Florida Atlantic University Reviews
Review Florida Atlantic University
I attended as dual enrollment during high school- which means you have to go in evening (adjunct professors who teach entry level evening classes are a mixed bag). One class was exciting and well taught whereas the other the teacher informed us he would rather not be there, and was extremely sarcastic and rude to anyone who asked a question. I have heard they are working to improve their undergraduate programs, but as of now it is still pretty much a commuter college that needs to keep improving!
I currently attend Florida Atlantic University and I must say it is a big surprise from what I expected! The school is very diverse and there is always something to do meaning beer is always clubs, activities and even games that you can attend. The academics are good overall but just says all schools you should be Setting out extra time in order to study and to be focused and figure out what exactly that you want to do because I know a lot of kids in college have an idea at first but then decide on switching maybe after the second year. There is always upperclassman who can help guide you in terms of degrees and their experience with the type of professors here. Overall, it's a great school to attend I'm glad I came.
I'm only a freshman at FAU, but overall, from what I've seen, I'd say it's a pretty good school. Most of the professors care about the students and try their best to help us. There are also plenty of clubs and organizations, including Greek life, available on campus for students to join! When it comes to sports, they're not so great in that department lol but hopefully they get better! Campus food isn't bad, but I wish we had more restaurant options. Like I said, it's an overall good school and anyone who goes there is sure to get a good education if they put in the work.
