"Queens College is a great bang for your buck school. It offers a large variety of subjects to study for a reasonable tuition cost plus there are many programs to help fund your education. The campus is beautiful and has numerous groups, clubs, and extracurricular activities to take part in. My only compliant is that you have to stay on top of your counselors to make sure that you are on track to graduate on time. Otherwise, I highly recommend the school."

"Overall queens college was a great school to attend as the tuition was affordable and the quality of instruction was a great experience. I had a great share of professors who were more than helpful when it came to my classes, as well student life itself was a great time as well. Classes are fairly small in which the relationship with one's professor made the experience that much better. Financial aid was helpful in many way when it came to the school expense. Overall my experience as a whole was quite enjoyable and I would recommend anybody to attend the school."

"The special education masters program is a waste of money. I graduated with 4.0 and did not learn anything. The overall staff was very unhelpful. They lost papers that registered me for graduation. When I reached out to them after graduating to get paperwork fill out for my license in another state it took them three months to get back to me. When they did they were very disrespectful and unkind. I would not recommend going to Queens College."

"I studied at Queens College for my Masters in Education. I received my MAT in the Spring of 2005. This was a change of career degree for me. I originally graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a social services degree. However, I soon realized I was meant to be a teacher. The most important part of my education was receiving real world experience and access to what teaching was really like. Luckily, many of my professors were teachers or principals in the field already . This access to professionals in the field already was very important on my new journey. The classes were informative but I learned the most during my observation and student teaching semesters. Professors cared and nurtured my for teaching in each area. My thesis class was difficult but worthwhile because it helped me learn how to successfully conduct action research. Teaching is action research everyday. What better way to prepare for a lifelong career. The administrative offices were helpful too. In the end, it would have been a perfect program if we spent even more time in the classroom. However, overall it was a great experience and I have been teaching for over 13 years now!"

"I have attended a few different colleges, I didn't graduate with my Bachelors until I turned 30, and I didn't love a school until I attended CUNY Queens College. I went to schools where I dreaded advisement sessions because I felt my advisor wasn't listening to me or helpful at all, I was just another name on a list that they were trying to rush out the door. I went to a school where I couldn't get in touch with my professors outside of the classroom to ask for extra help. I attended schools that had gigantic lecture halls and others that had small intimate classes, schools in the city and schools in the suburbs. Queens College was the greatest school I attended and I don't think I could've had such an amazing experience anywhere else. The campus itself is a hybrid of metropolitan and suburban, with rolling lawns that look out to a gorgeous view of Manhattan. Professor's make themselves available in and out of the classroom, offering more meeting times outside of their office hours. All of the Professors are highly educated and love their subjects and genuinely care whether you understand the material or not. Academic advisement is a breeze with an online portal to help you know what you have left so you can register on your own. Or you have the option to meet with an advisor to discuss your path, an advisor who won't rush you out the door because there's a long line. Queens offers classes in large lecture halls, smaller more intimate classes, online classes, day classes, night classes, the variety is endless because it is a school that understands that not all students learn the same way. Extra help is offered in many different varieties as well besides Professors making themselves available there are writing labs, science labs- you name it and it's there. I loved attending Queens College so much I am going back for Grad School now, it took me a long time to find a perfect match for college and I think most people would love it as much as I did."

"Queens College has some incredible professors. I am often truly impressed with how intelligent and kind professors are. Of course, not every professor is great, but there are many that want the students to learn, and actually care about them. There is no coddling at QC, but if you ask for help, most professors will help you. The student body is also really diverse. I have learned an exorbitant amount about other cultures, both inside and outside the classroom."

"It is a pubic university and the tuition is low. Many of my classmates are motivated and strive for a better quality of life. I learn a lot from my classmates who come from many different backgrounds and ethnicity. Besides the regular course work, students are encouraged to integrate to the NYC tech community such as joining the CUNY Tech Meetup and participating in CUNY Startup Hackathon. It has a nice campus as well."

"Queens College is a very diverse college. Every day, I would navigate through campus and hear a minimum of 5 different languages being spoken. Additionally, the professors and faculty clearly express their desire for their students to succeed. The quality of the education I received was phenomenal, and the opportunities offered are truly remarkable. I intend on attending graduate school in the Fall, and I feel confident that Queens College has given me the tools required to succeed."

"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 thought that it was very convenient. I was able to work during the day, and attend classes at night. It was very affordable. There were many course options and times to attend classes, including weekends. I enjoyed the weekend classes very much."

"It is a public university so the tuition is much more affordable than other colleges. The quality of the education is great as long as you put in the effort. It is in one of the five Boroughs in NYC and there are a lot of things you can choose to participate for extra curricular activities."

  • Degree: Anthropology
"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."

"The literacy program in Queens College is great. The professors are really supportive and help you during the difficult time of finding a job. Plus, they really prepare you if you wish to be a reading specialist. However, the program is a little expensive while a person is trying to pay rent and work full time. Also, there is a summer course that we must take and we cannot take a loan because it is only one summer session, forcing students to pay on the spot. Aside from that Queens College will get you where you need to go with support."

"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."
