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 most beneficial factor about attending a CUNY school, I would have to say is the tuition cost for education. It is no question that city schools provide the most affordable programs. Regarding, Hunter College in particular, besides the expense, the location was important for me. It's pretty much centrally located in the city with public transportation all around and easy access to local shops of all sorts for any basic necessities. Because it is in the city, everything seems fast pace and for some that is fine as we have families and jobs we have to take care of at the same while acquiring a degree but for other's that may be the issue. It would be useful to have tutor's and/or extra curricular programs offered with flexible schedule's to accommodate everyone at Hunter.
It is my first year at Hunter and the place is amazing. Everyone seems so nice from the professors to the students. Everyone is so helpful. If I ever need help or am concerned with something, I can just ask and get help.
Review CUNY Hunter College
Some of the best resources, faculty and in the center of the city. If you're a transfer student, or if this is your first college, you've chosen well.
Hunter College is a great environment for learning. Social and academic skills are learned here. Professors at Hunter College are decent. Overall, I love the school.
The professors are the best! The antisocial people need to change! Thats the worse part about the school
Hunter College is a great CUNY but the commute can be really annoying. The 6 train is often delayed or crowded so lateness is a common issue for students. Each class is different depending on the teacher and the nature of the class, but for the most part, I enjoy my time at Hunter.
Hunter College is extremely diverse and offers many classes geared towards different majors and minors. Also there's many clubs and sports teams. I'd like to see smaller classes because sometimes classes can get crowded.
The school is very diverse. The is a big focus on community and education here. This place feels like home to everyone.
Great Environment and opportunities. Campus food is great, the campus is clean and the best of everything is the location.
Plenty of programs for people looking for a career once their parents are satisfied that their kids went to college. 60 programs to choose from, including the elite Nursing program that does it's clinicals at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan. The professors are demanding but aren't condescending like in a community college. The three buildings are connected by bridges and the school is just as diverse as the city of New York. Most importantly !!! the school is super affordable, 3k and change a semester for an amazing education, my friends in Long Island University Brooklyn Campus all want to transfer to Hunter College.
The school is small, but have a decent amount of students. Since the school is small, it makes it easier to make it to each class on time.
It's a bureaucratic nightmare and the building is in disrepair. Affordable education should not mean compromised education.
College is way different than high school. commutting from home was the worst part. But freshman experience definitely made an impression on me, I have learned alot from Professors and classmates. Hunter College however is one of the best Cuny schools. Very competitive and goal oriented. Campus life is great.
Hunter college is a great college. The college strongly focuses on career development, with multiple career events in a week, a very helpful aspect of Hunter College. The college has a very nice environment and helps with a focused works life. A negative aspect of Hunter is that it does not contribute to a great work-life balance, in my opinion its because of the fact that Hunter College does not really have a campus, people really do not have a place to be together and hang out; Hunter should have more places on its campus that attracts students to relax and get together. Overall Hunter College is a great college for a student to continue his or her higher education.
Hunter College is a great school that offers a wide range of coursework as well as the support you need not only to successfully navigate your undergraduate career, but also to set you up to succeed in the future. Hunter College provides support through its staff and its services. Specifically, Hunter College has advisors that can assist with general questions and guide you along your academic path, and also department-specific advisors that can assist you with inquiries regarding your major or minor. Hunter College's services include its vast libraries and online databases, that you can utilize as a current student or as an alum, free of charge. There is also a Career Development Services center that can assist you with writing a professional resume, practicing for interviews, and obtaining a job or internship. Overall, Hunter College is a great school that will support you in mastering your coursework and set you up to succeed once you graduate.
Professors are wonderful and truly want you to succeed. The school is also reasonably clean. I just wish escalators weren't always broken and the elevators were faster.
Review CUNY Hunter College
Even though I just attended CUNY Hunter College for one semester so far, I really like this school in many aspects.
Hunter College is at the heart of the city. I enjoy that there are various things to do when you have a gap in your schedule. We can go to the local pet store, eating different cultural cuisine, or just hang by the school terrace. It is a safe environment filled with a wide diversity of students. I would recommend this school to everyone.
To start off, CUNY Hunter College is a commuter school, which means that the community within the college is dispersed throughout the boroughs of New York. In terms of academics, I find that classes vary in terms of enrichment based on the styles of different professors. The college is very diverse, and you can see that as you walk in the hallways or participate in classes. The campus is a little antique, although it adds character. In terms of dorming and my experience with the Brookdale campus, it is very outdated as well. However, the price of dorming in the city outweighs the negatives of the physical state of the dorm. The food around the campus and in the school's cafeteria is generally on the expensive side. Overall, I would give it a 2.5/5 rating.
