SUNY College at Old Westbury Reviews
Old West has amazing professors who challenge and prepare you for your career! I transferred to Old Westbury from a local community school and was surprised how diverse the school was. The campus is small which is great because in the winter you don't want to travel far for classes or food. Certain majors such as Public Health are small, which creates intimate learning settings with professors and classmates. All my professors were always available and willing to help outside their office hours and email back within 24hrs. There are multiple computer labs that are open until 12AM and private rooms in the library that are great for studying. Overall, my experience at Old Westbury was life changing! I became an A student thanks to all my professors dedication and love for teaching. Old Westbury is a small campus that focuses on its students academics and creates new exciting college experiences.
My experience in at Old West has been great! People aren't too cliquey here in comparison to where I went before (Five Towns College). My advisor really took the time to help me in understanding my schedule for the following semesters, as well as giving me info on professors for each class I was going to be taking. While there are many quiet people, everyone is very mellow and friendly for the most part. If there was one thing I could change, it would have to be prices of the food in the cafe. Aside from that, I have nothing to complain about.
Went to SUNY College at Old Westbury open house this weekend and this college is very welcoming. Everyone greeted me with open arms, and was very polite. The open house was set up in a creative manner, with different presentations going on in classrooms based on different majors. These presentations were very helpful, for instance the business school presentation open my mind up to how it would be for me going into an accounting major. The presentation also stemmed out of just the business school, and Old Westbury in general. Amazing experience!
