I love the availability of the staff. They are all so helpful and supportive. Keep it up the good work and we can all go far. The instructors are 100% available, 100% helpful, and 100% supportive. Not to mention how understanding and willing to listen. I also love my advisor, Julia Hoke. She is truly delightful every time I speak to her, and she gets done what needs to be done, on my behalf. Mad props!

I liked how it's a small campus. A lot of one on one help available. With small campus's you can get more hands on help from your peers and professors. Everyone greeted me when I was there for my interview and that made me feel very welcomed. I enjoyed the tour of the campus. I loved how everything was right next to each other , that makes it easier to get to everything. The library is always opened to students 7 days a week and that's a plus! I want to play soccer in college so to know that they work around your practice times is great! Post is only 30 minutes from home which will be easy to get to. I hope I will be able to play soccer and attend Post University!
I did not finish school and was seeking to go back to further my education. The process of getting started came at ease from the Admission Counselor Walter Hope. I was extremely eager to get started with completing my degree. Jeanne Penta, my financial advisor has extremely helpful with providing information for scholarships and grants. I appreciate the sincere help provided by this school and I am looking forward to completing my degree in Management.
