Academics: The curriculum and workload at my school is demanding. For the most part you do have to work hard for your grades. Most of the professors were great. I did have one professor that was totaly unfair. Most of the class had a hard time with the work and he was not helpful at all. I ended up withdrawing from the class and losing my money. I complained to the head of the deparment but I never did get a response. That was the one negative experience that I had.

Off-Campus Dining: There is not much to choose from. There is pizza, chinese food and a coffee chain. There are street food carts outside around campus that are good.

Campus Dining: The food on campus is unhealthy and expensive. A piece of chicken and a bottle of water is $12! Students asked for better options and they just opened a Nathans on campus. This is not giving us a healthier option.

Diversity: There seems to be a very diverse population in regard to ethinic/racial backgrounds, religion and sexual orientation. For the most part people are very accepting of this diversity. I can't say if the political beliefs are diverse or not.

Guys & Girls: There is a wide variety of looks & dress at my school. Most students dress casual with jeans, sneakers and T shirts. Others, like myself, attend classes in the evening and go straight from work so we are dressed in casual business attire.

Scholarships: To receive financial aid, I have to fill out the FASFA form every year. While I was working on my BA I received about half from TAP and Pell. Since my daughter graduated from college herself, I will no longer be receiving aid since I can no longer claim a dependent.

Facilities: I go to a commuter school so there is not a lot of campus life and social activities. It does however have a beautiful sprawing campus, which many commuter schools in NYC do not have. The students that attend my college are very diverse in background and cultures, which makes it a very interesting place to be. It also is very affordable and the quality of education is excellent.

Facilities: As I previously stated, the campus is green and sprawling but there are not many campus activities since it is a commuter school. The library is huge with three floors and the librarians are always helpful. I was always a part-time student because I work full-time, so I can't say much about things such as student hangouts and and campus events.

Campus Dining: They opened up a Nathan's instead of the main grill in the dining hall which is annoying to me because, honestly, who wants to eat that everyday?

Transportation: There are a few buses but no trains.

Scholarships: At first it says I'll receive help, by the end of the semester they change their mind and I need to pay everything in full.

Overall Experience: The school is situated in one of the best locations. The teachers are helpful. We have a very diverse campus

5 College Junior

Diversity: For a campus that is stuck between Queens, Jamaica and Flushing, Queens and Forest Hills, Queens, situated in a region that has a very diverse groups of people: drawing people from a wide range of nationalities and ethnic backgrounds, I can attest to the fact that they have been "committed to an academic culture that promotes inclusion, diversity, equity and access". They have done this knowing that this diversity will impact individual's "worldview, life-choices" and the people I interact with on a daily basis in this changing world. I

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus.

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.
