CUNY Queens College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (11)
I transferred to Queens College from a private college due to rising tuition costs. I was no longer able to afford my education at a private institution so I turned to the CUNY system to work towards achieving a degree in special education. I later decided teaching was no longer for me, so I switched my major to Sociology and graduated a semester early. I have recently been accepted into graduate school and plan to expand my education. Obtaining a degree from QC is not easy, but well worth it. You will not graduate stuck in enormous debt. My only complaint is the fact that QC is not a very social school regarding the friends you hope to make while you're in college. QC was not the best 4 years of my life, and I did not make many close friends during my attendance. Students are mainly there to go to their classes and go home. I did however receive a great education which I continue to benefit from everyday.
I am currently a senior pursuing a psychology degree. I want to go into school counseling. I started out Queens College as a dual major with elementary education/ psychology. It is a very good college and definitely very rewarding. I would recommend Queens College to future students.
At CUNY I enjoyed a diverse campus atmosphere with plenty of courses from which I could choose and a home within the anthropology department. There were many extracurricular opportunities that I took advantage of while I was there such as the anthropology club, where I served as an officer for three years. The faculty were knowledgeable and approachable. I would often seek their advice for summer fieldwork programs in archeology and graduate school. Aside from anthropology, there were intellectually stimulating classes in both the humanities and sciences. I took classes on poetry writing and great plays as well as biology and geology. It was an intellectual buffet and I recall the incredible sense of freedom of ideas and expression when I walked onto campus. It was a wonderful education for a bargain.
This is quite a nice college, especially for the price. Many others colleges, and CUNYs don't have such a nice campus that's pleasant. The library is also pretty great compared to others (like QCC); it's large, quiet, has many new computers & copiers & other useful resources. Most professors are pretty good, some great. Most classrooms/lecture hall are comfortable with good lighting. There's plenty of places to lounge around both outdoors and in.
I thought that this was a great school when I transferred from QCC. The tuition is affordable compared to other CUNY schools, the campus is nice, and the professors are great depending who you have. The only thing I didn't like was dealing with the financial aid office.
I participated in the Communications-Sciences and Disorders program in CUNY Queens College. I am satisfied with the depth of knowledge I achieved and the professors that taught me. There were a few that stood out more than other that inspired me most.
Great college! Beautiful campus! Better to do important things in person rather than calling the college. With this college I would say that it is very important to focus and study because there is no one to really guide you in your studies. But the overall experience is sound.
CUNY Queens have me an excellent education. The professors are wonderful and the class sizes vary so much that it is super easy to find the right class for you!
Don't waste your time. This school is all about taking your money. Not about delivering a quality education. I spent the last few years taking classes that had nothing to do with my major. Like drama and art. I'm an Economics major for crying out loud. Plus 3 semesters of foreign language. Very little support. The professor's are Racist and uncaring. The school Cates little for military they only care about spending our GI bill. Don't even think about getting any career counseling they counselors in the Economics department are the professors and they are to busy for students.
I thought Queens College was amazing. I felt that I had teachers who were experienced about the world, and extremely knowledgeable about their subjects. I really think I got one of the best college educations anywhere. The degree program in Education was special. I was in an Open Education program that is one of the best in the country if not the world. We learned about non-traditional education methods and I student taught at Central Park East Elementary school which was a model school for this method. The Principal there at the time was Deborah Meier, who is world famous for her education reforms. She has written many books on the subject. It is a program that motivated me to be an inspirational educator. The teachers in the program were special, and really cared about us. We all went away to a camp for one week a year to bond with each other, so we really formed a close knit group. One of the teachers there, he was a real pivotal person in my life.
