I loved my professors are excellent people and professionals. I have so many complaints about administration, financial aid, loans offices, getting into classes is a nightmare every semester, everything takes a long time. I had to drop out do to mental health and went back I only needed one class to graduate. I went back school requirements changed them another 5 classes lol. I loath them very rude irresponsible administration. Still have not received my diploma after graduating because department head messed up. I had to write several appeals in order to fix this issue. Still fighting to get rid of classes, I withdrew during the mental health issues in 2015. I am over it might have to get a lawyer to fight for my rights. Just take my money let me go fudge. I absolutely liked small class sizes, reaseach and psychology department is good but not enough spots to get into.

I attend York Cuny College for 4 years. As an undergraduate student attending York College, I was able to become familiarize with students and teachers from different cultures. The professors were wonderful and very obliged to ensure students were challenged and educated while attending this college; overall the professors wanted the best from their students as well students wanted to prove they were and will be their best while being in attendance at York College. The effort many students put into studying and making the school was more than I expected; great support coming from classmates and professors. I enjoyed attending York College because it was a great experience and I was able to meet some wonderful people who have become good friends of mine.
Cuny is one of the most diverse colleges and I thoroughly enjoy the experience of diversity. It's also quite affordable. As it relates to changes I would like to see some of the various fees reduced and the breakdown of the institution's budget be made publicly available so that students can be engaged in what's happening with the institution and what changes and improvements to look forward to. At the moment, there are fees being charged each semester per student that no one knows where the funds go to or who said funds go to and its frustrating to see your tuition increase and have things listed on your bill that you never use or never got access to but you're paying for same.
