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.

I recently visited Long Island University and the campus is wonderful. The campus gives off a traditional, quaint New England college vibe in a positive way. Not only are the facilities in great condition, but the classes provided are stellar. They offer wonderful job placement opportunities and partner with many local businesses that offer internships for students seeking experience. Overall, Long Island University seems to be a great school.
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!
