Local Atmosphere: Love the place. In the heart of Brooklyn. Awesome transportation by train, many stores around and local places to eat. Also there are shopping centers.

4 College Student

Majors: I plan on applying for internships next semester, but as far I'm concerned the school is constantly providing opportunities to meet with tons of different companies and businesses. These internships vary based on major, but I don't think it will be hard to find a spot to obtain experience in my field.

4 College Student

Majors: I'm very confident in my school's curriculum for OT majors. Not only do they cut down the time frame by a year (compared to most schools), but they make sure that you can take all your prerequisites beforehand and still be an A student. I have no doubt that I will also find a job after obtaining my master's degree in the field since there is a high demand.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I live with my parents in an entirely different borough, so I have no experience with this.

3 College Student

Weather: Snow is the biggest obstacle in the school since most of the student population commutes. The schedule for the current spring semester was so behind that professors had to reschedule and push back the curriculum, but now everything is back on track. Other than that, the weather in New York is nice.

2 College Student

Scholarships: The financial aid office is very unorganized and tedious. It takes way too long to reach someone, and when you finally do you have a chance of receiving the wrong information from a person. I had to make several appointments and calls to find out my financial situation because I was being charged for aid I was supposed to receive, but it turned out that someone gave me the wrong amounts for my federal loans. This problem has also been the same for my friends who attend the school.

Transportation: All the main subway lines are within walking distance of the school, so there's always a way to get home. I commute through public transportation everyday and it's very easy to decide to switch over on a different route if one train is not running.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: From what I hear from other students, it's very easy to get away sneaking in alcohol or drugs into the on-campus dorms, yet it's a process to get a student to sleep over in the dorms.

4 College Student

Diversity: Statistically my school has one of the most diverse campuses in the country. There are so many people coming from different backgrounds and religions that it's hard to keep track of. Many people come from Caribbean/Hispanic backgrounds, but it's still pretty extensive. Economically, most are in the lower to middle class range.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Although it's very easy to walk across the street and grab lunch or dinner, most of the options close by are unhealthy. In order for me to find something that's healthy I would have walk at least 5-6 blocks away which is inconvenient in the winter. Other than that, cost and quality is better when compared to on-campus dining.

College Student

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus and have only been into the freshman dorms once.

3 College Student

Nightlife: Although there are many opportunities to participate in activities in school, there isn't any club life in the area. The biggest parties that happen are also usually off grounds/not in the area

2 College Student

Drug Safety: Every weekend I can hear someone talking about drinking alcohol and my previous roommates had alcohol in the room on several occasions. Almost every day I can smell marijuana smoke in the halls or in the bathroom, and know of at least six people on campus who I have come in contact with who smoke weed.

3 College Student

Scholarships: The financial aid program is a headache in itself. I received my aid with relative ease, though paying what I owe to the school was a major hassle and it took many, many calls to the financial aid office (the wait time is typically longer than the call itself due to a short staff), and I had issues for the two and a half months I had to deal with payments and scholarships. This is one of my main complaints about the school, and hope it is fixed for later years.

3 College Student

Nightlife: I usually don't attend parties on or off-campus, be they official or not, however those in the dorms can be heard from only a few rooms away sometimes, and there are a few clubs that I've heard of many students visiting on the weekends. I haven't heard any negative things from people who attend them.

4 College Student

Diversity: There are many diverse students on campus. One of my roommates is Korean and the other is Indian, and my previous two were Turkish and Black. I fit in better with my current roommates because our personalities are better matched (we're more quiet and not into parties, smoking, or drinking, whereas my previous roommates enjoyed all of those things). There are also many students here from the UK and I met one who came from Australia, as well as students who come from other states such as me (Texas) and some from North Carolina to California. The religious beliefs are very diverse as well, though I am unsure about political beliefs because I usually avoid that topic. I am aware of a couple who lives on my floor who are both girls and am sure there are others like that, or who are of another sexual orientation. (Unsure of if both of the girls are lesbians or identify as something else.)

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: I am not a very sociable person, though I have made a few friends through my new roommates. Making friends is not difficult if you open up and speak to people you meet in the cafeteria, in class, on the elevator, or even in the laundry room. The students here are generally nice and willing to have a conversation and at least become acquaintances.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I have been able to walk to an Applebees on DeKalb (the only restaurant that offers a student discount, but has pretty bad service), a Subway, a SmashBurger, a Burger King, a Chipotle, a Panera Bread, and many other restaurants without feeling tired or as though I've walked too far. The Chipotle was a bit of a ways, however, but I managed. Along the way there are many other restaurants that offer similar food, ice cream, sushi, or coffee. I also am able to walk to a Target and a Grocery store within 10-15 minutes. Very great placement and options!

Health & Safety: The campus security is mostly friendly and willing and able to assist students and visitors. The campus is gated, and all open gates have at least one security guard present at all times- the gates are never closed. Conolly Hall also has at least one security guard present at the front desk at all times. As for the health, I havent caught any disease or sickness yet, though as I reviewed in the part about the dorms, I doubt any part of this dormitory has had a deep clean in ages. I do feel pretty safe here, however and do not mind having a night class at all. Though, I am concerned about the lack of security cameras in any elevators on campus, every hallway in the dorms has three security cameras for reference to any crime or complaint.

Campus Housing: I am and have only been a resident at Conolly Hall, but there are two other housing options that are both off campus, but within walking distance to the school. Conolly Hall is undergoing renovations on the 15th and 16th floors currently, of which I once resided. I was re-assigned a new room on the 10th floor with my 2 other roommates, and due to personal reasons I switched to a new room on the 14th floor, with 2 other roommates as well. The 15th floor had a bad roach problem, and there were three roaches that were killed in my room, and another that I took care of outside in the hall. The bathroom was also apparently a spot to see roaches, though I never saw any there. The toilets were okay, as were the stalls. There were three of each, and three sinks for a potential 48 girls on the floor. From 16 down to 9, I believe, the rooms are meant to house three people at a time, though there is no privacy whatsoever. The bathroom on floor 10 constantly smelled awful, and the showers were nice, though something felt dirty about them. The bathrooms on 14 are fine from what I can see. The workers who clean the bathrooms appear to use dirty mop water from most of the times that I've passed by while they were in there cleaning (let's just say, the bathrooms smelled cleaner before they were cleaned on some accounts, even on 10). It's pretty easy to live here, though I have many complaints about the condition of the dorms for the price that I am paying to live here. The kitchen on the first floor (because freshman dorm rooms are not equipped with anything but a small fridge, even smaller freezer, and microwave) is fine for cooking in the stove, and though I used the oven once, I doubt that kitchen has had a deep clean in years. The 24-hour-rule for storing things in the regular sized fridge and freezer also does not seem to be followed or executed as I have seen the same things in there for months.

Facilities: There are any activities held by the RA's in the dorms, or at other places around campus. I've attended a comedian in one of the school's lounges, and there are often other performances shown in the Avena Lounge. The RA's also occasionally put together some activities for the students living on campus, and I've attended a tye-dye, pizza bagel, and pizza party hosted by some RA's. There are many, many others that I have not attended but that students have enjoyed.

Campus Strictness: As someone who has lived on campus for almost two semesters, I find the strictness to be surprisingly lenient for the warnings we are given at the beginning of each semester. I have heard that students can receive punishments as far as fines to suspension for doing drugs or drinking alcohol in the dorms, yet almost every day I smell marijuana smoke in the halls, or on a floor on my way down to the lobby in the elevator and every weekend you can hear some party going on, or some drunk students in the halls. When the dorm security is called, they eventually manage to get the noise down to a reasonable level, and they are all strict on smoking when they catch it, but the RAs hardly ever seem interested in figuring out the source of the smells or at least keeping underage drinkers from vomiting all their alcohol up in the toilets. From what I was told at the beginning of the year, I thought it would be much more difficult to get drunk or high than I've witnessed it being.

Athletics: I'm basing this on what I've heard and experienced as a student and resident here on campus. The gyms are frequently used for friendly basketball games and a good work out, and I absolutely love the gym. It appears to be relatively new and very clean, and the equipment is well-maintained with cleaning spray available, and required, for after use. The sports games are often promoted and from what I her many students attend, though I have only attended one soccer game and I didn't stay for the entirety of the game. The athletics students are very important to the school, however, as I have heard from the students themselves.
