If you want to experience the ultimate New York City experience, Baruch is the college for you. The college is a very modernized and provides access to technology/ resources to its students and that is the one thing I enjoy about Baruch. Students have access to labs full of computers, printing, as well as a library full of resources, tutoring sessions, and the Starr Career Development Center, an office that offers opportunities to students. In addition, the clubs/ organizations are very active on campus and I recommend joining an organization(s). As an active member on campus, being a part of an organization has allowed me to grow not only professionally, but also personally. If there’s one thing I could change about Baruch, it would be the defects of the elevators on campus; there have been many situations where students get stuck! If I could change this situation, I would constantly do weekly checks on the status of the elevators before allowing students to use them.

I enjoy Baruch because it nice to be in, firstly; it is well maintained, the architecture in the Newman Vertical Campus and the library are fascinatingly beautiful. Next, I have thoroughly enjoyed a large majority of my professors; most were fair, respectful, interesting, and enjoyed teaching. Thirdly, the social climate is awesome; there are so many clubs (religion, majors, race/ethnicity, etc.) and leadership opportunities in each of them. Fourthly, the STARR Career and Development center is useful to every student and alumni because it shows job and volunteer opportunities and internships from a plethora of companies. Lastly, the First-Year Seminar for new students is extremely helpful for learning about the school, resources, meeting people, and getting through the first semester less stressful.
Professors are great! Staff and students great!
Resources are awesome I love this school! The main thing that I appreciate here is the professionalism. I feel as if I was taught the competitive positive attitude in a corporate setting among peers. The classes are competitive and rewarding I greatly appreciated the reading material and clarity of all curriculum material and management. I made many acquaintances and friends from diverse origin and culture. I currently own my own business and have doubled my annual profit and lowered my and lowered my expenses by over 10% within the last 6 months based on skills I have learned here. I am pursuing real estate as well as learning about investing and how to obtain current information within the global economy.
