My overall opinion of queens college is that it provides a fantastic education for those that want to learn. Of course there are going to be a lot of difficulties along the way but there are always people, either friends or faculty that would lend a helping hand. It isn't even the course's teacher available. You can go to the teacher you're comfortable with and have them help you.
My program (History) is wonderful, with attentive and passionate professors who truly make learning fun. I can't say much for the culture because, like many, I am a commuter student and mostly spend my free time off-campus. I've enjoyed the few extracurricular activities I've done through QC. Getting food on campus is difficult for me and I always have to pack a lunch as a vegetarian with a milk allergy.
I think it's a pretty good school. I can only speak on my classes and experience, but I've really enjoyed most of my classes and my professors have been really nice and helpful.
I enjoy the school and love campus. The campus makes you feel like your out of the city while being smack dab in the middle of it and the bussy face paced life. I'm really glad that they have most classes in the same buildings of their respective departments.
Professors in my field are great and reaxhable.

My classmates are a very diverse group.
I find Queens College to be amazing. It is the ideal school for me. There are all sorts of ethnicities and activities for everyone to participate in. The college organizes many events to encourage students to get involved.The school is not too large. The classes are a good size and there is help provided for everyone that might be struggling on a subject or lesson. The environment itself is relaxing. It is a clean campus full, of green and vibrance. There is a lot of school pride and a lot of support from all the school's administration
Stick to a club! That's the best way to start having a social life.
Queens college is a jew school, the girls are ugly, its a retirement center because there at elderly people taking classes there, its boring, its the school you end up in because you cant afford your dream university.
There is much more access to resources especially since it is near the city. It's in the middle of the city and the suburbs and you can go anywhere you want. The diversity is amazing because there are all types of people of different ethinicities and the best part is that they interact with you regardless of your background. It is a very friendly and resourceful enviorment.
There is no single stereotype at our school. We are known for our diversity here in Queens. Most of our students are either from Queens or Long Island. The ethnicity of the student body ranges from Indian to Swiss, from African to Australian. The international student population is growing yet, and I'm sure it will continue to grow. There are, however, stereotypes within the specific groups of population at the school. The athletic jocks who spend most of their time in the gym, the loud music students who seem to live in the music building, the science geeks who are always on their computers in the lobby of the science halls, the orthodox Jews who seem to congregate in the Dining Hall, the rich Long Island boys who never learned how to work for what they want,... and the list goes on.
A center for excellence. Queens College is the model of New York city. The majors are as diverse and ethnic as the student population. It is one of the best, if not the best city college in New York, hands down.
The cultural diversity at Queens College is one of the key reasons I attended. It was very rewarding to learn about so many different types of people from so many different areas of the world. The school is also located in a prime area in New York City, with access to just about everything a student would want or need without worrying about being distracted by what's going on around him/her. I was so pleased with my experience, that my mother actually attended after I graduated!
When I tell my friends about my school, i brag most about "Free hour". Free hour is from 12:15pm to 1:30 pm on mondays and wedendays in which no student has a class schduled. This period gives students the opportunity to get involved in campus activities, meet new people, and socialize with friends.
What I consider to be the worst thing about my school is the lack of inspiration here. Because there isn't much school spirit there isn't much to be enthusiastic about while you are attending college. The time you spend on campus is time you have to spend on campus. There aren't many students, who don't live on campus, that choose to spend time other then class time on campus.
The dorms are brand new! The people that live in them say that they are quite roomy and very clean.
My school is best known for its great value.
I really liked the location of Queens College and many of my friends were going there and I heard such good things from them. There are SO many on-campus programs that just want to help you excel and find internships/jobs and that was very appealing to me.
The only thing that I personally find to be a little frustrating is that there tend to be some distractions on campus. In addition, classes are for too long hours and too much readings in some classes. However, this is college and a part of life so nothing much to complain about.
The kind of person who should not attened this school is someone who wishes to be involed within the campus and wishes to have a lot of friends. The school reminds me of high school- you go to class and you leave- if you were not involed with clubs or sports.
You see the entire Manhattan. How cool is that?
I'm not the sorority type of person... But those who are part of it seem to really enjoy. Other than them being really loud, I don't know much more about that.
