What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
FDU is challenging, but in all the right ways. Professors push their students to work their hardest. Professors set the bar high and allow students to work hard to reach this bar, and they will work with the students to help them excel. Although the materials for each course may be challenging, the professors work to simplify this material and deliver it in the most efficient way possible.

If a student is struggling, professors will work to help them understand the materials. In addition to help from each professor, the university provides free tutoring services. At the tutoring center, you are able to get help from a student who has done well in the class you are struggling with. What is nice about the tutoring center is that since the tutors are students, it is easier to form a connection with the tutor and not feel so out of place.

The professors challenge you because they care but the work is not difficult. Most professors are willing to help you during office hours, by appointment or even after class one on ones. However, keep in my mind that they will not baby you. They will help you if you need help, but if you show no concern for your grade, they will also show no concern.

Professors here are often very indulgent and lenient, but they will not allow you a free pass through a semester; for all of my classes, I've had to work relatively hard to maintain a good grade. Homework assignments are a big thing here, and you'll be given lots of them, but they will always be relevant to the class. If you wish to maintain a high GPA (like mine, which is currently at 3.77), you WILL have to focus and get the work done.
