What Students Are Saying

3.26 Average Rating
Brooklyn College has a beautiful campus in which a student can be in the city but not feel like they are in the city while on campus. There are many opportunities and resources that are available to the students to help them get internships and academic help.
Krystal from New York City, NY
Brooklyn College is honestly an amazing school and I'm very glad that I chose it over other CUNY's. Not only is the campus really beautiful (we were ranked #1 Urban College in America! few years back), but also the professors and the staff are truly gifted and wonderful people. Like some say, it really is the Poor Man's Harvard in a sense that the education is excellent but also is quite affordable.
I'm glad I go here ! :)
Aziza, a student in BC
I love Brooklyn college. The campus is beautiful and it is a great environment. The professors are great just work hard.
Cyn from Brooklyn, NY
Brooklyn College employes the most phenomenal teachers, whose main focus is to help the students succeed. The administration process in the school is fast, and simple. The school advisors helped me register for the proper classes for my degree.
Viktor from Brooklyn, NY
Brooklyn College has an amazingly beautiful campus in Brooklyn. Outside the perimeter, you have a vast amount of restaurants during your long hours of school. Brooklyn College has professors willing to help you and a variety of good and bad but mostly great professor that are knowledgeable.
Sindy from Brooklyn, NY
brooklyn college is a great school. it has a beautiful campus, a variety of interesting courses and a very big resource-filled library. however, one thing lack in brooklyn college is the lack of a thriving social culture and atmosphere.
John from Brooklyn, NY
Brooklyn college has great professors and provides an incredible learning experience.
The tuition is very affordable and the quality of education I have received so far is very good.
Sometimes there are issues with finding help, mostly because most of the staff (aside from professors) is made up of students.
