Rebekah Marquez - 10/27/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018
"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."

Emily Smith - 6/25/2018
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Kristen - 3/6/2017
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016
"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 am currently a senior pursuing a psychology degree. I want to go into school counseling. I started out Queens College as a dual major with elementary education/ psychology. It is a very good college and definitely very rewarding. I would recommend Queens College to future students."

Lee Brando - 1/1/2017
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2000
"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."
