What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Wherever you come from, live on campus your first year. I didn't have the advantage of living in the dorms as I transferred as a junior.
Be friends with upperclassmen. Trust me. There is nothing to do for the U21 scene - except house parties, and those get old. A lot of clubs are 21+, and they're good at spotting fakes.
Talk to EVERYONE in your class, the freshmen, the seniors, and the older students. I wish I hadn't been so shy my first year, it would be a lot easier for me to network now if I had been more outgoing.
Greek life rules! Get involved. It's a very long but rewarding process and even if you don't think Greek is for you, at least go to the info session. You might be surprised

be responsible, be punctual, be driven, be open, be a scholar, be organized, be ready to have wonderful college experiences, be ready to stay up to study for test, be ready to be more mature, be ready to become a owl...good luck!
T from Fort Lauderdale, FL
Just be ready to work and stay focused. Get involved in the different things on campus and also focus and get your work done. If you are doing the summer session, you really want to be focused because you do a lot in a short amount of time and if you miss one class, it is just like missing a week. Go to class. You pay for it and there is no need to let it go to waste.

GET INVOLVED ON CAMPUS!!
Tiffany from Tampa, FL
Make sure that you study a lot. It is very important. Also, if tutoring or extra help is available online or in the classroom, you should definately take the opportunity to do it. Also, you should make sure that you take a variety of classes your first semester and try not to slack off because it will be harder for you if you mess up your first semester.
Renee from Lake Worth, FL
Remember wherever you decide to go your education is based off of your own drive to study and do well. My advice is to really pick a field of study you enjoy so at least your happy with what your doing and you will want to go to school. It has worked for me so far.

Any student considering Florida Atlantic University is making a great choice. At this school, you will be able to complete your actual academic objective. People at FAU are there to learn, and prepare for the future.
In terms of the college experience, there are plenty of interesting opportunities regarding clubs, organizations, or other institutions for further involvement at the University.
However, anyone that is looking for a strong college education should take time to evaluate FAU's excelled options.
Samantha from Coral Springs, FL
Bring late-night snacks and plenty to share--there are always friends around to keep you company. Bring a bike or other means of getting around campus, because it is large. In sunny Boca, you’ll get a work-out just getting to your classes.

Omar from Jupiter, FL
For prospective students, FAU, is a optional school. What I mean, is that FAU, give you so many options. For example, if you are a local student, who just live thirty minutes away from this university, this school is perfect for that person. If you are a out of state student who is looking for a traditional university experience, this college also fits that person. FAU, serves many people wants. It doesn't matter who you are, or where you live. FAU, will still be the college that will fit you.
