Describe the students at your school.

Classmates are generally very friendly. It is easy to make social connections in this type of environment where everyone is equally loaded with work and is encouraged to work together towards common goals.

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

My personal experience reminds me that the college I am attending has to certain extent changed my views, likes and dislikes, and helped me to develop stronger personality. If you are high school graduate and are not quite determined about your future career or not sure which secondary institution to pick, I will bring a couple of points which, I hope, would help you to make a right decision . - Firstly, I would encourage you to pick a college/university which is by far more challenging than many of those around your area. Thus you accumulate much more knowledge and skills than while attending "easy-going" schools; most likely you will struggle for about a semester, and it's going to be somewhat tough, but the fruits of your labor, to which you are going to accomodate shortly, will offer you plenty of success and benefit in your life and academic achievement. - Secondly, hard conditions bring people together. I mean it. Such, you won't be left alone to do the work, instead - you'll feel yourself as a member of a group where everybody is willing to contribute their effort and time to reach common goals in college and friendship.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

At the times, this college's course are very difficult as opposed to most other schools around the area. Thus, I learn a lot here. And it also seems like every student is part of a group which is bond as a whole by similar experiences than everyone has.

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

Narrow down any intended major areas, and search for college that has the best environment for schooling. Also, visit colleges to obtain some understandings about the environment, students life and classroom lectures. I would strongly suggest student to meet with the college counselor beforehand and attain to speak to the specific counselor each semester.

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

College is a wonderful time to explore yourself. You will be immersed in a new setting, with new people who have different ideals and opinions than you do. Ignorance won't get you very far in life, so listen to these new opinions and consider them. The academic process can be overwhelming; be prepared to work very hard and to be disappointed with some of your grades. Learning to cope with these disappointments will help you to become resilient, a quality that will serve you well in life. You should attend a campus that will nurture your self-exploration and your academic style. Yet it's much better to attend a college that fulfills your personal needs as a human being, than one that simply has a reputation for academic success. Your academic fulfillment will depend much more upon your individual professors than on the college's name. Take this time for yourself; explore something new in a city where you have always wanted to live. College life is not confined to campus. You will find, once you graduate, that there are similar disappointments

What kind of person should not attend this school?

You should avoid this school if you're uncomfortable in racially diverse classrooms, or if you are looking for a true campus experience. The school is situated in the middle of New York City, so you'll have to take public transit to arrive there. There also may be safety issues at night if you walk alone.

My advice for choosing a college is that there is no "right" college, only one that is best for you. This is a very individualized process. What do you value and in what order? How much do you value location, cost, quality of education, the social scene, and the availability of recreational activities, if at all? What else do you value and what are you searching for? These questions are not as easy as they seem, but once you find your answers, don't hold back. In other words don't choose to not apply to what you think is an ideal college for you just because others tell you that you won't get it. You'd be surprised at what some colleges are looking for and what determines their ultimate decision so don't give up without a fight. If you don't get into your "dream" college don't despair, but make the best of the choices you do have and where you finally choose to go. Overall keep in mind that it is not the college, but the people within the college that enrich your life and make your college experience unique. The choice is yours.

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

The administration because it is very slow and unresponsive to student's needs

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

I do not recommend basing your choice of an institution upon pedigree, i.e., name and public perception. You should select the place that is most comfortable in terms of demographics and the quality of the education that you believe that you can receive. The demographics of the student body and faculty should be a top selection criterion because it shows how comfortable you will be at the institution. If you are not comfortable there, it will be reflected in your academic performance. The faculty forms a perception of who they are teaching based upon demographics. They are keenly aware that they are educating the next leaders of the world, or the low-income population who will change the world, or the next social servants ? whatever the case may be. Choose the institution that you think will help you develop your character. The academic quality will typically follow from this. Take a look at the school?s mission. And, if possible, inquire about the experiences of the students that are actually attending the school of choice. The integrity of the social environment and the qualities that you as an individual can bring to bear upon your education are most valuable.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is not interested in college, but only seeking something to occupy themselves after graduating high school should not attend.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

It is in-city, and has no real campus, consisting of 4 buildings on one intersection in New York City. The dorms are at the other end of Manhatten. It's a commuter school. Also, it is a public college, as opposed to the run-of-the-mill private ones.

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

Many students don't know what major(s) they plan to pursue, and many often change their minds in the course of their college career. Therefore, it is important to choose a school that offers a wide variety of majors, with expert professors in more than one field. Alternatively, if one is absolutely sure of his/her future career, getting into a school that specializes in that field is more important than getting into a big-name, famous institution. It is more important to know what kind of college life the prospective student wishes to have whilst at college. Would s/he prefer to stay close to home, or live far away? Dorm on campus, or commute? What activities are available? What are the job prospects? Are the faculty friendly? Are the students? Are the classes small? Is the campus diverse? Of all the variables mentioned above, I would focus on class size and the faculty. Small classes are usually better simply beacuse the proffessor is more able to respond to the students individually. Likewise, faculty that is outgoing and engaging will encourage students to learn, and teacher-student bonds prove invaluable both short- and long-term

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who want a small college with a real campus, are not actually interested in learning, or prefer to study vetinary sciences (as opposed to medicine or nursing).

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

The college experience is what one makes of it. If a student is looking for an easy degree there are places to get it, but it comes at the cost of a decent education. If one is looking for an education, they can achieve that from the work that they put into school. Drugs, binge drinking, and the like occur in most schools and can be found if thats what one is looking for. But so can serious and studious students.

What's unique about your campus?

price and location. it is a public school so i can afford it. it is located in the heart of New York city so it is convenient and easy to get to.
