I really like my college! The area around it is not the best, mostly because of construction going on in the area, the train is not that far from the buildings, and not to mention the Long Island Railroad too, but I enjoy the area. There's restaurants nearby, security patrols the campus, and the professors are amazing! I enjoy learning new material every single day! The staff from the multiple departments are very friendly. LaGuardia is also very diverse, people from all over the world study at LaGuardia and since the college is in Queens (with Queens being the most diverse borough in New York City) it's no surprise that the school is so diverse. I enjoy the different classmates I have in my different classes.
Review CUNY LaGuardia Community College
Fabulous! I consider that enrolling in LAGCC was one of the most appropriate and wonderful choices of my academic life. It's on account of teachers being so polite, curious and inspiring ; staff is willing to help anytime and peers making you feel the atmosphere of education.
I'm undergoing precious experience by attending LAGCC and would advise it to others, still stay in your choice. Overall it's an advise not force :-)
Professors and programs are way beyond your expectation of community colleges.

I am a Commercial Photography major and LAGCC's photo lab has better equipments than photo departments in famous private schools in the city. Outside guest speakers often surprise how motivated and knowledgable the students are, compare to competing photo/art schools.

Most of the admin offices are reasonable and nice.

Newly renovated library is just beautiful and pretty spacious. Great space to study.

School mind/spirit is really liberal, accommodated excelsior scholarship signing ceremony and had a head of Black Lives Matter for keynote address speaker for commencement.

Pretty proud of being a student at the No.1 diverse college in the US.
