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.
Tips for prospective students
This is the perfect school for students looking to concentrate on their studies, be part of a beautiful campus, and have the opportunity to meet many different people.
Academic Rigor
Any class can have its difficulties, but with the amount of help provided from the Professor's aside from class time and tutoring available, many can do well and achieve their goals.
Food and Dining
There's a variety of different kinds of foods available, of course, you have your sandwich/pizza's available, as well as our favorite Subway, and small stores located around to pick your favorite fruit or yogurt.
What to do for fun
Great shopping mall nearby, great running track and big gym with many amenities. Also, there are many groups and sports to join.

It is really fun. It's full of nice people. You find out how good you really are.
Tips for prospective students
Look at the flyers on the walls in the buildings, that is how you will find out about activities and where to meet people.
Academic Rigor
The professors really know what they are doing and will help you at all hours of the day. There are many small classes, so you have a better student to professor ratio.
Dorm Life
There are many building choices and they are all in the same area so you don't have to live on one end of the campus while your friends live on the other end. The regular dorm rooms are much bigger than typical university rooms and the buildings have a warm atmosphere.
Food and Dining
The food is average, but it gets the job done. Some days the dining hall will be very good, while on weekends it could be okay. Hillwood Cafe is newly renovated though, and has a plenty of options and great food.
What to do for fun
As I said, pay attention to the flyers on campus. There is a cinema to watch movies every month, game room, trips to six flags or basketball games. Also, join the many clubs on campus or Greek life.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There are some cool hang out spots like the garden, the labyrinth, or between admissions and the personel office.
Also, there are a lot of cats on campus that are strays. LIU: Post has a Cat Committee to take care of these strays.
Great for these types of students
This campus is great for students who want a medium-sized college feel, in New York, but not in the city.
Clubs and Activities
There are a lot of things to do on campus. There are over 50 clubs at Post and if we do not have something that interests you, you can make it yourself.
Campus Safety
Campus Saftey is very reliable at Post. There is a 24 hour watchman who rides around campus and makes sure everyone is safe. Emergency blue lights are scattered all around the campus as well to ensure safety.

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.
Tips for prospective students
Wifi is EVERYWHERE but the dorms so you must bring an ethernet cable for your laptops...even though incoming students get free iPads. If you are a party person be sure to stay with friends, the campus is not in itself dangerous but the slightest vulnerability can harm just about anyone. Enjoy everything LIU Post has to offer internships, clubs, and the academic attributes as well.
Dorm Life
You can dorm with 2-8 people

TRADITIONAL- 2-4
SUITES-6-8

some rooms have bunkbeds and others don't, but if you prefer bunkbeds poles are available.
If you have a friend that you want to dorm with you, both must indicate that on your housing applications to verify mutual consent.
Food and Dining
Freshman are mandated to select the Pioneer Living Plan1 ---it is an unlimited all you want to eat buffet BUT your dining dollars DO run out so spend carefully. Do NOT allow your eyes to be bigger than your stomach
What to do for fun
work out at the Pratt center - swimming, yoga, ZUMBA, treadmills weights it is all there.
Several clubs host parties and fairs
I am looking forward to rush week(first week) because they have a giant Carnival all throughout the campus and a club fair as well

Am learning a lot
Long Island University prides itself as a well educated school for everything and anything. They want you to learn and enjoy learning so the hire the best teachers they can. My history teacher my first semester was a writer and had written books on countless historical events and has been asked to write reviews on other books as well. Most of my teachers I was lucky to get made class exciting and interesting to the students. I will also admit there were some teachers that gave me a hard time but even they helped me when I asked them to.
Am enjoying being here
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,
Bang for the buck
Long Island University is pretty expensive but you get a lot for it. It is a private school and it's not that large in population so you are able together attention you need when you need it. They are able to help you in anyway they can. Plus you are getting a lot of experience and well educated professionals teaching your classes. Overall I would still make the same choice I did.
Tips for prospective students
Really make sure you have the financial aid for the school. Try to get as much cash as you can from them, scholarships, and federal aid. Long Island university is a great school but the knowledge of you owing money will stress you out.
Great for these types of students
Students who want to experience a diverse group of people and like various different things. Long island university gives multiple options for majors, foods, dorming choices and more. It's a school of culture, experience, education and fun.
