"I enjoyed the small classes instead of all huge lecture classes. There was always events on campus such as movie nights and concerts to go to. The campus itself is also beautiful and it is fun to explore around the mansion with the labyrinth and rose garden. You can choose which dorm to live in and they offered a quiet dorm as well as what is known as the party dorm."

"My college education prepared me for a career in education. The graduate program was very hands on and allowed me to work face to face with students."

"Long Island University -Brooklyn is a beautiful campus with a tiny bookstore, a few cafes and an education building that is being remodeled. It is in the heart of downtown Brooklyn. The main campus is right across the street from Junior's Cheesecake restaurant. It's near many train stations and also very close to the Manhattan Bridge on Flatbush extension. Parking is a nightmare if you're considering driving your best bet is to park in the hospital parking lot behind the campus adjacent to the gym . Most of my classes were taken in the 4 story education building on Hanover place which is a block-and-a-half away from the main campus. For the most part my professors were average but I had two exceptional professors who went above and beyond for the students registered in our program. These professors were so knowledgeable. They truly mastered their craft. Their lessons were life-changing. I was a member of the teaching fellows program so my experience is different from a traditional graduate student. The Registration Department of the education program is very responsive to emails. They get right back to you. They are very helpful and remind you when you need to register for classes. I would recommend Long Island University to other teaching fellows looking for a program that is close to home and that will prepare them to be successful, engaging, motivational educators."

"The Manhattan Campus was very convenient for me because I work in the city and didn't have to travel far for evening classes."

"This is a smaller but more expensive college. I found classes to be small, and several job fairs were hosted upon graduation. I did find the evening classes convenient for working professionals, but the expenses were high ."

"The program really prepares its students well for their career. The professors try to help as much as they can and they are available after class and during office hours. Some professors are not so approachable and some can be rude. There are some that are unfair in the classroom. Overall, the teachers are a hit or miss. The tuition at this school is very expensive!"

"I really think the program provides students with the theories and concepts behind being a teacher, and does so very well. I have learned a lot from professors in the education field about teaching techniques and the way special education works within our schools. In regard to physical classroom experience (minus teacher observations), the program is lacking. Your first experience actually teaching in a classroom is student teaching. Also, as a teacher who is already certified, it does not provide an "already certified" route, so I'm re-doing some certification requirements as part of this master's program."

"I like the program I am in. LIU has very good professors. The problem is "Education" in master's is very expensive. The first year, there is all kind of aid available, but for the second and third year, students are on their own. Student are advised to look for scholarships."

"Tuition is very expensive, but that's what you get for going to private college. Class sizes are good and getting information is not difficult, unlike CUNY and SUNY schools. Very convenient to get to, large availability of class schedules, and teachers are flexible and easy to work with for the most part. I was in the school counseling program, which is honestly a bit of a pushover. Not an immense amount of work and way too much emphasis on mutliculturalism (yes it is important to learn, but not in 5 separate classes). Overall, not a difficult program but also getting a job after getting an MSed is not as simple as it seems, at least not in NY."

"The financial aid and bursar merged. This dept. is a mess so if you decide to go to this school then save all your paperwork. They billed me wrong and now they charged me a lot and said basically too bad to me."
