4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Great Health and safety programs

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love most of my professors but sometimes the classes are hard to keep up with work

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's fine living on campus

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There have been some issues with transferring of credits but other than that not many issues

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity of the school could be more diverse. There is a stronger presence of one ethnicity than the other. I wish the school was way more diverse.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Academics at Old Westbury are great. The classes are interesting and the professor are ok. Some professors seem not fit for the job. One thing that I would warn about choosing classes. Do your research before consulting with a programmer.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The student health services is exceptional. They are very helpful and act like a full hospital. Though they do not do any surgeries, they have close to everything other than an operating table. They are willing to help you and guide you to a healthy life style.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Only being a freshman, I have not experienced enough to give an in depth answer. From my experience so far, the classes are ok. The professors seem to enjoy teaching about the topic they cover. Some teachers seem as if they care one day and the next they don't. My experience has been overall good. Some professors want to hear their opinions come out of students mouths and not grade any papers. I have yet to receive grades for a class.

Campus Housing: Housing on campus is very small. The school is know for commuters. There are more commuters than those that dorm on campus. Each room is spaciously oversized. The new side has heating and air conditioning. The old side only has heating. The dorms are also shared with NYIT. They take most of the space on the old side. The old side has suites that have 2 rooms that fits two people and one room for one occupant. On the new side, there is a lounge on each floor. On the ground floor, there is a kitchen, pool table and television that may or may not work. The guest policy is ok. There are only allowed 6 people for a double room and 9 people for s triple.

Campus Housing: WORSE PART ABOUT CAMPUS. how can you have a "campus" with no community.

Greek Life: everyone gets the same lame housing. from freshman to senior year theres no different choices. other schools have suites and better housing for upper classmen

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have never been a fan of Greek life! When KS (Kappa Sigma) was introduced on campus, I was pushed to join to meet the requirement number. I thought my views would change as been apart of the founding fathers. I was terribly wrong. They were all degenerates talking about perverted things behind the public's eye.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: SUNY Old Westbury did not have the college experience at all. With all the unnecessary rules and regulations, I had more freedom in high school. The school revolves around the commuters, and forgets about the kids who actually live on campus.

Athletics: The athletics department at SUNY Old Westbury could also have changes made. Part of the athletics building, we have a big general sports room that can fit 5 NBA size basketball courts. The complex also has an Olympic size pool. We have a mediocre excorsize room that has treadmills, weights and other machines that are there but do not work.

The school can make ample changes that would make the experience of college a lot more enjoyable!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: SUNY College at Old Westbury is somewhat a decent school. I wish there was more things to do during the academic year. Our school has very little things to do. All we have is a gym with an Olympic size pool, basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball and softball fields and a soccer field. Part of the college experience is having a football team. We have ample space for a football field and I can guarantee that we would have a great team! The cafeteria should have better quality food. The food reminds me of public school food in New York City. We should also have more dining options other than a fake chipotle, Nathan's and Dunkin Donuts.

The staff, faculty and other employees of the school are amazing! Many of them are very helpful and easy to connect with! Our school is a safe campus due to having State Troopers on campus. Our campus is massive, which is both a plus and negative. We have ample room to excercise, but we need a motor viehicle to go off campus. We are near 2 major highways and 15 minutes away from the LIRR.

The school transportation system could be more reliable as I have waited over 20 minutes for a shuttle van to take from gate A to the main building on campus. We only have one person who drives the van and does other administative duties. That contributes to the shuttle bus being delayed.

I wish the school spent more money as there are several things that could be changed. I hope this has given you insight on choosing schools! Happy college hunting!

Overall Experience: I think the students earn a invaluable education that they can take to apply to many fields and jobs after graduation.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The best school for the education and its programs that tuition pays for, but they need to improve the quality of the food on campus and improve the library and its studying areas for students.

Campus Housing: I commute to school so I'm not too familiar with campus housing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life can be seen and felt at my school and there is lots of involvement but it's not something that has a direct influence in the college life.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My school is worth the money that is paid for by me and the students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really do love my school because of the Honors College. The honors college and the other students in the honors college make this school what it is in my eyes. If it wasn't for them I probably would have transferred.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
