My experience with Queens College has overall been fantastic! This college is very goal oriented, with their main focus on having you to succeed in life outside of the school environment. This place is filled with people who are from many cultures and backgrounds, allowing students to mix in and meet great friends who will last a lifetime. The classrooms are great and you have great professors who are willing to meet up with you for any struggles and problems you may have. Queens College is such a great college, with wonderful views of NYC from the Quad and with everyone I have met, I wouldn't change it for the world.
I am currently a freshman in queens college, and I'm really loving the atmosphere. Everyone is super friendly and diverse! The outdoor campus makes it a very stress free environment for everyone. We have festivals and art show cases every now and then where students can express themselves. Some professors even allow class outfit for some relaxation. Overall the campus and student life is amazing. I recommend completely.
