Academics Rating

Hunter's professors are down to earth and is always there when you need them. Although many classes are large, you will always be able to meet your professors after class or during their office hours.If you are taking a class you are having difficulties with, there are always places in the school where you can get a tutor or even a professor to help you. I don't think there is a lot of work, as long as you attend classes and be an active participant in class you will most likely ace the class.
