"The City College of New York is an excellent institution, and offers many opportunities to students of different backgrounds. It was a pleasure to be part of this school. The Architecture department specifically was very rigorous, but also offered the opportunity to explore various ways one could improve the quality of life of people, by becoming better designers and architects. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at CCNY" - Jacline Vargas

The City College of New York focuses on expanding the horizons of those that attend through lectures, workshops, and rigorous courses. The many services offered such as tutoring allow the students to perform well academically as well as socially through school and club created events. City College has created an environment in which everyone has a place to fit in which creates the immense diversity the school is known for. It is a college which I feel is highly under appreciated.
