3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Courses fill up very quickly. The professors are very accommodating and always try to help out when possible, giving out office hours and email addresses. Class sizes vary depending on the course you're taking, and major.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security is posted at all the entrances and exits in the buildings, allowing only students and employees to enter.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not that popular in Hunter. People who do join seem to make a lot of friends.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The location of Hunter is great and the student body is very diverse.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Do not hear much about it

2 College Junior

Athletics: I don't see a lot of stuff about athletics nor people who are in the teams

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being in the city the school is widely diverse

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's okay, safe and fun.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It's very easy to get good grades if you put the effort and time into it.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: It's it in the center of NYC, which in itself is a very diverse and accepting city.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: They make you take a course on it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There are lots of safety officers around.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have not taken advantage of any of these options yet.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I mean, I have no real opinion on them. I have never been.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The ancillary nonsense like financial aid, advisement and such are frustrating. Plus they jerk you around by not offering needed classes every semester.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is pretty great overall. Professors are great, especially when you take the more intensive courses for your major. Though there is a lot of work, it seems to pay off in the end. Hunter does require some writing-intensive courses. There are a lot of random electives to choose from. Depending on your major courses can be really competitive and are designed to remove the weakest links, but once you get past a certain point, the pressure lacks a little. Usually classes range from 15-40 students, unless you are taking a lecture which can go all the way up to 300.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've often been told that Hunter is "the poor man's Harvard" and that its a really good school, so imagine a degree from Hunter would hold some weight. A lot of alumni have gone to do big things, including acting, modeling, becoming significant lawyers, politicians, playwrights and poets and participating in one of the most rigorous nursing programs in the city. There is a career center available to help with concerns though I've never been there.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Pretty good, no complaints. They always give me bandaids when I need them.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There isn't much of a Greek scene at Hunter. They are mostly low-key, while they do attempt to reel people in and throw parties, Greeks aren't very popular at this school.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I've never been to a sporting event at Hunter College. I know there is a prominent basketball team but I never heard of anyone seeing them play. There is a fitness center on campus but it seems rather small for the amount of students who go here. The people who are into that kind of thing do seem to have school spirit. Whether or not people are active in sports, most people adorn Hunter merchandise daily.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Hunter College is a pretty decent school. Academics are great, top notch for the price, great location too. Professors can be a hit or miss as for grading, but all of them definitely know what they're talking about. It can be stressful at times if you're a commuter (which most people are) with getting around and making it to class on time. But the plus side is, you're right near central park! And a 6 train away from everything. Clubs are definitely really active on site, with a lot of bake sales and free food to keep your broke tummy full. The little events held by the clubs and USG are mostly the only real social points of the school year. Besides these events, Hunter can be a really antisocial school- everyone's bustling around on a New York minute trying to get their own stuff done, without much time to socialize. If I was staying in the city, I would probably choose to go to this school all over again but I'd much rather dorm at an away school, just to get the full college experience, I kind of regret not moving away for school, but everyone's different.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think is okay because so far I have not experience any assault

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: the experience is okay sometimes people can be mean but the only way to resolve something in this school is by you doing your own things.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: the campus housing it is okay there is space but some old classrooms are still small.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I think it is okay well I actually I don't know because I never paid attention to this.

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.
