"All of my professors have a PhD or a doctorate, and they have a really good way of relating to the students. If you have trouble understanding something, they are always free to answer questions. Long Island University has a big enough campus that you meet a lot of people but, at the same time, you're not just another student because you're given personal attention and you don't get lost. So I would definitely recommend it."
