browse opening Brookville, N.Y. (Dec. 8, 2014) - LIU announces the opening of its new, innovative technology store, Browse, with locations on the Post and Brooklyn campuses. Browse is the university’s latest venture in a series of offerings designed to provide students with unique, real-world learning opportunities that prepare them to enter into the 21st-century global market with executive-level experience that employers are seeking.

LIU students play an important role in the store’s day-to-day operations, alongside technology retail professionals, and are offered hands-on experiences on concepts such as inventory management, retail customer services, and business management skills, enabling students to cultivate their work experience while studying at LIU. Browse offers a selection of popular technology brands and products, from tablets and notebooks to all-in-one desktop computers and gaming consoles, as well as accessories. Students will benefit from the IT help desk, which they can use as a resource for technological needs and questions. In addition, students working in the store will gain expertise as they work alongside certified Apple service help desk technicians.

LIU continues to create unique and wide-ranging opportunities for students to help them prepare for their careers. Other experiential learning opportunities at LIU include student-run businesses, such as:

PR and Marketing Agency: A full-service agency managed by students.

  • Student Innovation Incubator: A physical and virtual workspace for students to launch startup businesses and collaborate with successful entrepreneurs.
  • The Student Body Boutique: A trendy clothing boutique that sells the latest fashions at affordable prices.
  • Art Gallery Shop: A sophisticated gallery where students can showcase and sell original artwork.

“Having an authorized Apple Campus Store on campus provides an invaluable resource for LIU students,” said Dr. Kimberly R. Cline, president of LIU. “As a leader in experiential learning, LIU is committed to providing our students with hands-on opportunities like this venture.”

“We are living in a dynamic, digital world, and it’s essential that we prepare our students for the 21st-century global marketplace,” said George Baroudi, vice president for information technology and chief information officer of LIU. “Browse provides LIU students with a real-world technology environment where they will acquire technical and interactive skills that will serve them as they move on in chosen careers or graduate studies."

Starting in spring 2015, Browse will host complimentary workshops on specific technology-related topics for the LIU community.
