Off-Campus Housing: I love being off campus.

I'm a family girl I can' stand away from home. It is so in my advantage to be able to get on the cab to go home to grab a wonderful home meal and have a talk with my mom and dad.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls in the school are very sociable and highly fashion. Every time I walk on campus it feels like I'm attending a street fashion show. They are well dressed, always with the latest outfit or with their vintage outfit that every one seems to be into. I truly enjoy watching the guys wearing suit on campus it makes me proud to see how things have changed from high school it is not about wearing their pants below their waistline but now it is more like a professional vintage look which makes me happy. The girls are high fashion too, they dressed way decent than other girls that I've seen from high school. The one thing I like about the relationship between the girls and the boys is that there's is always mutual respect among them. They always respect each other and communicate effectively to one another.

Greek Life: At York College it doesn't really matter about the race. If you enter York college you will not be able to identify whose Greek or non-Greek because this school or shall I say the student does not make any difference between them. When it comes to housing for the Greek there is non available.

1 College Senior

Administration: The academic advisors are useless. They tell you anything to rush you off. The academic advisors are paid to do nothing.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: LOTS OF FAST FOOD. BEST PLACE IS APPLEBEES

2 College Senior

Academics: STAFF IS RUDE!

PROFESSORS ARE OKAY, SOME ARE VERY CARING OTHERS NOT SO MUCH. REGISTRATION IS A HASSLE AND ADVISORS ARE USELESS IN THE ADVISEMENT OFFICE. WORKLOAD CAN BE OVERBEARING. LIBRARY IS POPULAR BUT MAY PPL JUST GO TO HANG OUT ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF THE LIBRARY.

4 College Senior

Academics: I'VE BEEN A SOCIOLOGY MAJOR FOR ONE SEMESTER AND IT WAS GREAT. I GOT GOOD GRADES AND I AM GLAD I SWITCHED FROM BIOLOGY.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: BECAUSE IT IS LOCATED IN QUEENS -- COST IS HIGH BUT I BELIEVE THERE ARE AVAILABLE APARTMENTS

3 College Senior

Administration: NO MAJOR ISSUES THAT HAVE COME TO MY ATTENTION AS OF YET. BUT THEY DO REQUIRE YOU SHOW ID WHEN ENTERING THE BUILDING.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: OVERALL FEEL SAFE ON THE ACTUAL CAMPUS

2 College Senior

Local Area: COLLEGE IS LOCATED NEAR SOUTH JAMAICA WHICH IS A BAD AREA. THERE ARE LOTS OF STORES IN THE AREA, PERFECT FOR SHOPPING. HOWEVER, THE BEST PLACE TO EAT THERE IS THE LOCAL APPLEBEES, EVERYTHING ELSE IS FAST FOOD (MCDONALDS, WENDYS ETC.). TRANSPORTATION IS GREAT. TRAINSTATION, LOTS OF BUS STOPS AND DOLLAR VANS HELP YOU GET AROUND. AREA IS DIRTY. NO MUSEUMS OR ANY ATTRACTIONS (EXCEPT FOR RUFUS PARK).

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: I didn't even know there was a varsity sports team.

1 College Sophomore

Local Area: The school is in Jamaica, Queens and upon exiting the train station, one is overwhelmed by homeless people, cops, and loiterers selling cigarettes. Not a great learning environment for college students.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Horrible school, if you're an adult learner then go for it. Otherwise, you're better off going to a community college. The staff is rude, zero sense of community and feels like the 13th grade.
