Most Helpful Review for Florida Atlantic University

This University has an extremely high academic level. Professors are dedicated, and provide their students with all necessary material for them to have a complete understanding of their subject. Many classes include discussions, or online sections, that are given in addition to the typical lesson, to allow students to completely comprehend all the information taught. Furthermore, numerous courses will also have specific tutoring classes, offered for free, to clarify any questions that students might develop throughout the semester.

    Florida Atlantic university has a great atmosphere and study environment. but i feel like the math and computer classes has a horrible guide in which students barely understand the course work. i believe a more intense class of either of these subjects as in separating semesters to discuss more information would be a great start.

    Florida Atlantic University provides a very small and focused work environment for students who enjoy a small town feel to their educational experience. While Administration can make certain processes difficult the community itself is very supportive. Lastly, the South Florida landscape is unbeatable as far as year round comfort.

    FAU is an extraordinarily unorganized university that will hopefully get its priorities straight under its new president. After attending this year, it feels less like a school aiming to help students learn and advance and more like a lazy business chasing the cheapest and easiest profit it can make. Other universities I have visited have many more resources for helping students and alumni succeed in their majors and career paths.

    FAU is a mainly a commuters school, but the campus is quite big and the people are friendly. We're 10 minutes from the beach and an hour from Miami. It's great. I love FAU and it's overall environment.

    Tall palm trees, clear blue skies, beautiful beaches and perfect weather - sounds like a vacation in paradise. Now imagine going to school there! Florida Atlantic University is not only ten minutes away from ocean paradise, but the whole FAU experience is a paradise in itself.

    I attended FAU for one term and discovered it wasn't the right place for me. The instructors seem indifferent to your success. Instead of focusing on my learning, they seemed more concerned with keeping me enrolled for tuition purposes.

    Florida Atlantic University is a fantastic commuter student opportunity. The professors are incredibly insightful and experienced. Make sure to travel in groups especially for night classes though.

    Florida Atlantic University is a great place to come f you don't want to be swept away by a big university but you don't want to know ever single student. It is a beautiful campus with the beach just three miles away. The residential housing is nice.
