LIU Post is a scenic, historic, and scholarly campus that offers a small-school environment with the access and resources of a major metropolitan university. The University’s 330-acre campus is located on the estate of Marjorie Merriweather Post, 27 miles east of New York City on Long Island’s Gold Coast. The campus houses the College of Veterinary Medicine, the first professional School of Accountancy, an AACSB-accredited Business School, and an award-winning theater program. LIU is home to the world-renowned Tilles Center for the Performing Arts and the Bethpage Federal Credit Union Stadium, where supporters gather to cheer on the Sharks’ Division I athletic program.
From 1921 to 1951, Hillwood was the home of Post Cereal Company heiress and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post. The estate’s lavish Tudor-revival mansion was a symbol of wealth and social prominence that embraced Long Island’s Gold Coast in the early 20th century. Like Jay Gatsby’s West Egg manse, Hillwood was an idyllic country retreat for family and friends of Ms. Post and her second husband, financial wizard E.F. Hutton, to escape the noise and crowds of New York City. Tennis, horseback riding, swimming, and golf, not to mention opulent parties frequented by royalty, world ambassadors, and celebrities, were just a few of the favorite pastimes that guests enjoyed on the estate.
In 1951, recognizing the educational needs of the growing number of families moving to the suburbs, Long Island University purchased the 177-acre estate for $200,000.
The university is committed to providing a high quality education through teaching excellence and impactful research opportunities. LIU offers over 275 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degree programs, educating nearly 15,000 students each year across multiple campuses. The University cultivates academic, professional, artistic, and co-curricular opportunities.
