3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We lack nearly all team spirit when it comes to supporting our athletes.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: So much diversity. It's fun to end up being the only white person in your class sometimes.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: It's okay. Nothing special, nothing really fancy either.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We're located in the middle of a huge city. The "locals" could care less about us.

College Sophomore

Majors: Haven't needed to declare any sort of major yet, only just finished freshmen year.

College Sophomore

Majors: Have yet to have any sort of internships. No major for the credit to go towards.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't really try to apply for aid, mainly because I didn't qualify for anything.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've only visited once. It's nowhere near campus and is literally next to another college that's not our school...

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Hahahhaha, what campus dinning? Oh wait, you mean that tiny cafeteria with not very good food...

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is almost no on-campus, so nearly everyone lives off campus. It's New York City folks, where would they put the dorms...

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lecture classes are gigantic but smaller classes all seem to be under 30 students which means you can still get to know your professors.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I haven't really had to deal with any of those offices that handle those kinds of things but from what I've heard from older friends, they're not the best at their job...

College Sophomore

Academics: I haven't really actually declared a major yet, currently I'm just considering the Arts programs.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: For an inner-city commuter school, it has a hell of a lot to offer.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They're not half bad. Most are actually pretty nice. Don't know about the sororities though.

College Junior

Campus Dining: Hunter College does not provide dining options at their housing facilities.

Campus Housing: Housing at Hunter College is extremely convenient and affordable. The social atmosphere is inviting and the living conditions are comfortable.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: pretty much nonexistent. i think there is only 3 sororities in hunter. i have no idea.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are more girls than guys, so dont come here expecting to find you future husband! SOME of the guys are cute and SOME of the girls are cute. It would be nice to have more eye candy, but we cant have it all. If you want to see attractive people...and possibly meet some attractive people you would need to go out of hunter for that and trek around the city. Theres literally 1 cute boy on every block.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: HUnter is very diverse! you will find someone of every background here. Black, white, spanish, asian, indian, christian, jew, atheist...satanist. This is one of the reasons why I like hunter.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: You get what you pay for. I cant really complain about the academics since i had a fair share of good teachers, but since Hunter has a low tuition, the resources in the school is limited and it can be a strain.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: They have a variety of majors to choose from and many electives, so everyone will find something they love

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hunter is alright. Its nothing special to be honest. When you come here dont expect to be bombarded with friendly people, because its not like that here. Since its a commuter school some people keep to themselves or already have clique formed so they're not quick to make new friends. Everyone here isn't anti social but if you meet someone lively, for the sake of god stick to them because the chances that you will meet someone else who is will to becomes friends with you is 1 in 1000. Hunter has a fair share of good and bad teacher. Before you choose your classes make sure to go on rate your professor so that you wont be stuck with a shitty teacher.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I dont think that a degree from hunter speaks volumes. No big companies recruit from here so if you want a good job you have to go out and look for it yourself.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Theres so much that you can do in NYC. Theres a lot of bars in the city, especially downtown. Theres parties at Hunter, but they're not so great. If you want to go to a good party you would have to look elsewhere.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, Hunter College is great if you are seeking a quality education at an affordable price. The Hunter experience is one that includes making friends from around the world, learning from top-notch professors, and having the opportunity to intern and work for great New York-based companies.

While most students bemoan the fact that Hunter is a commuter school that limits their college experience in some way, others tend to appreciate being able to pay for school without having to take out extensive loans, which makes up for not having a sprawling campus or on-campus accommodations. While Hunter definitely does its part in ensuring that students who pass through the doors (or turnstiles) are knowledgeable enough about the world to succeed once they graduate, Hunter students are also expected to take an active role in making their college experience as rewarding as possible. Be prepared for intense classes that require independent preparation. Don't forget to visit Career Development Services to find ways to jump-start your career through internships; also, join an organization that interests you, and always take initiative to make your Hunter experience as good as you want it to be.
