Overall Rating

Overall, I think CUNY La Guardia Community College is a great culturally diverse atmosphere, with a variety of courses, and different certificate programs offered there. What I enjoy most about LaGuardia is the Hallways and walls are covered in beautiful abstract art, so if your having one of those days, its easily washed away by the wonderful display of Alumni Talent that Wash the Wall's of every floor.


Overall Rating

The reason I am interested in this vocational school, is for I have heard through the years it has a no 1 rating in technical training. The major I hope to be taking will be Radiolgy Tech to be certified. I believe that LGA CC is accredited to LIJ and No Shore Hospitals and other Hospitals that I was looking to work at. At the age of 52, to start all over again I would prefer to go to a school with high standings in the 5 boroughs and throught the Greater New York area, than to go to a sleazy no accredited school that does not help you with the career and support you are looking for to learn a trade.
