loans because they can actually afford to go to this school) and that it is a very liberal and in a very good academic standing, especially here in New York City. For parents, let your child decide what they want to do because they need to learn how to take responsibilities by making the right decissions. If they make a mistake, do not hold it against them because we all make mistakes and that it is part of their growth to adulthood. For students, especially freshmen college students, do not take college for granted. It is okay to have some fun once in a while, but do not abuse it. College would do you good, more so after graduation, than partying every single night. All the pain is worth it.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I should have known their curriculum because they expect too much from their students. They are very strict with their General Education Requirements and that this must be followed by students and approved by the school administration. Being a transfer student, I should have known the school's requirements so that I could have taken those courses I need to satisfy their requirements. I wish I didn't underestimate this school because they are really strict with their rules and guidelines pertaining to graduation requirements. And I wish I was better and more knowledgable because students here are highly intelligent.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who is close-minded about everything. Hunter College is the most liberal college I have ever known and the student population here is very diverse, hailing probably every single country one can think of. One should not attend this school if he or she is not open to the idea of sexual orientation, political and religious views, and everything else in between that may be a problem for some conservative people. One should not attend this school if he or she does not like the busy and hectic, though always exciting view and atmosphere of New York City.

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

The advice I would give to both students and parents is to listen to each other and be receptive of the schools that each of you feel is best. I actually ended up at a school that my parents had pushed me to apply to and I loved it. Make a list of everything that you want out of your college experience and out of the college itself. Visit all of the schools that you're applying to, even the safety schools. Make sure that if you end up going to a school it is one that you can see yourself at. Doing some research on the schools is the only way to be certain that you're applying to schools that are a good fit for you. Also, if you're not sure what you want to major in, choose a school with a lot of options so you can take classes in as many fields as possible. This way you can narrow down what you like and what you can barely tolerate. But no matter how you approach selecting a college remeber that this desicion will impact the rest of your life; so make it count.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about this school is it's diversity and it's acceptance of who you are. There are so many different types of people that attend this college and everyone is very accepting and very friendly.

What's unique about your campus?

The professors are very understanding of students who have full-time or part-time jobs because New York City is so expensive. If you have to miss class here and there it isn't a huge problem.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the best part about Hunter is the price for the degree of education that you recieve. I can't think of another school in this price range that offers a similar caliber of faculty, courses and services.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is concerned with a quality education at a decent cost. Hunter doesn't have all the bells and whistles that more presitgious schools have, but a large portion of the faculty is engaging, brilliant and proficient.

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

the location of the campus is great even though the campus isnt very big also it is very hard, professors expect a lot from students, overall its great there is a lot going on in school during the week.

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

As you apply to college make sure to visit them and talk to other students that can provide you with information about the kind of things they do on campus, clubs, parties, etc. Also you might want to spend a couple of days as close as you can to the campus so you can have an idea of what you are going to be living, take your time taking this decicion it will be very important you enjoy youself while in school for the next four years.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

how hard it was to get dorming when you dont apply as a freshman
