CUNY City College of New York Reviews

My favorite thing about this college is the large resource facility that is available. The main library is available 24/7 during finals week and long hours on regular days. There are up to five floors worth of space and resources including computer labs, meeting rooms, independent study, group study, a lounge. People even have a specific area for nap time! It is super relaxed and a great place to focus on your work!
The campus is huge and if you need a break from all the studying door rooms are available for you to hang out in the lounge and our local radio station to tune in. A park to picnic or hang out in and our shuttle bus to drop you off at the train station. There's a gym if you feel a little stiff and lots of sports available with frequent games that go on throughout the semester. Students host bake sales with music playing for their clubs.

I couldn't have chose a better college! When I first began I was not happy simply because my high school was on the same campus. Little did I know that it was the same planet but an entirely different world. CCNY have so much to offer to their students. There are over 100 student clubs, an extensive list of majors and minors to choose from. There are plenty of programs that are there to help if you are struggling outside and inside of the school. There are also rewards for students who maintain a GPA of 3.0 and above as well as programs that recognizes students who are not quite at the 3.0 mark bug still shows their ambition to succeed. I think the best part was getting first pick in registration because I am registered with the accessibility center. Depending on affiliation (i.e. Honors, athletics, etc.) other students also get first draft to select their classes. Overall CCNY is an amazing college to attend.
Great school for commuters. However, they do not have many options for students who may be working full time jobs. Most of the courses offered are in the morning time, and very limited options during the evening. Students dont really socialize unless forced too. Which means during classes that require group assignments. Other than that, those who actually live on campus or close by, usually tend to get along pretty well because they spend more time on campus, than a person like myself who literally just goes there for class and leaves right after, because i work the next day.
