I love CSI. It is such a nice environment. The teachers are all generally pretty good. So many of them are understanding if you have work or something going on that is important and need more on an assignment or to study for a test. A lot of people think that academically it is a weak school but it is not. We have a drama professor that also teaches at NYU... thats the same education as an NYU student but at a much cheaper price! That was just an example to prove a point. Either way I think the student makes the most of any experience.

The college campus is beautiful and very diverse; but, you have to make sure and check "ratemyprofessors.com" because some professors are a nightmare and will ruin your GPA. There are so many resources at your disposal and its all free! The CUNY system is really there to help you and its all there you just have to look and ask. Its really hard to have friends there especially if your shy like me. I mean you talk to people and they are really nice but once class is over its like you never existed. Either way my classes have been okay and hope that things will really look up in the future.

I really enjoyed my time at CSI. I got to join a national honors society which helped me to branch out and network with others in my peer group. There are so many teams and clubs to chose from and you have the ability to create your own if none are to your liking. They genuinely embrace individuality on this campus. Some of the professors are real scholars and professionals in their departments. They make learning fun and not a complete drag. Overall good experience, and along the way I've made some lifelong friends.
