5. Some of the First Classes at LIU Post Were Taught in Stables and Garages

LIU Post’s classrooms were not always the most decadent. During the early days of LIU, when nothing had been constructed yet, the Post mansion was the only building the university owned.

While this was certainly nice, it wasn’t enough to house and teach the 219 students that attended the school. WWII had just ended when the campus was founded and a new GI bill made college attendance more feasible; thus, there were a lot of students and not a lot of classrooms or facilities. The only solution to this problem was to stick those students in converted stables and garages and have them learn out there.
