5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I think Queens College is one of the most diverse schools if not in the city, in the country.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Queens College has an amazing campus. It can be overwhelming trying to get to certain buildings but it is the best way as a city kid to have the best of both worlds being in the city but still having a large campus. The school is extremely diverse, feels like a huge melting pot. I have had some issues with the offices such as admissions and bursar but it's like that at most schools. There is so many student activities offered, there should be no reason anyone should be bored. Most of the professors genuinely want to make sure the students are learning and helping them the best way they can. Overall, I do not regret transferring here and intend on enjoying my last couple of years here.

3 College Student

Academics: My program is TESOL and it's hard to stay in the program, but can be rejoicing

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: The cost of the food is not expensive, but ok.

3 College Student

Computers: They are ok, but when it's final time or around a certain time, they can be packed and hard to find a seat. Better to bring your own laptop to finish your assignments . Also the printing is not free; you need to pay at least a dollar for each print which you place in the card.

3 College Student

Transportation: Sometimes the buses are packed and you can't get in. But usually the buses are on time.

3 College Student

Scholarships: It's ok in this college, but I don't apply to financial aid

4 College Student

Campus Strictness: The college is great. If you do good in classes and don't flunk, then this college is for you!

3 College Junior

Athletics: I love my school and wish i could go to more events that the school does have but it very hard to attend some events because of my school classes and work schedule

3 College Junior

Majors: the advisors are helpful but they all differ from each other

3 College Junior

Majors: i plan to have an internship so i can get experience

College Freshman

Drug Safety: I wouldn't know the drug scene withing campus because I don't dorm but I do know some information from overhearing other students.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe in campus and near it during the time I'm there but in concerns of health I'm unaware. I travel to campus so I don't know the quality of service within the health department in college but I do know they seem welcoming.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I know there are sports within campus but I don't participate into them because I don't live in campus. But I do know there is emphasis in supporting and cheering the team.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I haven't applied towards greek housing because there isn't one in campus but there is a club that does some typical greek roles.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is great because there is alot to see and try. There is a variety of ethnic foods and ethnic stores that is different from the usual fast food. Taking a bus toward flushing will make it possible for anyone to take a train and go to Manhattan and enjoy the museums and other entertainments.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm not into the night life near my college so I wouldn't know what it is like but I do know it is far.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Campus is very diverse because it is in NYC so everybody is different. Ethnicity and religion is accepted because there is proof in club organizations and some courses based on it. Sexual orientation is accepted too because I have seen some in campus and don't seem restricted.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't dine outside of campus but from what I have seen it seems very reasonable. There is a varity of ethnic foods and the prices seem reasonable. I haven't seen student discount signs but I presume there is some offered. I would recommend the asian resturants because they are different from the usual chain restaurants.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: everyone are usually accepted, greeks life are always involved in the community and school events

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: queens college always has events on campus everyone is so friendly, attend Qc is one of the best experience i had as far.

Off-Campus Housing: everything is near by to easily access, its always safe to go out at night never felt scare

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: drugs aren't a big part of school, i haven't encounter any problem with this

5 College Sophomore

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.
