Best thing about Baruch is that it is located in NYC. One thing I would change... ON-CAMPUS HOUSING, PLEASE. This would make Baruch seem more like a college, have some sort of campus life. Many people complain that it just still feels like high school because of this. You don't hang out with people you are with all the time in school, simply because everyone lives so far away. When I tell people I go to Baruch this is how it goes: Me: I go to Baruch. B: Where? Never heard of that. Me: Oh, its a college in New York. B: Oh.. Where do I spend my most time on campus..hmm. I dont. Its boring, and there isnt much of a campus anyway. Its a building with 14 floors. There is absolutely NO SCHOOL PRIDE. Most frequent student complaints: WE NEED DORMS!!!
My professors do know my name, well most of them do. Favorite class, I don't really have one. Least favorite, MATH. I feel the math professors are not very good. I had a guy I could barely understand because of his heavy accent. Now, I have a small Asian woman who doesn't seem very confident with her own solutions, and makes MANY mistakes. I do not spend time with professors outside of class. Baruch's education is more geared toward getting a job, I think.
Very diverse. Mostly Chinese and Indians. 99.999999% of students have lived in New York throughout high school. Even the foreign students. No out of state kids. I've met like two, including myself. Students wear normal clothes to school, but you can tell the difference between how an NYU student would dress/act compared to Baruch students. To be honest, we look very street-like. Whereas places like NYU, look more clean-cut. Students are definitely not politically aware. I was trying to find someone to take with me to the Barack Obama rally, and everyone I asked was, "Obama, who?!" Shame.
The Best Things
It is in the city.
The Worst Things
Absolutely no social life. Needs smarter people.
