Florida Atlantic University Reviews
Florida Atlantic is a great school! This school is growing achievement in the city of Boca Raton and for the State of Florida. They focus on their students academic and career opportunities. FAU is a growing school that is succeeding in many areas. Each year its progressing! Athletics are presenting positive results and incoming students qualifications are going up! FAU programs such as Business, Pre-Med, Education, Exercise Science and many more are growing to be #1. FAU provides certain opportunities that other school don't which gives our students an advantage for the real world and to be successful!
Florida Atlantic University was a great school! I learned a lot from the professors here and they are very eager to assist their students. Some programs, like mine, even offer internship opportunities, which will help them get a job in the future. However, if you want a "college experience" (meaning dorm life, greek life, etc) I would not suggest FAU as it is mostly a commuters college and most of the students just come here to take classes.
FAU really exceeded my expectations. I came to FAU as an international student on an athletic scholarship, and was planning on going to school there for a year then move on to a top university once I would be all cleared by the NCAA and admission process. Little did I know that I would find the perfect fit for me and my professional career. My theory about college in the US is that you will broadly learn as much during your undergrad anywhere you go but the connections you make will be the difference. Going to school in south Florida gave me so many opportunities and I got my dream job right out of school as an analyst even though I was competing against top tier candidates. Being a big fish in a small pond can be very rewarding too!
