    I enjoy attending Felician University because as a nursing major, I believe they have a lot of the tools I am looking for to succeed. They have lots of connections to hospitals for the future and working opportunities. I made friends easily within the first week or so being in the dorms. The friendships I made are bound to be there for a long time as well. I found it easier to make friends within my major, and it benefited me when it came to study groups and led me to better scores.

    My experience at Felician University has been great. Professors are helpful and make the classes interesting. There are many resources to help you if you are struggling in class. Everyone is welcoming and guide you into making the correct choices!
    My online experience has been a little difficult to say the least. Not being able to be sitting in certain classes has affected my overall performance in school. I am trying to do my absolute best by studying whenever I get the chance to, but actually being in the class setting is what fuels me to perform better. Even though that won't happen for a period of time, I will continue to strive and do better academics wisel.
