Question
I hate this school.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I hate this school. And these are my reasons...as an international student moving to New York, I obviously didnt expect to attend a huge college set on a huge campus...but this is ridiculous...first of all, the students. evryone acts straight from high school, and more importantly, joined Lehman with their friends from high school, so if ur hoping for a social life,forget it. school sports only exist in the basketball and swimming areas (sucks for soccer fans like me) the campus is small and beautiful and the teachers are really nice, they give it their all but its just the students that piss me off...everyone's on financial aid so they're not really paying a lot and thus do not appreciate the value of a good college education. no one takes advantage of the facilities and clubs...school spirit is again, lacking. I feel like a ghost, going into class, leaving class to go home...that's pretty much it. it's been a whole semester and I can honestly say i've made one friend who i'd like to hang out with outside school. if you're low on fees and are considering this school, forget it and go to hunter(heard it's better, and atleast has dorms) or go to one of the SUNY schools...way worth it.

Question
Lehman College ia typical of everything that isQuite BrightPolitical Science
Lehman College ia typical of everything that is wrong with the NYC public education system. The vast majority of its students are products of public high schools within the city, and it shows. Attending Lehman feels EXACTLY like attending high school did. The students are apathetic and uninterested in doing their work. I've been in many classes with exam averages in the 40's. Sometimes my professors are forced to curve an exam in such a way that a score of 50 can be passing. Excessive lateness and professors having to speak over half of the class are the norm. If you're serious enough about looking for a good college that you've managed to find this website, I strongly suggest you look outside of CUNY. However, if you live within NYC, attended a NYC public high school, and never gave much thought to your college education, then Lehman is for you.
