Ria from Hollis, NY
I love Queens College. The atmosphere is so friendly and there's so much diversity. Most of the professors are really interesting and they know what they're doing.
Jessica from Jackson Heights, NY
Having already completed my Associates Degree at a local Community College, I'm attending Queens College for my BA and eventually my MLS. The commute into Queens from Long Island is 100% worth it for the attentive and helpful professors that are always willing to go the next step for their students in the classes they teach. I'm looking forward to returning there this Fall and having the opportunity to expand on my knowledge of literature and to better my writing skills.

CUNY Queens College is a diverse school with incredible teaching staff. The grounds are well-kept, the view of Manhattan is breathtaking, and resources available to students are abundant. Queens College is a place where students learn both in and out of the classroom, and grow into better people.
