College Life Rating

FAU's number one thing that appeals to prospective students all around the world, is it's diversity and acceptance of diversity. Never have I been to a school with more culturally, ethnically, and personality differences, and where everyone is accepted. Of course there is the Greek Life aspect, but on top of that, there are groups for ethnic groups and the lesbian/gay population as well. Being that all types of people are accepted at FAU, it allows for FAU's students to feel comfortable on campus. When students feel accepted and comfortable in the place they are studying and living, it provides the student the ability to learn in a relaxed environment, and to have fun. FAU students can do all of this, all while staying safe and protected by FAU Police and staff/administrators.

College Life Rating

There are an abundance of activities to do and opportunities to meet many new people. With the amount of clubs there are to choose from, its so hard not to be in one and make new friends. The campus police are seen all around the campus as well as campus security. All along the campus there are emergency posts that you can go to if your in trouble. During the weekend, there are tons of activities all around.
