Long Island University has numerous clubs and activities for it's students. The Association for Campus Programming (otherwise called the ACP) plans numerous events like movie nights during the fall and concerts during the spring. This semester they planned a city trip to see the Rockettes and the students only had to pay $30. The trip was amazing and the seats were very good. Events also include art exhibits, fashion shows, carnivals and all of this in just one semester. There was almost an exciting event every week. Even during finals week there was something going on. One example is the 12am breakfast, in which the cafeteria was open to all students and there was a large buffet style breakfast,» Read More
I think what makes post enjoyable is if you are studying something that you like. I am a dance major at the school and I love the experience that I am getting.

Most of all, close proximity to NYC.» Read More
