    Although FDU might be very expensive, it has a lot to offer. It is a very international school, therefore one can gain insight and perspective to many different cultures. It is recommended to do well on the SAT because the school provides scholarships based on how well one did.

    There are places to work on campus , you just have to ask around. You have to ask your department heads, or go to Career Services. Career Services can help you find a job on or near campus that pertains to your major, and even after graduating, you can go to them and they can help you find jobs.

    You will make your experience here at FDU. I have been given many great opportunities to attend United Nations forums and even meet the President of the United States - Barack Obama. It is all what you make it!

    Way too expensive.. Love the teachers but am thinking of transferring. Makes me sad but we can't afford it, (even with $24,000 in financial aid and 6000 in government loans per year)
