Weather: Last huge snow storm we had was bad. It took while for them to clean parking lots and the condition of the roads were inconvenience. However, school did their best to assure us the best.

Guys & Girls: There are student about 10 different countries and they all bring their culture , lifestyle and etc. I think that is awesome to see and meet with different cultures. Instead of reading about them, you live with them.

Drug Safety: I have only seen it couple times around school and some of the students were stinking in classroom.

4 College Junior

Computers: We have about 10 computer labs where every student can find space and appropriate computer or any other device for his/her work to be completely done. I think that you do not have to bring your computer to school unless you have your all work saved in your computer and you want to continue from there. School has high speed internet and every computer lab has at least 1 or more printers.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The courses that I am taking are okay, but I feel like I need more for my major and my school doesn't seem to have much for my major. I also might have concerns in finding a job after college in this field. My career goal is to become a crime scene investigator.

The professors at SUNY Old Westbury can be helpful and are more than experienced in their fields. Miscommunication can be an issue among students, though, so a little more organization would go a long way in students avoiding frustration and even contempt. Classes are hard but manageable, but most students are able to apply knowledge gained from previous courses and succeed.

The personal level of interest the school takes in students could be better. The registration process must be streamlined and a set system should be established to increase the speed of the process. Otherwise, everyone is very helpful, especially financial aid.
