Very happy to attend LIU Brooklyn. Highly recommend the Honors Program, which offers smaller class sizes and great academic support. Academics is great overall. Wide range of diverse students and activities. Campus is located in convenient place, with plenty of stores and food eateries around the area. My only problem is tuition, as tuition is very expensive.

Professors are good, they work with you to give appropriate support to get your work done. People are friendly and area is booming, lots of new construction and things to do.

The reason my year went well is because of the students, campus activities, and the care the staff has shown. A primary reason for my increase in studies was because of the close relation i have developed with our dean of students. In order to become a better school LIU should look into bettering their living conditions.

My experience at Long Island University has been smoothed so far. Classes were easy to register and professors have been nice and helpful. The library is a bit small and needs a better computer room with more printers.

Liu is a great college there is a lot of diversity and you will find a support system. The counsellors and the security guards are very friendly and nice. There are many different clubs and extracurricular activities on campus almost every week.

At LIU BK I like the location! The school is located in downtown and everything is close by! This school is mostly known for the medical and business field. Every other major is basically pointless. The school is expensive but it matters on how you use you opportunities and resources wisely. Overall the dorms are pretty big than SUNY colleges and their are no parties on campus unless your on the sports team or in some way affiliated with them.
