I love lehman college.BrightNursing
I love lehman college. Eventhough many say that lehman college feels like high school which i agree to some point and students are like childish yah that's true. I have heard that you learn nothing in lehman utter wrong.. yes this is college and you have to learn it. if u study well that's what u get. the professors are extremely helpful but the problem is the campus feels like high school.i would suggest that if you don't have enough money or come from a poor family this college is for you. tuition is cheap.Yes a lot of learning like any other college.i have to spend so many hours to get gud grades on my subject.. why waste 40,000 bucks giving to private schools and pay loans through out life. i don't care but wht matters is the education. professors extremely helpful.if u r not satisfied with lehman, then save money during undergrad and look out 4 a better school 4 ur graduate studies. But any wayi loved Lehman college and am thankful to all the professors who taught me.. most of the professors have phds and has extreme knowledge in their respective areas. In lehman, there is not much extracurricular activities except soccer or swimming..For getting in to nursing program, it is extremely hard and the hardest one in new york.However, i 'm transferring out of lehman bcuz it is hard to get into lehman nursing program. other majors it is easy.

I was pleasantly surprised with the faculty atBrightEnglish
I was pleasantly surprised with the faculty at Lehman. I received my undergrad and graduated with honors. the students range from extremely bright to ignorant and looking for a free ride. I think Lehman works for Students that want to experience College and have a challenge. the campus is not great and the area is terrible but it's the bronx so you get what you pay for, on the plus side, I had amazing professors in the English, Philosophy depts and also pretty good professors in other depts. The english dept. is top notch and the faculty is friendly and extremely helpful. Advisement sucks but unfortunately, I've never been to a school where advisement, financial Aid, bursar etc is friendly and helpful. I suggest this school as a good jump off point for a student who is unsure of which path to take but wants a solid collegiate experience. I am also going to attend their masters program so it wasn't as bad as I thought!

I wish I had had the opportunity toEnglish
I wish I had had the opportunity to pursue my teaching career earlier. I was employed for many years in fields that were either not related or slightly related to my college major. I took the jobs I did because it was convenient to raising my own children. Once my children were old enough, I returned to my true profession--teaching.
