LIU Post (C.W.)

LIU Post (formerly, and still formally known as the C.W. Post) is a private college in Brookville in Nassau County, New York, United States. It is the largest campus of the private Long Island University system.

The campus is named after breakfast cereal inventor Charles William Post, father of Marjorie Merriweather Post, who sold the property (which had been her Long Island estate known as Hillwood) to LIU in 1951 for $200,000 ($1,885,641 today). Three years after it acquired the property, LIU renamed it C.W. Post College in honor of Post’s father.
