Overall Experience: Pre-reqs will just add another year on to your schooling. its such a scheme. do yourself a favor and go to a SUNY school instead of CUNY.

Party Scene: I honestly have never been to a hunter related college party cause its a commuter school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Its SO hard to get into living at the cheapest of the dorm buildings. Theres months of waiting lists so if you dont get it at first theres a good chance youre not going to live on campus. Even if you get it, the commute from the dorms to the actual school is about 30 minutes on the subway. The building is old and not so roomy but I ended up staying a place called Educational Housing Services and they gave me a room but theyre OVERPRICED and have too many rules.

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I did not dorm. I lived at home. But NYC is very expensive due to gentrification.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Some of the best things near the school were the food carts and pizza places. They were a bit more affordable than the cafeteria option. It would have been nice to have more variety and affordability though.

College Senior

Administration: I did not dorm, but on campus I saw there being strict rules about contraband like alcohol and drugs. There weren't many incidents that I was aware of.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: The office was often crowded and my papers were sometimes mixed up, but in the end, I got the aid I needed and I was able to go to classes right away.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I didn't go to many events, but there were many available and the events I went to were affordable and fun.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: There was a good variety of food as school went on. But it was very expensive so I had to bring a lot of my meals from home.

College Senior

Campus Housing: When I was in undergrad, I did not live in a dorm when I was in college. I lived at home with my parents and took the subway 40 minutes into Manhattan for classes. I lived close enough that I did not have to dorm.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I wish there was better transportation from the east side to the west side. Other than that, it's NYC and everything is available at all times

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I have had a hard time meeting someone, but I am also a returning college student (meaning I am older than most of the kids in my classes)

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There seems to be decent security at the school and there is definitely a push for students to become educated in the facts concerning sexual assault.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall my experience has been great. I think that the cost of the school with the classes offered makes it a very attractive school to get into.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I've liked all my professors and my experience has been great.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Seems like there are a lot of opportunities - but the advisors are sub-par

College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know about our sororities or fraternities

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I believe we have decent sports teams at Hunter, but I am new so I'm not entirely sure. The gym seems nice.

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.
