| 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 know most students do not like Hunter. I however love it. I went a private University for my first year and it was hell. I couldn?t believe I was going to go into debt for professor who were not engaging, students from outside of NY who were excited by skyscrapers, and just your ?regular? get $hit faced nights.|
In Hunter, I have had many inspiring professors. Honestly! I must have gotten lucky since people here hate the faculty. I wasn?t learning about the boring history, for example, I was learning what we were never taught. And for a tuition this cheap, I was amazed that I love it.
I?m one of those snobby people, who looks down on CUNY but I am so happy I came to Hunter. It is affordable and engaging. It doesn?t cater to those rich people from the suburbs like private schools.
I feel some people do not like it because of the social life. There is none. If you make a friend or two, that is your social life. So explore the area towards downtown. Nothing uptown. Yes Hunter is a commuter school, but I prefer not seeing the same obnoxious people over and over. Also, who cares if the bathrooms are old as hell. And Wow, some are very old! Who care if Thomas Hunter looks like crap, we got three other decent buildings. Relax.
Also, there are many complaints about the services and how bureaucratic they are. I have had no trouble (so far).
I am just learning so much at this school. I have not really made many friends at this school, but I am happy I can at least afford it. I?m not stuck with rich, snobby idiots.
Hunter may not mean as much as some of those other schools, but I am happy hear after attending an ?elite? school.

| The classes are very demanding, I know this comparing my assignments with friends who attend other CUNY's or Private Schools. There will be no assistance to plan your classes, but the guideline is fairly easy, so you can plan your classes. My only qualm is that sometimes there aren't enough classes available to graduate, but luckily I have found ways around it and will be graduating on time. In terms of Social Life, yeah not happening unless you join a club or espouse really strong (liberal) views. Everyone else just comes to class and goes home. |
