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!

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.
I wish the stigma of junior colleges weren't so prevalent! Having come from a 4-year institution, I regret not going to a 2-year first. This school has really prepared me for life in a year that the higher tier schools haven't. The teachers are involved and there are numerous opportunities for personal growth and success.
