3 College Freshman

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.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: i do not live on campus

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.

Administration: The school's policy is mostly irrelevant as the Professors usually ignore or modify the policies for their particular class.

Campus Food: Food is okay but way overpriced. At lunch time the dining room is overcrowded and there is a long line for the microwaves.

Campus Food: My mom is a wonder housewife so I grew up blessed with awesome food and now everything I get around school just doesn't compare.

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.
