    Distance and the range of possible programs, minors and extra activities that I would be able to participate in if I chose to. Overall it was convenient for me, at only a 30 min walk or 7-minute car ride.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Overall, it was good and very well rounded. I liked all of the different courses from accounting to marketing to business development and spreadsheet work. It also taught crucial communication skills that I use today.

    I LOVE QUEENS IT'S A GREAT PLACE

    I received a Full scholarship and it's close to home. Also, they gave me a laptop, money to travel abroad, and money for textbooks. Also, they offered a large range of majors and the college has a good reputation.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I'm a fan of it mostly but it's a bit too heavy on the sciences. In terms of my major curriculum, I do wish it was a bit more Rigorous with more options to study nonwestern history but as a whole, I'm a fan!
