The City University of New York City College - Comments and Student Experiences|
The students are idiots from NYC public schools. The teachers are garbage, especially Mr. Sargut. What a douche. If you keep your mouth shut, look stupid and do your work, you will get all A's.
This school is a scam against the poor. They will bill you and hold your diploma indefinitely for a bill you never incurred.
The staff here is useless. Lots of ghetto ignoramuses handling academic matters.
The mental health dept will constantly harrass you into going to meet with them as it is a husband/wife grant sucking scheme. Mr. Gonzalez/Rodriguez is a bozo loser.
I cannot explain how horrible a school this really is. Teachers never follow the syllabus, the Econ Calculus requirement is made to screw students out of tuition as the Calculus teachers are often aholes who suck at life in general.
Avoid this school at all costs unless you just go there for your Core classes and transfer to Lehman College.
If you get into Lehman, BY ALL MEANS GO TO LEHMAN COLLEGE.
CCNY was the worst years of my life.
Many professors do not even follow the textbooks which makes it a bit difficult to find sources where you can review or look back to for reference. Many professors criticize students rather than explain or point out their flaws in a professional manner.
Even advisors criticize students and look down upon them for ridiculous reasons. Due to this and many other factors I would say that coming to City College was the worse decision of my entire life. Rather than leave, I continued to stay believing that matters would improve. There were some good semesters and many were bad. Sadly, the bad semester outnumber the good ones.
The Career Center is also another problem. It caters mostly to students of Engineering, Biomedical, Psychology and Economics. The staff does a wonderful job helping these students with their resumes, cover letters and even interviewing procedures, but when it comes to students from other fields they do not help to the extent that they do with the students of those majors mentioned above. With these type of students but the college is not comprised of only these types of students.
In the end, I stayed in Studio Art with a focus in Electronic/Graphic Design. Even throughout other departments I have faced similar situations and at the end I passed the classes but barely learn anything new. The purpose of going to college is to learn new material or expand your knowledge on a specific subject area. This has not happened at City College. I will be graduating in May of 2010 and looking back at my years spent here it was a total waste.
