Welcome to your freshman year at LIU Post! Congratulations on taking this important step on the journey toward your future. We are excited to help you discover your potential here at LIU Post!
As you are already finding out, the differences between being a college student and a high school student are many. The faculty and staff at LIU Post recognize that you will be facing many challenges and changes as you make this major transition in your life. We are here to help. During your first semester, you will participate in College 101, a 13-week, one-credit, pass/fail course, specifically designed to turn you from being the new kid on campus, into a seasoned college student.
In College 101, you will learn a variety of ways to meet the challenges of college life, to set goals for both academic and personal success and to become familiar with the LIU Post Campus and its services.
Your success as a college student will be affected by many things: the moral and ethical decisions you will face, your commitment to accomplishing your goals, your willingness to take advantage of new experiences, and opportunities and your continued motivation. With the help of your professor and your fellow new students, College 101 will assist you with time and financial management skills and good study habits. In addition, you will learn how to balance a personal life, academic work, jobs and extra-curricular activities. The curriculum begins with The Common Read, a book all incoming first-year students will read and share.
College 101 is all about you and your success. Welcome to LIU Post!
Here's what current students in College 101 are saying about their first year at LIU Post
