Dowling was a very small college and my time there was well spent. If you were looking for the large university experience, this wasn’t that type of place. The campus was small, but gorgeous and the surrounding area was quiet and charming. The school was alongside Connetquot River and you could often sit by the riverside and do your schoolwork. The professors knew who you were and it was easy to engage with them in the small classroom setting. After it closed, I was saddened to leave and transfer to another school. I really enjoyed the short stay I had at Dowling and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

If I were able to travel back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would inform myself that there is practicality to high school and to try harder. I would also inform myself that the college one goes to has a significant impact on one's life, and to research all of the schools with programs in philosophy before I settled. Finally, I would tell myself to try and earn as many scholarships as possible, since tuition is rridiculously high and student loans are incredibly oppressing.
The best thing at Dowling College is that the Professors are always willing to help you. Student life is involved with the coursework and you get appreciated by getting both good grades and participating in school clubs.
My classmates are diverse, open-minded, and friendly.
The teachers at this school seem to really care about your progress and how you do in their class. Everyone there is really helpful and if they can not help you they will direct you to the people who can help you instead of giving you the run around.

The wifi. the school wifi sucks and the fact that the school doesnt have a football program which really sucks.
I wish I had known how much textbooks would cost. I would have bought stock in those textbook companies.
I really dislike this question because I am a person who is really enthusiastic about my school and everything that it has to offer. However, I do know what other complain most about when it comes to Dowling. Many feel that it does not have the best reputation. Those same students feel that this will hinder their future.
A person who would like to get a good education.
I'm the type of student who is very big on school spirit but is also extrememly focused on my studies in order to keep up my good grades.
Dowling is a private school so the tuition is higher than state schools, so if a person does not receive a lot of financial aid and does not wish to take out private loans, then this school is not for them.
The RA's in the dorm do try to arrange extremely cheesy events, but they are not often. There is really no partying at this school, just kids who drink, smoke weed, and blast music in their respective rooms. If you come here, you will be hard pressed to get any sleep whatsoever as many of the kids blast their music on all days of the week for no reason at all. No guest speakers who are important, as this school does not have a great reputation and is so small. Most RA's in the dorm do not care at all, in fact some of the RA's are even in students rooms smoking marijuana with them! Talk about a conflict of interest. This is primarily due to the fact that many of the RA's are of the same mindset of the scumbags who attend here.
I must warn potential students, during the tour staff really goes out of their way to show you a school with nice students, nice buildings, and no problems. This really is not the case at all, especially on the brookhaven campus. If you are thinking about attending here, I would highly advise that you do a little research on the students that attend here. A collegeboard GPA breakdown shows that 5% had a HS GPA of below a 1.0 and 18% had a GPA between 2.0-1.0. This really is starting to show badly in the student body. Through my first semester, I dealt with music blasting on weekdays to around 4-5am, theft out of my room, my door being kicked in as a joke(?), suitemates smoking weed in my room all the time, random losers in my room at all hours of day and night, etc. The list just goes on and the same events are taking place in the second semester!
For the most part yes.
The professors here show that they really care about our work ethics. I personally enjoy men vs female teaching techniques, only due to my personal opinions and experience. Overall, the professors keep the classes in line and seem to do an excellent job both as teaching to the entire class and one on one .. depending which professor you have.
There is absolutely no intellectual life in this school. I have heard many extremely ignorant conversations by nearly everybody in the student body. The classes are extremely easy, but you really do not learn anything in them. There have been kids who have gotten below a 2.0 for 3 semesters in a row and they are still in this school! This is in direct contrast to the policy of "academic probation" that Dowling publishes in its handbook. This school does not care about its academic reputation more than it cares about money. This is not a place for learning, as the students are not conductive to it at all.
People think that students at Dowling are rich and that mommy and daddy paid for thier ride to the college. That is not true and I am living proof! I got an academic scholarship and I have worked out paying for some of the classes without any help or aid at all.
People think that Dowling students are stuck up. This is also not true for most students. Most Dowling students are friendly people just going for thier degree and enjoying themselves while they take the path to get there.
The two best places to get work done on campus are the library or computer lab. In both of these places, located directly across the hall from one another, there are plenty of computers and printing available to students. There's always someone around to assist you if you need it and everyone is very respectful with noise control.
Our campus actually offered a "learn to dance" gandum style.... yah know that korean popstar? Well they actually also sent us a video of is as well haha. It was pretty fun to see how many people went out to do it, I couldn't make it unfortunately but it seemed like it was a lot of fun!!!
I do not reside at the dorms, but from what I've heard .. I noticed that there is a shuttle bus which takes the students to and from the dorms, which is a plus. And I see many people interacting with their dorm mates so the people residing there must be friendly.
