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.

I like the diversity and the architectural structure of the school. There is a lot of beautiful spots to relax and study and many student activities during the semester, including the DJ every Thursday!
As a mechanical engineering major at CCNY I can say that this school has a lot to offer in academics. Aside from taking a few unnecessary and under-stimulating classes, major related courses as well as upper level prerequisites will be a very challenging and stimulating learning experience. The social life is far from great. It will most definitely be hard to make friends at the start of your career but if you get involved in clubs you will get to meet and know a lot more people and hopefully have budding relationships from there. Despite the good academics some of the facilities are lacking in general. The grove school of engineering and North Academic Center have unattractive interior design. The functionality of the facilities are adequate but can be better. But all in all, I can say you get exactly, if not more than what you paid for.
