Want to be accused of wrong-doing by professors,AverageCommunications
Want to be accused of wrong-doing by professors, spoken to with attitude, and have to tell the professors that what they are teaching is incorrect? Look no further. Five Towns advertises they are Long Island's home for creative students. This is where you come to get shut out. Do not waste your time or money at this institution. They do not care about you. They just care about their money.

This was the worst choices ive made inBrightMusic - Performance
This was the worst choices ive made in my life. Aside from a handful of professors that have passion this school, they like to teach one thing and one thing only, Jazz. I understand that its a fundamental building block but without a dynamic range of styles like classical they basically force you to study and write what they want which is so constricting on learning to approach chord progressions from different angles, for the price youd be better off buying $30k worth of music equipment and books and learning on your own and at least at the end of that debt you'll have something thats worth what you paid for it! Please head my warning and dont give them your money theyre literally robbing peoples dreams

The faculty are all adjuncts.Not so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
The faculty are all adjuncts. The owner is a crazed 86 year old man who fired his own son & daughter from administration. The students are very poorly prepared for college. No one does work. Ridiculous emphasis on something called artifact that no other college makes you do. No faculty w/ PhD's. Kids get jobs in retail because the kids do not have writing or analytical skills. Sad place that tries to con ignorant kids who all think they are going to be rap stars! Hah! No administration ok'a any student activities. It's a joke.
