Athletics: There is a wide variety of sports on campus, and it's very easy for students to get involved and stay involved.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: I only gave it 2/5 because roughly 200 students out of 20,000 live in the housing. This sort of makes the social atmosphere very bleak because most students are coming and going, and don't hang out on campus.

4 College Junior

Administration: Failing grades and breaking codes of conduct can result in losing privileges such as off campus programs, clubs, and being on teams.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The city that the college is in a crowded neighborhood, so off campus housing might be a little hard to find. I still live with at home, so there isn't much that I can say for this section.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The school takes great measure to ensure the safety of the faculty and students on campus. Throughout the campus, there are emergency stations that students can use if they ever feel unsafe during the day or night. Students can use this station to call for an escort to their car/off campus.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: It's not very lively. I went to a couple of dorm parties on campus and found myself wishing I stayed home. SUNY schools definitely have the better party scene.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am currently applying to be admitted into the Secondary Education program that my college has to offer. In this program, I will have many different opportunities to intern and volunteer to help gain work experience to better my chances of finding a career.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I have had no problems with the financial aid process. Any questions or concerns I had were handled almost immediately by the staff on campus.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There should be more selections

3 College Junior

Local Area: The campus is very wide, and I do think there could be more places to eat/ attractions for students to visit while living on campus or spending time on campus between breaks. The transportation is great; there are many different bus routes that go to different towns. I easily get to campus in 30 minutes depending on traffic.

4 College Junior

Academics: I honestly haven't had any problems in regards to my major. The teachers have been very patient with me in my journey thus far, and I hope for it to stay that way.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: lots of kosher food. not much variety though

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.
