Long Island University - Brooklyn Reviews

The library is the place where students come to socialize, eat, drink, talk on their phones without any regard to anyone else trying to study. The "Quiet Study" area is a joke since students treat it like the library. Even LIU employees hold their phone conversations there as well.

The Nursing Program is disorganized. The professors didn't have access to their Blackboard accounts for weeks. Students were clueless about what textbooks to get.

Professors have full control over the quizzes they give out, but the exams are a "collaborative" effort where all the professors within their department create the exam. One professor will teach, while other professors will teach something else. This hurts the student since the exam is made up of more than one professor.

I've heard horror stories about LIU - Brooklyn, but their poor attempt at "revamping" their program is a glorious mess at best.

The faculty is very friendly and cares about your success after college. I went to the Open House and I was very excited about continuing my college career at LIU! The campus is very safe; it's gated and has security officers always on-duty. The campus has affiliations with top companies that are recognized worldwide. This university definitely helps the student think and work on a global scale rather than just helping them get a job.
At LIU BK I like the location! The school is located in downtown and everything is close by! This school is mostly known for the medical and business field. Every other major is basically pointless. The school is expensive but it matters on how you use you opportunities and resources wisely. Overall the dorms are pretty big than SUNY colleges and their are no parties on campus unless your on the sports team or in some way affiliated with them.
