My experience at City Tech is pretty good so far. In my opinion, I like schools that have lawns and many trees because I think that it would look so nice and make me feel comfortable. So the first time I came here and stood in front of the Namm Main building, I thought : This school really fits the word “ technology“. But at the same time, I think that City Tech is reasonable to look like this because this school is more about technology professional studies and it is located at the MetroTech Center area, which is the business and educational center in Downtown Brooklyn, New York City according to Wikipedia.
Before I talk about my experience at City Tech, let me talk a little bit about my feeling of going to college. Many people think that college is so different from high school. I definitely agree with this. The way of going to school is already different. It is not like a regular pattern in high school any more. Many of us will need to work part time. And other things in our daily lives. Therefore, it is so important for me to learn how to plan for my time and set my schedule. I need to manage my own things well. It’s like feeling a sense of coming to an adulthood. I admit that I am still adjusting to the new experience and the environment of the transition of going into college. But I would like to try my best to adjust to this change.
I think that City Tech is actually a pretty good school. In calculation, I have been City Tech 2 months and a few days. Although this is not a long time, but I think that my experience in City Tech is pretty good so far. There are many different resources available to the students of city tech. Library is a good example. We can access to the computers, print our papers, make copies, use the scanners, and borrow the textbooks to read in the library, etc. Learning center is another good resource. This is a place that we can get tutoring assistance for problems regarding the assignments on different class subjects. There are also many computers, so we can access to the internet and print papers in the Learning center as well. There are also different clubs for students to join. Other than that, City Tech also has a Student Wellness Center, which is a place that offers many programs and services that are designed to help the students’ physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Another thing that I notice is that whenever there is a new event, there are many flyers that are posted at many places around the school. That way we can know about the latest information and events that are happening in the school. There are many other resources in City Tech, and the professors are always there to help their students too.
I appreciate all of those resources that are offered by City Tech. However, there are still things that need improvement. One of the main things is the elevator system. All of the elevators are always slow and crowded. Many people would have at least one experience of waiting for four elevators passed, but still could not get in. There are some big classrooms, but the light in some of those classrooms is dim. Another thing is that the library should have more computers for the students to use because there are many students, but sometimes the computers are not enough for the students. I know that sometimes we “dream big” , but we are all happy to see improvements. 🙂
