Fairleigh Dickinson University Reviews
I attend Fairleigh Dickinson through the community partnership program, meaning I taking courses that are accredited by Fairleigh Dickinson but take them at my local community college. Fairleigh Dickinson provides me absolutely no resources other than what is online and has never once mentioned me or my classmates in any way, shape, or form. I feel absolutely zero connection or loyalty to the university.
My school has provided me with the tool and life goal to push harder in life. While I go into my senior year I will miss my school and I try to better myself in the work field. Fairleigh has help my become a better engineer and they made sure I had the tools and knowledge to take my life to the next level. I join many clubs like national society of black engineers and made many friends I hope to keep them close as we leave to make a new chapter in our lives
Beautiful and quiet campus! I love the environment and the wonderful students and professors! By far my favorite college with great academics.
The metropolitan campus is not the best looking campus that fdu has to offer but none the less the classes and teachers are above average. This school allows for students to have a personal life and to learn everything that they need for there future carears. The workload is perfect as long as a student is willing to put in about 2 hours of studying each day then they should have no issue getting good grades.
The school is okay. It's very small so you basically know and see the same people around. However, the environment and organization of the school needs some improvement.
I am a transfer senior. I dorm a few nights a week and go home on the weekends. Ill be honest. The food is fine, people are nice and academics are GREAT. However, this is a small school and the ugly stepchild compared to Florham. The Greek life isnt real greek life either compared to big colleges. Its a dry campus with no greek houses on campus so do the math. If you want a real college partying experience and greek life experience go elsewhere. This is a good academic school, not much else. It feel like a community college people sleep at.
My experience as a Freshman at Fairleigh Dickinson University has been very positive. The professors are knowledgeable and approachable. The campus is very nice and the students are friendly.
Fairleigh Dickinson is a great college offering students immense opportunities to help them in any field of study. Overall, the college is a great pick and nothing bad could be said about it!
Fairleigh Dickinson University was absolutely amazing. When I was there it felt just like home. What I love about it the most is how it is almost like city life. There are so many things you could do at Fairleigh Dickinson University and several trips into the city. There is not a single thing I would change about Fairleigh Dickinson University.
FDU is a really small school compared to other schools. It is located in the suburbs of New York City which is appealing to many students. Personally, I think this is not a school that would involve socializing and partying. There are very few girls in the schools and very few people in general. I would recommend dorming because it's easier to make friends and interact with people. There are no bars and no night clubs around, so you would have to travel a couple miles to find a place to hangout.
Great professors and great people. Small campus with large commuter population, so it gets very quite and boring on the weekends and at night. Not lots of school spirit either.
I am currently a student at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ. FDU is an open campus however, it is in a very safe area. The academics at the university are very good. The school is a leader in global education and offers many opportunities for students to study abroad almost anywhere in the world, including their Vancouver and Wroxton campuses. My time at FDU has been characterized by me meeting students form all over the world. FDU is pretty small with only about 600 people living on campus and a good amount of students commuting. The dorms aren't like what you see in the movies, but they're not your worst nightmare either. There is one that stands out from the other two choices. Because of its small size, students at FDU form a close knit community, especially the ones that choose to live on campus. There are not many parties at the school, but there is always something going on, or an event hosted by one of them many organizations present at the school.
I transferred in this fall, and my first semester has been great! If you get involved on campus right away there are a lot of opportunities available. It's a little bit on the expensive side, but other than that I love everything about this school.
So far my experience has been interesting. It is a dry campus, which may make it more safe, but less fun for some. This school is mostly a commuter school. We only have one cafeteria that accepts meal swipes which can be a hassle, especially for those whom live in the upperclassmen dorms.
Fairleigh Dickinson as a whole is a pretty decent school. I love the sports this school offers and also the Greek Life. Some things i would like to see changed is a more diverse selection of food and more student activities. I also would like there to be a greater selection of clubs to join.
While attending Fairleigh Dickinson University, I have experienced the ups and downs of being at college. The work load can be a little heavy plus scheduling classes is rough. However, I have also had the pleasure of meeting some great professors. While challenging, classes are fun and informative. The campus is very big so you get a lot of exercise walking to and from classes.
As a senior I have never experienced or seen anyone get peer pressured in doing anything they do not want to do.
Overall, the people are easy to talk to and fun to hang out with, as well as, find a club/organization that fits your personality and/or major.
We are aware of where to go in case of any sexual assault. I have never heard of any sexual assaults since I have been attending this school.
The application process is not too much of a hassle. Although, financial aid office people may give off an attitude.
