“If you think of education as a daring adventure, CUNY Brooklyn College might be right up your alley,” reads bestvalueschool.com’s opening sentence describing Brooklyn College, after ranking the school #52 in its list of Top 100 Affordable Universities.
While being praised on the ability to work with “special learning groups,” Brooklyn College was also ranked because of its location, utilizing “civic, urban, and artistic energy” of New York City.
The list only included four-year schools with a student body of over 4,000 students.
Other City University of New York (CUNY) colleges on the list included College of Staten Island at #90, Queens College at #89, Medgar Evers College at #64, Baruch College at #55, City College of New York at #21, York College at #16, Lehman College at #15, NYC College of Technology at #10, and John Jay College at #9.
This list ranks Brooklyn College sixth among schools in the CUNY system, and behind State University of New York (SUNY) schools Farmingdale State University at #29, and College of Old Westbury at #1.
While continuing to embrace diversity and equality in education, Brooklyn College is climbing through the ranks of public institutions, as new students from all over the world can come to Brooklyn College, knowing that they are coming to an institution who will judge them based on their work ethic, academic performance, and extracurricular participation.
With plenty of room for improvement, the strides that the campus is making as students hurry in and out of class can sometimes get lost in the everyday hustle of a being a Brooklyn College student.
