3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It would be nice to live on campus if more people stuck around on campus.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I rarely go off campus for food, but Dunkin Donuts is ok.

3 College Senior

Transportation: I have to take 2 buses to get to QC, but it's okay. No need for a shuttle, although the school is petitioning it.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: My friend lives right across campus because dorms are too expensive.

4 College Senior

Computers: It's better now than last semester. Before, if you rate professors, you get printing money. Now, you can print all you want on the 2nd floor of the library. (I think this will only be temporary though!)

2 College Senior

Athletics: Our athletic teams are the knights. That's all I know.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's nice that we have some green space (considering it's NY) but there is barely any fun student activities. The school offers talks, research presentations, book events, but that's all academic. There should be parties and social events that do not revolve around key speakers and resume building workshops.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: No smoking on campus anymore. Can't post fliers on the quad trees. I think that's pretty fair.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Frats are barely existent (much like a social life on campus). This makes perfect sense seeing how QC is a commuter school and most people have a job/family besides attending classes.

3 College Senior

Academics: The workload really depends on your major. In psychology, you will be faced with large lecture halls while in sociology there are smaller classrooms. There are not many job or internship opportunities. You can get research experience (become an RA) if you volunteer at a lab or get teaching experience (become a TA) if you help in a lab course. If you meet the right professor, he or she will offer credits for your work.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Financial aid was done online. When I had to visit my school's office, there were long lines. I paid for tuition, but received some reimbursement from the school in the form of a check.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There always food carts or trucks that are near campus.

Greek Life: Greek life has some presence on campus but if your not involved its not a big deal.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is pretty safe and security is always helpful.

Weather: Winter can be harsh on some of the structures. However, the school is quick to get everything fixed.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus so I don't know about dorm life.

3 College Junior

Academics: there are lots of opportunities for study aboard.

3 College Junior

Athletics: School sports don't seem to be a large part of campus life.

College Junior

Nightlife: I don't know much about the campus nightlife but there are always flyers around for parties.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I don't really know much about the administration policies on campus.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The campus has a great layout with plenty of areas to relax and study. During finals the school offers massages and puppy therapy in the library for the students.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are multiple computer labs available on campus and just recently printing became free in the library.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The campus is very diverse and is extremely accepting.

College Junior

Scholarships: Applying for financial aid is easy. However, when there happens to be a problem with paperwork it takes a lot of time to get the problem sorted out.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Extremely diverse in every single classroom

Students looking for an affordable college with decent academics may find Queens College to be the place for them. However, students looking for loads of involvement in student life, with a particular sense of community, may not find it at Queens College. The fact that QC is a commuter school causes a lack of communal feeling between the students. For those who are coming to Queens with little or no friends, it is extremely helpful to join a Greek organization. Other students have found themselves to be comfortable and happy on campus with a few close friends. Sometimes it just takes a little work to find your niche.

According to other students, Queens is the ideal place to be—from academics to the social life to adequate facilities to students simply feeling satisfied with their college experience. Queens offers so much and has all that one could ask for as a college student. For students whose desired college experience consists of a large amount of partying and going to bars and pubs, QC is not the best campus for these activities. Overall, QC seems to be geared toward students looking for a certain balance with college life, where students are generally serious about their studies and basically go to college to get their degree, while somewhat getting involved in other activities.
