The professors at this college are very friendly, yet serious at the same time. You have a desire to actually show up to class because the professors at Queens College make learning very enjoyable. Professors at Queens College also allow students to be responsible for themselves, e.g. Handing in your work on time, without constantly pressuring you to do the assignment. It definitely is a great step after high school and in preparing for adulthood! Would recommend to anyone and everyone!
Queens College is one of the best CUNY schools, though some do not give it as much credit as they should. QC offers may opportunities for students concerning many majors without being concerned about age, race, gender, or any other form of identification. Though we may all wish the E or F trains stopped by QC, there are many ways to get around and to QC. QC offers a convenient shuttle bus that picks up in Jamaica, Queens, NY. The shuttle bus ventures to QC and even picks up and drops off at the off-campus building, Queens Hall. My only complaint about QC is about Queens Hall. It is very hard to sign up for classes and still have time to make it to those located in Queens Hall. It's impossible to leave a 9:15-10:30AM class on campus and make it to a 10:45AM class in Queens Hall. I try to avoid that building at all costs due to this. But it also holds me back from taking many of the classes I need.
I recently transferred to Cuny Queens College and it has been wonderful. The first thing that really drew me to Queens was the campus. The campus is beautiful, with really nice buildings and a beautiful view of the city. The students have been very nice and helpful in my classes, there is a sense of unity among peers as well as professors and faculty. I feel safe on campus and have not had any negative experiences with any other students. The only thing I would point out that is a negative would be the organization of academic advisors. When I was applying to attend classes at Queens I had to jump through hoops to get into the degree major I wanted and they did not make it easy for me, I was given a lot of mixed advice from different offices. Overall I would say Queens College is a great school and has been worth my investment so far.
