Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017
"The psychology program at CUNY Hunter College is an exceptional program. I learned how to read statistics and be able to apply it to a plethora of my studies. Additionally, I was able to learn how humans develop, learn, and grow. The psychology program at Hunter College gave me the tools to be able to emphasize and relate to a diverse group of individuals, because I was able to understand the development of humans, socially, biologically, and emotionally. I know that the psychology program has given me the tools to apply all that I have learned to my future studies in nursing, where I will be the caretaker of diverse populations and communities."

"Hunter College has a very strong Biomedical Sciences Program. For all Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry majors, it is a great place to obtain education if your goals are to go into Medical School, or work in the biomedical field. Professors are excellent and are able to answer all questions. The career development journey is simple thanks to various advisors who constantly work to help you build the best portfolio."

"CUNY Hunter College provides a high quality education at an affordable price. I was thoroughly satisfied with my professors who were attentive and always willing to meet during office hours. They challenged me to analyze society from a variety of vantage points. They encouraged me to question the status quo, be open to views that differ from mine, and learn to form my own philosophies and theories. Hunter is also great because of the diversity of its student body. You share classrooms with people of different racial and socioeconomic backgrounds who hold very different religious and political views. I would say the one draw back of Hunter is the CUNY system itself. Administration is pretty slow in getting things done, especially Bursar. Other than that, I had an amazing four years at Hunter and graduated debt-free because of how affordable the tuition is."

"I returned to college to finish my BA. I didn't realize I could just take the remaining 8 credits but had to take 21 more. A blessing in disguise. Changed my major from Art to Sociology. My professors were young and passionate about their subjects, they motivated me to want to go further to gain a MSW. Being located in a major city, the diversity in the school was phenomenal. The class subject caused conversations to be very personal and I gained insight into the lives and concerns of students from other regions of America, various countries, and ethnicities. Classes though large, were small enough to delve into sociological problems and concerns. I attended evening classes and found my classmates might have been more serious than day students, the majority were working and continuing their education after work. No small effort, most were A and B students. My professors were most helpful, making time to meet with me, tutor me, and giving advice to aid my classwork. The only disappointment was that upon graduation I felt I could not get a job in the helping services field without my Masters in Social Work. I would highly recommend Hunter College to any student considering this school."

"Although many students are quick to disregard CUNY schools, Hunter College is definitely not a school that should be shrugged aside. Hunter College not only provides a wide range of coursework that will allow a student to learn from a multidisciplinary perspective, but also the services and staff (advisors, professors, etc.) provide both students and alumni with outstanding support that is hard to find just anywhere. For example, although some very specific classes require departmental permission to register for, almost all Hunter College courses can be registered for online. Classes are offered throughout the day and evening, giving students ample opportunity to work and still take the courses they need. Hunter College also has great libraries and online databases that will help students excel during their undergraduate career as well as beyond graduation, considering that these tools are still available to alumni free of charge. Additional support can be found through academic advisors and the Career Development Services center. Advisors are also available at a wide range of times and via email. They are very helpful when it comes to the various questions you may have along the way or if you just need advice regarding your academic path. Each department also has its own specialized advisors that can assist with questions specific to your major/minor. Additionally, the Career Development Services center helps students build their resumes, practice for interviews, and obtain jobs and internships. This service remains available to alumni free of charge as well. Outside of this wide range of support, the courses offered at Hunter are top notch. Not only will you definitely be able to find a field you're interested in, you will also be able to pursue more than one field and obtain honors is various ways. For example, there is a prestigious honors program called the Thomas Hunter Honors Program, which guides students in gaining a multidisciplinary education and offers special course work that will open your mind and expand your range of knowledge. There are also major-specific honors that can be obtain through various departments, such as Psychology Honors which can be obtained by writing a thesis paper via an internship placement. The coursework is challenging, but not overwhelming - as long as you stay on top of your studies and reach out for help when you need it, you will find that attending Hunter College is highly fulfilling. Hunter College provides you with all the tools you need to succeed and helps you overcome obstacles you may face, whether it's not knowing which courses to take or needing interview experience. As long as you utilize all that is available to you, you will conquer your undergraduate studies. Overall, the support and experience you will obtain throughout your undergraduate career at Hunter College is invaluable in preparing you for a future once you graduate - whether obtaining a job or pursing graduate school training - you will be ready to take the next step and have enough experience to be successful."

"I attended Hunter College during my undergraduate years of college. If I were briefly describe Hunter College, I would describe the college as a prestigious college in which student are pushed towards their academic success. Hunter College provides a variety of programs where students can and will be prepared for their future academics. At Hunter College, I majored in English Language Arts and Childhood Education. I officially attended the School of Education Program where I graduated with my Bachelor's of Arts in Education. During my time in the Education program, I gained a vast amount of knowledge pertaining to education. The program allowed me to complete filed work hours and gained experience working with children. Now as a graduate of the program I am now working in my field as a teacher. I also passed all of my certifications as well as receiving my license to teacher. I am forever grateful to Hunter College for pushing me towards my now academic success."

"In my five years as a college student, CUNY Hunter College has been an overall engaging and growing experience for me. I had transferred to Hunter from CUNY College of Staten Island two years back and am glad to have done so. CSI was not by any means a bad college, in fact, when comparing it to Hunter in the city, I have to say that I greatly miss their campus. Being in class at 7AM, was a lot more enjoyable at CSI with the beautiful nature that Staten Island offered. My mornings back in CSI would normally start with the company of geese waddling about rather than angry drivers. However, it did feel as if I was not growing as an individual back in CSI; until I got into Hunter. CUNY Hunter College, if anything, feeds off the participation of students and everyone is encouraged to get involved in various things. While clearly not all faculty at the college, the majority of the professors I have taken were thoroughly welcoming and have molded me with their, not only educational but life advice. I have grown and learned more in my two years at Hunter than in my four years of high school, and my two years at CSI."
