The program I am in is called Zicklin School of Business taken by finance, marketing, accounting majors and others similar to that field. To get in, certain classes need to be taken and to graduate from that program, further courses are a must. Those are the general requirements to staying in the program but it can be a bit grueling because some of the courses don't offer a lot as a student or at least the program and don't feel necessary to take but it's all part of the requirements. Taking the classes you need to take to get in sooner is preferred because without being in the program, certain classes are barred from students outside the program and require what we call ZUPS which basically grant student permission but that's another process in itself. Be conscious of what classes you take!

Student life at Baruch is only enjoyable if you GET INVOLVED! Since it is a commuter school, a majority of the students are in and out of the building just to attend classes. Speaking from personal experience, joining a club or playing a sport that you enjoy will open doors to more internship and job opportunities. The athletic and arts centers at Baruch College are top notch. Our theater hosts several plays and musicals for large audiences every month, and athletic centers are home to our famous Varsity sports teams.

When I attended Baruch College, there were no dorms available. So naturally, 80-90% of students were commuters. I know that recently there are some off-campus housing options. However, this NYC--you have to remember that it will cost an arm and a leg! Rent is very expensive, although it might defer from area to area (such as uptown, BX or in Kip's Bay, where Baruch is.) I'm sure that it is now much easier to find apartments off campus, also as enrollment is higher, students are bound to find roommates/other students who are willing to share a living space for the convenience of living close to school and right in the heart of NYC!
