Founded in 1955, Long Island University had a humble beginning. Their first classes took place in converted barns, servant’s bedrooms and garages but the school has grown exponentially over the years into one of the nation’s finest liberal arts schools. Situated on a beautiful, 307-acre residential campus, the university’s C.W. Post campus offers more than 250 degree choices and serves more than 8000 students a year. That number may seem high, but there are more than 320 faculty members so class numbers hover at around 20 per class so that a high level of education is provided to each student.
Students have a plethora of social, athletic and academic activities from which to choose. Long Island University’s C.W. Post campus has an active Greek life, numerous student clubs and organizations, an intercollegiate athletics organization and several club, intramural and recreational sports. Because the university is located less than an hour from New York City, students have access to some of the world’s finest restaurants, museums, cultural events and sports teams.
