If you don't major in any kind ofBrightJournalism
If you don't major in any kind of business program then this school is awful. There is no such thing as a student life, and the frat boys that go to Baruch College killed another student (Michael Deng) so you could say that the students who participate in what little student life there is are horrible human beings. There's no campus, food is awful, the administration is awful, the Weissman school of Arts and Sciences is awful and half-assed. The inside of the campus looks like a scene from Prison Break.

But all of that seems tolerable in comparison to the Journalism Department. I thought that their program would be decent since Baruch College claims to be the best CUNY, but I was wrong. All of the professors that teach journalism at Baruch College either never had teaching experience or have never taken a course in journalism (meaning they don't know anything about journalism), most of them are horrible. Especially Professor Carl Rollyson?he's a really old man that's written 40 irrelevant books about biographies and reviews?he has no insight to teaching a journalism course. He once publicly scrutinized a students assignment in front of the whole class, and he did it in such a unprofessional and nasty manner anyone would think he's a horrible person. That student later had a nervous breakdown and left in the middle of class, why did the college hire him as a professor is befuddling (they hired him because he got 40 b.s. reviews & books published not because he can teach.) Carl Rollyson is the worst professor at Baruch College, especially in their english/journalism department.This school is only okay for business major, and slightly useful for public affairs major, but DO NOT BE FOOLED BE THE RANKINGS.The rankings at Baruch College are deceitful this school runs as well as a DMV during its busiest hours. Non-majors and especially science majors DO NOT APPLY!

Beware students that may have to take theBrightEconomics
Beware students that may have to take the department Calculus 1 and 2 courses 2205- THEY ARE FLAWED. From the textbook itself (written by the head of the math department) with numerous errors including many wrong answers, and other tools provided are insufficient to learn the course material. Myself along with many other students feel betrayed and misled by this particular segment. At least have your course material in sync with your department final, but none of this is present. You will need to know this material prior to entering this school. This is just their way of weeding through students but it is wrong and completely unfair to suddenly raise the bar on a department final without holding your end up to par for those to meet. SOMETHING SERIOUSLY NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS BARUCH.

Baruch College is aQuite BrightEnglish
Baruch College is a great place for an English major. The faculty in the English department are truly dedicated to their discipline and, more importantly, teaching.
