"The quality of education is top notch, and those of us who live in the city pay an obscenely low price. I did my Masters here and couldnt be happier with the education that I received. Professors were amazing and some are cutting edge leaders in their field. This school will not hold your hand, so its not recommended for people who cant self motivate. Their admin department can be challenged at times, so always best to deal with them early and long before any due dates. The school is well recognized and carries a great reputation, and Im using it to apply for doctorate programs now. Highly recommend. With the price of education at astronomical levels, Hunterss value is one of the best in the country."

"Hunter is an incredible school. I believe that Hunter really prepared me for graduate school. The science classes in Hunter are very rigorous and intense teaching students how to think in many different ways. Students definitely have to work hard but it does pay off. High recommend Hunter as an undergraduate program especially if youre going into the medical field."

"Hunter College was a great school to attend when I attended in 2013. The professors and overall campus atmosphere presented as welcoming. I originally started my degree studies majoring in Nursing but due to personal issues I had to change my degree to Sociology. The Nursing program was very competitive but its rigor most definitely was intentional and prepared my friends for the programs that were to follow after their undergraduate studies. The classes under my Sociology degree were very fair classes. Many of the professors I encountered while at Hunter College were helpful not reasonable people. If I were to identify an area that needed further development while I attended Hunter College, it would would be the financial aide office. I was not always best supported during my visits but I also feel like they needed better support internally to cater to the amount of students they had to process."

"Publicly available education is one of the great transformative agents of the past few decades. Free or affordable college education enabled many individuals to obtain degrees and enter new workforce strata. The City University of New York Hunter College (Hunter) is a public college with 150 years of experience educating and inspiring students. Hunter faculty are accessible and take the time to encourage their students. Hunter also has a great reputation within the City of New York. I greatly enjoyed my time at Hunter College and to this day faculty are just a phone call away for encouragement. However, the college is not as well known internationally or outside of New York and the career support office did not offer as many connections or opportunities outside of New York."

"The classes were challenging and thought-provoking. Some of the classes offered were also very interesting such as 18th Century Women Writers and Latino Communities in NYC. After a boring day at work, I would get a second wind after attending a class after work which only strengthened my resolve to continue my education. Going back to school while working full-time was probably one of the best times of my life. I enjoyed every minute of it. Not to say that it was easy breezy because I felt they expected my A-game which is why I was fully committed."

"Hunter College is a diverse, immersive, and influential school. Even though it is very crowded and makes scheduling classes a bit hard, it provides resources that every student needs, from the numerous floors of its library to the great Career Development Services it has. Since it is in the heart of New York City, everyday trends such as fashion, news and politics have a big impact on the College. Professors and students in every major and class are able to relate to each other and are able to discuss about everything that is going on in the world. For example, when the events of Occupy Wall Street came about, the College banded together to try and give the message for the people. The school does and will have a big influence on you, not just as a student but as a human being. One thing I would like to see improve at Hunter College is the addition of more classes and space for their Science programs. In my experience, being one student out of the other six hundred in the class can be very daunting, distracting, and distant. The crowdedness of the school is one of only a few factors that I criticize. But overall, I believe other students, especially from other parts of our world, can have a pleasant experience at Hunter College."

"Hunter College was a wonderful place for an undergraduate education. Graduation requirements include many courses outside of ones major to allow for a full and well rounded education. The classes are extremely difficult which makes the education that much more rewarding. Professors are usually very helpful with office hours and/or email responses if help is needed. Hunter also provides many resources for students who need extra help with all subjects. The only downside would be that some classes are very large in size and could be up to 600 students in a lecture hall. This requires a lot of independent study since the professors cant give individual attention to each student."

"Some of Hunter's campus facilities are in desperate need of an upgrade, but the school is centrally located. The staff are often overwhelmed, but they are friendly and helpful. Most of the professors teach from a place of passion, which is a great environment to learn in. Definitely make sure to establish a good relationship with a counselor, this would have helped me avoid lots of wasted time and confusion when I was ready to graduate. Beware of your time management, because like the rest of the people on staff counselors have limited time and will not always be near their office."

"I studied General Biology and Psychology at Hunter College, and these studies have prepared me for my future post- baccalaureate graduate studies that I will commence this summer at UCSF. Though most of the important science prerequisite courses were instructed at Hunter's assembly hall, I am confident that the knowledge that I have acquired in my undergraduate studies under the Biology and Psychology departments will prove themselves useful as I continue to move towards my goal of becoming a dental professional."

"I am grateful that Cuny - Hunter College exists because I was able to go to college and get a degree without being in debt. However, their Cinema Studies program is lacking in current technology and does not have enough opportunity to focus on a specific skill set (editing major, directing major, etc.) You will learn the basics and get by. I do appreciate the diversity in the students - all ages, races and interests. Because it is a CUNY they are understanding of a lot of people's different financial backgrounds and situations. But because there are so many people, it is hard to get the individual attention you may get at a smaller school. I had no help finding a job after college and I feel that is the downfall for this college. I feel the school may be stronger in Nursing and Teaching programs."
