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.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: More girls than guys, guys are a little harsh

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Few options, just very expensive

3 College Junior

Nightlife: None are affiliated with the school; all outside

3 College Junior

Athletics: We don't hear about sporting events at all.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life isn't a thing at Hunter

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's located in the heart of NYC which is amazing

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I have to send in countless forms every year

3 College Junior

Facilities: Too much of a commuter school for these things.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I am more scared of the city itself and what might happen( such as any type of explosions or massive killing) than what happens in campus. the campus is pretty safe to be in since there is people everywhere so I feel very comfortable and safe being there. the only problem that I am scared of that the employees need to be sure that everything should be under control such as elevators, installations needs to be inspected more often to be sure that there will not a harmful environment in school. also another scary thing that is not as related to campus is the subways I am scared being stuck underground or that there will be some type of malfunction from the trains ( like they always say) which they need to keep more of an eye on.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: I feel that the menu and the prices are very repetitive. I feel that they sell the same types of foods around campus, halal, Italian, sandwiches, and Asian. I feel like their prices are very expensive for the low quality, unhealthy foods that they sell. they do not put love into the food for the price it is worth and they do not give a good amount of food leaving one hungry after lunch. I feel like they need to make foods that are healthier for a price of student or at least make a lunch special where food will not be as expensive or make better quality of it.

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.
