I can only speak of the Multimedia Studies and Multimedia Journalism program and it is definitely challenging. In my first two years of taking journalism and communication courses at Lehman College, I have learned about Marshall McLuhan, DeForest and Armstrong, Tesla and the impact of Thomas Paine's &quot;Common Sense&quot; had in justifying the American Revolution.

This semester I am taking &quot;African American Media&quot; and I have learned about Frederick Douglass and the North Star, Ida B. Wells-Barnett and the Free Speech and Headlight, Robert S. Abbott and the Chicago Defender, Edwin Nathaniel Harleston/Robert Lee Vann and the Pittsburgh Courier. Khoi African woman Sarah Bartmaan/Bartmann (spelling varies) has also been a topic of study.

As part of the Multimedia Studies program, we are able to take film courses to fulfill our electives requirements. In these classes, we have studied important and significant films in the history of filmmaking such as The Birth of a Nation, Captain Blood, Battleship Potemkin (Russian), The Bicycle Thieves (Italian Neo-realism), Rashomon and Branded to Kill (Japanese), and The Lady from Shanghai (ffilm noir)among others.
Additionally, we have studied performers such as Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Buster Keaton, and Theda Bara. Let's not forget my favorite: Alfred Hitchcock!

On a different note, who knew that P.T. Barnum of the Barnum and Bailey circus is considered to be the first press agent the world of PR has come to know.

In addition to my multimeda studies curriculum, I plan to study abroad in the summer of 2013 and take an archeology course offered in Crete, Athens.

I suspect that the registration process is comparable to that of other CUNY schools.

So far I love my school although I had many issues with financial aid. At my school they offer many great programs with the best opportunities. They offer great tutoring for every subject and everyone here is like a big family. I love that about Lehman. I made great friends who are in the same field as me, who I'm able to study with and enjoy time with on campus. My campus is in the Bronx. When you step foot into Lehman it doesn't look like the Bronx one bit. It looks like it's a campus you would see upstate and that's what makes it unique. It's a beautiful campus in the CITY! However, forming here of course is expensive as well as the books. So far, my teacher engage with every student and make sure we have everything we need in order to succeed and pass the class.

Don't Do Nursing – Nursing in Lehman is beyond competitive. You are going against all the Koreans, you will loose the GPA game. It's not even a stereotype I'm going off of here, 95% of nursing students are international students who have 3.99 GPAs. They are tough, determined and anxious to graduate with honors even though this program is SUPER expensive &amp; the chemistry professors SUCK ASS! Education and sociology are big at Lehman. They are not hard, and the offices are supportive, and you do have certification and scholarship opportunities. Evey other major is easy to enter, and they are all what you make of them. But African American/ Puerto Rican studies is has the best teachers and amazingly, so does philosophy and the English department. For journalism/ communication/ art/ dance/ photography/ computer science etc... fun places to be, not always easy, but the technology is available.
