The name of my College is Hunter College, a city university of new york college. Known for its excellence in graduating the best graduates in New York and often sought after by employers from all works of life.The school is highly competetive because of the high standard of education it provides and i am proud to be a member of Hunter College.

I would guess Hunter College is best known for it's education program. It began as a school for women interested in teaching some time in the late nineteenth century. Even today more women than men attend Hunter, which is something else the school is known for. Oh, I guess I should also mention the purple and gold school colors. There seems to be a clear line dividing those who appreciate the grape colored graduation gowns and those who detest it. Either way, you can't think of Hunter and not think about the lovely color purple.

My school is best known for its education quality. It has been rank number two for “Best Value” in public education according to the “Best Value Colleges for 2010”. According to “The Princeton Review’s” 2011 edition of the "Best 373 Colleges" it’s one of the best colleges or universities in the United States.

My school is best known for being fairly liberal. Most of the classes tend to lean toward English, History, Film and Humanities. It is also notorious for being almost impossible to register for a science class. There is one psycology class for 10,000 people. Another trend I've noticed is that most people I know that went to Hunter stayed for two years and then left to other college. One girl I knew became a farmer, but I don't think that's really the school's fault.

Sean

I would say Hunter College is best known for it's nursing program. A good number of my friends are in either the nursing or pre-med program. From my understanding, the curriculums of these programs are very rigorous. I also know that the pre-law program is well known. I am a student in the pre-law program, and noticed that a number of my peers attended Hunter specifically to study law.

Top 100 public college, but the students have to find out themselves if the school worths it. Some of the Hunter professors are wonderful.

Hunter is the exact illustration of what it is to be a melting pot. Honestly, there are so many different cultures and such a liberal and out spoken community, it truely reminds you where you are - New York City.
