Facilities: The diversity is one of the universities greatest attributes. Everyone around campus is always so friendly I feel right at home.

Computers: I have my own personal laptop I bring to class with me but it is not necessary. There are plenty of computers available on campus that are well maintained.

Local Atmosphere: Fairleigh Dickinson's campus is beautiful. One of my favorite things about the campus is that it is so culturally diverse; I interact and learn from a variety of people each and everyday.

Scholarships: I received several scholarships which aided me in my first few years of college. Living at home with my parents I have a hard time receiving financial aid. I have been forced to take out several student loans.

Overall Experience: I received my Associate Degree from Burlington County College before transferring to Fairleigh Dickinson University. My advisor was very helpful in making the transfer a smooth transition. Fairleigh Dickinson accepted all of my previous, which really benefited in obtaining my Bachelor Degree. I am now continuing my education at FDU in hopes to obtain a Master Degree in Elementary Education and become Special Education Certified.

Campus Dining: FDU will trick you into thinking that their school is gourmet and the best of the best. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Within the first two weeks of the semester, the food is decent and it's hard to complain. Eventually, it becomes worse and you could end up on the toilet for the next few days. The food never changes; once in a blue moon will there be something different worth trying. It's $8.75 per meal at the café. At 'Jeepers' the price varies on what you purchase and it's paid with flex dollars ($100 free each semester) Jeepers isn't any better than the main café but it's do-able.

Parking: Parking on campus is free. Close to dorms, although if you live in the upperclassman building, it is somewhat of a walk because the lot is so big. Ticketing and fines happen only if you do not have a permit for your car or a guest hasn't signed you in. Parking spots for the lindens is pretty sucky but you get use to it.

College Student

Greek Life: A lot of people are part of the Greek life and those who are non-Greek aren't viewed upon differently.

College Student

Diversity: Caucasians are the minorities on campus. 95% of the campus population is African American while the other 5% is divided into international students and other races. In a sense, the campus is diverse but it depends on who you are and who you're friends with. Religion isn't really spoken about on campus. There is a church on the property but I'm not around it enough to witness who attends and who doesn't. There are a lot of gay and lesbians on campus and our campus is very accepting.

Guys & Girls: The individuals on campus are extremely difficult to talk to because no one makes time for you. 95% of the campus is African American therefore, if you're white--you barely stand a chance. There are quite a few activities on campus that are appealing but they get booked really quick.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There aren't many options and when you do find one you're looking for, it's either too expensive or too far. A lot of road maintenance takes place around campus too so commuters have the worst time trying to get into campus. How someone views the safety around campus can depend on the individual. Parking on campus is free so that's a bonus but off campus parking is usually on the street because many apartments don't have driveways.

1 College Student

Transportation: Without a car, you're basically stranded. There is a strip mall (if that's what you'd call it) in walking distance but it doesn't have many options. Cars are super important and if you don't have one, you're basically SOL.

Drug Safety: No one ever puts pressure on taking alcohol or drugs. Students are free to do as they please. Not on campus but it does happen. Students have gotten into trouble for doing so. Public safety is on it!

Campus Housing: Most of the people I met, my friends are because I lived on campus. I am grateful for doing so. It is expensive and not worth the money because not everything is perfect. The atmosphere is ideal to start off with.

Majors: I didnt get help in finding the job. The career development center needs to improve their standards and how they help students. None of them could help me atleast. I basically applied on my own and managed to find a great job.

International student services helped with the paperwork but no one knew how to get about doing things for international students which I thought was frustrating.

Majors: Psychology was the best decision i made and i am happy to be at FDU studying the field that I am able to get personal help with and meet real professionals who are currently holding jobs.
