I have enjoyed my time here at LaGuardia. You meet a lot of people who you can build lasting connections with. There are lots of great professors who are passionate about teaching & are great at it. The ASAP program at Lagcc is so helpful & I was fortunate enough to have gotten a great advisor. I like that LaGuardia is the home or rather second home to many international students. There are so many clubs to join, lots of tasty food options near the school or in the cafe & the campus itself is kept clean. I can say that for a 2 year LaGuardia is great. Although I find it hard to have friends here because many of the students are non traditional & are always on the go, I have met a lot of great people. The wellness center and writing center are resourceful. The library is great. You can relax throughout the campus.Overall I’d say LaGuardia is a great school to come to, you will meet many great students & Professors alike. You leave with more than what you came with. It’s worth it!

LaGuardia is a medium-sized community college in the heart of Long Island City, NYC. To me, this was great because it allowed me to get to know my teachers and peers. As a transfer student at LaGuardia, I had never met professors before that were so interested in making sure that one succeeds. At LaGuardia, my professors really cared and went the extra mile so that I wouldn't miss on opportunities to further advance my career. The diversity on campus is pretty awesome. There is inclusiveness all around and you get to learn about about many cultures and religions. There are tons of clubs, scholarship opportunities, and other financial services. Also, their social media (IG & FB) is pretty relevant and informative. I'm going to miss Chompy.
As an international student here, I feel very lucky to have joined LaGuardia Community College. In conjunction with CUNY System, it offers so many opportunities to us. It is just up to us to make effort to grab them. Also, being a computer science major, I am so happy to have been able to get part-time works such as computer lab assistant and tutoring in computer science. Also, there are internship opportunities like academic honors program to whoever that qualifies.
