These schools are similar to CUNY Bernard M Baruch College in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.

It is very tun and has been educational
Baruch is known for accounting but ironically the worst classes and the worst professors are in the business departments. The liberal arts (Weissman) department professors in general are surprisingly much better teachers than the business professors. These liberal arts professors are hidden gems.
Academics: Business courses and professors are terrible. Social life aspect: Baruch is a commuting school so social life is pretty much non-existent. Students already have their own cliques. If you want to make friends, I recommend joining a club.
I like how challenging the curriculum is and I do enjoy the campus very much.
What I didn’t like is how in some courses there are no good professors available to sign up for, so at times you’ll get a professor who won’t out too well for you.
I love the environment because it's in my favorite part of the city! Baruch just feels like home, that's all!
The lack of many "good" professors and how classes get full so fast.
I'm still working on finishing my undergrad degree at Baruch, but even so, I'm very pleased with the experience. While not personally engaged in any club activities, there are so many to get involved with, and those in charge of the clubs do their best to help people feel welcome and eager to join. It is a commuter school, and I am one of the many who travel in from parts of New York City that are not Manhattan, but I am still loving my time at Baruch. Most, if not, all, of the professors I've learned from have all been pleasant individuals who want you to leave their class understanding what has been taught, not just earning a grade, and I have the utmost respect for them.
From what I can remember and from the bits I've heard from other students, I know that the Business school is pretty ruthless. It's worth it- Baruch takes great pride in its School of Business as a whole- but it is very intense and competitive.
