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 loved absolutely everything about this campus! The campus itself feels like what every young child imagines it to be. In NY campuses are small and isolated. QC however is huge! There's a great big lawn, a fountain, game room, diner, lunchroom, art gallery, gym, track etc. There is a diverse amount of classes and majors available throughout a term with many great professors. On Mondays and Wednesday they have Free Hour which gives you the opportunity to engage in campus and student life activities. Overall this school was amazing and offered everything you would need to have a fulfilling college life.
My overall experience at Queens College is mostly positive. The professors are helpful and really care about each of their students. The class sizes are relatively small and promote individualized learning. Also, the campus is filled with helpful resources for whatever it is that a student needs. The administrative staff members are always personable and patient. The campus is very diverse and strikes me as a very inclusive place representing many different cultures. Aesthetically, the campus landscape is beautiful and always well kept, clean and smoke-free. I feel safe walking on campus at any time of night and always see security roaming, ensuring my safety. I am very pleased to be attending Queens College and can't wait to graduate with a bachelors from this prestigious school .
