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!
Love my Professors who were extremely knowledgeable, highly intellectual and diversely unique who taught us with their hearts 💕. I carry them with me even after over 30 years & hold them in high regard whatever I do in my life. Forever grateful & will always compare others to them throughout my endeavors. I thank God for SUNY @ Old Westbury everyday!!! So happy my Minister, Dr. Rev. Calvin O. Butts is keeping that Spirit alive😇🤗🤩‼️
