| I haven't even started classes yet but I already detest Hunter so far. When I first got Hunter's acceptance letter, I was kinda excited because I have heard good things about Hunter: the fact that it's a good education at a great price.|
First off, the aesthetics of Hunter are so bad IMO. Everything looks like it's falling apart. You would think a college that has such a good reputation, they would at least try to keep themselves in shape. Almost all the floors look run-down and old.
Secondly, Hunter administration SUCKS. They are not friendly nor helpful. Every time I call the freshman services for help on registration for classes, the people on the other line always gives me an attitude. Really? You could at least pretend to be friendly. The entire course system is so confusing and complicated for no reason. They claim you need to take all these pre-requisites that you don't even need and then in the end, it's just money being thrown away because you're forced to take irrelevant classes in order to graduate.
I've visited the college a number of times and the student body needs some work as well. They are not friendly at all and most of them just keep to themselves, I've noticed. I could already tell they are closeminded and cliquey. Once I was walking into the West Building (I think it was), and there was like a bunch of people sitting outside and when they saw me, they gave me these dirty looks.
Yeah so I'm already hating it and I'm really hoping I get to transfer out of here. The only reason I'm here is because I need to save money because I don't have much financial aid. But I'm gonna try getting scholarships and getting the heck out of this hell hole!I warn you guys... do not come here.

| I am a Media Studies major and I am overall disappointed with Hunter. It is one of the most mentioned of the CUNY colleges and it is said to be a "Best Value" from the Princeton review and I guess that's all there is to it. I suppose one can get a "decent" education from Hunter paying a relatively low tuition but I'm disatisfied. The building is in disrepair and is in need of renovation, the lighting is depressing fluorescent lights, the bathrooms are gross, the sinks are these plastic looking bowls and none of the stalls have a hook to hang your bag(it's like they are all broken or was taken down). I expected to be challenged coming from a community college, but I've never been so bored in a semester as this. I'm not assigned much homework from my classes the tests are fairly ok so long as you study for them. I have not found it too easy to make friends here as a transfer student, everyone already seems to be friends with one another. The only place I've gotten a good vibe from is the Center for Career Developement, although they take a while to review your resume/cover letter. The neighborhood does not offer much except visiting the park in good weather. Definitely look closely at this school before deciding to come here and go to an open house and see the school for yourself. After one semester, I will be transfering out to another school. I feel unchallenged, unhappy with the buildings which are uninspiring, run-down and depressing looking, the professors are ok but the I don't feel I'm getting much of anything out of the classes. It's time to move on. |
