Bursar, Registrar and all other offices (except forQuite BrightPublic Health
Bursar, Registrar and all other offices (except for admissions) are horrible. They messed up my transfer credits and I could have gotten credit for a course that I am currently enrolled in. I transferred here from a much more competitive and difficult school so classes here are a joke. I have minimal work and barely have to study to get an A, not bragging. It baffles me how stupid some of the students are that attend here. I only transferred here to save money and raise my grades, which it did.

Question
This college is so TERRIBLE.Not so brightPolitical Science
This college is so TERRIBLE.
My high school teachers were more knowledgeable and helpful than the professors here at OW.
Most of the students here look shady and dirty
Most of the students who dorm are from Brooklyn and Queens that are poor and are on their EOP program-no wonder why mad people steal shit on this campus.

The President of the school is friends with Al Sharpton..nuff said
Trust me, don't go here...im leaving after this semester

Question
This school is the pits.Political Science
This school is the pits. Everyone who goes here looks as though they belong in prison. In fact, I call SUNY- Old Westbury Suny-Old Westbury state penitentiary. I cant imagine any employer hiring one of the bums who've graduated from this joke of a school.This school is a dumping ground for losers of every stripe. Close this garbage school down. The kids here are going nowhere.
