The College of Staten Island is a great, friendly community of a diverse range of students. People come to eager to learn and often collaborate on various projects, which allows for friendships and networking opportunities to develop. Professors are intelligent, knowledgeable, and encourage this community of working together and improving personal skills. There are plenty of activities and groups students can join to keep them involved in the community.
I had a wonderful experience. The student life was very active. They have many sports and club activities that will keep your interest. I use to travel from Brooklyn to Staten Island. I do not recommend travelling to CSI during the weekend. Transportation is very difficult and you might get to class an hour late.

I enjoy being with the Dance club and playing racquet ball during my breaks between classes. I also enjoyed a few professors in the Psychology department, like Prof. Frisina.
