Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 1969

Overall Rating

Went so long ago, not sure observations are still valid. There was a great deal of political activism in the late sixties and the anti war factions were prominent. The SDA once took over the Registrar Building. This factored into choice of studies as many students chose professions that would defer them from military service.


Former Student - Last Attended 1966

Overall Rating

It's been quite a while since I was in school. I'm not sure how relevant my review is going to be today, but Brooklyn College served its purpose for me. I lived in Brighton Beach and needed a school where I could stay close to home. It made getting my degree a lot easier and properly prepared me for becoming a teacher.
