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.

3 College Junior

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.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I enjoyed my many visits to the campus housing. The apartments are comfortable, spacious, and clean. The implemented rules are strict but fair. However, campus housing is very expensive.

2 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I believe one fraternity has a house of their own. Greek life is quiet and very cliquey. It is easy to join any fraternity or sorority if you have the time to join.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The Queens College student body is very diverse. I have met more people from difference background, races, and religions than I would have met had I not attended Queens College.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I, personally, have never been to a sporting event, neither of my friends have ever been to any team performance, and some students are not aware of the teams that our school has. We have school spirit, but sports are not a big deal at Queens College.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Didn't really notice any sportsmanship on campus.

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.
