WHAT I LIKED

The nursing program is rigorous, the food can be improved, campus life is as good as can be expected

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

CUNY schools save you money but you sacrifice a big campus. Many students commute so making friends is harder, but there are many clubs to join

WHAT I LIKED

I do like that there are many people attending that are also prehealth and tend to want to be on the same path in life as me. Hunter also provides free tutoring and supplemental learning for a lot of the courses.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Though the cost of Hunter was very appealing to me, currently a lot of our elevators don’t work. For a college that relies on the elevators to get to classes that may be on the 14th floor, for example, this can be very frustrating. Also even though the college is known for being the sciences and prehealth centered, the prehealth office has events that are time-consuming and their requirements for a committee letter are much harder than I’ve seen in any other school. The science courses are ridiculously hard, largely because a lot of the professors teach in a manner that most people can’t learn well under. So you will be teaching yourself a lot if you take any of the science courses.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I liked the experience of the CUNY colleges, it is all connected into one big family all through the 4- years and 2-year colleges.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I did not like the compactness of the actual buildings. I think the actual amount of students on campus altogether is a little packed and squished.
