    Long Island University has numerous clubs and activities for it's students. The Association for Campus Programming (otherwise called the ACP) plans numerous events like movie nights during the fall and concerts during the spring. This semester they planned a city trip to see the Rockettes and the students only had to pay $30. The trip was amazing and the seats were very good. Events also include art exhibits, fashion shows, carnivals and all of this in just one semester. There was almost an exciting event every week. Even during finals week there was something going on. One example is the 12am breakfast, in which the cafeteria was open to all students and there was a large buffet style breakfast,

    I think what makes post enjoyable is if you are studying something that you like. I am a dance major at the school and I love the experience that I am getting. Along with all the great people I meet, I am able to further my knowledge in something I love doing. The campus is also an ideal size for me as well as the location. If you're looking for a smaller campus with a homey feel then post is for you.

    I don't like this campus because it's so old and there is always something wrong in the dorms, the food is always the same and we don't have enough variety. There's never anyone here because seventy percent of the students are commutters and everyone goes home on the weekends.

    I have no idea where else a person can study Forensics and Art and ride horses at the same time. Our on campus activities are incredible, equestrian clubs, forensic clubs, fraternities and sororities the options are endless. The campus itself is an old school style. Some building remind me of Medieval Style building and it beautiful. The gardens, woodland pathways, massive lawns and even ruins. I never get board of discovering new places here. Most of all, close proximity to NYC.
