National Guide for Colleges Endorses Schools for Holistic Professional Education

BROOKVILLE, N.Y.— Students across the country count on Colleges of Distinction as a one-of-a-kind resource to find the best-fit school. Part of what makes Colleges of Distinction unique is how it evaluates schools based on their ability to provide a high-quality student experience, as well as a thorough liberal arts education.

Already recognized by Colleges of Distinction for its innovative approach to education, LIU Post has been honored further for its expert blending of the liberal arts with professional programming in Business, Education, and Nursing.  The 21st-century job market demands employees who not only possess stellar communication skills, but demonstrate critical thinking as well.
