CUNY City College of New York Reviews
It was amazing to be on such a historic campus! I thought the entire experience was worth every penny! If you are looking for an affordable school with the best professor, diverse student body and an extensive programs list then CCNY is for you. The area of Harlem is incredibly historic and the most amazing museums, restaurants and parks. The accessibility of transportation is also a plus! The only true downside to the campus is the city's sanitation. Sometimes there is litter that pervades parts of campus, but thanks to the snaitatin team most of the time its not problem. I have just finished my undergraduate education at CCNY and have loved every minute of it. I am currently in the process of applying to graduate school here. I implore those who are looking for a well rounded multi-faceted city experience to consider CCNY. I am extremely pleased to call CCNY my home and am looking forward to continuing the diverse education I received. It's possible to save money!
I've had the opportunity to meet and learn in the classrooms of the most thoughtful and motivating teachers thus far. Many who come of underpriviledge backgrounds and experienced similar situations as mine. The facilities available aid in understanding your material better and building better studying habits. The clean and large campus is also a great place to sit down and study, or organize club activities with your classmates. There is always something to do, including enjoying the workout facilities, the multiple libraries dictated by different sub schools within City College, and welcoming spaced for both students and teachers to spend time in. Of the students that tend to feel unmotivated, they eventually find their path since many faculty members give great advice on career paths and recommendations on how to go about finding great internships and opportunities. There is always something social happening, including job and club fairs, that help students build better futures.
CUNY City College is a really good school! It gives you the experience of being at an out of state or upstate college, while being a commutable university. In the midst of that, the campus is beautiful and the atmosphere is really good. Academics can be very competitive depending on the major being taken, however I would recommend anyone to attend this school.
