I have enjoyed my classes so far and that's because of my lovely professors. I never expected to like school so much, but with the great support systems in place and the endless work/internships opportunities, I love it. It is also very close to different restaurants, which is great because the food on campus isn't known to be sensational. For coffee lovers, the Starbucks on campus is a lifesaver. I also love that we have common hour, so it is a great breakup to long days and you always have an opportunity to see your friends. There are always campus events that helps bring the school a sense of community. Overall, great school!

The campus is beautiful. Awesome professors full of knowledge and training in their professions. Professors always available for help if needed. The Criminal Justice graduate program is excellent! A bit expensive though.
I'm excited that Long Island University Post has work study opportunities within my major. My major is Communications and Media. With the work study programs, it gives me hands on experience which I can add on my resume.

I did apply to this school because the school had a football program because I desired to continue play college football and was offered a grant for athletics. After my freshman year I decided to drop out of football and focus on my major in Communications/ Media. Unfortunately, I lost my athletic scholarship and was left with a small grant for academics but I'm satisfied with my decision and have no regrets.
