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!

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!
Old Westbury is a great commuter school with night time classes for anyone who needs it. Great school to go to if you are working. Parking is terrible. Either have to follow someone around for a spot or park far away and walk. Professors are overall good. The School Of Business is good as well. I enjoyed my time there. The offices, like financial aid etc. will not answer the phone so you must go there to get anything done. Overall an average experience.
