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.

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.

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.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Most of the students who are involved in the athletic field are boys. This is not to say that girls don't participate. The sports teams are very good. They try their best to make time for practice. They try to win at what they do. They gain a lot of fan support from students at the school and also students of other schools. The facilities provided for sports activities are okay but needs improvement. All in all my school loves sports and it is a part of a lot of students' lives here

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: my current school is the second top school here. it's very good in terms of the education quality and it offers a wide range of extracurricular activities. i love the shows and various showcase of culture at my school. what separates my school from the others is the discipline. the teachers work hard to upkeep traditions and rules to ensure an orderly institution of learning. i would choose my school again if i were to do it all over because the experience here is none like other

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love everything about the dorm. It is spacious, the RA's are awesome, there is a small community here at the dorm. The only issue is that it is pretty pricey, so that is an issue.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have nothing to do with Greek life, so i have nothing to say about it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have never been to a varsity game or intramural sports because I am not all that interested in that. I love working out so I love visiting the gym which is kind of small, but has what I need to get a good workout.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like school. My classes have more or less been interesting. My issue is I am afraid of what to do after school. the professors are great and I like the environment, but finding internships and jobs have been rough.

Greek Life: i am not sure about it

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers are good at teaching there subject and are passionate about it.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Again, not much attention is paid to Greek Life. Much less than the athletic departments.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Many of the students in these activities are self and group motivated. Other than that, no one really pays attention to them.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It has been a great experience, being able to take control of my college career. Also, enjoying clubs for which I joined and many other activities that have taken place around campus, such as talks and programs about foreign affairs. I have also taken a few jobs while at school, which have opened my experience to all these other views. In general, managing my time with church, school, work, family, and other activities has really been the best experience I've been able to take up.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: During finals week, I usually walk across campus late at night, around 11PM-12AM, and I still see public safety walking and driving around campus in the dark, which makes me feel safe to walk around campus at that hour.

Overall Experience: Some of the harder classes on this campus are all about self discipline and self studying. Though the professors do their job to mention and teach material, sometimes I find that professors only teach material to pass THEIR OWN tests, and not to understand the material.. Due to those types of teaching methods, I see that the class size decreases drastically as the semester goes on.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: As a junior, I'm hoping to go to my career center in hopes of having advisors and experienced people help in the career process after college, however from the people that I know that have gone to the center, they have said that they were no help at all.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Freshman year of college, my friend went to a meeting regarding sororities and was frowned upon when they saw that my friend was wearing a pair of sweatpants. After my friend's experience, I didn't have any interest in joining the Greek life at Queens College.

3 College Junior

Athletics: As a student who is a non-athlete but dating an athlete, I see that most of the athletes stay within the athlete pool, without branching out to non-athletes and socializing with them.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: At Queens College CUNY, the student body is very diverse, however I still feel like it is just a mature version of high school.. The people end up in certain cliques, the more predominant being grouped by religion and if you're an athlete. Professors and teachers seem to have favorites, and trying to be apart of clubs/research as a current junior like myself, is very awkward and difficult because I am an upper classmen.. I don't feel at place at Queens College, and I don't feel ready to graduate school at all.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The professors are great and very passionate about their subjects. There is a variety of interesting courses offered and it is moderately difficult to register for them. The average class size is about 15 students but lectures can have more than 100 students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have been informed of many opportunities at Queens College. I have taken advantage of many employment opportunities on and off campus. The alumni network works hard to inform the alumni on upcoming events and campus news.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The students are well-informed when an emergency occurs on or near campus, so we feel very safe knowing the the problems are taken care of. There are always security on campus watching over the students.

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.
