Five Towns College is a great small school. You receive unbelievable one on one attention. The cafeteria food is great even though students complain. They have no idea how bad other schools food is. If you need help with a paper, tutoring, getting a job, or preparing your resume there will be someone to assist you every time. The negative for the school is that there isn't much to do on campus. They are getting more activities but they really need to open up to more of a variety. There are no sports teams and it is a dry campus. On Long Island you can find many things to do if you look. There are festivals and parties and you are a 50 minute train ride from NYC. There are also brand new apartments about 10 minute drive and a 20 minute bus ride away from the school in Wyandanch Village. I would go back here because the school allowed me the flexibility to work teachers are very understanding about absences even beyond the 20% absence policy which is up to 3 weeks of classes missed.
Review Five Towns College
Audio/Business Major. I have taken a lot away from the business major/audio concentration; recorded personal music during studio project time, learned how to adequately use ProTools, how to use a console and basic signal flow, and business classes have taught me how to market/manage a business.
It is getting better since there was a change in the overall command structure. But, there isn't much for notable alumni yet. I'll give it some more time as the school continues to grow and prosper. This is, however, a great place to network with others, because we are the next generation of filmmakers. We all work together at some point, and it is good to find those with similar interests, and talents.
