Off-Campus Dining: You're in NY, come on! The dollar pizza is not the greatest but it's a dollar. Most places are ridiculously expensive.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't had any problems with the general admin, yet. They're doing OK.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Okay first off, CUNY's are incredibly cheap and worth the money. I get full financial aid and some money left over after it's applied to my tuition. However, the school's admin SUCKS. When I noticed that my financial aid wasn't released, I had to go out of my way to find out that somebody in undergrad admissions put in the system that I wasn't a native new yorker, and almost made me lose my TAP grant. How is that ok? The people in the fin aid office are OK. There are only two helpful souls in that office, everybody else is just terribly rude and won't bother moving an inch to help you out.

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.
