Overall Rating

Overall, as a student of Florida Atlantic University I have been able to witness how diverse the school's community is. Not only culturally and ethnically, but educationally as well. FAU offers many varying majors/minors, and classes over all for student to enroll in.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

I like the main campus the most. There is more to do there than any of the other campuses. My least favorite campus is the one in Fort Lauderdale, because it is not in a safe place and it is dirty. The library at the main campus is a great size and there are so many different resources to help with your studies. It is so easy to make memorable experiences with your friends and even new friends.
