Andy from Coconut Creek, FL
This school is a perfect environment for learning as well as keeping in touch with others. This campus is endowed with many fun activities you can get involved in, as well as sororities and fraternities. Fau just built a state-of-the-art football stadium where you can cheer your fellow owls to victory.
