3 College Student

Party Scene: You have MANHATTAN to your disposable go wild.

3 College Student

Party Scene: Students at city do not have big parties they have small parties with close friends. We love in apartments there is not a lot of space.

4 College Student

Academics: I go to Sophie Davis. It's a medical program and the work load is hard. Nevertheless, the classes i have taken through CCNY are reasonable and the work load is not that bad.

4 College Student

Diversity: We are in NYC. We are in Manhattan. We are in Harlem. This is one of the most, or the most, diverse school in the nation. Just listen to Michelle Obama's commencement speech for the graduating class of 2016.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: Better than in elite colleges, since we do not have that much money to waste we only have the cheap stuff available. But lucky, the cheap stuff does not do that much harm.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The professors at City are passionate about the things they teach. They try their best to make the courses challenging but doable. The classes are sometimes too big but there are a lot of students so it understandable. The class styles are teacher in front of classroom and students sitting in individual seats raising their hands. The courses offered are diverse but sometimes hard to get into if your not an honors student.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: People do recognize the school when i wear logo from it. But i go to Sophie Davis and rep that more.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Public Safety on campus is good for the neighborhood we're in, Harlem, NY. I feel comfortable walking through campus alone and in the nearby areas as well. If it is late at night the can pick you up from the train station and drive you to the dorms or campus.

2 College Student

Campus Housing: The Towers are too expensive for the college. The cost of housing is double or sometimes triple the cost of tuition. The staff is nice but very cliquey.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Nothing really special. I don't see them doing things for the community, etc.

2 College Student

Athletics: Faculty only cares about the end results. They don't care about practice or regular meets. Only if the championship meets are won.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: campus not well kept.

students do not care about social activities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses at challenging and it is great how professors are available during their office hours to provide additional help. The average class size are about 35 people and lecture halls fill about 80 to 100 people.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: City College provides great internship opportunities for all majors. Whenever I go to my adviser's office in the math department there of flyers upon flyers of internship and research opportunities that are available to apply to

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe attending city college. There are programs and classes that try to prevent sexual assault at the school and it seems to be working since this crime seems non-existent.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus since I am a resident of New York but from what I hear it is a pretty good experience. Services such as laundry are provided to students and the dorms are right on the campus so you don't have to leave. There are plenty of monthly events at the school making it worth living at the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life definitely is part of the school but it isn't the center if the college the way you see in college movies. Instead of focusing on partying these groups try to help their members succeed and prepare them for the real world.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: City College has a decent athletic program with teams that have have won city championships. The College provides free use of their gym to all students allowing them to exercise on campus instead of having to pay for gym memberships. It is a great idea as it motivates people to get in better shape with out worrying about expanses.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: City College provides a diverse amount of challenging courses for people with various interests. Both teachers and students are highly motivated making it a positive place to go if you are looking for personal and educational growth.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some teachers are great some teachers seem like they enjoy your misery.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The guard at every entrance is a good thing but sometimes the guards aren't paying attention. They lock the gates during the weekends but it's pointless because there are other points of entrance for the school.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: They charge a lot for such a little space. Only real perk is the laundry room and security.

3 College Junior

Athletics: You see a lot of advertisement for the sports but I'm not really interested.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: TAs are merciless and can you really kill your grade. Teachers show more mercy than them. Nothing is easy. Credit system sucks. Most 4 credit classes are science based.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some teachers are great, some challenging.

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.
