Overall Hunter is a great school for the money one pays. It has a lot of improvements, though what you put into it is what you get out.

Coming to a commuter school has its ups and downs. At hunter there are a lot of clubs and student activities available. However, it is tiresome to go to the clubs or student activities after a long day of classes. I for example would love to go to the movie nights and student parties that are hosted by the school, however these events are usually at 7 in the night. It would be easier to go if I dormed, but I live all the way in Brooklyn and to go and come back all the way to the city is tedious and not worth it.

The professors are truly passionate. Just so you know, there's a 2 yr language requirement (4 courses needed), you can only transfer High school language credits if you took the SAME language for 4 years straight. So for example, if you took 3 yrs in Chinese, it wont count!
