CUNY Graduate School & University Center Graduate Reviews

12 reviews
The best thing about the Graduate Center is its sense of community. It does not have the destructive sense of competition like Chicago U. does, which just breads individualism and back stabbing. It encourages students to cooperate and work together, building a very good sense of camaraderie.

Its worse thing has to be the lack of an international view. The school is too self centered, mainly being New York focused. Also in terms of diversity, while the school hires underserved communities as african american and latino, it does very poorly with asians and native americans.

An amazing network of students, professors, and resources. There's no other institution in the world like it. I have access to resources on numerous campus's across New York City, Museums, Libraries, Cultural Institutions, etc.
I feel like I am getting a good education at a great price. The professors are all very experienced and accomplished, many having taught at much larger and prestigious institutions. I do wish it were easier to really get involved, but that may just be on me living so far from the school (approximately 2 hours).
