If these college activities conjure images of ivy-covered, out-of-town campuses far from the A, the E, the 2 and the 3, think again. CUNY campuses are vibrant communities – rich with opportunities for academic engagement, public service, culture, personal growth and just plain fun. Consider deejaying at the campus radio station, bonding with fellow accounting majors and getting elected to student government. Join Baruch’s Handball Maniacs, Hostos’ Robotics Club, play soccer at CSI, break out your inner Hemingway at one of Brooklyn College’s dynamic student-run publications or tap into hundreds of volunteer service opportunities. Our students make new friends to keep for a lifetime. And, equipped with high-tech auditoriums, modern athletic facilities, welcoming gathering places and an increasing number of traditional dormitory rooms, our campuses offer students the full college experience from the esoteric to the traditional – all part of the CUNY Value.
Ho (Queensborough Community College ’15) already had a B.A. when she entered Queensborough to switch to nursing, which she finds “very rewarding.” She also brought along her volleyball skills, rising to co-captain the Lady Tigers women’s volleyball team in 2014 and, as the team’s libero, help lead the team to a very successful season – all while maintaining a 3.9 GPA.
