LIU Post is in a great location. The campus is absolutely beautiful! The parking is decent. Overall, nearly everything is in good condition. I've been to only a few campus events so far (but it's only week 3 of the Fall semester!). The ones I've gone to were very welcoming and bustling. Would I choose LIUP again? Hell, yes! ;)

I chose the perfect school! It is very easy here to be involved in activities because there are so many options. I have discovered great success coaches and attend great classes with great professors who are more than willing to help with your success! My experiences so far have all been positive and I expect the, to remain that way for the rest of my college career here.

I am a newly transfer student at Long Island Univeristy-post. I had a pleasant and welcoming first semester joining the Nursing Program. Why i feel my school is unique? Because, is a diverse school and i am proud and blessed to be the first chosen group to start Registered Nursing at LIU. Students are always wanting to make friends, join groups and make the best out of each course. The school offers beneficial ways to help motivate your goals and guidance towards positive academics. I am definitely excited to continue to my education here and graduate in 2019.
