Long Island University - C.W. Post Reviews
LIU Post is what you make of it. You have to put yourself out there and be social. Go to the football games, basketball games etc. If you hear there's a party where a lot of students will be present, go to them so that you can meet people. Be social in your classes, talk to the student who live on your floor of the dorm. Go to Hillwood Commons (Student Center) and just chill. You are bound to meet someone or see someone that you can befriend. Campus is quiet on the weekends so if you don't have a car, befriend someone with one so that you can go off campus and have fun. LIU is really great when it comes to internships and trying to make sure you will be employed after graduation. LIU is also becoming more diverse. Everyone's college experience is different so its up to you to make the most of it. Have fun, be social, talk to a lot of people, make connections and do well in class. You can never get these 4 years back!
As a 68 year old grad student, the is not as attractive I thought it would be. Being the old guy, the students have the greatest part of the experience friendly, courtesy, and respectful. The school talks the talk, but doesn't walk or crawl. While campus is beautiful, it is NOT ADA friendly. Even the disabilities department is unavailable to help, Public Safety has been great. the custodial and housing staff are fabulous. The administrative staff is unresponsive, but my professors are also great, so if you are able bodied people, you could have a good time
I loved the campus and Hillwood (which had alternative food options plus a starbucks that I lived on as a BFA Theater Major.) Hillwood is the only reason I didn't give food a one star rating. The dorms were great. I first lived in the biggest hall, then transferred to the Suites. The RHD and RAs were so fun and helpful and by the end of the year you feel like one giant family. The professors in the Theatre Department are basically the only ones I know, aside from the English Department (shout out to the administration for being SO helpful) and my English Professor was such a great educator and resource. The Theatre Department is like a little cult of misfits and the teachers are extremely knowledgeable (and supportive IF they think you'll last...)
