Making the educational experience for the whole family – students and parents!

Sending your kids off to school might be one of the most bittersweet moments of your life. When your child chooses Post, you can rest assured knowing that they are getting an education that will help them grow and succeed throughout their college career and for the rest of their adult lives.

Your child’s safety is our number one priority. The Office of Campus Safety and Emergency Management works closely with every department and student group to ensure campus safety.

Mental Health and Wellness Services

Located on the first floor of the Leever Student Center, our Mental Health and Wellness Services offers a safe place where your child can speak with a trained professional about anything academic or otherwise to help them gain insight or make a positive change.

Clubs & Organizations

More than half of our main campus students participate in at least one club – and there are over 20 campus clubs to choose from. It is an easy way for your child to meet new friends and have fun outside of the classroom.
