College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I commute, so I haven't looked into off-campus housing that much

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Its NYC so the restaurants are great, but pricey

4 College Freshman

Administration: I am new, so I'm not certain but it seems that the administration is strict about rules that keep students safe.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have submitted my fafsa and have yet to hear anything about financial aid

College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm a commuter so I don't party

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: A lot of the food is pre-packaged and food that is not doesn't look appetizing. The hale and hearty soup, however, is a nice option. I wish there were standard soups that they always carried like Chicken Noodle, or the like.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: Haven't seen or taken advantage of the housing opportunities yet

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We live in New York City, there is always a place open to eat.

3 College Junior

Administration: All staff members do the best they can enforce the policies.

Party Scene: I do not live on campus nor am I the same age as most students so I am out of the loop as far as parties and events.

Health & Safety: I have no knowledge of actual statistics but based on the fact that I have not heard major announcements regarding serious health or safety incidents, I would expect that to be a positive reflection on the security of our school.

Guys & Girls: We have one of the most diverse schools in the country. Students come from a variety of different backgrounds in religion, ethnicity, race, sexuality, etc. You can always expect to meet someone interesting on campus and have great conversations.

Majors: Advisors do not seem to be involved or interested with the students at a level I would have expected, especially being that it is a small department. Quality of teachers vary but overall it is an interesting major and there are enough resources available to fulfill students' requirements.

Athletics: As a commuter school that is focused more on financial aid for students who could not otherwise afford college, sports and other extra curricular activities are not a large part of the experience. It is rare to hear of sports events or even hear students discussing them. And as an inner city school, our facilities are not comparable to Universities in smaller towns/cities.

Party Scene: USG is always throwing parties, but they can be a hit or miss.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Student Career Center is great. Many firms and companies are always recruiting Hunter students.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Its NYC, so it is great, but there aren't many affordable places to eat without taking a subway ride.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The Chemistry department is great and they are so helpful.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: They are always having events.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The Digital diner booths are cool, but the library can use more space.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, Hunter College is great if you are seeking a quality education at an affordable price. The Hunter experience is one that includes making friends from around the world, learning from top-notch professors, and having the opportunity to intern and work for great New York-based companies.

While most students bemoan the fact that Hunter is a commuter school that limits their college experience in some way, others tend to appreciate being able to pay for school without having to take out extensive loans, which makes up for not having a sprawling campus or on-campus accommodations. While Hunter definitely does its part in ensuring that students who pass through the doors (or turnstiles) are knowledgeable enough about the world to succeed once they graduate, Hunter students are also expected to take an active role in making their college experience as rewarding as possible. Be prepared for intense classes that require independent preparation. Don't forget to visit Career Development Services to find ways to jump-start your career through internships; also, join an organization that interests you, and always take initiative to make your Hunter experience as good as you want it to be.
