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!
Review Long Island University - C.W. Post
LIU Post is in a great location. The campus is absolutely beautiful! The parking is decent. Overall, nearly everything is in good condition. I've been to only a few campus events so far (but it's only week 3 of the Fall semester!). The ones I've gone to were very welcoming and bustling. Would I choose LIUP again? Hell, yes! ;)
I chose the perfect school! It is very easy here to be involved in activities because there are so many options. I have discovered great success coaches and attend great classes with great professors who are more than willing to help with your success! My experiences so far have all been positive and I expect the, to remain that way for the rest of my college career here.
