I can only speak on being a transfer student, a student in the Creative Writing program as well as a commuter student. The 2019-2020 school year was my first year at Fairleigh Dickinson University and it already feels like I have been there for a full four years. When trying to get a hold of necessary financial information, trying to make my class schedule for the semester or making sure you are ready to start the upcoming semester is like pulling teeth. I never knew who to talk to or email when getting the necessary information and even when I was able to get a response from someone, they were unable to help and sent me to someone else and waited for weeks for a response. This school does not know how to guide their transfer students to be able to complete their degree. Looking on the commuter aspect, to get a spot in any parking lot you have to arrive half an hour before your class starts. With one main lot everyone parks in, parking is extremely scarce.
The creative writing program, on the other hand, has been a positive experience. While I have only taken a few classes so far and had experienced one professor in this program, it has been nothing but positive. After hearing experiences from other students that have either completed the program, have taken multiple classes and experienced the other professors, almost all of them are easy going and willing to help you in any way they can. I am excited to have the chance to experience other aspects while continuing in this program.
FDU is a overall a great school and perfect small campus but the problem is there is nothing to do around campus unless you have a car. The school program, FPC is the worst with making activities for students in my opinion. The housing are terrible the only two new residential Halls are Park Ave and Rutherford Hall and the campus food is the worst and the only good food in campus is Leafs & Grains.
I have had many problems receiving help from staff for scheduling and housing. The size of the campus is great and it is beautiful. The small class sizes are great for getting help when struggling and the professors are always available to help students.
This University is a great one. People are very friendly and helpful. Professors are always there to help however you may need. They give you their email and you can contact them whenever you need help. It's a great small community. I'm very happy and comfortable here.

Could you imagine furthering your development in an atmosphere filled with people of a like age who are furthering theirs as well? Where you grow, not only in mind, body, and spirit, but in maturity as well? Where you learn the importance of making choices? This place is college. Sure that leaving a nurturing atmosphere like that of home and being plunged into a world full of young adults is frightening but this, besides academics, is the most important part about it; being social and making friends. Both dorming and building strong friendships are fundamental as you are not only gaining independence and maturing, but you are also building contacts. Today's world is all about being connected, not just through the internet, but through peers. Here, you learn that sociability is a crucial weapon to success, first on campus, then in life. See that your college of choice provides ample extracurricular activities be they an array of organizations and/or sports. Get involved.
Fairleigh Dickinson is a place to build character and grow among peers in a safe and judgment-free environment.
The worst thing about this campus is the campus layout. It not to bad, but the distance from dorms to most classroom makes students want to drive to class rather then walk. The campus is on a very old family estate with a mansion.
The type of person that should not attend this school is someone that is looking for help when it comes to financial aid and enrollement in classes.
The location - as a business major, we have access to major financial institutions, and New York City.
The type the students that should attend this school are people who are dorming or lives near this college. Athletics shouldn't attend this college since this is a division III school.
The teachers are extremely involved with the students.
I wish I would have known more about the amount of financial aide they provide ( scholarships, and grant). I had no idea that they gave out so much money. Instead of going to a community college first to save money, I could have just started at Fairleigh as a freshman. It was always my dream school, but the "sticker price" was terrifying.
They are social and academic.
Fairleigh Dickinson college at Florham is best known for our Silberman Business program which is actually quite excellent from what I hear. In our area, ou school is deemed the 'fun' school which is worrisome as it's quite dull.
That the study aboard program is excellent
The most frustrating thing about Fairleigh Dickinson University is the "priority point" system they use for housing. It makes it very difficult for new students to get placed into the housing of their choice with people of their choice if they have not joined a soroity or fraternity yet, or participate in a sport.
