A Finance Major with two minors in Wealth Management and Accounting in the Silberman College at FDU. My advisors, professors, and coaches helped me balance being a full-time student, member of the Conference Champions of the Women's Lacrosse Team, a member of the Student Athletic Committee, and still having fun times with friends. There are many abroad options like a quick summer course at the campus in Wroxton, England or in Vancouver, Canada. The food has gotten better over the years, Omlette Lady is the BEST! Housing isn't great after freshman year, but live with some friends of campus and it could be great.

Professors are lovely and the campus is beautiful. However, the administrative staff have terrible attitudes and the food sucks. Overall good school though!
