LIU Post is an exquisite school equipped with a full recreational center, gourmet food, and a club for everybody. Like all schools the work is diifficult but there are upperclass tutors and teachers available to assist in any problems you may have. I cannot wait to begin in September.

Long Island University has great advisors and is a great University to attend. It is a little expensive but worth it because you know that you will graduate with the help that you are receiving.
Kristina from Forest Hills, NY
This campus is beautiful, it is a great environment, and very relaxing. There are plenty of computer labs and study areas, and being a commuter, this is very important. I am a Psychology major, and all of my Professors are very helpful, and give their time to help students, and there is plenty of tutoring available.
