I came because there was a conservatory of music, but it's hardly anything and the wind ensemble has less than 20 students. I cannot wait to transfer.

Brooklyn College is a fantastic school with a faculty who really cares about their students, especially within my major (Earth and Environmental Sciences). The campus is beautiful with incredible facilities, most notably the extensive library. The only drawback is the size of the school when dealing with financial aid and tuition purposes, however, this is due to CUNY logistics and is not a direct reflection on Brooklyn College.

I get a lot for what I pay. It could obviously improve but that's with time.
