If you are not coming here for pharmacy DO NOT COME HERE! you are just paying for the locations. Most of the professors are old and are not up to date. I'm a journalism major and my professor is horrible and I can't really complain to anyone because he is the dean. The buildings are a mess and don't forget the lockout! which is not over by the way. the school literally put anybody in the classrooms so we couldn't sue. The problem was you would have someone who works in the admission office teaching your class. Though now professors are working on a temporary contract the lockout will continue after the 2017 spring semester.
The school is very diverse but the students are not really any fun and do not have any school.
President Cline does not care about this campus and is letting it go to crap!
I wish someone told me the truth about liu but since no one did it for me I'm doing it for you. Just go to a cheaper and better school.
Review Long Island University - Brooklyn
Long Island University is a very diverse school and it has different types of people coming from many different backgrounds. I would like to see more dedicated faculty and success coach who were more willing to help and also a cleaner school environment would be beneficial. The tuition is too high and costly and the money is not showing in The school. The faculty and staff members are being underpaid and because of that they are not able to work to their full potential. At the beginning of the 2016 school year, teachers were going on strike because they were losing their jobs and are not being paid fairly. As an undergraduate student at Long Island University, these are some of the changes I would like to see the school work hard to fix in the near future for the betterment of everyone.
What I like about log Island university is that it's a very diverse school, and it's not too big and not too small. The professors are good and the people seem nice. I love the area of the school! Surrounded by activities
