CUNY Lehman College Reviews
Lehman had many amazing professors overall, and a variety of courses for any of your education needs and prospective career fields. What stood out most was the overall campus experience, even down to the old architecture in the buildings mixed with the newer contemporary buildings. The Lehman campus itself gave authenticity to a college campus that you don't always get from a commuter school! The classes were always exciting and I learned a lot in the field of Journalism and theatre. Lastly if I had a chance to do my undergrad all over again I most definitely would!
During Covid-19, the transition from campus to online classes was very smooth! The teachers all seemed very concerned about students who did not have access to internet or blackboard. In addition, they were very understanding with assignment submissions and attendance. The material and lectures were not disrupted by the transtion.
Before COV-19, I took a class where half of the course is online and the other half is on campus. I would say the professors that have gotten used to teaching online courses were well organized with their announcements and assignments. However, during COV-19 some professors had trouble transitioning their on-campus class to online. The only problem is that for every class, your syllabus is your guide for the whole semester. There were so many changes done to the syllabus, making it hard for the students to be on top of both their classwork and test dates. Besides, the professors I have taken responded very quickly to their emails when it comes to answering questions. Hopefully, this upcoming fall semester the professors will be more prepared for online classes through training that Lehman college provides.
