3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The school has many things around it so you are never bored and can always find what you need. However, parking is a great hassle.

4 College Junior

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: limited variety but kosher options exist

Off-Campus Housing: Everything is good, with the exception that its way over priced for the quality....a small studio apt can easily run you $1300 unless you find a "rare gem" that may run you $900 monlty

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of good options, some of which are surprisingly cheap for NYC. few block walk to some of the best Pizza in NYC, variety of ethnic foods.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: expensive like everything else in NYC, I live in Jersey but have looked into living on campus, best thing available is a single occupancy studio apt, which is kind of cool. Its not campus housing either...its campus affiliated housing.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Surprisingly a wide variety of majors for a small college and great internship and opportunities a lot of study abroad opportunities as well.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: My professors are great and are very experienced in their fields....they provide a lot of research and field work opportunities for the students Brooklyn college was referred to at the "poor mans Harvard" for a reason.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: A lot of diversity and people socialize freely with people of other groups.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Professors and the academics at this school are excellent. The student body are rude, disrespectful and could care less about school spirit. Very few people participate in class or events. This is my third college (Film school at Valencia state and undergrad BA at Stony Brook) and by far the worst college atmosphere. Its in the middle of the hood (which I am from,and proud of just giving people the heads up) most students are Brooklyn natives so not much diversity as far a region. Great ethnic diversity......I wish the male students will learn how to pull up their pants and stop using the N-Word I hear it so much I want to throw up. Over all if Academics is all you care about this college is good for you, I you want the full college experience with the school spirit and all St.Johns and Columbia U's are the only schools NYC has to offer in that regard. I would recommend Rutgers (New Brunswick Campus)(Stay far away from Newark campus) if you want the college experience, good academics and close proximity to NYC.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not a big Greek presence and like everything else no one cares.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: No one cares about sporting events. The female Basketball team made it to the conference championship and people couldn't care less. They discontinued football decades ago. The teams are pretty good but the student body doesn't care a lick.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are many options for transportation, just keep in mind the subway is almost always subject to delays, you have to leave extra early just to be on time and there is only one line subway line goin to and from the college, but they also have buses.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: I can always get a computer in the library when needed, they have 4 floors with computer labs and some in the internet cafe although in busy hours you may be limited to 90 minutes at a time but its rarely very busy.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: There are rules, depends on who the authority figure is on whether they want to enforce them or not

College Junior

Scholarships: I am an international student studying in the US and was not allowed to apply for financial aid.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's not terrible. There is a small shopping area such as Target which is very convenient and a few other stores but there are no attractions and no night life.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: There are no issues with drugs on campus, I wouldn't even say there is a drug scene. I'm sure there are a few students here and there who probably sell/buy but I haven't heard of any.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: As far as I'm aware the only student discount is given by Quizenos. The type of food options is not terrible. Some are a father walk and when you don't have much time, you have no choice but to choose something in the immediate area.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The two separate campuses are a walking distance so that's convenient. There is also 2 buses that stop right near the campus as well as three trains that are a short walking distance from campus as well as a few other buses. Overall I would say getting to campus is convenient.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I haven't had any trouble with financial aid so far.

4 College Junior

Computers: There is a lot of computers available on campus to use, however during midterms and finals it can be tough to find one so only then might it be necessary to bring your own. Also, during those times, when so many students are on the network it tends to slow down.
