Excellent small school for those looking to stay in a cozy campus with wonderful teachers and activities. Campus life really cares about the students, public safety does a really good job helping out, and the professors really know their stuff- just make sure you learn how to cook during cafeteria off-days!
Review Fairleigh Dickinson University - College at Florham
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.
I love the size of FDU. After going to a large high school, FDU was a fresh start for me. The small class sizes make the lectures very personal, giving students extra opportunities for office hours with the professor if needed. There are free tutors available in the Academic Support Center in which students can schedule sessions online when convenient for them. Greek life is huge on campus, so there is always philanthropic opportunities daily. There are many clubs and organizations as well, so plenty of opportunity to get involved.
