Long Island University - Brooklyn Reviews

I attended as a transfer student from age 27-29. Majored in Sport Science, Minor Sport Management. Completed 6 business/sport management classes. Completed two internships Brooklyn Nets/NY Islanders Sales intern and Brooklyn Health and Performance the latter I gained through an alumni of the school. Most important class I took at LIU BK was Intro to Entrepreneurship. The director of Entrepreneurship is a black women with an MBA from Stern and B.S. from Wharton. One of the most brilliant people I have ever come across in life. The Dean of the business school holds a PH.D. MBA. and BBA from Columbia. Take advantage of the professors and deans they're willing to help mature, driven individuals. The faculty will not plug you with their connects if you cannot demonstrate you're value (i.e hard skills and soft skills) you possess. You pay this tuition for the network and internships.

Long Island University Brooklyn has a perfect size campus I was looking forward too as I entered college. Since the campus is not so big it is easy to get to one building to another, especially the fact on the third floor of every building it somehow connects to another building which is a huge advantage when the cold weather kicks in. Beside the campus there is a friendly staff, free tutoring is available for any subject you are weak at. You easily go to the tutoring center make an appointment, check your email, and then come in the day of your appointment. If I had to pick at one issue it would have to be some of the science professors are not the best to take if you are majoring in Pharmacy like me. Overall, Long Island University Brooklyn is great.
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.
