I highly discourage anyoneQuite BrightArt & Design Department
I highly discourage anyone from attending Hunter. The faculty do not care about their students. No one was ever about to help me, or any of my friends. The curriculum is a joke, and the teachers are not very open minded. This was the worst time of my life. So glad I left this awful school.

Food - Cafeteria has a B health grade,Quite BrightEconomics
Food - Cafeteria has a B health grade, I got food poisoning once from the chicken and fries. It's way too expensive to get food poisoning here, if you're going to make your students sick, at least lower your prices by 1/2 of what you're currently charging.

Facilities - Expect at least 1-2 bathroom stalls to be broken on every floor, don't be shocked to see roaches. Escalators and elevators are broken constantly, it must be a nightmare navagating this school with a disability. Also, expect leaky ceilings, broken projectors and mics in classrooms, broken furniture, and broken heating/air conditioning in certain classrooms. Get ready for a 90 degree 3 hour lecture on 7th floor West!

Extracurriculars - There are none. Well, there are some, but none that are worth joining. Hunter makes you jump over so many hurdles to start/reregister clubs that a good chunk of the semester is already over by the time clubs go through a month's worth of beuracracy, elect their officers, and get their budget. Expect for a sizable portion of clubs to meet maybe twice a semester. Hunter's a D 3 school so no one cares about sports. There's nothing much to do on the Upper East Side either unless you're a trust fund kid who can spend your parents' money at Chanel on Madison 2 avenues over. Go downtown if you want to have fun.

Final comments - People who go here really don't care about making friends. They're more than content to show up to class and then go home. Don't expect any smiles in class or the halls, or any kind of conversation to happen spontaneously, people here have their heads shoved so far up their own behinds that they couldn't care less if you dropped dead in front of them in the hall. Also the hour commute will make you go insane about a month and a half into the semester.Go somewhere else!
