Athletics: The secretary for the principal needs to be fired because she does not know how to be a professional in her field of work. She needs to get laid

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There is a secretary who resides right next to the principals office who is very very disrespectful. She was very unprofessional and did not allow me to speak with the principal when the principal was talking to everyone passing by the hallways. As soon as the principal went inside her room, I tried to approach the principal but the secretary told me the principal was very busy and that I would have to wait til the end of the day to see her. She told me to leave everything on her desk which I know will not get to the principal by seeing how she was treating me. I am a student teacher of that school and I have dedicated almost six months without being paid to teacher two classes with absolute responsibility as their teacher. I know I can look like one of the students but she did not give me the kind of respect that other teachers were receiving. Instead she did not take me seriously and told me to come back end of the day. She was very disrespectful and u professional with the kind of tone she was giving me. She needs to be taught a lesson for her ill-manner. She was such a bitter old ugly woman to me.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I don't really take part in them

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Iv had a good experience in the time that I have attended my college. I'm still learning alot about the campus but the college is her big and nice and had a very inviting atmosphere.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Sometimes when people go to the buildings located outside the main campus area, there are crimes reported (assaults, mugging, etc) and they send bulletins out.But they have cameras, lights, emergency telephones, and security staff all around campus so I think they do a good job of trying to keep everyone safe

2 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I think they're trying to welcome the greek lifemore but I couldn't care less about it and I have no idea how easy/difficult it is to get into a frat/sor.

3 Recent Alumnus

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Every campus has crime and QC exception. I am not a victim of crime on campus and I cannot speak for those who have been. What I can say though is that there are many special security measures like cameras etc that help to moderate criminal activity. The police and safety services are responsive and are helpful in protecting us in order to ensure a safe life on campus. Personally I feel safe on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: First of all the professors here are very passionate at what they do. They encourage us students to always do our best. They are "flexing" when it comes to assignment due dates and understand your situation. They always listen to you and they are very accessible especially after class hours where I can have the opportunity to clear up some things i didn't understand. The courses here are very well planned out offering subjects relevant to the students' field of study and future career. There are so many courses offered o can't even begin to talk about about them. Students have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of courses. I admire the way how the professors use modern technology for example slideshows in class, so that we can better grasp concepts and understand the content. The class sizes are big but i find it more comfortable to work in a big class with so many people because of the general competitive air as compared to a smaller class size which i find boring. To sum up the overall experience here is great. I am enjoying every moment, every second of it.

Overall Experience: Getting a degree at QC can be valuable since job prospect is most of the time guaranteed. I like the idea of sending the students to interns so that they can establish relationships with companies and firms which may lead to job prospects. The internship program also allows for students to get a "hands-on" of the type of work they are considering to do in the future which will enable them to decide if that path is right for them. The alumni is amazing here because it is very active in campus affairs and plays a major role in influencing student body to push further by being role models. The alumni also seeks to keep traditions by educating us about them so we in turn can, appreciate the institution's values. Hearing from the exper. The experiences of others and inclusive of mine, the career center does a fair job in advising students of what careers they may consider. The advisers there will listen to you and make recommendations which will affect your life. Moreover what is advantageous is the fact that there is some sort of network system which exists. This enables us to connect with possible employers and students with other career interests thus expanding our horizons. To conclude it is worth every penny to obtain a degree from CUNY

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice and cosy. They include basic facilities which one finds is a must for living. I have visited them because my friend had invited and from what I observed the dorms are pretty nice as compared to my cousin's who goes to college in Tennessee. I love the apartments. They are very spacious at least for me. I like the inclusion of a pool table, gym and library. The librarians are very friendly and helpful. They always help me out to find the appropriate books I need for specific topics. The cost is pretty high as you would expect from a school like CUNY. What I like though, the housing facilities are situated not a far distance from classes so students can just run out from bed into class if they are late :D Everyone on campus is friendly and helpful. It is a nice experience to meet new people with the same interests as I have almost everyday. In conclusion, housing here does have its advantages and disadvantages but the former outweighs the latter.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life adds to the team atmosphere of the school. It encourages us to work with each other and even motivate each other including the Non-Greeks. Being a Greek opens up many opportunities in terms of popularity, and joining clubs and even recreation. Most Non-Greeks support us especially when we try to raise awareness of certain topics and host competitions. They always have our backs. However one disadvantage here is that many Greeks had parents who were once Greeks themselves at the school. The point is, when considering who can be Greeks and who can't, the previous status of the parents' is an influential factor. Furthermore the fraternities have awesome houses. The conditions are very good. From just passing by them, one can see how well-maintained they are. To sum up being a Greek opens up many doors.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students looking for an affordable college with decent academics may find Queens College to be the place for them. However, students looking for loads of involvement in student life, with a particular sense of community, may not find it at Queens College. The fact that QC is a commuter school causes a lack of communal feeling between the students. For those who are coming to Queens with little or no friends, it is extremely helpful to join a Greek organization. Other students have found themselves to be comfortable and happy on campus with a few close friends. Sometimes it just takes a little work to find your niche.

According to other students, Queens is the ideal place to be—from academics to the social life to adequate facilities to students simply feeling satisfied with their college experience. Queens offers so much and has all that one could ask for as a college student. For students whose desired college experience consists of a large amount of partying and going to bars and pubs, QC is not the best campus for these activities. Overall, QC seems to be geared toward students looking for a certain balance with college life, where students are generally serious about their studies and basically go to college to get their degree, while somewhat getting involved in other activities.
