My experience at York College is great! My view towards the college was first negative and I did not want to attend it, but i was wrong! I love the college, the students are respectful and are well behaved and i was able to make great friends here who are press onward on getting good grades. The professors are great and through their teaching one is able to learn and understand. Being a Pre-med student at York College, i have gain educational knowledge and i will continue to.
Review CUNY York College
I love that the professors here are interested in their students. In high school, people painted college to be scary and that your professors in the future would not care to learn your names, but it is quite the contrary here at York. Professors are involved in student activities and have a wide range of resources they can introduce to you if they cannot assist you with any given issue, course related or not. One thing I would like to see improve on campus is the consistency of the guidelines of courses, or as we call academic advisement. If I go to general advisement, they will tell me different from that of departmental advisement and this may have a lasting effect on students in regards to their expected graduation year.
York College is a very warming environment for students to attend classes and focus on their studies. My overall experience at York College for the past 3 years has been wonderful because of the close community. The professors are always willing to help and many professors try to create an environment for their students to be comfortable and at ease not only with them but with the other students in the class. It has been easy for me to approach my professors with any questions I have had after class. The professors help the students during their office hours as well. I have had some difficulties when it comes to signing up for classes as there aren't many options of selecting times that are good for one. I would recommend one to attend York College if they know what they want to do career wise. Overall, my experience with York College has been a warm one with some difficulties here and there when it comes to scheduling classes.
