Three words: affordable, convenient, and over-crowded.
The only reason I came to York College because the transportation was convenient. Other than that, most of the people there are nice. It has any major.
Smile from Astoria, NY
CUNY York College is great school to apply to if you want the feeling that you're getting your tuition's worth. The professor's are accurate in their teachings and are understandable. Overall it is great to wake up in the morning knowing you are attending classes at York College.
Winnie from Elmont, NY
A large diverse population of students and professors from all walks of life and areas of the world. They are clubs and organizations that help people build life-long friendships. The faculty are actually more helpful than I expected, and keep their cool with stressed college students.
