3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Explained in first previous review.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Sometimes there are career fairs for job/internships and volunteering fairs available.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Some people participate. However, most people do not seem to care much about school athletics. Rather they are more focused in their studies since everyone is busy and some do not want to afford to lose much time in such activities. Living in a busy city with many ppl and tasks to fufill, this may be acknowledged but is not fully affiliated with as it feels there is never enough time in our hands and everyone is trying to grasp the most of their time in being productive.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Expect overworking and daily workloads from professors since they already assume you to know certain if not most concepts. Time must be used efficiently even if it feels fast paced and that there's never enough time since you will feel, for the most part, busy busy busy. There will need to be a deep devotion in your time for handing in work/papers/projects/quizzes, studying daily for lectures, catching up on assigned readings, etc. Tiime and consecutive effort is a vital key to doing what some professors consider as "okay". Sometimes you may put in all your effort and most of your time only to find out you did just "okay" or sometimes even worse than you have thought you did because of the difficulty of asking detailed oriented questions alomg with strict grading. Though there cannot be much done to change this issue, the only thing you can do is to push on farther with all you can and try your best. Not everything will turn out in your favor and there may be moments of disappointment, but the real key of this experience that will lead to some form of success is to never give up. Never ever ever give up. You will be okay and things will be better someday. This school teaches you just that. I'm sure it'll be just the same if not more apparent in the real world- diverse and quite challenging.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Th atmosphere of the school is great. It is pretty diverse and open.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know anything about and don't know anyone who is part of the "Greek life".

3 College Junior

Athletics: I hear about the games here and there but never actually went to any. And it's not given that much attention anyway.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are engaging as well as helpful toward students but only if you go to their office hours. There are not many diverse clubs to join and even then, they are hard to get ahold of. The school is fun only when you try to make it fun.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: In City College of New York, the athletic teams are interesting only if you, the student, are interested in that sport. They do not hype up sporting events in CCNY.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In City College of New York, I've experienced and learned a lot. I discovered that I needed to become more sociable and build connections with more students. This allowed me to develop my skills and self educate myself; along with the process of making new friends, I gained relationships. I have an outgoing personality, which allows me to be comfortable to say "Hi" to any "strangers", and perhaps exchange some good laughs. One memorable moment was outside the Bernard & Anne Spitzer School of Architecture, when every student gathered and took a pictures together as a group with their projects.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are security guards that request ID at every entrance to the campus. There are shuttles that run late to keep you from walking the streets to the train alone. The campus has many sexual assault prevention classes/discussions/etc

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a large variety of courses to take, however, the professors are not always the best for that course. You can easily get very close to the professors and develop a strong relationship.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is highly used, but I have not used it yet.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social aspect is very good. However, the price for what you get is absolutely outrageous.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life here is very popular and highly publicized, however, we are a commuter school, so I'm not sure how the fraternities and sororities work in that aspect.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are plenty of people that are part of the athletics here, but they aren't very publicized nor are they popular.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is very helpful when it comes to giving an affordable education as well as a great education.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: The shuttle would not stop in between the designated stops n the evening. So they rather have students walk at night within the same route as the shuttle instead of letting them of at the end of a block.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: i do not life on campus, however it is very expensive

3 College Junior

Greek Life: its low key i am not part of the greek life

3 College Junior

Athletics: i have not seen athletics be a huge part in campus

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are special classes to talk about these topic. These classes are considered to courses, but not worth credits.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: some professors are nice and helpful, but some do not consider students' ability to accept what they teach about -- they just teach what they want to teach, test what they want to exam, but not follow students' level.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: it is fine so far.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not take part in this.

View student contributors

City College may be small compared to the other universities in New York City, but it still kicks butt. City has many special attributes that most students won't find anywhere else, including the diversity, the crazy amount of scholarships available, the amazing fellowships and internships, and the professors. It may be a public college, but the professors who teach are still highly qualified. They hail from Ivy League schools and well-known private universities from around the United States to teach a dedicated bunch of City College students—students who are friendly, easy to talk to, and worth making friends with.
