Health & Safety: The school does not have housing, it's however located in a neighborhood that isn't the safest.

Overall Experience: My course of study involves an internship along with courses in various social work disciplines. Once graduated I feel I can get a job easily, it is one of the most prestigious graduate schools for my career choice.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm an incoming older Gradiate student, not as technically endowed as the other students. I've had to contact various members of the faculty for many online questions/problems in advance of classes beginning. I've had prom responses, an extreme amount of help and advise. I'm going to get my Masters in social work and the faculty reflects the "helping profession" with their concern and information givenn to me.

3 College Junior

Academics: It's challenging, but it's worth it. The more you experience these types of challenges, the comfortable you will be later on in the future.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Basically, everyone has their own identities and they are all different.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: There isn't any problem with drugs and other types of violations.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are some difficulties along the way such as handling the classes, picking out what classes to take, and sitting in a small lecture hall with at least hundred students.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are lots of opportunities I received from my college emails. Although, it's pretty competitive due to a large number of undergraduates studying in this college.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: They provided an online program where students are required to watch several videos about sexual assaults and drugs. Also, heath center in the campus was really helpful to the students who are in need.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I never knew there are actual varsity teams in this college. There are some school spirits involved since students are wearing the colors of the college mascot.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, some classes are a bit challenging due to the large size of the class. Some professors are passionate in what they're teaching.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There's a lot of diversity, no one is the same and it's easy to see everyone understands the differentiality of everyone.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm not a participant in "Greek Life" ..nor am I an advocate of it. But the fraternities/sororities at Hunter are present throughout the halls with fundraisers and tabling sessions as well as parties. I think these frats/sororities feel they have more of a purpose than just to party ..but I have only observed them in these events.

Overall Experience: It's huge!- I don't mind that, but I have been attending school in the city (Manhattan) since high school and the hustle and bustle (along with the commute, because I don't dorm) is quite tiring. Not to mention that getting hold of someone in the advising staff, especially during enrollment periods, is extremely difficult. I've been able to work around that by being extra assertive and preparing my own schedule and tracking my own degree far in advance.

I do absolutely love the faculty in my department (music/education) and have met wonderful classmates and made tons of connections. This is what keeps me going-the great people!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel quite safe while on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Starting a new chapter in my life was scary. College. The word brings a little bit of fear to everyone when they're first starting out. Luckily for me, the fear came with drive. I always heard about how hard college was, and how much work had to be put in. My first year I went to many tutoring hours, teachers, and peers and got all the help I needed to have an incredible year. I learned that college is tough, but can be fun at the same time.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I think that the diversity, multicultural Greeks on campus are great and do good for the community

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus seems secure. There are guards and turnstiles so you can't just get into a building if you aren't a student.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I'm not a fan of sports and do not follow any Hunter College teams.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Hunter College, part of City University of New York (CUNY) is a great value. Although the campus is a little shabby, it is conveniently located in Manhattan, and there are many classes and programs to choose from. Many of the teachers Are experts in their field. CUNY students and scholars win many awards each year. If you are willing to work hard you can get a lit out of the school.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far it as been a learning process and it gets better each semester.My favorite experience would the time there was an open mic night in the cafeteria it was nice to see hunter students laughing and joking around.My school is unique because of the fact that i consider it my second home .If im not home then im surely at hunter.

Health & Safety: The campus is quite safe. There's guards everywhere and I haven't felt like my safety was threatened at all.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There's great career opportunities for students due to the career services and employer recruiting. Top companies come on campus to recruit students. There's always sessions to review and update resumes with advisors that help with finding jobs.

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.
