3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: depends on the person, but for the most part student are nice to each other. but there are certain "Clicks".

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: the athletics and recreation offices do a good job at promoting sports, both varsity and intramural.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: students can go to NYCOM for medical assistance.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: there are alot of food places around, some more expensive than others, but for the most part its pretty good.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: its located in a very rich part of Nassau. also right next door to CW Post

3 College Sophomore

Academics: if you get a professor who can speak clear english, cares about whether or not you're learning, and doesn't ignore students looking for extra help, you'll be fine. unfortunately there are quite a number of professors who are the exact opposite.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: parking lots aren't really close to the buildings where classes go on, and unless you show up early you will probably be parking in the farther spots.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: the greek organizations on campus have great people who work hard to make campus life fun through events, but the down fall it that its not as big as it used to be. if more people went greek, i'm sure it would be so much better.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: there are a bunch of computers all over campus, and while some on them might not be the fastest, they are still pretty good.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: during this passed winter the school had to cancel classes whenever the snow got too bad. But living in NY my whole life, i'm personally used to how bad it can get.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: depends on where you look and if you luck out with a nice place.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It depends on where you look.

Local Atmosphere: As long as you have enough time to travel 15 minutes from school there are plenty of things to do. My friends and I love to go out to eat and then go to the mall. That's what many students do when they have a lot if time to kill they usually go to one of the two malls by my school. There is also a park that I go to by the mall that is nice to go for a walk and relax a bit before class. I feel safe in many places off campus especially at the Broadway mall since I always see security around and nothing bad usually happens at that mall. Many people have a good attitude around campus and off.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Right now I'm in the health sciences program and the workload has been great. I've heard people say that the workload in college is like honors and AP classes in high school, but I actually think it's easier. If been able to do all my assignments and still have time for myself whereas in high school I was always doing homework. I think the curriculum for my program is great so far. My school also has extra help programs just like my high school only it's a student that helps me understand the information and this has been very helpful.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's nice when the weather is beautiful considering everyone will hangout in the quad if the weather is nice and warm. When it sows it takes a long time to get to school and parking is harder since sometimes you can't see the lines for the parking spots. Since is cold my friends and I like to move our cars a lot to get a close parking spot, but when it's warm and the sun is out it's nice to walk around on campus.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My experience with getting financial aid at my school took a few times to get a set amount, but I'm happy with what I have received. My SAT scores and my high school grades helped me get the financial aid I have today. My high school grades were really good which made up for my SAT score las which were good, but only 100 points off for the higher scholarship which I received later on. I am receiving no help from FASFA so all the help I can get from the school and if I get any other scholarship will help pay for school. The only tip that I can give anyone is what my teachers told me to do and that was to call the school and say you would really like to attend the school and see if they can give any more scholarship money to you.

Health & Safety: Last semester it would get dark early and a few lights were out while walking to the parking lot so my friends and I would walk together. Eventually they did fix the lights which was helpful. Generally I feel safe on campus as long as I'm with another person. There are security guards driving around on campus, but I had an incident where my battery died and I was stuck in the middle of the parking lot. I had my hazards on and tried to get the security's attention, but the car kept going the other way. My dad came to campus to help me but they didnt even question him when he was driving on the hill of grass to get to my car. I feel that they aren't as attentive to things as I would like them to be.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I think the campus is strict with the important things like the underage drinking. They are also strict with attendance. The policy is once your late two times it considered as one absence. I just don't like that when my friend had to leave a lecture early the teacher called her out and said that she can repeat the course next year since she didnt stay for the review. In college you should be able to leave early if you have an emergency and if your 5 minutes late you shouldn't get penalized.

Off-Campus Dining: My friend and I like to go off campus and eat considering its cheaper and there are better options. The only bad thing is we have to drive like 15 minutes away to get good food like Chipotle, Panera, gyros etc. We try to eat healthy instead of going straight to Wendy's and Burger King which is right up the block from the school. The cost is definitely better than campus considering you get more for your money and the quality is great. Although they don't give students discounts which would be a nice option. They variety gets better when you drive the 15 minutes away from school. As I said before Chiptole, Panera, the mall food court, Greek and Colombian places in Hicksville are delicious and affordable.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computer labs are great on campus. Only one time it was hard to get on a computer considering it was free hour and many students were waiting for one. I only had one time that the computer was really slow and I was getting frustrated since my peers and I were trying to finish a project. The wireless access is excellent and I had no problem hooking up all of my devices. I have been bringing my tablet to school for awhile now and love having it with me. For one of my classes I use my tablet to follow the PowerPoint my teacher is lecturing about, but that's only if he remembers to put the PowerPoint on BlackBoard before class. Two of my classes told us to bring a laptop to work on our projects with our group, so I do think that bringing a laptop or tablet is helpful. Also if you can't get on a computer having your own is good.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athetics at my school are great. Although I haven't been able to attend a game since I live far away I hear they are fun. Most students are involved in a club which I haven't been able to do yet. For my first year I wanted to focus on academics and if a club fits then that would be great. I have seen a lot of student clubs doing cool things during free hour at my school. They set up booths for donations to special organizations and when it's nice out they have activities for the students to do when they are hanging out. A big thing that affects students with joining a club is their schedule. Many students like me live far which make it hard to stay late for a meeting with a club. Also students work so after school many of us leave to do homework or go to work. Schedules make it hard to get involved with a club for my peers and I.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: No one drinks on campus considering, we are a dry campus and the school has strict rules. Although I thought there was a rule about cigarettes and not being allowed to smoke near the buildings which doesn't seem to be enforced. Also there was an incident where I smelled students smoking marijuana in their car and made the section of the parking lot smell. At my school I haven't seen or been in a situation dealing with peer pressure.

College Senior

Greek Life: I don't partake in Greek life

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I received half of the amount of tuition for a scholarship

3 College Senior

Weather: It is hot in the summer and cold in the winter. No complaints
