I was a transfer student and i was instantly impressed by how close the students were. Everyone was very supportive of the athletics and the small classes made learning easier.

My campus is very small, to me. I am still getting used to the environment, but so far I have met only a few, down to earth, honest humans in the last 3 years. They add to the fun times we share. Some of the professors I've had were either super awesome, or very horrible; however, I still learned from them all.

Fairleigh Dickinson is a really great school that make you feel part of something important. It basically feels like my second home. The professors and other students there are really nice to one another. It's overall a great environment to get a good education.
