I transferred to Lehman after struggling in a different college for two years, and it was the best decision of my life! I loved the campus, the beautiful location, and then the help that I received from everyone when I was transferring. The professors are all so amazing and understanding of students, and the work load feels like a challenge, but in the best way! I feel like I'm finally learning what I'll need to be successful. I love the support that the students give one another as well, and I'm so happy with the grades that I'm getting as well. It helps that the school is very diverse and that you're able to meet people of all backgrounds and of all ages as well. Everyone is amazingly friendly, I would recommend this college to anyone!

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!
I love Lehman college...and it’s only my second semester! The professors are ALL so engaged in their teaching. They are very personable with each student and you can tell they care about the student community. The school is beautiful and clean. The perfect environment for students.
