My experience in this accredited college was a seamless transition from high school. Hunter offers a plethora of majors to choose from as well as different clubs to keep students engaged. There are also activities and events held on campus. The workload may be overwhelming at times but I regard it as excellent preparation for graduate school and an opportunity to challenge myself. The location of Hunter is convenient; it is located in the city so your choices don't fall short when it comes to food. Hunter has a library on nine floors. My complaint is that when you attend Hunter no one tells you anything unless you ask many, many questions! I know several people who took the incorrect class for their major, wasting time and money. Additionally, I feel that in large lecture halls with more than 100 students, there isn't a chance to receive individualized attention. The classroom size should be smaller so professors can focus on every students' needs and struggles.

CUNY Hunter is a commuter school so most people are in and out. It's even that much more important to take the initiative in this school. Making friends is not going to be as simple as possibly in other schools. Going to Hunter is rewarding because the diversity of NYC is in your fingertips! My freshman year, I made three friends. One Indian, one Korean, and one Italian. We all went on a date to have Thai food (my first time!) and it was amazing. Hunter has such a variety of people that uniting us can be problematic but I believe that if they put their best efforts, and find a common denominator, the school will be much better.
Hunter is a great school, you are continuously challenged, and SOME of the professors are great. They just opened up an AMAZING tutoring center on the 7th floor library which is free and has helped me soo much!
The only thing that really gets in the way of this school is their financial office, bursar, registrar (technically the most important ones), but from my experiences they have tried to solve it adequately. I LOVE the diversity n this school, which was one of the main reasons I chose this school, besides their great in-state tuition.
Food at Hunter can be a bit expensive, which I heard is because everything is kosher, but their regular fries, wraps, and chicken teriyaki are great.
