Fjinancial aid employees are rude and uninformed. No help with scholarships. Not good with numbers either. There has been a continuing problem with applying my financial aid to my student account. Went to financial aid for questions. No one knew what I was talking about, even though I had printouts of the different student account activities posted on my student account. One year later, problem has not been resolved. Very dissapointing and frustrating experience! Beware.

LIU Brooklyn is located in Fort Green area of Brooklyn. A few blocks away from school is a small community hospital called the Brooklyn Hospital Center and a picturesque park designed by the same individual as Prospect Park and Central Park. The park has soccer fields, running path, visitor's center at the top (with restrooms and water fountains, concerts in the summer, farmers markets on Saturdays, great sledding hills in the winter, and plenty of room to lay out in the sun in the summer time. It's also dog friendly!
On the weekends, the best thing to do is to take a leisurely walk over here, grab some food (on Saturday, a few delicious items from the Greenmarket.)

I have been able to walk to an Applebees on DeKalb (the only restaurant that offers a student discount, but has pretty bad service), a Subway, a SmashBurger, a Burger King, a Chipotle, a Panera Bread, and many other restaurants without feeling tired or as though I've walked too far. The Chipotle was a bit of a ways, however, but I managed. Along the way there are many other restaurants that offer similar food, ice cream, sushi, or coffee. I also am able to walk to a Target and a Grocery store within 10-15 minutes. Very great placement and options!
