They make lehman college to be this bigNot so bright
They make lehman college to be this big of a deal. When in reality, it's full of snobs and arrogance, especially in the admissions office. I will never recommend anyone fresh out of High School to attend this type of school. I had a very bad experience with the administrative part of the school and if they look bad the rest of the school is bad as well. The administration office is supposed to represent their college where they supposedly lend out support not put you in a position where you have no choice. Encouraging people to go to a school they do not benefit from to finish their degree and not be able to attend Lehman as a Freshman to start over, is a big NO...No. Lehman lacks understanding of humans and they function as robots with no feelings and no care in the world how they treat others. I feel that this college needs a makeover....a new administrative staff to answer people's questions, not some know it all who's only arrogance would be enough reason not to attend this stupid, low rated school. I feel also, that with a school in the Bronx area, they should step down their high horse and treat everyone with respect no matter if their GPA is below a 2.0. They don't even give anyone a chance to succeed. They put you down no matter what. They are hungry for money and they have no real ethics on how to run a college much less a not so great one!!!! Look elsewhere to accomplish your goals, take it from an expert.

Lehman College lacks any sort of college quality.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Lehman College lacks any sort of college quality. The administration is almost never present, students are apathetic and uncaring about their education, almost no extracurricular activities exist, and student participation is almost nil. Most of the population is comprised of students whom attend class because family or friends persuaded them to, and do not find participation in class or extracurricular activities necessary.

It can also be said that most students are lacking in intelligence. Classes usually consist of adult-learners, and most classes are tailored to non-english-speaking students. Courses are not challenging, and it is expected that most students will graduate without being able to find a decent form of income. I suggest avoiding this school regardless of your reason for attending; I am leaving this school after this semester, and will not look back on it at all.
