Well, LaGuardia is a very DIVERSE college that’s located in Long Island City, Queens, Ny. 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. You see so many different people from all walks of life. The atmosphere in the school is beautiful. Additionally, around the school there so many different little job opportunities that you can work and get experience. My favorite part of LaGuardia is the Veteran's office. The people that work at the veteran office, including Daryl Griffin, are pleasantly competent and work very hard to help you, even after graduation. Thank you!

Diversity, Support, and Opportunity. Oh boy! It may be that because this is my second chance to complete the nursing program that i really appreciate this college. I see so many different people from all walks of life. The atmosphere in the school is beautiful. It is not based on outward appearance but Character. I get to meet people i wouldn't usually get a chance to have a conversation with. The staff is professional and provides resources and encouragement. I feel Accepted here for real. I Do Not feel judged on income or race or religion. I live in Brooklyn,so going to LAGCC feels like a getaway to a productive and resourceful opportunity.
Laugaurdia was okay. I didn’t feel like the teachers were really into teaching me or that they even cared about their students. There’s so many students that most faulty don’t remember my name. However, the school has a lot of extra activities and clubs which I think is amazing!
