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.
Review CUNY Hunter College
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.
The education here is great. The teachers know what they are talking about, there are a lot of resources, and it is an affordable education! The school is located by Central Park East and the 6 train takes you directly to the school. Most students commute to school because living on the upper east side can be pricey, but you're in NYC so not living by school isn't a big deal.

The administration and registering for classes can be a nightmare. I have waited on 1-2 hour long lines at the office of admissions and financial aid several times - usually due to an error or oversight by the school. Registering for classes can also be a nightmare since only 1 person does class registration (if she does not like you or she is in a bad mood - good luck!).
