3 College Senior

Athletics: I attend school at night, therefore, I rarely see teams being played.

4 College Senior

Athletics: We have tennis, soccer, softball and baseball teams as well as track, basketball, swimming and many other sports. Since classes on campus run until night sometimes it's hard to fit in the chance to go to games but when it's possible school spirit is high.

5 College Senior

Facilities: We have the Apex which is the athletic center of school as well as a new student life building for campus clubs. The Library is four stories tall and there are plenty of areas outside for students to hangout in the warmer climates like the quad and the field. We have a theater where many performers come and have shows on campus.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Unlike other schools in a big city Lehman feels like an outside world because it has a rich history. There are many different academic programs and a more diverse set of programs are added though out the years such as a new pre-law program. Some courses are offered for both graduate and undergraduate students so the classes are mixed with both sets of students.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: All the students are very different and each have their own sets of styles and interest. There's no social hierarchy like in high school and most people are open to meeting and talking to each other.

College Senior

Greek Life: Only recently have I noticed greek life on campus they aren't very active on campus so it's hard to rate them.

College Senior

Campus Housing: There aren't dorms on campus and the few dorms offered are given to international students.

4 College Senior

Academics: I'm a double major in English Literature and History, the professors in both departments are helpful though they're two of the most writing intensive majors as well as reading and research intensive so be prepared for a lot of work.

3 College Senior

Academics: Not all of the courses that are on the website are offer at the school which makes choosing very hard especially if your set on one class that isn't offered. The overhauls in the departments makes it difficult to have professors more than once because they would be there one semester and gone the next.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: New York City always has something going on and there's always something to do.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It's the Bronx when it involves living somewhere the price will never be right for a student almost everyone either lives with their parents, spouses, or roommates.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: There's no dorms on my campus and most students commute to campus. Many are adult learners and those who are underage will most like drink off campus. The school has the NYPD monitoring activity throughout campus and ID is required to enter some facilities on the grounds. The Campus has a no smoking policy so they enforce that strictly because their is both a daycare facility on campus and a 2 high schools and an elementary school next to the campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The cost - it's the cheapest in the city.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Most are older students with children.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: I haven't had an internship opportunity yet. I will be doing a clinical internship at the school in the fall.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, I believe there are no on campus housing.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: It has the Bronx Zoo and NY Botanical Gardens nearby and the subway leads into the city.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not that many options, there's a subway, and corner stores.

College Senior

Transportation: no transportation would love transpiration to the train station at night

3 College Senior

Scholarships: could do better for grad students

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: none that i have seen

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is really NO seen drug or alcohol use.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home, not on my own.

Academics: There are some really great and knowledgeable professors here, just do your work and everything will be fine. All registration process is fairly simple, just look at the website, and visit the school and there is loads of information. The most popular study area is the library.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Lehman offers an incredible college experience, despite the fact that it isn’t a boarding campus. Lehman’s history is rich (it was originally called Hunter Uptown and used to be a site for the UN), and the campus is gorgeous and regularly featured in commercials (the most recent one being a Verizon commercial). Students who wish to succeed academically can do so at Lehman because the professors are dedicated and passionate, and students have the freedom to mold their own curriculum. Each department has its own distinct personality; for example, the English department is known for having quirky students. There are also honors programs in each department (for those who are academically ambitious).

At Lehman, there are so many opportunities to take advantage of, such as the CUNY/Paris Exchange, which is a study abroad program that Lehman students can apply for if they have taken three semesters of French. The cost of tuition is the same as CUNY, and students enroll at the University of Paris and can either rent or do a home-stay. Students on financial aid have their tuition covered when studying abroad, and Lehman students are eligible to apply to all CUNY study abroad programs. Students can apply for internships or jobs through Lehman, and can join many volunteering programs (such as Peer Health Exchange), join any of the various clubs on campus, or start their own (submit a proposal, and find a faculty sponsor and at least 10 members in order for the club to be approved). Students at Lehman have access to all of CUNY’s resources, as well as New York City’s resources (which many classes utilize); thus, the Lehman student learning playground isn’t confined to just campus—it extends to all of New York City.
