What I love about Fairleigh Dickinson are the renovations that are being made. Since the day I came to visit, I was skeptical about how the campus would look because it reminded me of a construction zone. Now, the renovations make the campus look even more amazing, and they're continuing to make renovations to make the campus look great. What makes the campus even better is the school spirit. Our basketball team won our conference championship and made it to the first round of the NCAA championship which raised our school spirit up to the roof! The students and staff at Fairleigh Dickinson get along very well, and the professors always make sure that their students understand the material to the point where they can answer any question like they have known it off of the back of their hand. So far, my overall experience at Fairleigh Dickinson has been great, and I am looking forward to the next few years here!

My experience in online classes wasn't bad but I personally feel more comfortable with taking courses in class than online. I feel as if there is more interaction with the professors and students. In my home there is too much distractions. But the professors give their all in teaching their class, especially during a pandemic!
The opportunities to study abroad are numerous which I took advantage of. The advisor for the Two Worlds program helped me transition from high school to college life every step of the way as well as involving my parents and easing their concerns. BUT! She got fired for a legal issue and her replacements haven't matched the bar she set. The advising of those after have been spotty and unreliable.
As for the professors they are really approachable and insightful, clear and concise. They are generally available for one on one meetings for any questions or concerns you might have.
Commuting to this school very easy to do as many buses run their route to accommodate the students here; It is located 30 minutes away from the city. Many events are always happening too. Intervarsity and Nubian ladies events are my favorite to attend. Also, the free stuff different groups and guests give from time to time are cool.
