SUNY College at Old Westbury is somewhat a decent school. I wish there was more things to do during the academic year. Our school has very little things to do. All we have is a gym with an Olympic size pool, basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball and softball fields and a soccer field. Part of the college experience is having a football team. We have ample space for a football field and I can guarantee that we would have a great team! The cafeteria should have better quality food. The food reminds me of public school food in New York City. We should also have more dining options other than a fake chipotle, Nathan's and Dunkin Donuts.

The staff, faculty and other employees of the school are amazing! Many of them are very helpful and easy to connect with! Our school is a safe campus due to having State Troopers on campus. Our campus is massive, which is both a plus and negative. We have ample room to excercise, but we need a motor viehicle to go off campus. We are near 2 major highways and 15 minutes away from the LIRR.

The school transportation system could be more reliable as I have waited over 20 minutes for a shuttle van to take from gate A to the main building on campus. We only have one person who drives the van and does other administative duties. That contributes to the shuttle bus being delayed.

I wish the school spent more money as there are several things that could be changed. I hope this has given you insight on choosing schools! Happy college hunting!

I have felt welcome at SUNY College at Old Westbury since summer orientation. Within the first hour of being here for orientation in August, I made 3 friends, whom I am still friends with today. The dorm life even though it was hard to adjust to it, all of the staff and RAs here were welcoming and helpful in the transition from living at home with parents to living with a roommate who you never met before. With the professors each and everyone of them were helpful in my transition from high school to college. they were very helpful whenever I needed help with an assignment and office hours were worth going to.
Well when I visited Old Westbury, it was okay. The new architecture was cool. The fact that all the classes were held in one building was nice. The dorm rooms were bigger than I expected. But the one thing I didn't like about Old Westbury is how slow and not connected the administration departments were with getting my financial aid stuff together or responding to emails when I needed their help the most. Also the tuition prices are misguided because they are totally different from what I actually have to pay and nowhere near it.
