Campus Housing: A lot of people love tower life!

Overall Experience: CCNY was regarded as one of the highest ranking schools in ny as the Poor Mans Harvard, but now it is not very helpful financial aid wise with the school charging every dime possible yet unable to help with financial aid. No new technology like macs and some teachers are not fit for teaching intro courses.

Overall Experience: There are alot of opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am having a good experience with City College.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I personally feel safe on campus. However, there are so many students that it is hard to see how someone feels. These students must seek help themselves because the reality is that staff are oblivious to what goes on with students personal issues. There is an office that helps deal with any of these issues if they are sought out and they seem to be very supportive based on the seminar they gave to freshmen.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The education and relationship between students and professors for the most part is very detached. Math and science courses can be very rigorous.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Several career opportunities are advertised but not greatly. Must be on top of everything.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: From what I hear from friends it's not so bad. The area is limited but if a proper group of friends is made then there is a lot to do. Very convenient to have library and facilities nearby.

Greek Life: Pretty irrelevant on campus and do not do much.

Athletics: The gym is nice but can easily get packed because of the limited space and priority for athletes.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a CUNY. That means you are an individual in a melting pot of 15,000 students. Class size is large and programs are very competitive and rigorous. The staff is not always concerned with your needs and you could easily get thrown off by technical issues that are not your fault; such as registration, holds, payments, and such. The social experience is not the best. Facilities are also old. BUT the school is academically challenging and does have many great professors. Proper advisement and guidance can make you come out of this school very educated and independent, which makes it very worth the experience. If you get into the professional school of your choice and ARE NOT a pathways student, then this school may be a good choice.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are very nice and I love the community, however they are just too expensive. The price is ridiculous. I do like free laundry though.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Don't participate in greek life, no do I plan to. I appreciate that it isn't a big thing on campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Don't play sports at all but it seems that sports aren't a big part of campus life. The sports facilities seem very nice as well.

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.
