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!

I like LaGuardia college for many reasons. Most of all I met there the friendliest and most helpful professors and counselores. It also has very convenient location with many options to commute. It's very student orientated and paing attention to their needs. It's also most affordabe one among the others in the city. The college operates long hours so everyone can find the most accurate time of classes or come visit school office for any paperwork. In addition to that, school offers on campus child care for students with children which is very affordable and very convenient I helpful. This is the most right place to study in the New York City.
LaGuardia Community College is an amazing school that really cares for their students. They support their students in everything. All the resources are right in front of us, and it is our choice to choose between using them or not. LaGuardia trains the students to be stronger and ambitious. The rates of transferring to 4 year school are high!
