Most Helpful Review for CUNY Hunter College

The professors here at Hunter are very knowledgeable and are also very diverse. Most of the professors that I have had so far are very fair and are also very helpful. Just make sure you read your syllabus before hand so that you are never behind, because once you are behind it's hard to catch up. There is a lot to learn at Hunter, including different cultures and ethnicities.

    Hunter College is a very competitive school. For all the different programs. majors, especially pre professional programs you will see students running around trying to do everything at once to compete and be the best for that program or to go into that program. Science classes as you may have already heard, do not have the best reputation. They are so hard and made complicated for some reason. Many students try to get the e-permit to take them at other colleges but that will also look bad in your transcript, especially if the class you decide to take outside if a major course. They know they make it hard on us, thats why I assume they want to see us work hard and get through it. Biology and chemistry classes for example are held in the auditorium of the oldest building and number of students would not be less than 200. The school have so many clubs. activities, groups, extracurricular activities, etc, for every student. Whatever you are into, you will find a club or group to join and share your ideals. It is something I love about Hunter, you will find your stop and your people. As in almosr every place, theres the professors and stuff that don't make the day any shiner but there's definitely the ones who do. So far, I vae met real nice one and I have had very helpful and caring professors. Hunter college is also very well known and have partnerships or agreements with institutions to help students engage with the things they plan to persue in grad school. For example, there is workshops held at the Presbyterian Hospital of Weill Cornell that for us, students planning on med school is very helpful and encouraging. I personally love my school, and I'm glad it is a competitive school because that is what makes one work harder and get the best out of us to succed and get to our goals. Be a Hunter Hawk !!!

    This school is located right around the east side of Central Park where you could relax and walk during your breaks. It also offers different courses such as anthropology, biology, mythology, media, and much more. In addition, it has a cafeteria which offers pizza, pasta and sushi.

    Being a commuter college, people come in and out. Making friends can be difficult if you are an introvert so getting out of your comfort zone is key. There is a lot of resources to help with being a student though.

    I have been here for 2 semesters and I love my classes. Quality education, at half the price. A wide range of departments if you're still undecided on a major.

    Hunter is among the best of all of the CUNY schools, with a very diverse student body, and a pretty nice campus for the urban setting. It is located in one of the nicest parts of the city (Upper East Side), and it is a very affordable college. It also has one of the best nursing programs in the city, and there are also some really fun and interesting courses you can take here (there is a course about the legacy of the Beatles and their music!).

    Hunter College offers academic standing that is possibly challenging and the most preparing around the city. Hunter college has a very diverse atmosphere that adds more to the experience of the college, only downside, since it's a commuter school everyone basically leaves after class is done. Though, it doesn't take away from the affordable, well academic college.

    Good school for the money. Not much of a campus, but Manhattan is your campus. Administration could be better sometimes, but you just need to know where to look to get the most help.
