4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The building has very good security, I always feel safe

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is a good fit for me because it has a program for working professionals to get their degrees. This is where I fit in, I work 9-5 M-F so evenings and weekends are the one times I have to get my degree. Also my focus is in Media Studies, the core classes provided for this major have been very thought provoking.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not too sure about Greek life. It's not part of our campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am in the Center for Workers Education program and I'm SO glad this exists at City. The classes are challenging but they make it easy for someone who is in the workforce like me to attend college full-time and get the degree I want. The whole staff from front desk to professors and advisors are incredibly helpful. My advisor is actually one of my professors this semester so I know he won't let me fall behind.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of courses to pick from and the professors are caring and involved.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have to resources to continue your career path after graduation.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I know the Greek life on campus is active and involved.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics on campus are very active but not that supported.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The stuff is very helpful and the challenging work encourages me to work harder everyday.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: From what I've seen, the school is very progressive when it comes to Health and Safety, they understand that students are adults but they also realize that not everyone will act as such and the school provides safe havens in case something such as sexual assault occurs.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: At first I wanted to transfer but I realized that I just was under the influence that a state school was somehow better and I now realize that it is not. City College is a great fit for me right now and I don't see myself leaving without a degree.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: From what I witnessed, it seems like students are happy with their lives on campus which makes me want to live on campus which really compliments the social atmosphere.

3 College Student

Greek Life: There are different fraternities and sororities to choose from but there is also a lack of Division 9 fraternities which I was hoping for.

4 College Student

Athletics: There seems to be a great team effort when it comes to sports. The facilities are also great because they're open to non athletes and make sure that users are safe during the usage of the facilities

4 College Student

Overall Experience: It's a great school. It is very convenient to be able to pay for school, I just wish there were more year round scholarships.

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.

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.
