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.

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 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.

Administration: The campus is pretty relaxed and chill. Maybe i haven't gotten into enough trouble with the administration to know how strict they are. But, they seem pretty friendly. They are strict with ids when coming into the library at times. That can get annoying. But other than that, its pretty easy going.

Off-Campus Housing: Many people don't really live on campus because they commute. A lot end up staying at the dorms. But, there are a lot of apartments around and being in harlem, prices are pretty decent. I know the school does help with finding housing, but i don't know how well they are.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Its Pretty bad. No real party scene. Pretty dry campus. Many students commute to school so then end up going right back home or work. I am a victim of this boring life and i somewhat contribute to this because i do work and don't hang around campus so much. But, i do find the parties and throw parties on campus and off campus. Im very fortunate to have a nice party scene but also simple school scene.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Its a very annoying process. Every year i have to go through a hassle. What i would suggest is that you get your stuff done ASAP. Do not take these words lightly. There will be hundreds of other students doing the same thing your doing, trying to get financial aid. Make sure your there ready early in the morning as soon as the door opens to the financial aid office. The quicker and sooner you go, the better it is.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It has its ups and downs. The cafeteria has its basics of sandwiches and burgers all the time. Everyday they have a new option for hot food which is pretty cool. Food is ok overall. Sometimes you'll hit the jackpot or you'll hit a loss.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing would be a manhattan apartment which means it's small and expensive. Parking will most likely be nonexistent just take public transport it's manhattan after all.

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.
