Kayla - 01/05/2022

LaGuardia Community College is a very diverse school and that’s what I like about it. I don’t have any major complaints about the school and most of the staff and the professors that I had come across are very supportive. Overall, I believe that LaGuardia Community College is a great school if you’re looking for support in all aspects.

Atiya - 07/04/2021

I do not recommend this school. They never do anything about the professors who are bad. In fact, I had a professor who boasted about how students kept making reports and complaints about her, but LaGuardia never did anything. I had a racist professor who was just the worst. I was not able to email my advisor at all, so I was stuck on my own. Most of the staff is unfriendly and they treat unfairly.

In terms of academics, it's great. The school's academic calendar is completely different than the usual CUNY schools, if you're under financial aid, take advantage of taking classes in the 12 week session and the six week session because usually, financial aid doesn't cover the short session in CUNY schools, that's why LaGuardia Community College is completely different and opportunistic for students. Socially, students in LaGuardia aren't formal, they behave equivalent to high school children. When you're in there, it isn't a college experience, it is an extension of high school because students don't know how to be formal. Academically the school is great for students to take advantage of, socially it's terrible.

CUNY LaGuardia Community College FAQS

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

    When I graduated from LaGuardia High School (different from the college), I was majoring in instrumental music, but I knew I didn't want to continue with it. I didn't want to go to college at all; not right away. I wanted to take a semester's break. I was pressured into entering Brooklyn College by my mother, who had not gone to college and got a job straight out of high school. This proved not to work well for me, as I ended up quitting anyway. I think the one thing I would tell my high school self would be to listen to her and not worry so much about being unsure of what to do. Just rack up the required credits and explore. Right now, I'm working full-time and attending school, and it's so much harder than things would have been back then. I want nothing more than to be able to quit my job and focus solely on school, because doing both is exhausting, but I can't do that. The message I have for my former self: It's not as bad as you think. Relax. Just do it.

  3. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    Great Diversity. The relationship between faculty and students are very close. But the campus is located in long island city. Sometimes, I find it over-crowded. I'm involving honor student advisory community where you can find encouragements from peers and great network. The honors classes are taught by dedicated faculty that you could be well-equipped for your future plans like transfers to prestigious schools, ivies. the best part of the school is the low tuition. You can always transfer to 4 year college while saving up a lot of money during the first two years of school.

    The most frustrating thing about my school is that it is a stop-gap. As a community college, it's purpose is to prepare students with an Associate's Degree, and to move students to 4-year colleges. Because of that, there are not many options in my major, Writing and Literature: Creative Writing.
