CUNY Hunter College Reviews
The staff is friendly, helpful and kind and the professors always go out of their way to ensure that their pupils are excelling in their work. I have never experienced such engaged classes and it felt like a true privilege to be a part of this campus. Hunter’s opportunities keep a growing drive within me to achieve my goals as a college student. There are many programs that are available for college students, and if you truly work hard for them, they can be applicable to you. My Hunter experience has been amazing and I would never want to attend another university!
Teachers and students are welcoming. I feel safe there. Workers in the offices, either it be financial aid or admissions are also very helpful from my experiences and they are all so genuine! The student government provides so much to the students which results in you being either well fed or well equipped for the day. I've been blessed to receive nourishments that gave me a boost to continue the day or energy to return home since I live far from the campus. Praying that I get a dorm room next semester! I'm excited for it.
Overall my experience at Hunter has been positive. The positive experiences are the diversity of the student body. There are so many different facial and ethnic backgrounds and everyone seems to get along. Also, the LGBTQ community is strong in Hunter and are completely accepted. The professors are also very sharp. With few exceptions, the professors really show they care. The negatives have to do mostly with the bureaucracy. Getting things done at Hunter is so slow. Many times it requires doing the same thing multiple times. Paperwork submitted multiple times is the norm. The offices not communicating with each other is very regular unfortunately. Most times one office has no idea what the other offices are doing or have done regarding students although they are all supposedly using the same computer system.
