    Absolutely amazing school!!! Highly recommend to anyone who likes making connections with teachers rather than just being another name on the attendance sheet.

    Unfortunately, due to extreme weaknesses in administrative and policy-related aspects of the college, my experience here has been much less than enjoyable. It is extremely hard to find correct information about policies, and no one seems to know exactly what the real rules are. The policies that you do find out about are sometimes ridiculous. I've had terrible problems, especially, with guest policy and residence life. There seem to be unwritten rules about guest policy, that even the handbook, residence life, and student life meeting don't tell you. Also, the resident director I had to deal with during one guest problem was extremely unprofessional and unhelpful. The security is terrible and they only check IDs, seemingly, on a whim. Each security guard seems to have a different idea of how to handle guest passes and whether or not you have to show them your ID before entering the building. I have had a very high number of unnecessary and stressful situations to endure, already, this year. They have a lot of work to do in terms of determining regulations and establishing better school-wide communication.

    The campus is beautiful and the location is great. The best city in the world, New York City, is your backyard only a 30 min subway ride away. The activities on campus unfortunately aren't in surplus. Clubs are prevalent but not very extensive here. The food isn't the best!
