| I attended Lehman College straight out of high school due to lack of finances. If you're looking for the "college experience" or to broaden your horizons as a person, this college ain't for you. It's a good mix of adult-learners and high schools students. Classes are very cut-and-dry and to-the-point. Do your work, do well on your tests, go home. The teachers are very bland and most of them teach straight out of a textbook. Classroom debates or deep discussions rarely occurred. |
The campus is quite pretty for The Bronx. Lots of trees, grass, and wild birds that fly in once in a while. The facilities(library, computer room, gym, cafeteria, etc.) are not state-of-the-art but they're good enough to get work done in, no complaints here. Tuition is also very cheap. The only out-of-pockets costs I had were transportation, food, and books.
After 2 years of going to this school, it dawned on me that this school isn't going to help me get anywhere. The teachers have no connections/networks and the school does very little in providing opportunities for quality internships. I eventually ended up joining the military(Air Force) and haven't looked back since.All in all, if you find yourself in this school, use it as a stepping stone to get an easy 4.0 GPA and transfer somewhere better. If you enjoy mediocrity, this school is for you.

| 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. |

| CUNY Lehman is excellent for those who work and wish to earn college credentials (in fact, I recommend it).|
For the price, you're getting a decent education. Indeed, most professors are knowledgeable in their subjects and are willing to help you with your studies.
However, the school's administrators are downright mean and condescending. I remember being sent to a particular office and after politely asking if I was at the right place, this lady yelled at me - 'Can't you read? This isn't where you're supposed to be. Now get out.' In all honesty, I was tempted to go Chuck Norris on her. I wish I could say that she was the only rotten apple, but she isn't - not by a long shot.
So I just transferred, but then again, I'm a guitar playing, Jimi Hendrix-worshipping, creative writer/ eighteen year old trying to find myself. Lehman wasn't for me, and it isn't going to be for you if you're looking for that 'college experience'.
Look into other CUNY or SUNY schools.
