CUNY College of Staten Island Reviews
College of Staten Island is a good college, but there are flaws within the teachers, faculty, safety patrol (cops), dorms, and even students. There are many issues like how the safety patrol don't protect the school, the rules on campus aren't followed by anyone (tobacco free campus), everyone smokes. The administration is terrible because they don't take care of peoples' problems, financial aid is harassed almost every day by students and parents. Certain classes aren't offered throughout the year, for example, Chinese classes aren't available in the Summer semester or Winter semester only in the Fall or Spring semester. Some of the teachers are nice and encourage students to continue in the major they want. Other teachers are rude and talk about things that aren't part of the discussion in the classroom.
Personally, I've had a very successful transition due to CSI's curriculum. I think that their on-campus resources are extensive and they offer a lot to students. In my current major I found that many of my classes were tailored to modern news. For example, in one of my history lectures, the professors would start of by showing a clip of current events. They then connected those current events to the lesson. I can only speak for myself but I believe that was the main reason why I received an A- in that class. CSI does very well at tailoring to their demographic.
The CUNY college of Staten island is an pretty average school. The prices are more affordability than a private or ivy league college. The campus is very big and has a lot of places for study. The campus includes outdoor seatings, and indoor ares to further the education beyond the classroom. Their is free tutoring at all hours of the day 7 days a week. The campus has professors that come from universities such as NYU and private schools such as Saint Johns. The college of Staten island is a college where people go to class and than go home, it is not a "social" school. Therefore the people who attend this school is looking for ways to better themselves, not wasting time.
