Overall Experience: It's not a bad place to be. The campus life could be better, but it is a commuter school after all.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are challenging and there are many on campus services and extra curricular activities/clubs to make your college experience enjoyable.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The program I'm in is very rigorous and highly competitive, but there are so many helpful people and it is a strong bond that we all have and try to build and maintain amongst each other. I haven't fully gotten into the full college experience as yet, because I'm still a freshman, but so far, so good. I like the campus and the people seem very nice and willing to help.

Overall Experience: The curriculum is up to par and the teachers don't mess around!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The City College of New York has a very prestigious program named Sophie Davis. Sophie Davis has met all my needs academically, financially and socially. I am able to be away from home but also still very close. Sophie Davis is as challenging as possible, but I am up for the challenge since it promises a guaranteed future. Also, it cuts down the average costs of medical school so I am in a stead financial standing.

Overall Experience: I prefer vocational/ trade school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The diversity and course offerings at my school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Its been just a year and I love my college so far. It's 177th on the list of top American colleges which I am very proud about because it's higher than all other cuny colleges and also some Suny colleges. The one star that I took off was because of the lack of student friendly attitude of staff. Whether it be professors or administrators they mostly seem to not care about how hard they are getting on students. They are not understanding of your problems. The science department has poor communication. I mean if you need help they will just keep sending you to different offices and you will be lost. Science department is not that efficient but probably it's a very good college because it's hard. I am just giving a student's perspective. But quality wise it's great and there is no doubt that it's a great place to experience life on college campus. The beauty of old classic architecture and the amazing vibe in the air is just royal. Great place to take pictures too. I have no regrets of being in ccny except that Its hard for me to pay so I sometimes think I should have gone to a community college but it's alright.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The faculty members are mostly supportive. It's a wonderful environment, there is always someone there to assist you. Most individuals seem friendly and willing to help. I would choose my school again because of the support but I wouldn't choose it again because there is no health science major and the Biology department is extremely difficult.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the location is bad for commuting students

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school's science department is very vigorous and hard but it is worth it. CCNY provides a lot of new experiences and is very diversified.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school is great so far, my professors are excellent and really take the time to make sure the students understand the curriculum. My one complaint is that they are not so great with emails. Getting them on the phone is the better option.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school consists of highly motivated students who always push me to do better and reach my full potential.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Bernard Spitzer School has a strong sense of community, where masters and undergraduates would come together to discuss ideas. This sense of cross pollination between different people is truly a unique experience. I would definitely relive my college experience again.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoyed my school. They offered me alot of opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My college is good, but it's not the best. It's prestigious, but not famous at all. People just generally think it's bad when they hear the name. The campus shows signs of low funding - a lot of it needs fixing and renovation. I still like it though and would choose it even if I had a chance to do it all over again.

Administration: there are some professors that are great, however like in any college there are some that are terrible as well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: In campus the food is not too overpriced, although there is not a long variety, it is pretty good.

Scholarships: the scholarships are dealt by two different parts of the administration building, which makes problems with these even more difficult and confusing to deal with.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: No student discounts whatsoever. They are your average restaurants and stores. Since it is Harlem, the dining options can be diverse.

Administration: They do not enforce many on campus rules such as smoking. Attendence is a must for many classes.

Scholarships: Its a hassle dealing with the process at the college. The people at the office dont seem informed, eager to get rid of you, or arent every clear. You have to go there mulitple times just to get something done.

Campus Food: The food at the campus isnt bad. Ranges from pizza to burgers, to salads, and sushi. It can be over pricey. A small slice of pizza is over $2 and a sandwich wrap is over $6.

Off-Campus Dining: Its pretty good. Some local bars may have discounts for students. But, there isn't much as of now. The delis and the Halal Cart are pretty popular and with $5 you can grab a decent lunch. Theres some new restaurants that opened near by. They are a little more expensive than the other food spots but are worth the price. Something nice to have around campus doesn't hurt.

Overall ExperienceWhat's 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.
