    At Hunter, the diversity of the student population is amazing. It opens your eyes to the variety of cultures. There are many international students attending Hunter and everyone is welcoming and very helpful. Clubs are always playing music outside the cafe area and there is always an area to lounge around in school during your breaks.

    The school is very diverse and I've gotten to know quite a bunch of people in the past four weeks. There will be times in which you'll have to be the first to speak to people before they say anything to you, so don't be timid about going up to someone you don't know. They might turn out to be a great friend later on.

    Hunter is a commuting school so its really hard to get involved in the school activities, but if you show the initiative to get involved it turns out that the school offers an extremely fun environment. The Undergraduate Student Government hosts several parties throughout the school year, but there is so much to do in New York City that many of the students don't attend. So even though there may not be much happening in school you will always find something to do in the vast city of New York.

    The students are so warm and friendly here. I have met so many new people and I have so many new friends. Sometimes I get so excited going to class because of so many funny people I meet who make me laugh everytime I see them. You really can be yourself at Hunter and really find yourself and who you are as an individual. Hunter truly supports individualism but also altruism. Do something, because you want to do it, not to follow anyone else. I really believe in being a leader.
