What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
the campus itself is expansive and extremely beautiful. the classes are set in near perfect environments. setting up schedules and appointments for career development is incredibly easy.
It's a great school with small class sizes and personal interaction between students and professors is encouraged. There's also plenty of extracurricular activities and field trips to keep students occupied. The only downside is that the tuition is very steep!
Donovan from Maywood, NJ
The classes are small and your professors know who you are. You do not have teaching assistants for the class; only professors. There are many groups or activities for you to get involved and feel a part of the school.
Courtnee from Belle Vernon, PA
FDU is a great school and I absolutely love it here. Classes are within walking distance and my professors are always helpful. There are a decent amount of campus events going on all the time so it is easy to get involved!
