Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.

City College Student Reviews

3 College Junior

Athletics: Students have their own activities in the campus and not all of them are sports related, or even if they are, they are different kind of sports not really equipment provided by the school like lacrosse and stuff.

3 College Junior

Computers: During busy hours, it is very hard to find an available computer because the staff closes a number of rooms with computers in them for no apparent reason.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: It is hard to get anything unless you really push for it. The competition is quite strong too because of the number of students.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Everybody is accepted and it only depends on the individual whether he/she decides to be separated from the others.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's not enough dining places around the campus. You would have to go off campus and hike a number of blocks before you could see restaurants.
