City may be a small public college, but it kicks butt. Think of City as the poor man's Harvard or Columbia; two Rhodes Scholars, a Truman Scholar, Colin Powell, and numerous high-profile men and women call City their alma matter. If that's not good enough, the school has some of the best architecture, engineering, pre-med, and international studies programs New York City has to offer. These four majors, as well as the other 50+ degrees offered by City, enable current students and graduates to obtain internships and jobs within the Big Apple. The teachers within the majors are usually laid back, but every professor is different. The workload will vary from professor to professor. An easy semester in the fall doesn't mean an easy semester in the spring.
Many of the students that attend City are commuters, so academics are their first priority and partying is the last on their list. The College has much to offer when it comes to academics. The Writing Center helps when it comes to writing essays for professors. There are many writing tutors available (by appointment and for free), the atmosphere is very chill, and there are tons of Macs for use as well. The Writing Center is only one of many resources available at City. Class assignments can be easy, hard, or just plain boring and a waste of time, but using the many resources City provides makes getting A's and B's that much simpler.
