Describe your favorite campus traditions.

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Locating the most suitable college may be very time consuming. Finding the right one revolves around what programs and activities that school provides. The school should include an adequate cost, your desired major, and your preferred distance from home. Some less significant, yet intriguing, factors you should check out are the scenery, weather, or diversity of the campus. These aspects increase the pleasure to the whole college experience and add comfort to your campus of choice. Make a list of priorities that consists of the features your ideal school and campus should contain. Write this list according to which is most significant at the top to least significant at the bottom. This should decrease the complexity of your search through catelogs or the internet for the best school. Whichever school(s) has the most features at the top of your priority list, make an appointment to attend an orientation there to see if the campus feels right to you. Best wishes to you on your college search!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Depending heavily on the responsibilty for my own actions is what I wish I had known before attending Fairleigh Dickinson University. Whether it be completion of homework assignments, punctuality, or asking for assistance, there was no room for being shy or giving excuses. After a couple of semesters, I realized the level of responsibilty I had to put forth. If I knew what I know today, my accomplishments would be twice as high than they are currently.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure to become involved in extra-curricular activities. The activities you participate in are likely to shape your view of the collegiate experiece, and will most likely be the more important thing you take away from school, at least as a liberal arts major. Make sure that whatever school you attend provides a wide variety of activities so that you will be able to find a club that fits your interests.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Fairleigh Dickinson University was the friendships I made through the fraternity I joined.

The teachers are extremely involved with the students.

Take your time and do your research. Only you know what will be the right place to help you succeed. Don't go somewhere just because your friends are going there. You will always make friends at school, while keeping your old ones. Get involved on campus with anything - sports, clubs, etc.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Look around. The college you or your child chooses will stay with them for the rest of their lives, so make sure that the programs and activities it offers are going to fit their needs. Looks for a school with an orientation program before the start of the school year, this is very beneficial. Orientations like this are where you will make the friends that will stay with you through the course of your higher education experience, and no matter how silly the orientation activities seem its best not to blow them off because then when school starts you have to adjust to classes and making friends at the same time. The next best piece of advice I can offer is to take advantage of academic support centers, they are there for your use and your benefit. On top of that, teachers love to see that you took the time out of your day to go and get extra help for their classes, and it can often mean the difference between an A and a B. In the end, it is the start of your adult life, so try to make the best of it.

What's unique about your campus?

I would say the best thing about Fairleigh Dickinson is its financial aid department. They are whole reason I chose this school. I've been struggling with paying for school and they have been nothing but helpful. They really are the most understanding people on campus, they really are they to help you and do whatever they can to male your college experience as stress free as possible.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who is interested in being involved with a fraternity or sorority should definitely look into Fairleigh, it has a very large greek community and they more or less run all of the campus activities. Our sport teams are also a good draw, I don't think we are Division I but I know that a large portion of our student body are involved with sports and speak highly of them.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Being a transfer student I know the importance of picking the right school all too well. When picking a school there are two things that someone should consider. The first is will they be happy there. I have found that this is an important part of the college finding process. For example if you are someone who always needs to be doing something, make sure you don?t pick a desolate place. This was my case, having grown up in NewJersey and then going to school in Pennsylvania initially. However I found that I was unhappy and even thought my GPA was 3.8 I just could not stand the location anymore. The other thing to realize is despite popular opinion college is for learning, not for partying, not for saying you went to a good school. If someone picks a college for the name, let?s say Duke and they doing badly because the classes are too big and they do not get the help they need. Well then they have to pick again and transfer. Remember even if someone goes to a college they are not marred to the place and they can always transfer and try again.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell a parent or student to choose a school that has a great academic program. The most important part about college is working hard to obtain excellent grades and knowledge for a future career. I would also tell the parent/student to look for a college with a small number of students. A small class size allows a student to receive one on one help from a professor. A professor is able to learn about the students in a smaller class to find out which students need more help than others. Also, a smaller school is better for the student's social life. He or she will be able to make friends with everyone who attends the school, rather than losing track of all the students at a large school. A small college lets people know each other on a more personal level and guarantees friendships for a lifetime.

What's unique about your campus?

One of the best things about my school is the diversity in the people who attend FDU and their friendliness. They are willing to help each other out and are very open to meeting new people. Another thing that is great about this school is the extra help that is offered for classes. If a student is having trouble in a specific subject, he or she can go to academic support for help. Professors also offer extra help.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person who should attend this school should be someone who is determined to work hard, get good grades, and wants to better his or her future by obtaining a great career. Also, someone who is able to get along with others and willing to experience new and different things.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Start early! I waited too long to make my decision and had to "settle" for a school with a rolling deadline for admission. I love the school that I am at but I think I could be in a better situation had I spent more time really focusing on what will make me happy. Happiness is the one thing you cannot, no matter what anyone says, buy or pay for in any way. Get an early start! Go out and make the BEST decision. Don't settle.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Energetic, focused individuals.
