Tuition is cheap, even for a non-New Yorker; there is a wide variety of classes scheduled throughout the week, which enables you to schedule classes on only two days a week or only during the nights, allowing you to work or take care of family the rest of the time.

Downers

It's generally a commuter school, and campus life is not all that active or fun; no real sports program to get behind; parking is miserable if you drive.

Comments

Has a decent reputation in New York, and if you're a native English speaker, you are at a tremendous advantage, given that a large portion of the student body is not.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great School to Attend... Just Make Sure You are Focused

Bang for the buck, I would rank Queens College up there with Baruch College in terms quality of education.

Downers

The red tape to get in to business programs and get classes are ridiculous.

Comments

This is an great school to get into especially for academics. The community may not be as close knit because it is a commuter school although the school has a dorm. There are many clubs and organizations to join to keep active. Just make sure are focused on getting your education. The school is rigorous especially the business school.

The professors were dynamic and interesting. Everyone was really nice. Campus is beautiful.

Downers

Not a good place for career guidance. The law school guidance was very helpful but many peers of mine had a hard time getting their first job.

Comments

If you are planning on going to grad school it is an amazing option. There is a good opportunity to succeed and learn a lot.

Great Education for a Great Cost

5.0 of 5 stars

March 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

1. The education you get is fantastic, especially compared to other undergraduate and graduate colleges in NYC.
2. High diversity in the student population.
3. Campus is pretty large and (for the most part) has up to date equipment (except for the chemistry department: some of their out-dated equipment makes chem lab pretty scary!).
4. A lot of extracurricular events and clubs to join. No excuse to not meet new people and experience new things.

Downers

1. A lot of professors are there just for the check, and some will openly tell you this in class. Some are there to supplement their pay from a "real college", or even spend the entire class reading notes to you.
2. Quite a few professors do not honor the "office hours" policy. If you go to talk to them during their office hours, some will kick you out every time.
3. A few tenured professors openly mock and insult students. I've had three separate instances of tenured professors spending the majority of the class talking about their personal lives, but will yell at you if you need ask a question or leave the room for a moment.

Comments

Overall, I definitely recommend Queens College. It consistently ranks high on the Princeton review for a reason. It offers a fantastic education which (in my opinion) rivals that of other, more expensive schools like St. Johns or even NYU. Campus is spotless, the facilities are up to date, and there are a lot of ways to meet new people while getting a quality education.

The college needs to address the faculty though. Many don't consider Queens College as a "real" college (their words) and phone it in. This is a shame since the college is wonderful.
