3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The Lindens are nice. They are close to the SUB (cafe) and most of the buildings where classes are. Northpointe is probably the newest and the nicest, but it is the most expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek housing. Greeks are around but they do not play a role on campus really. There is no pressure to join Greek life here.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: FDU is a D-1 school so there is some emphasis on sports here, but it's not much. The only time people really ever get excited is when the men's basketball team is doing well.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: FDU is what you make of it. The academics are probably the best thing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My advisor and teachers are great. I feel that they car about my education.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't participate in the sports selection because I do not stay on campus. I am a adult learner and I have a full time job in the private sector and motherhood. I have been in a gym once and it seemed to be state of the art.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I like my major classes. Hate mandatory core and electives. The curriculum for science majors is harder than most schools. Registration is annoying if you dont have enough credits and a class gets full before it is your turn to register. Workload gets tough at times. The "commuter lounge" and dickinson hall are the worst places to study. The library is full of loud students but is more tolerable.

Health & Safety: I have never experienced a crime on campus first hand. However, i do wish that there were locked doors or that you have to swipe an ID to get inside buildings. Anyone can walk into any building except the library and that feels unsafe.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Speaking from a chemistry major pov, my professors were very nice and very into their subjects. I enjoyed their classes. I hated having to take core classes and english classes, made it feel like high school. All my professors knew my name, they did not have TAs but have graders. Class sizes are small except for major lectures like general chemistry and biology, but even then my professors knew me by name.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I could go back I would start at community college first and then transfer. The education, at least in the first 2 years, was average and couks have been had anywhere else. The administration here is awful. The secretaries and administrators treat students like they are subhuman or something. I have never been treated fairly by these people. The professors are fine but I feel like my education is overpriced.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: Personally, I never felt very safe walking across campus alone at night. I've known people who were sexually assaulted on campus. Once there was an armed robbery on the bridge or something? One time I lost my wallet and when I went to Public Safety a few days later, they said no one had turned one in. When I went again a few days later someone had turned it in and I don't think anything was missing from the wallet, so that was cool. There are security cars who will transport you back and forth but I've only ever seen people who were injured use them.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: Classes are okay. Some professors care, some don't. Administration sucks, especially if you don't know what you're doing/are a first gen student.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There's career fairs and a career development center. I've never really gone to either.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The Lindens are the average college housing experiences. Sometimes you can have rowdy suitemates who like to throw parties while you and your roommate lock yourselves into your room. This can lead to lack of sleep and very full bladders. RAs, in my experience, don't really do much. They'll come in and say, "Hey, keep it down," without any real threat behind it. Also they don't really care if you have alcohol even though it's a dry campus. Thermostat fights with your suitemates are also common. The Lindens are convenient because they're right next to the Student Union Building, where the main dining hall is. They're also relatively close to the classrooms on the Teaneck side of campus. The classes on the Hackensack side are a bit of a walk. Occasionally, sororities/fraternities hold rallies or something in the middle of the night? But I'm usually up at 2 am anyway because I'm a masochist so it's not really a big deal for me. Northpointe is very nice. What first comes to mind is the relief of walking in to the beautifully temperature controlled buildings after the long walk back from lunch at the SUB in August. While rooms are more spacious than the Lindens and you don't have to worry about suitemates, it's a far walk to the SUB. It's pretty close to Jeepers but you have to pay/use flex money there.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: A couple of my friends are members of Greek life and it's very important to them. So if you're into that sort of thing, it's available for you. I'm indifferent to Greek life and the parties they throw so I've been unaffected by them.

3 College Senior

Athletics: As someone who cares very little about sports, I did a good job of avoiding anything relating to the sport teams.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The classes aren't too horrible, but the administration is all over the place. It's impossible to find answers or get anything done. I also feel that they should not offer my major (marine biology) because there are very few classes offered that relate to marine biology. Most of them are only available through a mandatory semester abroad in the Dominican Republic. If you are interested in marine bio, go elsewhere. If you are the first person in your family going to school, go elsewhere because you will drown in the disorganized and chaotic administration.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: there are very minimal to no crimes on campus. campus police are always around, sometimes a bit too often

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a biology major, the classes are really good. Although some professors are irrational when it comes to what they choose to teach, it is an overall good biology program

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is known for many of its programs, one of the best being programs being biology. so a degree from this school is a great opportunity in terms of career prospects and jobs/internships

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The other students who live in the building are fun to be around. the rooms are bland. bathrooms are mostly old and broken down

4 College Junior

Diversity: It's very diverse everyone is all different in ways and have no problems with it just learn from each other

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of all my classes are small and professors I had were good as well

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Student career can be a bit hard on you depending. But overall help out much as possible

4 College Junior
