CUNY York College Reviews

York College has very much potential in being a decent school, but unfortunately the school has many areas to improve on. For one, the staff is the worst I've ever seen in any academic institution thus far. Definitely not all of the faculty suffers from this, but most importantly the ones in Financial Aid and the Bursar Office need improve. Most act is if "having a poor attitude" is apart of the job. Almost all of the employees show genuine rudeness, unprofessionalism, and disinterest towards the student. They get frustrated if you cannot understand something the first time, and aren't afraid to insult your intellect. They are frustrated with doing their own job-being the guide for the student. They are very dismissive and lack any patience. Most times information accuracy depends on who you speak to. And often you will be on your own with coming up with your own information.

Other than that, the school can definitely work on improvements to their library.

Although, it was quite some time ago, my experience at CUNY York was pretty great mentally and physically. It provided growth through my teens into early adult years. The staff were extremely supportive especially my SEEK advisor and a few of my teacher. I have a disability which sometime required extra time and extra mental strength. With God center in my life and very supportive mentors, advisors and teachers I was able to accomplish my goal of graduating. Unfortunately, not with the grades I was aiming for but I am still proud to be a graduate of York college.
I'm not sure what changes were made or how many staff I personally had the pleasure of connecting with are still on payroll. One thing is for sure, the support is definitely there for an undergraduate.
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.
