Long Island University has variety of sports and clubs for students to participate in. The professors at LIU are very helpful and engaging with the students. I really admire LIU's 6 year Pre pharmacy program that allows student to save time and focus on the courses they really need to become Professional Pharmacists. I would appreciate if LIU offered student more scholarship and financial aid opportunities. Overall, LIU is a great school!

When I first moved in, I had an extremely difficult time with finances and you billing situation. Within 24 hours I was able to work with my school and figure out the best payment plan for me and my family. I enjoy the city of Brooklyn, my campus’s welcoming environment and my classmates. During uncertain times, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, Long Island University was able to ensure safety and health regulations with the utmost care and responsibility.
This school was very unorganized, overpriced, and lacked competent professors. It was more expensive than some ivy leagues, while providing an education resembling my high school courses. Overall, I would not recommend this school to anyone. They are preoccupied with their athletes, leaving all others to be forgotten and not given the proper education they are paying for.
