Helping Students Achieve Their Goals for More Than 100 Years


A lot has changed since Post was founded in 1890. Then, our classrooms were filled with typewriters. Today, our classrooms are filled with laptop computers and smartphones, and reach far beyond our traditional campus -- to airplane seats and kitchen tables, living room sofas and home offices.

Our ability to adapt and change is driven by one thing: our students. That’s why, when students wanted more flexible learning options, we became a pioneer in online and hybrid education. Today, we offer high quality education and exceptional student support services -- on our New England campus, during evenings and weekends, and in a fully online format.

When it became clear that in order to compete in today’s world students needed to step out of the text and into the real world, we gathered together a group of scholar-practitioners with advanced degrees and years of real-world experience, so our students learn from true experts in their fields. We also expanded our Career Services office, and even added a career and self-awareness program to help our undergraduate students learn more about themselves and the careers available to them. When our traditional college students demanded an even richer on-campus experience, we added new student activities and athletic programs, renovated our residence halls, and created an even more welcoming home away from home in the hills of Waterbury, Connecticut.

Whether you choose to attend our Waterbury campus, or enroll in an undergraduate or graduate accelerated degree program through the Online Education Institute of Post University, we’ll be here to help you achieve your goals.
