in the Honors Program at Dowling and through it I've
made some friends because we had the same classes during
my freshman year. Honors students really do receive the
best of the best from Dowling's faculty—the professors are very
knowledgeable and most of them have earned master's degrees in
their fields of study. You will be impressed.
I first arrived to the campus, I found it rather
small and I was a bit dissapointed, but I was
aware this for I had seen the images of the
college in its printed media. Eventually, I became accustomed
to its intimacy, though I wanted the city life and
faster pace of larger universities like Fordham University, to which
I was accepted, but I decided to attend Dowling to
avoid the higher cost.
There's nothing too bad about Dowling
except that the social life is not so great, but
that depends on the student because there are many clubs,
events, trips abroad and special showcases at the college like
culturally themed events, public organizations, etc.
I advise staying in
the Brookhaven dormitory though it's on the secondary campus, but
the main campus in Oakdale is where one has most
classes. There's a shuttle bus which goes between the
campuses and it also stops at the Oakdale station on
the Long Island Railroad, which one can take to New
York for fun in the city.
