| okay, I came to this school after reading all of these negative comments about Post and just blew it off because i figured it was just a persons viewpoint of the school and it wouldnt matter to me. WRONG. this school is 40k a year.. i lived in the suites, we had no heat, no AC, 3 out of the 7 days of the week we had no hot water in our showers.. the dorms are terrible out dated with no sign of updating anytime soon since the school is MILLIONS IN DEBT. how? 40k a year for each student yet the school is in debt which has causes a massive cut in classes offered. the academics at this school are long in variety but short in value. my professors could care less about whether or not you came to class which just showed how much they didnt care about you, but instead about the money.the area of brookville is beautiful, as is the campus but 40k a year is absolutely not worth it. 90% of the people i met my first semester transferred the next .. |

| I love C.W. Post Campus. |
But, I'm a quiet person. I don't like parties, I don't like drinking until I puke or pass out, or going out every single night looking for nightclubs to dance in.
If the aforementioned are for you and you're looking to party then you might want another school. If you're interested in studying, making good contacts with professors and friends, and enjoying the proximity to NYC then by all means you won't be disappointed with what CW Post has to offer. Student clubs/groups and athletic events are easy to learn about and join. The facilities are beautifully maintained, especially the Pratt Recreation Center.
I've never had any problems with the faculty. They are helpful and make themselves avaliable to you if you need extra help. If you put in the effort you will receieve the grade you deserve. If you slack off, don't read your textbooks, don't study and don't try, then don't complain about the poor academic quality of Post.
The campus dining halls have food better than many college campuses with a wide variety of dishes to choose from. The only thing I don't like about the food is that the dining locations close around 8 PM so if you want midnight snacks you need to get delivery or go off campus (which isn't so bad considering the 24-hour Pathmark about two miles away).
It's hard if you don't have a car here though. Some classes are quite a hike away and if you need to buy certain materials, such as art supplies, it's difficult to carpool. The shuttle is useful but not always on time and not as frequent as I would have liked when I needed to use it.
I was given a partial scholarship to come here, but the horse stables on campus sealed the deal for me. The equestrian team allowed me to participate in intercollegiate riding right on campus which is an opportunity no other college on Long Island can match.

|Not so bright|
| The campus itself is very nice. In the spring time everyone comes outside and chills on the great lawn and it looks like a college from a movie. The winter time is a little more dull but that is everywhere. The campus life is there, you just have to find it. Activities are always, and i mean always, going on. The advertising for the campus events needs to be improved but if you look you can find something. You do meet great friends at the school and their are pretty much from all over. I lived in a suite my freshman year and met so many people from all over the east coast. The suites themselves are gross and need to be updated but if you can get past the dirty floor your good. The regular dorms are so much nicer then other colleges ive been to though so thats a plus. Professors in my department, education, were amazing. I was always greeted with a helping hand and the work they give you is interesting if you get into it. The school is in an awsome area with 3 malls atleast down the road and a 24 hour supermarket. The bar and club scene is a taxi ride away but its not bad. Also their are so many other colleges around you meet more people that way too at bars and clubs. The party scene on campus. I never went home at all during the semesters and i always had something to do on the weekends. RAs are not strict and let you have your parties in your room as long as its under control, NO other college is like that! The couple downsides are the cost of the school. I think its something like 41k now a year. I have so many scholarships and what not that it dose not effect me too much. Some people say the campus goes home on weekends, to be honest, those are just the close minded long island kids that have trouble making friends. If you are looking to meet people and chill, there is always stuff to do on campus, there are a couple thousand other kids there, comon! The last downside is the boring and dull student center. That is getting redone though so no worries. |
