3 College Freshman

Academics: The advisors are pretty good, but if you're last in the lottery for classes it sucks. Workload varies, but no matter what the tests are hard, and midterms and finals require pulling out all the stops.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Its mostly wealthy white kids and then some white and ethnic kids with less money

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are only a few good buildings to live in, the rest of them a kind of outdated.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have a lot of choices thanks to being so close to Morristown and Madison.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If the campus police catch you, you will get written up but the punishments vary.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: a lot of opportunities to rush and pledge, and everyone pretty much gets along

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The area around FDU is super expensive, so it's hard to find affordable housing.

2 College Freshman

Computers: The WiFi on campus is terrible, and the labs are usually packed, bring a laptop!

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttle comes at pretty convenient times but you're on your own at night.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are usually non-alcoholic events on the weekends

3 College Junior

Diversity: People seem to be very open on this campus about diversity, but than you have your few who are just ignorant, and it truly is sad in this day and age.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I was robbed my Freshman year, my dorm was broken into, so it was not the best experience, but for the most part, FDU is a safe school.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: I am not a huge fan of the cafe most of the time, but leaf and grains is awesome.

2 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Unless you're in greek life, there is not much going on, on campus.

5 College Junior

Athletics: We have great sports teams, especially our Girls Basketball who are NCAA Champions

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus, but I hear off campus it can be annoying especially with weather, neighbors not liking college students around, and distance.

4 College Freshman

Majors: a lot of majors to chose from

The experience at the College at Florham will be different for every person. Most students choose to join Greek life or a sports team, which combined take up a majority of students' lives. Many students who do not choose either of these routes become heavily involved with clubs and organizations. Many students enjoy their time at Fairleigh Dickinson because they are able to gain friendships that will last a lifetime; however, there is a large number of students who, if given the choice, would not choose to attend the College at Florham again. Aside from these students, other students are amazed by the beautiful campus grounds, and the tour guides and staff do everything they can to get more students to attend.

Once you become a student at Fairleigh Dickinson, you see how the staff hides that everyone goes home on the weekends, and that there are not many campus events for students to attend. The classes at Fairleigh Dickinson are not as difficult as they could be, but with all of the different major offerings, students are able to make their own path once they graduate college. The College at Florham does not do the greatest job of preparing students for the real world; instead, the College leaves it up to students to go out and make their own mistakes and learn from them. The Career Development Center is a great help to students who are looking for careers and jobs after graduating, and the staff will help with everything from resume building to interview preparation.
