Queens College is pretty cool in the sense that you get what you want from it. If you want to just blend in, then there is more than enough people to allow you to do that. And if you want to be seen and do something special, there is also enough space that you will stand out and shine. As an athlete I spend most of my day in the Fitzgerald Gymnasium. Although the building is very outdated and the locker rooms leave little to be desired, it's still my home away from home. The college is working hard to have the whole building redone, and hopefully within the next few years there will be a lot of changes done to it. =)
My favorite class at Queens College was my seminar for political science. Professor Rollins was just such a down to earth kind of guy. He was funny, serious, informative and friendly all at the same time. There are students who compete for the teachers attention, who always go that extra step in the classroom and there are also the students who fall asleep in the back of the room, or go on their laptop writing "notes" (a.k.a checking facebook), but there is a level for everyone. My least favorite class was economics. The teacher could not speak English that well, and you can't really learn if you don't understand the subject or the person who is teaching it!
QC has a very diverse student body. You have every type of ethnicity represented on campus. Every religious group that wishes to be represented has a meeting place in the Student Union and if someone is looking for someone to connect with, they will find a group for that. The political side of the school is starting to warm up and elections are finally coming close, but the student government we have now, United People, has been extremely helpful and useful to the day to day workings of the college, as well as the student body population made up of athletes.
