5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Baruch College is a very "high pace" college. I personally like it. I am one of SEEK students, my advisor and my colleagues gave me a lot of help.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The orientation was a good learning experience to be up to date of where everything was. Although orientation was mostly making our accounts for the semester and how to go on to register for classes, etc.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: As a transfer student I'm new here, but what I can say is that the process leading up to the start of classes has been one headache after another. We had one day of orientation, most of which was setting up school accounts.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The overall experience at CUNY Baruch College is quite pleasant. Although there are some dislikes here and there; an example being when dealing with offices concerning financial aid or the registrar. The general atmosphere of the school is energetic and welcoming.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The buildings are not really very interesting or unique, but at least they have handball.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's okay, at best, all far.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The school welcomes diversity and it challenges you to become better in any way. In my first year, I had difficulties understanding how to better craft an essay in English, since I'm not a native american. However, in the following years spent at Baruch I developed good communicating and writing skills as a result of hard work and help offered by both professors and the writing center. The writing center here is very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Baruch is a great school and it is very business oriented, although they offer many other majors. The school does not have enough classes to accommodate all of the students, especially when it is a class that is mandatory for students to take.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: People there care about my academic progress.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Baruch College is a small building located in midtown. Due to its convenient location, there are many internship and job opportunities for students. The college provide many options in terms of major and minor selections, however, most students belong to the school of business. The amount of resources available to students is based upon the school the student belongs to. In the Zicklin school of business, accounting students probably receive the most recognition and are exposed to more opportunities that any other majors.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: If I have a second chance to apply, I would apply to this school. However I plan my academic works differently that how it was. It's academic reputation is well-known for the major that I am taking but my experience would be a lot different if I have find out how to play with the system.

Overall Experience: As a Transfer Student, the process was overall easy. Many of your classes might not transfer, but whichever ones do have Designations will help you knock out the Required Core, Flexible Core and College Option classes you will need. Zicklin School is the biggest school there so you have lots of competition if you're a business major!

4 College Freshman

Administration: Our campus is mostly just one building, so security is well established.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got the Pell Grants, but my TAP got cancelled an I didn't know why. I went to check and turns out I can't do much to get the money for this semester, but I can get it for the upcoming years.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is New York City it is so extremely expensive.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties are pretty much non-existent on campus.

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.
