Lehman College is, simply put, a safety school. This is where you should end up only if you can't afford to (or didn't have the grades) to get into a better college. While this is an accredited, four-year college, it is largely unknown outside of the city of New York (a sometimes deciding factor for employers as name recognition helps). Bright and talented students will feel out of place surrounded by mostly C-avg. High School graduates. I personally was in an English class where one of my classmates could not formulate whole sentences. During my time here, I did not participate in extracurricular activities because I saw no point in it, the college didn't emphasize it, or both. Administration is very catty but they won't give you a hard time, however it is obvious that these people don't necessarily like their jobs. The campus itself is small and there isn't much to see. The surrounding neighborhood is no better. The college only offers housing to international students if I remember correctly. I can comfortably say that at least 80% of the student body is comprised of in-state students and at the end of each day, everyone goes home(just like high school, remember?). To those unfortunate enough to end up here (like this undergrad), do what I did and maintain a high GPA then transfer to a better university. Those looking for the true college experience, look elsewhere. Those who don't really care about a quality education and just want to go somewhere cheap and close to home, this is the school for you.
questionHow is the computer science department? Are you able to learn the material or can the professors care less?
