What Students Are Saying

3.32 Average Rating
Do not procrastinate. Take advantage of your professor's syllabus to plan out how and when you'll get assignments done. For example, a 12-page paper won't seem very daunting if you write a page a day or outline it weeks before it is due.
Justin from Staten Island, NY
study hard in school and do your research so you know if a college has exactly what you're looking for.
jenna from queens, ny
if you need to work with the staff in the administration building, give yourself enough time to get everything done; there can be a lot of leg work when getting new id's, printing a bill, etc.
Brittany from Harker Heights, TX
Even if you are not sure of what major you want to choose, you can start off by taking classes that almost every major is required to take. As well as free electives. After 2 semesters, I am sure that you will find out what major you are really interested in. If you are already positive of your major, everything is much easier. You will be able to take all the classes you need without wasting any time or money.
Melanie from New York, NY
CCNY offers a lot of programs and services to help students advance in learning. This college contains a Daycare, Disability Services, Career Center, Counseling Center, and many others. I have even used the online Writing Center's service to ask questions a tutor live!
Cherrelle from Amityville, NY
Make sure you are on top of everything in terms of student records, school plans, and all admin work.

Feel free to explore every part of City College! The library is usually very quiet, and I've always been able to find a computer to work on. I've encountered a number of interesting people from many different parts of the country that come a long way to attend City College. I would suggest to make positive connections with other students and groups, and make sure the professor your going to have is the one for you.
Denise from New York, NY
A lot of trains you can take to get here. 1, A, B, C, D.
Vanessa from Brooklyn, NY
Before registering for your courses, cross check the professors with ratemyprofessors.com! You'll have a much better idea of what to expect; as I said before, not everyone is a winner. In addition, if you are planning to have two classes in a row, try to ensure that they're in the same building. The campus doesn't look big at first, but if you only have 5 minutes to get to where you need to go, it may not happen.
