1 College Junior

Greek Life: Practically non existent, the most boring place ever.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The food is terrible, unless you like eating unhealthy, processed, unknown, "food", then it's "delicious".

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is a secret Greek life, its nothing big.

4 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Weather: Couldn't ask for better weather, but F the snow in the A

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are good looking people around, friends are a result of attractiveness

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Need a high tolerance level for dealing with rich kids

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Wish we could live off campus before senior year, what are they worried about?

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: A greek life would be fun

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There's been alot of news about sexual assault lately, it doesn't scare me but I dont like seeing it publicized

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: There really isn't any diversity, this is mostly a Caucasian school

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: hit or miss with things. Depends when and who's involved, but generally not bad.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing varies. Freshmen year housing is okay. Sophomore year the housing is what you want: either crappy suites with parties or residential colleges that require retreats but are the nicer buildings. Junior year: Townhouses (outdated and hit or miss with quality but best party spot) or apartments (super nice but isolated from rest of junior class) Senior year: BEACH basically the whole reason you came to FU

3 College Freshman

Computers: Wifi is terrible and technology is less than stellar in classrooms, but there are always open computers in library.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Beach is awesome, but residents can be testy.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: You're fine if you're a girl, but best to know people.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Stag bus drivers are the best, just annoying you have to wait 45 minutes for the next one. Taxis are fine if you use the right ones.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Super safe campus and the health center is so accessible.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletes seem to get a lot of perks. Club sports might as well be intramurals because everything is left on the students to plan. No real sense of school spirit. Building a new lacrosse stadium.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: If you like laxatives in your food enjoy!

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Many teachers still use chalk boards, they have almost no technology in the class rooms.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's pretty bad. There's no air conditioning, the bathroom are filthy, the study lounge in the oldest buildings include broken tables and chairs, and the housing process sucks if you don't get a good pick.
