4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far I've liked almost all my classes and felt that they'll be useful in my career. The campus is gorgeous, and while people complain about "too much walking" there are bigger campuses with way more walking.

Overall Experience: It's incredibly boring and it's entirely like high school. I wish I could go back and consider a larger school as well. They like to brag about how close to New York they are. Most people here hate the city, because they only like sports, and the train takes an hour and is $11 one way. The cafeteria is alright but still has unreasonable hours. Many, if not, most people go home a majority of weekends, leaving out-of-state residents lonely and bored.

While my major has amazing professors, the students in the major, and all other students for that matter, make it difficult to learn, because they are catty and rude. I came from a small city in the Midwest hoping to find a more progressive area in the Northeast. You definitely have to be much closer to New York for that to happen. I hear gay slurs more often than I'd like and it's rather segregated here. Unless you're in greek life, you can't make your way socially here.

Please save your time and money, and don't apply here, especially anyone from out-of-state. For the price-tag of this school, you certainly deserve more.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm excited to see what FDU has in store for me.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the university i chose because of it's diversity and variety of education that they've offered me. The professors and students are so outgoing.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Honestly, I am very happy with my choice to come to FDU, but for personal reasons I wish I had chosen a different school or made some other choices. I changed my major in my sophomore year to something that I really love and wanted to do during my freshman year, but I was afraid of the work it would take. I ended up switching anyway, and now I am two years behind, which is bad for me because all of my friends will be graduating this year and I will be stuck for at least another year after they are gone. I only really wish I picked a different school because this is so damn expensive. There's no way that it should cost as much as it does for the quality of education we receive. Financial aid does help, and the people who work in the office are nice and help you out a bit (MUCH more than enrollment services; I despise them; they don't care about you at all and they make mistakes all the time and don't help you out at all; all they care about is the money; they're lucky they don't have to worry about it), but my family's financial situation is very bad and has worsened over the years and I still don't receive the help that I need and have to pay out of pocket, which is no longer an option for me.

Overall Experience: The campus is really nice, and all the teachers I have had were really great people. Some teachers talk too much and some have weird accents, and some just don"t know how to teach that well, but that's every school. The school is pretty small, I'm used to a big school so it's a bit can get really clique-y because of that. The people are overall nice...

Athletics: The gym on campus is nice, but they could have a bigger weight room.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is pretty expensive around here so it keeps most students either living at home or on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I can always get something tasty when i am craving it.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Everything is fine just as long as students are respectful of others and of the environment.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was happy with the whole process and everything went smoothly for me.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: It basically tastes like jail food and is not worth the money we are paying. Everything is processed and unhealthy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is ok for the cost. They could really do more renovations in the freshman dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are good but the classrooms and labs are very poor especially because of how much the cost of this school is.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I do not feel completely unsafe but I could feel safer.

Off-Campus Dining: If a student can get to Morristown, all the restaurants that an individual wants to try out are there.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: As a commuter, I do not get to see the actually restrictions that a student that dorms has.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: A student has to do a lot of steps in order to receive the financial aid that one needs, but it is achievable.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of student discounts offered to students.

3 College Freshman

Administration: If you respect public safety and don't give them a problem, then you won't have a problem. There are random searches in the dorms for alcohol and drugs out.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: If you want to attend this school, you basically need financial aid. The whole process is annoying to deal with because if one thing gets screwed up in the process, you won't get any money.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
