"This school is horrible. I am glad its my last year. The architect department is bias and corrupt. They pass students who do little to no work to meet their quota. The desks and computers are filthy. Favoritism is rampant and you have professors that help you cheat to pass. I am a B Arch student here and I graduate next year and I am happy to leave. If you want a good education, do not come here. They do not train you well here. I plan to pursue my masters at a private school. This school is decay."

"Very hard to learn in a hostile environment. Instructors enjoy intimidating students. The college is also extremely dirty. The walls and floors are never clean. There are broken blinds on the windows. Even the dental clinic is dirty. I was actually asked by someone who oversees the cleanliness of the college to walk around, take pictures, and to send them to their dept. They know students get stressed, and most will comfort themselves with food. They have vending machines with junk food on every floor, as well as an ice cream machine. There should be healthy options for students to choose from."

"There are professors teaching at this college that need to retire. There was one professor who did not have the knowledge to teach. She would say things that were completely untrue and she didn't make any sense. There are also a number of professors who bully and humiliate the students. I saw it happen too many times. The chair and dean do nothing to help these students. This is just a business and they just care about making money."

"Check their graduation rate . Only one class for a major/required course with ONLY 18 seat. (Referring to eet classes specifically). Like seriously?? They really want student to graduate late/ pay for extra years. It's nearly impossible for you to graduate on time. And when pleading them to add you to the class or add another class. THEY IGNORE YOU"

"Although the overall thought of City Tech is not as ideal to some when they think of the authentic college experience, I can be one to say that I did enjoy both my time there and this program. Each professor I came across and worked with instilled me with the necessary tools to be able to obtain success no matter what decision I made once graduating. The classes have proven to be both helpful and eye opening when it comes to what we should expect in the real world. And I enjoyed the fact that this was a major that opened doors to different job titles and you weren't stuck with one outlet of opportunity once receiving your degree. Overall, college is what you make of it. Going to a college at home doesn't mean your college experience isn't going to be something worth remembering or telling stories about. We tell kids in high school that it's better to go to schools that allow you to explore in order to see who you really are. But the reality of that is not everyone fits in the same perspective to where that authentic idea of college can be true. There is no " worst college" despite all that is said about community colleges. As long as there is an opportunity to make something out of yourself, no matter where you go for school, your college experience is a reflection of your creativity and how YOU made it to the best of your expectations. And even with going to City Tech, 20 minutes from my house and with a high school ranking of 7 out of 200, I had fun in my school."

"The Human Services program prepared me for work in the social services field. I learned a lot from the classes on counseling and the internship gave me the necessary skills to go out in the real world. The work isn't easy and one must be organized, but it is a great program to get your foot in the door of Social Work."

  • Degree: Nursing
"Beginning my journey in Nursing was a tough decision. One of the challenges was identifying a school to fulfill my educational requirements, providing me with my foundation to enter into this rewarding profession. Choosing City Tech was not only the best choice, but it allowed me to create lasting professional relationships. In 2007 I entered into Tech's 2 year Associate Degree program. The ciriculum was organized and focused on the core essentials to enter into professional practice. Clinical rotation sites were accommodating and afforded us hands on educational experiences. My favorite part of the curriculum was the Sim lab. During lab we were able to utilize critical thinking and analysis to manage disease states. If you are looking for a program dedicated to fostering your nursing knowledge-base and clinical practice, look no further. City Tech is a senior college so be prepared to continue your education through your Baccalaureate degree."

"City College is very diverse and very welcoming to students that come from all religious and ethnic backgrounds. City College offers community and unity. We like to call it the Harvard for poor kids. The tuition isn't too much, and the education is good."

"The diversity at CCNY is unmatched. I have made life-long friendships with people from all different background and cultures. The classes are challenging, but also exciting, You will love it there! Not a party school, so if that's your interest, you may want to look elsewhere."

  • Degree: Paralegal
"I started at New York City College of Technology in 2008 as a lower sophomore. The professors in my degree program which was Legal Assistant Studies were all either attorneys or retired judges. The curriculum was intense yet informative . I recommend the school to and program to individuals looking to enter the legal field in a supportive role as either a legal secretary or paralegal. Based on the well rounded curriculum in which a variety of courses in fields such as Bankruptcy, Family Law, Business Law, Real Estate Law are taken you are way ahead of the curve in terms of having a fundamental knowledge and understanding of your line of work. Additionally, the staff is super supportive from the Chairperson all the way down to front desk secretary. There are informal support groups that are formed with classmates as well as a computer room and access to Lexis Nexis. They have internship programs which are taken when getting your Associates and Bachelors degrees which allows you to get hands on work experience and also provides career and networking opportunities upon graduation. In summation I highly recommend my Alma mater New York City College of Technology Legal Assistant Studies Program"

"They have remodeled the outside of the school, it looks very eye-catching now. They have several buildings, which is pretty impressive since all the buildings have a theme and its located in the busy downtown bk. My major was in HVAC, and we had our own 4 floor building a few blocks from the main building. The reason i picked this school was because they were very helpful in planning out my financial aid. Other schools i applied to were either too busy or would expect you to figure it out- which turned me off, but in citytech they had a full staff on the first floor just for financial aid or advice in other needed resources for college. The professors were all good, but i made sure to check websites and professors gradings before i picked my classes. Most professors here teach in other schools, many in hunter or other cuny colleges. So the actual professors ratings for the college didnt matter since many prof are mobile from college to college. They have a nice library, very big and full of books. Nice gym, inside the college was decent, some floors looked more modern, while others looked like a high school. All in all its a huge school, and again it has several buildings spread out. They have a lot of degree options from hvac (what i did), construction, nursing, computers, etc. They have a huge list. I have no complaints from my years in this college, i loved my experience. I graduated and i work for what I studied for, many managers preferred my degree over other colleges like tci and apex, since citytech is tied to the cuny system. Despite making really good money i do wish to go back and get a bachelors, and possibly become a professor in hvac."

"This school offers a lot, but it gives a mediocre first impression. It's an urban campus that has been remodeled on the outside and only a little on the inside, which is kind of disappointing, the school is pretty run down inside. What I tell kids going into college is try to get into a better school, but this school is good for the cost, you'll learn a lot but I don't think it's a good choice if you aren't focused. like most junior colleges and state schools you can spend a lot of time here. A lot of the professors here are young though, and offer a lot of instruction in new technology, and graduated from good schools like Columbia and Pratt. There are also professors that have a lot of real experience. The school has fairly good resources too, there are plotters, laser cutters, a computer lab with lots of programs installed and 3d printers. I would say it's a good school, a good value, but try to get into a better grad school."
