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!

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...)
As an incoming freshman, I am SUPER disappointed for my first experience at this school. I really want my money back because all of the school asks for is MONEY MONEY AND MORE MONEY. My biggest issue is the food here. You would think a university charging a ridicilous amount of money for tuition would have food that's cheaper or good for that matter, BUT YOU THOUGHT WRONG. If anyone has been to the Winnick Student Center you would know that the cafe there charges a hell of a lot of money for even one item. I recentely just bought Ben and Jerry's from there which cost almost $7.00 when I could get that at a local corner store for $3.00. They give you an LIU Card at the start of campus with $300.00 for dorming students and $50.00 for commuters. Also if you didn't know, if you don't pay with your LIU Card they charge tax on your debit card and whatever cash you have. Overall campus is scenic but it really isn't worth spending your money here.
