What i like most about Lehman is that there are always great opportunities to move ahead in academics. There are always professors, general staff and faculty that advertise and support the struggling student. These supports are not limited to academics, but extends all the way to financial struggles as well. Lehman is a great campus, however, there are always improvements to be made. One of the improvements I wish to see in Cuny Lehman is the extension of campus space. There is so much diversity on campus and more buildings that gear toward integrating this diversity would be fantastic!

the very divers and willing to help all there student to success. ehman College recently won recognition for its teacher education and coordinated freshmen programs. Lehman faculty members are highly credentialed and include world-renowned scientists, an Oscar-winning composer and the 2001-2003 U.S. Poet Laureate. Class size is small (13 on average), and undergraduate and graduate programs, already numbering 90, continue to grow (such as a new Bachelor in Business Administration degree and program in Computer Graphics and Imaging, and a new Social Work program). Lehmans 37-acre campus is safe and beautiful. Students pay the areas lowest tuition, but receive real value for their investmen
I like Lehman College, its campus takes you away from the hectic speed of the city, the tunnel helps you during tough weather, more than enough parking options for everyone, their programs are great and their professors (with a few as an exception) are amazing. But I feel like they are not made for the working adult, their system is guided around full-time "I have nothing else to do but go home" students. I dislike the fact that they never answer their phones, that they make me go in for even the slightest reason, wait even hours for assistance and end up having to run around the college for paperwork that could have simply been emailed to the department. Fix those minor issues and this school is the epitome of perfection for NYC colleges.
