Early Years of the Campus

Early Years of the CampusThe C.W. Post Campus was established in 1954 on the former estate of Marjorie Merriweather Post, located on Long Island’s north shore. During the first four years of its existence, the Campus had little, if any funds to construct academic buildings. Classes were held in existing structures, including barns, horse stables, greenhouses, cottages and a mansion.
