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've enjoyed my time at Post, it's been a very enlightening experience in many ways. The courses I've taken haven't been exceedingly hard, they just require good focus, planning, and collaboration. I've only experienced it through the online portion, but I still have a positive opinion about it. I've gotten to better know my own strengths and weaknesses from my experience at Post, and nearly every course I've taken I have been able to glean some useful, practical information. The staff is very friendly, which was a major factor of why I applied to begin with. I've been taking courses since 2015, and so far it's been paying off well.
