After Florida Atlantic University

FAU is one of the most diverse schools in the nation, both in terms of ethnicity and age. Diversity and strength in culture among its students, the wide range of opportunities it gives through the many advantages it presents to my peers. Being 1.8 miles from the beach and near-constant sunny days means every weekend is a potential beach weekend. They should expect a first rate education from professors who are passionate about the students they teach.
