4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm only an incoming freshmen; although I don't have much experience in Hunter College because the semester hasn't started yet, I can definitely tell that it is my perfect match. I feel as if my "official initiation" into the school wasn't when I received my acceptance letter, but when I walked in through the doors and instantly felt a warm, welcome vibe. I am a city gal--specifically an NYC city gal, who thrives off metropolitan culture. What makes my school unique is that, yes, not only is it beautifully constructed and ingeniously located, but at the same time, it's just a humble, welcoming home. Aside from being in the heart of NYC, Hunter allows it's students to go above and beyond exploring by permitting it's students to free entries or discounted visits to all of the city's museums, most restaurants and shopping areas...it's truly a generous and thoughtful way of making it's students feel at home. If I could do it again all over, I would've payed a lot closer attention to Hunter from the beginning, and would've devoted all my time and energy into being accepted--perhaps into an honors program instead.

Overall Experience: I've only been to orientation - twice. But the peer advisors were extremely nice and helpful, and the coordinators of the orientations were kind. I haven't gotten to speak with many professors yet, but the ones I've talked to so far seem to be very wise and knowledgeable. The staff at Hunter usually respond to my emails pretty quickly and are almost always helpful. The only thing negative I could say about Hunter at the moment is that is has a lack of a residential feel, which is understandable since it's mainly a commuter school. But it seems as though it'll be hard to make friends with such a large amount of students rushing in and out all the time. That's why I plan on joining some clubs, hopefully. But yeah, I'm looking forward to taking my Summer's Edge course next week at Hunter and officially starting in the fall! :)

Overall Experience: So far I've only been to Hunter for orientation and administration reasons. When I first walked in, I felt a little off. I felt as though mostly everyone in the building was quite snobbish and tried very hard to prove their worth in society.

Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know much about off-campus housing but what I do know for sure is that they are very expensive. They should provide some discounts for Hunter students!

Party Scene: Hunter campus parties are very boring because the campus does not really have that sense of unity as other colleges in non-urban areas do. It's better if a party is in some club. But the college club parties are fun.

Administration: If the department is doing something very wrong, it is extremely difficult to try to change their policies. Students should have more rights to stand for what they are paying for.

Scholarships: you have to go ALL THE TIME to the financial office in order to get what you need! Be on top of your business. You must keep track of your records yourself.

Scholarships: It took months and several long visits for my financial aid to finally cover my tuition.

Off-Campus Housing: Living in New York City, you can have the worst of options or the best of options.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Living in New York City, options are plentiful. Options around the school can be expensive at times, because this is the Upper East Side and what isn't expensive here.

4 College Senior

Administration: No real issues with campus police, all seem to be trying to just do their jobs.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Must be proactive or nothing will be accomplished. Everything must be done in person or it will not get done.

2 College Senior

Campus Food: No real options, options that exist are primarily unhealthy and boring.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Impossible to get a space in the dorms unless you're an honors student. Forget it if you're an out of state resident.

Greek Life: They seem to be doing nothing of value or significance. Just kind of wander the halls and hold fundraisers.

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.
