3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had a couple of really unhelpful/boring professors. I took physics last semester with the worst teacher ever. He was so boring and confusing. That was the first class I failed in college and hopefully the last. Other than that, I've loved college and learning about everything. I loved anthropology and sociology.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first semester was great, but my second was rough. Unlike my first semester, my second semester was not spaced out with time to study and breath. This is probably why I received better grades on my first semester.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The sevices offered on campus are actually great, however I have not fully utilized them yet. There are two resources I have utilized already. One is the SEEK Pal Center, which is a tutoring center for SEEK students. The second is the NAC library, which has computers with printers and a large sellection of books to rent. Not to mention, plenty of studying space on each floor.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security is generally good, but they do not enforce the smoking policy very well.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A few of my friend live at The Towers, and the dorms are great.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They made this one kid do multiple store runs, just so he could get admission into the frat. Lol.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I personally do not participate.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's great, but as a whole I still have much to learn. Such as how to utilize my on-campus resources much more.

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.

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.

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.
