I had a great first year at Fairleigh Dickinson so far! There are plenty of clubs and events on campus, so it is easy to get involved. The small campus also gives the university a very at-home and friendly atmosphere. I would definitely choose FDU again because of all the great relationships I have made with students and faculty, and the great educational programs the school has to offer.

For a D3 school, we have some very talented athletes and successful teams. The stands at each and every home game are always filled and students, faculty, staff and alums are genuinely happy to be there! There are often buses to bring students to championship games that are out of state.The weight room, gym and locker rooms are very nice and open for any students to use, athlete or not. Intramurals are very popular among the students and many people get involved.

FDU provides many great opportunities and networks for internships and jobs. When it is time for academic advising, students meet with teachers and chairs of the departments in their specific major. These teachers and faculty members not only work at the university, but are at the top of their fields and have careers in their subjects outside of Fairleigh Dickinson. They are aware of job and internship opportunities nearby and also send out emails to all the students in that majors' department when new jobs arise. Every month or so, we also have career days and different networking events to meet with alumni and different businesses nearby. FDU is also in a prime location to search for jobs and internships because there are many businesses, hospitals, and offices in Madison and the surrounding towns that can meet the needs for any student.
