"Being the daughter of two immigrant parents, education has always been my number one priority. Attending CUNY was the best decisions I made. CUNY has not only allowed me to grow as a person but as a journalist, a Mexican-American journalist ready to go to work! CUNY and the Journalism Department has such a diversity, it's my home away from home. I'm so thankful for my professors, my classmates, and the university that wants to see their students succeed."

"The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism is a great institution and I am happy I made to the choice to attend. In just one semester, I have learned so much and have built a solid network. The workload sometimes feels like a lot to handle but I feel like the professors are preparing us for the real world of journalism, which will also be challenging."

"The program is intense and really helps you prepare for the similarly demanding field you get into after graduation. The pros are the tuition - it's a public university, so it's much, much more affordable than Columbia or NYU, with a great set of professors - as well as the program itself, which is great with adapting with the times. The only con is the workload, which is so heavy at times that it feels like you're working for five different news outlets. Sometimes students are stretched too thin and aren't able to give each project the amount of attention it deserves."

"The CUNY SChool of Journalism is great because it is a small program that really is focused on making sure students are better journalists. Not only are the professors there to give whatever help they can, but so are is the Dean. They are very proud of work that their students produce and make a point to showcase that. It's very affordable and right down the street from the New York Times that really help students put their work into perspective from time to time."

"What I like about CUNY School of Journalism is that is for people who want to learn more the craft of journalism and all that it encompasses. I like that it's an accessible school for anyone and is not intimidating. You feel comfortable right away through the application process with current students and the admissions committee helping you along the way. The opportunities that school offers is also great. As a journalist is can hard to find steady work and they are there to help us transition into bonafide journalists."
