    My experience at Queens College was wonderful. The campus definitely feels like a traditional campus and there is a lot of major options. I think Queens College has many exceptional professors and quality of education. And the views are just incredible! One downside is that many of the buildings are outdated and need to be renovated. Some buildings are being renovated so that something. Another downside is that all the departments are scattered around and it makes it difficult to communicate because you have to go from building to another to get an answer sometime. I think the overall college environment is great. There are some really good clubs and many varieties of food to choose from and the commute is pretty good as well.

    #1 for teaching. This school will get you a job teaching ANYWHERE. You will leave more prepared than you would at any other schools. It's already known the best teaching positions on Long Island prefer city teachers, BUT it's especially Queens College teachers. I'm so happy I went here because compared to my other friends who became teachers, I am WAY ahead. I graduated two years ago and I miss it everyday! Most supportive staff, the whole school is all about kindness and togetherness. I made a family at queens college. I am so lucky.
    Queens College has a very diverse campus. You'll meet people from all over the world! This makes it a great place to study because you'll find people that share similar interests as you, and you can become more engaged in the college life. The academic aspect is amazing as well. There are over 700 majors to choose from. Many of these programs are world renowned, and they're engaged in helping students attend higher levels of education. Another highlight of Queens College is the resources it offers to its students. There are tutoring centers, Counseling services, athletic opportunities, and so much more. It's definitely a college to look out for when applying.
