3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Lots of meetings were scheduled for new students to inform them about the various support services the college provides. For adults who have been out of school for sometime, the school provides many clinics on writing and math skills in addition to one-on-one tutors that are available by appointment or scheduled hours.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school is a commuter school in the middle of Manhattan. Housing is the responsibility of the students.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Considering the where the school is, it could be worst but there a decent options available if you walk a few blocks to SoHo.

3 College Freshman

Administration: While they administration supports student groups, you will have a hard time organizing one due to apathy among the student body. Since most students are working adults and live in the outer boroughs, getting them to come to your meeting will be difficult (but food helps.)

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: While they do provide assistance in looking for grants and scholarships, I can't say they are helpful in providing personal guidance in getting any of them.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are only a few clubs at the school but some sponsor meetings and get-togethers on occasion which feature light meals (sandwiches & salads.)

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not a real campus. Student lounge has free coffee and tea along with snack foods from vending machines. But their are a few decent restaurants and deli's nearby.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: No housing available since it's a commuter school in the middle of NYC.

3 College Senior

Diversity: I'm a strictly online student so I'm unaware of the goings on at the physical school.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Everything went smoothly. My grants and scholarships were accepted by the school. Get all of your financial aid squared away well in advance so that it'll go smoothly.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would rate the course and professors to be average. Some professors are more helpful than others. Some courses are more interesting and relevant than others.

3 College Senior

Majors: Some of the classes are pretty difficult. There seems to be a ridiculous amount of reading necessary which nearly takes up my life. It's the price of education, but I'll definitely be happy when it's done. All of my classes are online so it doesn't help that I have no interaction with my classmates or teacher unless it's through the group discussions.

College Junior

Athletics: Since it is mostly online learning, on real sports

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: So safe you barely realize there's any issues

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is such a wide range of people here it's great

Majors: There is an internship for practically every imaginable major. Many are unpaid though. I wish to take one, but need the time for other studies and possible income.

Majors: Getting admission to the college is not difficult as long as you are focused and apply yourself. This college is mainly for adults that wish to fast track their learning within a more specialized area. There is a lot of independent studying and one on one interaction with mentors.

Local Area: Being located within a large city, there is accessibility to almost everything.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The college doesn't actually have housing, at least locally, due to its more mature students. There is little to no need for housing.
