2 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Campus security is very lenient at LIU. You can usually get away with most things as long you do not make them blatantly obvious, and even if you are obvious sometimes they just do not care. This may be beneficial for some such as the underage students who want to drink, but it does have its downsides. There was an incident on campus involving myself and security handled it poorly. A random man exposed himself to me while I was working on campus and when I informed campus security they were extremely blase about it. It was a traumatizing event and I wish they had taken it more seriously.

3 College Junior

Academics: The academics at LIU are decent, although workloads can be intense. It is obviously not the same for every major though. Most professors are usually helpful, and if they are not you have access to free tutoring which is a wonderful amenity on campus.

4 College Junior

Academics: As a Pre-Med student I have a very heft workload and the curriculum is difficult, but fortunately I am genuinely interested in what I study so it is worth it. Finding an internship or a job in my intended field is nearly impossible at this point of my college career so I will have to settle for something close but completely unrelated like working at an office in a hospital or something along those lines.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is food everywhere around campus ranging from dirt cheap to Michelin star restaurants. There are plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood that offer great food at decent prices and no matter what time it is there is always something open. The variety gives students a chance to try dishes from all over the world and experience something new.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I grew up in the area of my university so my opinion is biased, but New York is one of the most diverse and cultural areas in the world making it an amazing place to live. Anything you can think of is available to you and usually only a few train stops away. There is always something to do and something new to see, and despite some of the stereotypes New Yorkers are some of the friendliest and helpful people you'll ever meet. (well some of them)

4 College Junior

Majors: I have yet to have an internship because school and work consume so much of my time, but I plan on finding one this year. I do worry about finding an internship in my field because it is competitive. Finding internships in the medical field while your still finishing your undergrad is very difficult.

3 College Junior

Majors: Getting into my program was fairly simple. As long as you maintain good grades and try to involve yourself in some extracurricular activities you have a good shot at getting into any program. It is all about making yourself unique.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Because we are in the heart of Brooklyn only a train stop away from Manhattan we have a variety of options for going out. Being so close to the bars and clubs is not only beneficial in terms of fun, but it is also helpful in terms of safety. If you drink a little too much or you happen to be alone, it never costs much to get in a cab and make it campus quickly and safely. When going out is not a possibility or a desire students usually bring the parties to the dorms. In most cases it has a positive impact on the students experience as long as they can hold their liquor.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I do not think that rating students looks on campus should be part of a survey. It seems a bit childish. Unfortunately I keep to myself and focus on my studies so I cannot really give you an in depth review regarding these topics. My boyfriend and I are both pretty cute so thats really all I can tell you.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class sizes at LIU are very good. You do not just feel like you're lost in a sea a faces, and most of the time the professors actually know your name. I have had several professors who are very passionate about their subjects making their classes engaging and interesting. Of course you'll occasionally have a professor who seems completely uninterested in teaching, and offers no help or support, but its rare. Because the university offers a variety of majors, there is a good amount of classes to choose from. Even if the class you would like to take is way outside of your major, you're still usually allowed to take it as long as you have the required prerequisites.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: On campus we have a career services center, as well as a internship center both of which are efficient and helpful. They help throughout the entire process of applying for an internship or job, starting from creating your resume, up until the very end of your interview. There are several job, and major fairs throughout the year as well giving students another opportunity to seek employment or internships in their fields. Although they offer these great services the value of a degree from this school is somewhat hindered because of its high price. You pay ivy league prices without the actual boost of coming from an ivy league school. They also recently instituted a flat rate policy that was meant to "help" help students, but it actually made the tuition more expensive.

1 College Junior

Campus Dining: Practically every student who dorms has an issue with the dining on campus. In the dining hall in the dorm the food is atrocious. There are not many options to choose from, and it is neither tasty nor healthy. It is extremely rare that there is something decent in the cafeteria, and the staff often handles the food poorly. They wont change gloves, clean knives before cutting, or wipe down dirty surfaces before placing your food on them. The A la carte meal plan, which is basically the only one the school offers, costs a whopping $2,500, which is a ridiculous amount for the quality of food we receive. You end up spending half of that eating off campus when the cafeteria has nothing to offer. Any other options on campus are only slightly better, and pretty costly.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Although the on campus housing at LIU is very convenient it is not cost efficient or worthy of its high price tag. The building at first glance seems decent, but there are underlying problems such as mold and leaks that go unnoticed and unattended to. There is a decent social environment on the campus, but there is an obvious separation between athletes and non-athletes. It would be nicer if students blended more. Living on campus has its perks despite these flaws. You are close to all of the schools resources such as the tutoring center and extensive library, and you only have to walk a few feet to get to class. If they invested the money we spent into upgrading the housing facility it would be worth it, but until then it is hard to swallow the high cost of the less than average building.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We have several successful teams at LIU, and because there is a lot of support and spirit around the campus. The university places a big importance on athletics so the facilities are state of the art and very well kept. Luckily non athletes like myself have access to many of these facilities making them beneficial for all, and give athletes and non athletes a place to interact and meet outside of class.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Campus dining options are reasonable in terms of the variety and healthiness, however the price is not always reasonable.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: So far, I have received most of my desired and needed financial aid, but it requires a few appointments with the financial aid office who refuse to speak nicely. However, I have friends who have had great difficulty in receiving their needed aid. My advice would be to fill out your FAFSA and TAP as soon as possible, and keep contacting the financial aid office to receive the aid you deserve.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: In order to get into the Nursing program, we have to take the HESI A2 exam, which tests our basic reading and grammar skills before we are approved into the Nursing program. This is an appropriate process to allow entrance into the program. Tips would be to buy a study book a few months in advance and study every once in a while to perfect your testing skills, in order to ensure admission into the program.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: As of now I haven't applied into the Nursing program yet. However, I am in the university Honors program which provides challenging and enriching classes. As honors students, we have our very own advisors, helpful professors, small classes, and our very own lounge for studying, snacking, and chilling.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am not aware of how the school assists in finding off-campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: As of yet, I have not experienced or heard of school policies interfering in the academic or social lives of students. I believe the reason would be that there is appropriate enforcement of rules and policies which the students adhere to.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Student life on campus includes a library for quiet study time, several hangout spots, many clubs and teams to keep you busy in your free time, and spacious hangout spots just to relax and have fun between classes.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The area surrounding the campus includes affordable and accessible transportation, food, shopping, and fun.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: As an honors student, I can honestly say that the academics is challenging to the extent that it improves you for the best. The professors are extremely helpful and the curriculum is broken down to result in our success in our prospective fields.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a Nursing major, and even though I haven't started my Nursing program classes yet, I already have a semester-by-semester breakdown of the workload and classes. There is also a hospital right around the corner which offers volunteer opportunities to help build an experience.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: LIU Brooklyn is an excellent example of the New York's melting pot. We have students here that have roots from several parts of the world. There are several different languages spoken here, diverse dress styles, and religious opinions. We are always keen to know about one another. This has to be one of my favorite things about LIU.
