About Hunter? Nothing. Only possible thing? Close proximity to subway trains.

Gabriela

The best thing about my school is also the worst thing, and that is, that it is a commuter school. Because it is not a campus people are coming and going all day and it is definietly quiet during the weekends. However you can't beat having a campus in Manhattan and going home after class.

Leslie

The best part about going to Hunter is the diversity of the students. Most students who attend Hunter are either first generation American or are immigrants. The people I met during my four years at Hunter allowed me to travel in my years after graduation.

Colleen

The other students and their helpfulness. If you need directions or need help in a class a student or one of your classmates usually will not mind helping you. In my preivous college most students kept to themsleves and did not talk to anyone unless they had to. You had the rare moment when this was not the case but not often. So this was a nice change for me and I'm happy the student community here is so helpful.

Services that are geared for students trying to get career experience; financial aid help; overall student assistance.

The campus, the location, and students!

Joselyn

The best thing I consider about my school is that it challenges students academically, you have to be on your toes regardless of what discipline in you are in or taking courses from, If you get carless and loss focus you will not make it in this institution; it’s not for carless students. You have to keep focused and balance everything else in your life in order to be successful in this school.

The best thing about my school I would have to say is its location. It?s so easy to access from anywhere within the five boroughs of New York. The college has its own stop in the 6 train and it?s in the heart of New York, Manhattan! Its just minutes away from Central Park and there are a lot of retail stores; Hence, if you need a last minute outfit, Arden b, Banana Republic and more are right around the corner. Its diverse student population is also another feature that I love about the college.

The experiences I had over the course of my undergraduate career in this college is surreal. The amount of academic resources and student life venues are quite richly extensive. It is highly academically competitive, but would not preferred it being any other way. It pushes you to go beyond you perceived intellectual and social boundaries in order for you to reach your full potential and prepare you for the real world.

Tiffany

If you like to associate with people from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds, Hunter is THE school to attend. The group of people that you may meet in your degree classes will almost become like a second family to you. Everyone is usually really helpful and most professors are really great. PLUS, the education you receive is definitely worth the low tuition you pay if you are a New York City Resident.

Joelle

The best thing about my school is that it has so many venues around it that allows for great social life and learning experience. It is not a very big school, therefore you thend to get to know some people very well. Central Park is very close to us and we are in the middle of the semester.

Cassidy

The diversity. I enjoyed feeling like a little fish in a big sea. There are so many people at the school. So much to learn from them. There are many international students I have become friends with. I love the people at this school because they , or their parents, are not spending a lot of money to go there so you know the real reason they are enrolled is for the education not the school's name. The professors are so well educated themselves. I always had masters and doctors as professors with the rare exception.

Stephanie

The diversity among the students. I love that we are located 5 min from central park and 5 minutes from time square.

Jared

The incredible amount of diversity because it makes the simple task of walking down a hallway a learning experience as I can meet people from every corner of the earth, of every religion, creed, sexual orientation and socio-economic background. It makes classes all the more interesting as I can hear views and opinions that I would not ordinarily hear if I went to a school with a demographic similar to myself.
