Campus Strictness: oh will only get in trouble if you break a rule like bringing an animal/pet on campus or are acting as a threat to a student

4 College Junior

Academics: Being a bio major, there is an arrangement of classes that need to be taken in order to graduate. their are so many opportunities provided online and in the biology office,

4 College Junior

2 College Junior

Greek Life: barely any Greek activity on campus

3 College Junior

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: They are all very friendly and outgoing. They also offer help to those who need it.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity is seen throughout campus and everyone is accepted and respected.

4 College Junior

Academics: There are mostly education and liberal arts majors in my classes, despite my being a History/Cultural Studies major. Everyone usually has a interesting perspective to offer during discussions making for a more enriching experience. I have only been there for two and a half semesters (part-time), so I am still learning many things about what the school has to offer.

4 College Junior

Academics: The only reason it is not rated as the best, is a result of the bumpy process of registration with a new system introduced recently. As for the instructors, staff and faculty.... they are phenomenal.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: New York City is a great city, yet it is very distracting at times. Any and everything is available to do pretty much everyday of the week. Everyone has their own agenda, so noticing that one is a student without being told is pretty rare.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I feel that the Greek life is very advantageous for individuals after they graduate, more so than the social status they achieve in school. The network that is associated with the Greeks is endless- even for future students, legacy chapters.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: My campus is predominantly returning and transfer students over the age of 25. We all are working students atending school in the evenings and weekends to earn our respective degrees to enhance our current positions (mostly early childhood and liberal arts). We are not really concerned with the average things college students are involved with, clothes, bar hopping, campus life, etc. Everyone is on their own path, yet everyone is extremely friendly and generally happy to be in classes together.

City College may be small compared to the other universities in New York City, but it still kicks butt. City has many special attributes that most students won't find anywhere else, including the diversity, the crazy amount of scholarships available, the amazing fellowships and internships, and the professors. It may be a public college, but the professors who teach are still highly qualified. They hail from Ivy League schools and well-known private universities from around the United States to teach a dedicated bunch of City College students—students who are friendly, easy to talk to, and worth making friends with.
