    Queens College is a great school with such diverse people. You learn about different cultures and societies just by walking around in the campus alone. The campus itself is beautiful since you can see Manhattan from the quad on campus. The environment is wonderful since it is full of nature which I personally love. Everyone I have met is extremely friendly and warm, always helping you when in need. I love this school and will surely miss it when I graduate next semester. If you get accepted, don't miss out on a great opportunity to attend this school.

    The classes remains silent all the time. Students seemed to only be motivated to get a degree or get a job afterwards, but there is not too much learning going on here. Not many people go to clubs and since most student commute to school and not many people are not interested to stay after school. I am commuting, but I have seen the dorms around here, they are pretty nice to live in.

    I love how this school has events throughout the year including Fall Fest and Spring Fest. There is also Midnight Breakfast during finals, which always proves to be a great time. QC likes to make their students active by constantly having student groups interact with other students. There always seems to be something going on and campus is never too boring.
