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.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Summit was built in 2009, so it's relatively new and clean. The only downside is the price.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Gino's Pizza is the BEST PIZZA! So good and they are kind of pricey, but do offer a student discount if you have a Queens College ID I believe.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's good and fast. They do not take long with your orders so you can be there on time to class!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus is not that big so the buildings are closer to each other. Helps getting on time to class!

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: NYC expensive not reasonable price

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.
