An education at Baruch is one of NYC's tightly-held secrets. Whether in-state or out, the caliber of education received for the reasonable cost of tuition is a real deal. Good (sometimes great) professors, friendly colleagues, and an active Student Life Office makes Baruchan all-around good experience. Glad I transferred!

My experience at Baruch was a bit intimidating, mainly due to the major i was inn. Zicklin School holds a great reputation for business schools. However, for some large lecture classes, the fact that only a certain amount of students could receive an A made the classes more stressful, especially during finals. there's was a rank within in an accounting class. Baruch outside of Zicklin, is booming with a lot of activities. The Student center, Writing center and club rooms provide a lot of opportunities on campus. I also appreciate their weekly celebrations such as LGBT week, Breast-Cancer awareness week and other monthly celebrations that happen throughout the year.
My favorite thing about Baruch is how much it helped me learn about myself. The professors are very experienced and diverse and can introduce you to new perspectives on how to move forward. I would like to see a bit more school spirit, but it is primarily a commuter school so I understand why involvement isn't as high as it should be. Still, the student organizations and student life events can be quite useful in many regards - from professional development to stress relief - if you navigate them well. Once you get past the outward appearance of stuffy, career oriented business people, you'll find that Baruch has many students that are very down to earth.
