3 College Junior

Party Scene: never attend to a party.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It's fine, just wish there was a lot more seafood.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I haven't had the chance to live there, that is why i am applying in order to have money to live there. Overall, the atmosphere is great, you have classmates that are right down the hall. New experiences at every corner. Very friendly, yet very expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's NYC. always hard to find a place and when you do the costs are ridiculously high.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The school never hosts any big events but individually you can usually find a group to go enjoy nightlife with

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: not too many places to eat with good quality food close by. You'd have to take a bus rather far to get anywhere wholly decent.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I am comfortable on campus and feel safe

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't get any money, and had to take out countless loans, even though i have an unemployed parent and am in a difficult situation.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is pretty low grade and although there is a kosher section which is considerate, the food is insanely overpriced for what it is.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I don't eat too much at campus

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: For new york it can be pricey but if you find a roomamte you would be fine.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Go to ginos when the Qcafe food fails you. they have student discounts around the area and there lots of places to eat. Queens is a diverse area so there are lots of restaurants.

3 College Senior

Administration: There is a no smoking policy. But some still smoke.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: There are several scholarships you just have to look for them.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: There arent enough dorms for Queens to be a party school. If the dorms were more affordable more students would stay there which would make it a party school.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: The workers are friendly and the food is usually very good.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Every one in the summit is friendly. Howver I believe the dorm is over priced.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I don't have any tips, but to ask a lot of questions.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The quality of the food is astounding.

I just wish the food wasn't so expensive.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Don't really know to many people who live off-campus.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Kind of a trip to get there, but you can always have food delivered.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Depends on what you're talking about. It's a smoke free, alcohol free campus. Most teachers don't care if you come to class or not.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I applied for the Macaulay Honors program and received a full scholarship.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Really isn't too much going on at QC itself. Definitely suggest going to NYC.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not too many food options, but the food is decent.

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.
