3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From my expierence, when there are adjuncts my experience is terrible because they are under-qualified. But our normal professors are experts in their fields and will do their best to make sure you understand the material.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't really expierienced the effects of being an alumni of FAU considering I'm only a sophomore so this isn't applicable to me.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a campus police department on campus 24/7 and the health facilities are very helpful.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing over the summer is the worst. They close down the dining hall and it's against rules to cook so you must fend for your self. During the regular school year you have the sub par dining hall food. There were mushrooms growing in the stairwell in the Jupiter campus dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The FAU Boca campus has a very nice facility. But, the FAU Honors college has no such facility and must use Golds gym.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At the FAU Honors college there are many hardworking individuals with a great work ethic and the students are always willing to help each other towards success.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is unique in the way it is so very diverse! Anywhere you go on campus there is always something new and exciting happening and it never just involves one "group" or "color", it is the most diverse in the state of Florida and it allows us all to collect and feel more worldly together as one and understand each other much easier than other school who have to study it! We actually have the diversity on our campus!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

For most students, FAU was not their first-choice school. While it is a large school, most students are commuters, and it seems as though almost anyone can be accepted. However, once students arrive on campus, they realize that there are many activities and events to get involved with and that maybe their experience will not be so bad after all.

FAU is an up-and-coming school and is growing in students and facilities every year. However, most students do not plan to attend for their entire college career. Many are just using FAU to get their feet on the ground and to get general education classes out of the way. A huge percent of the student population transfers after two years to a larger, more college-town type of school.
