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.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Going to school in the city and living at home allows you to live a life separate from campus life.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is very large with a lot of outdoor space -grass, seats. A lot of different types of libraries are available -general, music, science.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There are teams but people just do not have time to focus on sports when they have classes and work.

4 College Junior

Academics: Class sizes are average, no lecture halls. A variety of courses are available.

4 College Junior

Academics: The are over fifty majors offered. Class sizes are decent with a few lecture halls depending on your major. Typically 120 credits to graduate during which you meet certain requirements. Four classes is considered full-time, which is great so you can work while in school or do other activities. Engineering and Psychology are very popular majors at my school.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: These questions all pertain to out of state schools with campuses and dorm rooms/housing. CUNY schools do not provide these things and for the price, I don't think anymore really cares or is affected by it. If people going to CUNY schools could or wanted to go an out of state school, these things would matter but they do not when living in the city. We take public transportation, everything is usually in walking distance, etc.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It was my first time applying for aid so it had some kinks but I presume it will be easier the next time.

College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing recently became available, I haven't seen it so I have no information to provide. I travel from home whenever I have class and not interested in living in housing.

College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not involved in a sorority so I cannot give an opinion. My main focus is to get my education as quickly as possible and spend as little time on campus as possible.

College Junior

Nightlife: I don't live close to my school so I don't know or care about the nightlife.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The cafeteria is open most of the night or you bring food from home. You may not even need to bring anything to eat depending on how long/often you are at the school for classes each day.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: I'm just returning to school after 6yrs so I don't know about or pay attention to the guys and girls at my school. People have all kinds of schedules, you might not see the same people all the time. People are also very varying in ages being that it's a CUNY school in the city. The goal for most people going to the school is to get an education, not to be extremely social because when you leave, you go home -not to a dorm where you have to interact with the same people in your classes.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: try and apply for as many grants as possible

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.
