Renovations going on in the campus. Q27 bus stop located inside the campus grounds makes it convenient for both students and locals alike to get around without having to walk down to Cardozo High School to catch at bus in the morning rush towards Jamaica or Main Street, Flushing. Same heading back home in the evening.

The best bang for the buck for community colleges in queens. Some programs are more geared towards employment , please choose wisely. Classes are available from morning to night, and even on the weekends. A great library to study and a safe school. Some professors really care and will extend themselves to help you. Great place for adults looking for a career change as well as acomidating students with disabilities. Cafeteria is above average, but people usually patronize the food trucks parked outside school. Parking can be a nightmare, so expect to come here an hour early looking for parking. If not , be prepared to park 3-4 blocks away. The Q27 bus comes to the campus during weekdays only. The Q30 stops in-front of the campus weekdays.This school has gone through a lot of improvements and I hope it will continue...

Excellent community college. Great professors and faculty that actually care. I am a student here so this is fact not opinion.

I'm a student here and I have had mixed experiences. The facilities range from good to horrible - they're working on the roof of one building that my classes are in, and we haven't had any heat in there all month. The instructors I've had care about their students and enjoy teaching. So many students get financial aid, but I can't because my program doesn't have enough classes for me to take now to qualify (12 credits or more). Parking is atrocious. Class schedules are pretty convenient. The student body is diverse and everyone gets along well. The cafeteria tries to have a wide variety, but the quality isn't great, and it's pretty pricey. There are vending machines everywhere, though. The bookstore is very sparsely stocked. If

QCC is not a bad Community College (in my personal opinion) and even though I did experience some issue with one professor, It was water under the bridge for me afterwords. The QCC Campus give out a positive vibe when I walk through it. The staff the I experience have always been very helpful to me. If their was an issue they would always find some sort solution. QCC has option about buying food. QCC also has a tutoring and a writing center to help students. The School Safety Dept is really committed to keep student safe.My First and Summer Semester 2017I recently finished my first semester back in May (Spring 2017). It was a great semester. My professor were the best. I also did a crash math course for 5 weeks during July and passed it. The math professor I had was awesome and extremely helpful. I will update when I finish my Fall semester of 2017.Update 2017 No .1: So I recently applied for the ASAP program where I accept at first but I was then denied later on because I was target as financial risk to their program for certain reasons. They said that they hopeful give me leverage if I was to take a remedial course if I passed (which I did with a “B” letter grade) but in the day nobody from asap kept their word hence I was still revoked acceptance from the ASAP program. I did fight but nor Student affair or the Dean of QCC want to give my fair justice. They pretty much brushed me aside. Which shows that some of the campus officials have no form of integrity nor honor and is a huge contraction to it own policies.Fall 2017 Semester:I just finished my Fall semester of 2017 and beside having to drop a couple of class because whatever issue I had with my two professors; but in the end my semester of Fall 2017 was okay. I still haven't been given the fair justice by any of QCC officials and I’m still brushed aside with my issue I had with the ASAP Program. Which again shows that they have no form of integrity nor honor and is a huge contraction to it own policies.
