Overall Rating

The College of Staten Island is a great school. It is a local college for the people of Staten Island, NY as well as any other students living in the remaining boroughs or out of state. The thing I enjoyed the most about CSI was the enthusiasm the professors had while I attended. Almost every professor showed their willingness to help and to teach their students which gave a very comforting feeling to us students. I was also very impressed with the amount of extracurricular activities that CSI offered. The eclectic choice of different clubs/organizations truly appealed to the diverse community at CSI.
