Be wary of this school if you are planning to attend. If you planning to attend, do not go as a potential STEM major. I can speak mostly for the chemistry, biology, and English departments. The chemistry department is a boys club. The lecture professors are all tenure and do not care for their students. If you try to complain about blatant racism and disrespect the department laughs it off as though it is nothing. The biology department is a mess. Heavily underfunded and the pre-med head is always telling students to sway from medicine into nursing or something else. The head never attempts to help you along unless you have a 3.75 GPA. The English department is the best. They have independent tutoring and great professors. If you are a pre-med go for a nonscience major because it's OK! Go for a psychology major (highly recommend) or something and minor in biology. Enjoy college especially if you have to go to this one. But if you have a choice go to another CUNY. Trust me.

Online learning has been very seamless at CSI! Most, if not all, professors have adjusted to the change and are always helping students to succeed. I have seen a large improvement in my grades with online learning!
CUNY College of Staten Island is a very diverse college with plenty of majors to choose from. No intended major to choose from? College of Staten Island has multiple resources, such as the Center for Advisement & Academic Success, to help students plan their goals accordingly and help them successfully achieve those goals. The only change I would like to see are the professors' passion for teaching. Some professors I have taken lack the necessity a professor should have when they lecture; enthusiasm. When present, enthusiasm helps students engage to what the professor is teaching. In turn, students will be further motivated to learn and have a better understanding related to their academics.
