What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
Don't let the price scare you away, like I almost did. Apply and see what they'll give you, it's worth it! They gave me more money than any other school, and if you apply at one of the information session and tours, the application fee is waived, so you have nothing to lose!
Student from FDU
It’s an extremely expensive college BUT they offer a lot of scholarship money like no other college does. They are able to do this because so many of the alumni generously donate. FDU is really a tight knit small community. Also, REMEMBER, one of the most important things about starting college is that you start off on a clean slate. You have the ability to do better than you did in high school (for those of you who didn't do as well as you'd liked, like me). So be positive and use your time wisely! The Freshman Seminar course you take when you first begin at FDU is designed to help you make the transition from high school to college. Take advantage of it. Take advantage of any help you need. FDU has a career center for those looking for a job in a career choice relevant to their major, it has a tutoring center, plenty of computers to do your internet work, a library with extended hours, and several eating spots other than the cafeteria (a Nathan’s is right on campus). Café food is better than the food many other colleges offer in the area! Take advantage of all this good stuff. Time management will be of major importance in college. Another important thing, get involved! I know that sounds over said but this is how you meet people, friends. There are plenty of Clubs on campus and growing. You can start your own club as long as you have a few people rounded up ?. Really take time to form relationships with your professors because number 1, they are there to help you succeed to the best of your ability and two, they’ll be the people looking out for you when you need a recommendation for a future job!
FDU is a great fun school, you will learn a lot, and have a great time. Definately visit the school for a real feel.

If you have any questions look on facebook for people who go to your school so you can find out what it is really like.
Kristine from New Rochelle, NY
buy all your books from amazon. grubhub is your best friend for all- nighters. the library is more useful than you'd think.
You'd better be ready to shell out a lot of money and give it your all once you're in. That's the best advice I can give. Fortunately, the tutoring center is free of charge, so don't hesitate to go there when you need help, and even if you DON'T think you need it. One last thing: because the campus is small, you'll be seeing the same people a lot. Be nice to them, since it will be for your own good.
Donovan from Maywood, NJ
Apply early as it is a very well-known school.
Courtnee from Belle Vernon, PA
Although the price may scare you away, they are great at giving major scholarships!
Melissa from Old Bridge, NJ
Get involved, don't be shy. You have to be able to get out of your room and walk around once in a while. Talk to some people and make friends. That's the fun part about it.
