5 College Junior

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.

Local Atmosphere: My school is located in Hackensack/Teaneck, Nj. I personally think its beautiful and peaceful there. There is a mall nearby and a lot of clubs you can join and a lot of different place to eat and enjoy a good time with friends.

Local Atmosphere: It's alright. There's the town of Teaneck and Hackensack, and if you look for things to do, you'll be able to find them. There's always public transportation to take you into NYC and over to the Garden State Mall. You just have to look for things to do, because as is life, no one will hand you what you want.

Local Atmosphere: This school is low key and very much under the radar. I drove pass the Teaneck campus for twenty years and hardly noticed it. Not till I enrolled last year did I realize that like most other Universities, it had much to offer. I just visited the Wroxton campus for a dose of British culture. I did not travel with the school. I went on a vacation and had to ask for permission to enter the building. It was granted, and I was happy to take a brief tour, and have my picture taken with the armour I had only seen in pictures. Wroxton is close to the nice little town of Banbury. This is where I visited the 500 yr old St.Mary's Cathedral and read a plaque dedicated to the author of "Gulliver's Travels" out in the church yard. Apparently, Mr. Swift wrote this time enduring story where I was standing. I read that book as a child and never forgot it. Oxford was 20 miles away; London was 90 mins away. For both the US and UK campuses, fun and entertainment is never too far away, and locals are nice and friendly enough. Must have cash for a very good time; both areas are expensive for students on a budget. A student discount with student ID should be inplace in the local communities. Students might be inclined to spend more than we already do if we can see some savings when our ID is presented! How about it FDU? Can you do that for us?
