Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

I was satisfied with their education. It always worked for me well. They had a systematic approach to teach en. However, there was super unkind black woman who was the security in e building. When I visited to register there for the first time, she was at enterance in e building, didn't react anything even though I asked sth. Just using her fingers. idk why she did with disgusting face. A unfilled star is just for you. Have a good one.

Im currently in my last year at LaGuardia (majoring in business) and i have to say the Business department is full of AMAZING professors. Classes are really easy (most of them except accounting unless you're good at it) and the students are cool. I, personally, never talked to anyone or made any friends because I'm not an outgoing person.The school is constantly going under renovations and they just finished the new library and it looks AMAZING, as if it was a library from an ivy league. Food isn't that great but what do you expect, its school food [not free of course].For people who are curious about the diversity of this school, these are my personal percentages of what i see; 20% - Asian 20% - African American 30% - Hispanic 30% - White/EuropeanOverall, its a good school to just do your 2 years in and get out.

My opinion about the school very hard to find parking unless you want to pay for it I find the academic staff lazy and the counselors extremely rude if you ask to speak to a supervisor they call the security guards on you instead bunch of overzealous staff for all the wrong reasons when you go to finance and you try to sign in for help some of the people that check you in are extremely not helpful the male on the right side he need to be replaced... Most of the people in that office have no customers service skills they need to be retrained as far as the the majority of professor's they try to push their political agendas on you I'm not here to talk politics I'm here to learn they should keep their political views to themselves and focus on the curriculum most of those teachers have only book smarts no real-world experience except for a few overall my opinion is that you should go to the school only out of location convenience if that's not going for you look elsewhere the only staff I found extremely helpful caring and not lazy were the people in Bursar office I think they should put those people in charge and give them a raise they deserve it cuz they actually try to help you where all the other staff could care less I rate them an excellent

As a graduating business student I want to say I've had the most awesome professors. Absolutely no complaints what so ever, LaGuardia does a great job hiring the right professors. As far as building staff goes, unless it was for financial aid help or academic advisement, I've barely needed to contact them. However, I wouldn't recommend you waist your time calling over the phone. It's best to just go online to find office hours and go in to the building to get the answers you need. For the most part you don't need an appointment for anything just go in and wait your turn. Good luck !
