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.

Hunter has a very useful and helpful career development website which opens opportunities to students seeking careers after graduation or internships. I met with a counselor and we discussed my resume, my academic progress and they helped me polish my professional resume. They also host tons of workshops to succeed in interviews, polish resumes, knowing how to dress to look professional and much more. However, the student must proactively participate in accepting the advice and follow through for success. I did not struggle in obtaining a professional internship since my program requires an 8-week internship at professional lab as a course therefore I received 3 credits for the successful completion of my internship. I must say Hunter is amazing when you find all the perks!

I love the location and how big the college is. There are so many people you can meet! I love not seeing the same faces all the time. One thing I did not like is the priority registration. Everyone gets a different registration date and time and classes fill up fast. Honors, and sports go first. By the time you get your registration date you have the scraps of the classes and sometimes you can't take a bio lab with your biology class. It's sucks. Also advisors and staff aren't much help at all to you.
