Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of this graduate program is that the labs are very modern and there are many hands on training exercise that mirror real world situations. Students get to interact with live systems that produce results whether they be negative or positive and they are allowed to learn from their mistakes. The cons of this program is that sometimes, the variety of classes that is needed to complete a program is limited. The number of faculty members for the department is also quite limited but the professors of the department are recognized as experts in the field. If the institution was to obtain a few more professors than they currently have, the department would grow and be more fruitful.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros --- beautiful campus in New York City. Diverse crew, quality professors. Cons --- living in the city is not very affordable, but that's hardly the fault of the school. Not totally current when it comes to modernizing their library, technology, etc. Also, beware of bed bugs. Don't sit on any cushion-chairs. Stick to the plastic ones.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

I feel that a lot of changes going on to my life. I feel that I am in different environment, new diversity, new faces, new professor, new facility, new routine, strict policy, and new friend. With all this experience I will gain new experience and I feel stronger and better in dealing with education, communication and inter personal relationship with different nationality and culture. I am more flexible with my time, new family and friend.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

It is a strong program with rigorous coursework. I received great support and advice from my graduate adviser. I think that the program should offer more evening courses for those students who want to have a full-time or part-time job while in school. I feel as if some of the professors are more focused on their own research rather than the actual class that they are teaching.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

City college has offered me a wide variety of classes. It is an excellent school so far that challenges their students. I have been able to work hard and maintain a good relationship with my professors. Professors are always available as well as advisors and always willing to lend a helping hand. I would not change my school for anything.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The school's graduate program for working adults so far has been a great match and allows one to do the required school work while being full-time. There are not many available financial aid resources with the exception of loans which as an undergraduate one already has many to deal with. Overall, the course materials are at the level of hard graduate work.
