I hate this school.Super BrilliantCommunications
I hate this school. The rules are stupid, and this school is a black cloud cause everyone smokes. The tution here is about $35,000/yr, but yet the school still looks like shit. The mony goes to paying Freshmen Advisors like Deennis Gannon who stares at you and doesn't advise you in anything cause he's too stupid. He probably graduated top of his class at St. John's. In all honesty this school is garbage and i wouldn't recommended it to my worst enemy. No person should have to live in this hell.

I don't even know where to start withQuite BrightJournalism
I don't even know where to start with this school. First off, if you're living on campus expect EVERYTHNG to be broken. Washers and dryers NEVER work and take your money. If you try to get it back you'll be told that they only give laundry refunds on two specific days each month. WTF is that?! I was in a suite meant for 7 but they squeezed 10 of us in there. You don't get a kitchen but there are cupboards. Unfortunately their doors fall off every time you open one. The dining hall is disgusting and closes mad early. There are always dead birds on the sidewalk and no one can figure out why. Teachers don't respond to emails and talk about themselves all class. Living on campus is pretty much like stayin at your high school 24/7. It's diverse but segragated. Visitation rules are ridiculous but it's easy to sneak alcohol in. Campus parties usually get broken up but as long as you don't give em a hard time they'll over look the liquor. There are always parties just off campus and clubs in the Queens area. Unfortunately that means people come back wasted every night and when they puke all over your door YOU will be forced to clean it up. Classes are a joke. I listened to my iPod every class and still got straight A's. 5 out of the 10 girls in my suite are transferring next year. Don't waste your time.

Seriously, this school sucks.AverageAccounting
Seriously, this school sucks. okay, well not everything. But the visitaion policy sucks. This school is all about making money to spend on themselves off of poor college students by any means necessary. They try to pretend that they care deeply about their student, when really they don'g give two shits about thier "college experience." The food sucks, the main dining hall failed inspections REPEATIDLY. They try to cover up all thier scandals, so I wonder what else has been going on...
