My favorite quality about Hunter is its diversity. Not only does the CUNY college have diverse cultures, it is also indicative of the true nature of New York City with its economically and politically diverse students. One thing I would change would be peopleÕs perceptions of non-Ivy League colleges and making people realize what an amazing school Hunter is. When I tell people I attend Hunter, they usually tell me that they heard great things about the school and congratulate me on choosing the college. I spend most of my time in the Undergraduate student government (USG) ofiice, since I am one of the executive board members of the USG. Hunter is in New York City: the entire city is our own town. Hunter's administration tries very hard to work with its students and there are many exceptional people who truly care about the welfare of the students. I believe there is a lot of school pride, because I often meet students whose mothers and grandmothers attended Hunter. The fact that Hunter was chosen as the site for the 30th anniversary conference for the one and only national feminist conference on November 10 and 11, 2007, was unforgettable. One of the chief organizers, Liz Abzug, could have easily chosen Columbia, where she teachers, but chose Hunter for various reasons, including the fact that her mother, the late Congresswoman Bella Abzug is a Hunter alumna.
Many professors do know my name. My favorite class is the graduate class Media & Violence by Prof. Gorelick and other Women's Studies classes, such as the psychology of women and Immigration and Gender. Students are very active in class and we often stay long after class, engaging the professor with our questions and lively discussions. I am a marketing and public relations double major and psychology minor.

I am Muslim, but often spend time in Hillel and even had joint events with the club using The Women's Rights Coalition. I can't imagine anyone feeling out of place at Hunter, unless they were a member of a hate group such as KKK. There is a very diverse range of opinions at Hunter, but being a NYC college, we tend to be more liberal than our southern counterparts.
