4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sometimes you have big classrooms where you don't have the same one on one attention with the professors as you do in a small classroom.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe, people will assist you and make sure all students are safe.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Sports are very appreciated in the college.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's one of the best business schools, they will help you find internships and jobs after graduation. They are very strong in having all students achieve high grades

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's not a big deal on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'll start out by saying I'm about be a sophomore, so as at now, I'm speaking from 1 years experience at Baruch. My overall experience of the school so far, has more to do with - believe it or not - my dorming experience than anything at the school itself. In terms of academics, Baruch is hard. You cannot afford to fall behind here. Best advice: always try to be doing more than you "should". Baruch as just a commuter school; I personally haven't found the place I feel like I fit in there as yet, and consider it not the easiest thing to do at Baruch. They kinda take the pressure off throughout fall freshman semester because you're placed in a freshman seminar group (this is also a mandatory class), with people you'll most likely have all your classes with for the entire semester. After that, you're on your own and you'll probably never hang with those people once fall semester is done, simply because you probably won't see them unless you all make special efforts to do so. Also, its important to note that its a commuter school in the middle of Manhattan, and is made up by a few buildings, so you won't get that normal college environment though NYC more than makes up for this. What really allowed me to enjoy Baruch, was the experience I had living in their residence hall. Contrary to popular belief, housing is available at Baruch, though it's not "on-campus" and is selective. At the residence hall, I think you get the best of both worlds as you get most of the traditional college dorming experience as well as being in the middle of NYC. Some things to consider: the dorm is not close to the school - you'll have to walk a block and take the train 15-20 minutes to get to Baruch, you have to pay for laundry and other schools also dorm in the same building. But honestly, if you want to come to Baruch but don't want to give up the traditional college experience, definitely consider their housing option.

Health & Safety: For Baruch, campus crime does not really exist. It is more of a commuter school so there isn't too much crime happening.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Baruch's career center is one of the best around. Using their resources, it is easy to find a job or an internship that directly relates to your field.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not know anything about Baruch's housing that it offers as I commute to school.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Honestly I don't know much about the greek life on campus, I know that it exists but I've never seen it for myself.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics at Baruch are great. Personally I don't attend many athletic activities myself because my campus is in NY and I live in NJ so I don't stick around too often. However I do use the athletic facilities all the time during my breaks of classes and they are great!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school, Baruch College, is a great school and I'm glad that I choose to go here. My favorite experiences that I've had while attending Baruch have been the everyday joy and pleasure of hearing my professors lecture. The passion that they have for their respective subjects is unmatched and is hard to find in most places.

Greek Life: Dont know anything about greek life.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I dont really know much about the athletics at Kingsborough Community College. Since I sit on the Board of Directors I know that they are well funded and fair pretty well when competing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have grown wholeheartedly at Kingsborough Community College. Governing the Bull & Bear Finance Club, The Society for the Advancement of Managment, the Business Council in conjunction with writing for the school paper and managing a part-time job has provided me endless opportunity. By learning how to manage my time, money, and my overall ability to lead I have influenced the greater student body into taking action otherwise unaccounted for. Through endless delegation and persistence, I was able to secure public funds to renovate the Bull & Bear finance club office and retain guest speakers from multiple industries to articulate the hardships they faced while climbing the corporate ladder. By taking students and faculty thrift shopping on my free time, I successfully transferred the importance of a professional psychical appearance. This taught me to be compassionate, and most importantly congruent. Subsequently, I received a seat on the college's Board of Directors. I have had a blast at Kingsborough and can't wait to move on to Baruch College to do the same.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It is great the professors are passionate about their material but it is a public school so its not as intimate. The professors do not care about every student and making sure they are okay and on a successful path within the class. Everything is independent you have to put in the work and make sure you are studying consistently.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I think a degree from baruch college is great. Their MFE program is outstanding.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: its not so bad decent bigger than hunter college dorms.

1 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I do not know much about the greek life but it is downright terrible a student died from hazing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: its hard but it is a CUNY school so most professor do not actually care about the student in particular. however they are all passionate about their field.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I found it rewarding how challenging the courses and professors were for me. I can't consider any of the courses I've taken as 'easy' since I had to study much in order to do well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Baruch has much to offer for students who choose to take initiative to attend the job/internship fairs. Not only that, fliers are frequently posted to offer insight on potential recruiters. It is quite helpful that Baruch sends weekly emails about this, too.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Nothing has ever occurred during my time in this school that endangered any students or me.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What makes Baruch unique is the amount of opportunities provided for students to participate in the business world.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are helpful and motivates students to do bettee. Classrooms are comfortable.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Baruch is a strong choice for students who want a quality education at a low price. But, some say the overall experience can be quite lonely unless you make friends quickly. Most Baruchians seem too busy studying, building their resumes, and hanging out at their apartment to stick around on campus, so unless you join a club or organization, it may be difficult to actively socialize. A high workload and other demands can also make this hard, particularly if you plan to work. In fact, many Baruchians work part time, while some are employed full time, in addition to taking classes. It's a true business-oriented, urban environment, which can make some students feel left out. Luckily, if you're longing for human connection, there are plenty of organizations and clubs to join.

Baruch can be as stressful as any demanding school, but overall, the College is capable of shaping students into well-rounded, tough-skinned leaders. It may not be Ivy League, but out of all the public schools in the area, Baruch has a serious reputation. However, if you don't like to be in the minority, think twice about your major. Nobody likes being stereotyped, but you might raise a few eyebrows telling others you are majoring in philosophy or music at Baruch. Many people view the College as a primarily business school, so if you major in something else, you might be ignored or looked at funny. And this view puts some non-business majors in a constant battle to prove otherwise. But, regardless of your major, the level of education you receive will leave you satisfied. One thing to keep in mind when choosing a major is that smaller departments don't always guarantee a large choice of faculty. It's not uncommon to learn that there's only one teacher for a particular class—so guess what happens if you don't like that professor? However, this doesn't mean that a smaller department won't have a professor you'll absolutely admire. Most teachers are very effective at conveying the material while acting courteous and fair.
