The campus isn't what you would expect from a college. The college life here is minimal to none. It's really hard to get involved in an environment like this. The buildings look like a prison, specifically the Metcalfe and Humanities buildings. There's some good professors but there are many difficult ones. The good professors almost immediately get taken, while the difficult ones remain. The school specializes in Pharmacy and Nursing so any other major should look elsewhere. Also, consider other Pharmacy or Nursing schools in the NYC area, they probably would be better and prepare you even more for the real world. Watch out because they do everything to take your money.

The Long Island University Brooklyn Campus is known for being in the middle of the city. It’s near transport to the city and has access to great places to eat, relax, and shop. About the school itself, I’m a aspiring pharmacy student and so far it’s been great. The school campus is small, but in a quaint way, it’s easily navigable. The classes have been fair so far, but will get more challenging. The school has a variety of clubs and sports teams to join for those interested in socializing and expanding their circle. They’re also great as extra curriculares. There’s a Pre Pharmacy Club for students who are going into the pharmacy program in the third year. It has been really helpful so far. They bring in professionals and upper class men to talk about the different things you can do in the pharmaceutical world. Some downsides to this school is that it is a bit on the smaller size, and it’s quite old.
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.
