3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Like every other school it has it's pros and cons.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Im very happy with Queens College and I highly recommend it

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If you want to live off campus it's usually to save yourself from the absurd prices of dorming on campus. Not a bad idea.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you're looking to party then Queens College definitely is not the school for you. Nightlife on campus is nonexistent. You have to go to Manhattan to find stuff to do. After all, Queens College is rated #1 most boring school in New York.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Flushing has a lot to offer when it comes to dining options. There are many choices and a lot of it is inexpensive.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Officers are basically there to just wear uniforms and look like we have security. One time my friend came to visit and they couldn't even direct her to the one dorm building on campus. They basically just have no clue.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are basically no options. The meal plan is insanely expensive considering it is not included in the already insane housing costs. There's no point in complaining though because QC never listens.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process is really easy at Queens College. Once you apply online for it, it is automatically added to your CUNY portal account which you can then just apply to your tuition costs like a discount on a shopping cart when you online shop.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Besides the fact that it is very costly to live on campus, the social life is really bad. The campus is a ghost town when classes aren't going on. You obviously have to leave campus to obtain the social aspect of college. My room flooded three times while staying on campus. Was a really bad experience all together. Definitely don't recommend it.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is great, there is no cons.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I never partied at my college, so I actually don't know. I'm not into partying.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is great and affordable.

4 College Junior

Administration: Queens College is pretty strict because it is not considered a party school. There are limitations on alcohol and drug use, as well as smoking on campus. I very much like the strictness of the Queens College campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I don't really buy campus food because it is expensive and there are better places outside of campus such as Ginos Pizzeria or Bakhtar Afghani Restaurant.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I needed financial aid throughout my undergraduate years so I had FAFSA and TAP, and the experience of financial aid at my college was great and the people who worked there were helpful.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Even though Queens College is a public school, it has its prestige and diversity compared to private universities. The professors are excellent and really encourage you to learn more. The social atmosphere is amazing in that Queens College is filled with a lot of trees and has spots where you can rest and study. The dorms are clean. The cost of the school is still less than private universities, however, the tuition in Queens College is increasing. The convenience to Queens College is great for me because I live 15 minutes away from the college by car.

3 College Senior

Administration: It's ok i have had no issues with it.

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.

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.
