If you're bored in New York, you're doing something wrong

Several subway stops within three blocks or so.

Though the school has several scholarship programs-- Macaulay honors, Baruch honors, and Dean's scholars-- the financial aid office is a mess. The only way to get in contact with them is in person, often waiting on line for more than an hour during the spring and summer. If you call, email, or fax, they will not answer. Ever. Odds are that even if you're supposed to be getting a full ride, you'll end up paying for your first semester because Financial Aid messed up. It's nearly december and I'm still waiting on my Pell, and a friend of mine still hasn't had her FAFSA verified because the office forgot to process it over six months ago. It's a nightmare.

Health & Safety:
There's nothing much to worry about. The cafeteria in VC is pretty gross though, it's gotten a couple of bad health inspection grades.

There are plenty of clubs/organizations for students to join on campus ranging from athletics, to Greek life, to academic clubs. Many students hang out in our 'quad' between the main campus and the library. The library also offers plenty of space for students that are working on homework or just need a quiet place to study.

My school does have Greek life but it is not very prominent. Students know us Greeks are on campus, but it's not made to be a big deal by the school and a majority of the school is not involved in Greek life. However, if you are Greek you don't look down on those who aren't.

Campus transportation relies solely on the NYC MTA, unless you live within walking distance of the school.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:52:26Z
Because we are in the middle of NYC, the school is very diverse and intolerance of other ethnicities/religions, in my experience at the school, has never been an issue.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:51:08Z
The strictness on campus is between very strict and average. I can't speak for what goes on in campus housing but I can say that when it comes to the school's academic honor code, they are very strict.

Being in the middle of New York City is awesome. There are so many things to do off campus and it is so easy to experience new things because there are so many different events, shopping locations, and activities in Manhattan.

Health & Safety:
There are security guards that are seated at every entrance to the buildings on campus and they are very helpful to students/faculty should they need it.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:40:45Z
You're in the city so most of the drug/alcohol scenes happen off campus.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:39:47Z
It's average, and the only cafeteria on campus is open from about 9AM to maybe 5PM. So it's not always open for students who have classes after 5.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:37:21Z
I've only been to a few parties/bars on the weekend around campus, but there are plenty of events that go on after class hours and around the campus. There are plenty of bars in the vicinity that students hang out in on any evening from Thursday to Saturday.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:35:55Z
I have not enrolled in a specific program as of yet, but from what I hear the program I am looking to go into is great. The faculty works with students well and the curriculum and workload is very balanced.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:35:54Z
I haven't had an internship as of yet, but I look to have one because it is a requirement at Baruch that you do an internship your senior year. I would prefer to already have an internship under my belt before then so that I can have experience. I don't have experience in professional training positions, but I have worked as an on-call sales associate and volunteered as a catechetical assistant at my Church's religious education program that takes place on Sundays.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:32:00Z
Because Baruch is in the middle of NYC, there is a wide variety of places where students can eat off-campus. Student discounts are only really counted at places within a 2 block radius of the school itself, but even without the discounts the prices of places surrounding Baruch are average and affordable.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:30:26Z
Compared to the school I previously attended the network reliability and speed, as well as wireless access is much better at Baruch. While it isn't necessary to bring your own laptop to school because the school has plenty of tech labs, it is still good to bring your own in case these labs are full.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:25:28Z
I do not live on campus because I am a commuter, but I have friends who have on-campus housing who enjoy it.
College Sophomore 2013-11-10T22:24:03Z
Part of what I love about my school is how culturally diverse it is. There's so many different kinds of people on campus and to learn about so many cultures different to my own is fascinating. Another part of what I love about my school is that there was a variety of clubs/organizations to join and that the leaders of these clubs/organizations were very outgoing, friendly, and informative. I felt welcomed into the school by the professors and my peers and I would choose to go to my school again if I had the chance.
