Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Fairleigh Dickinson University is best know for being the leader in global education. There are many opportunities for international students to study at Fairleigh Dickinson and for Fairleigh Dickinson students to study abroad.

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

Do not choose a college just because your friends plan on going there. Choosing to travel your own path will present you will amazing opportunities to experience things differently than others and introduce you to some really amazing people. Make sure you make decisions based on what is best for you economically. Keep in mind that your education will help you achieve great goals, and that you will have the opportunity to apply for financial aid and apply for scholarships!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

What is most frustrating about my school is how overwhelming it can become while taking many credits. Although, I am sure this is how it would be at any school.

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

My recommendation for prospective students would be to list their priorities. Figure out what you really want in a school, and stick to that. Secondly, I would make sure I visit my choice campus several times throughout the year prior to enrollment. It is importnant to see campus life throughout the year.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I fell that a good candidate for this school would include a person who is dedicated to academics. This campus is not the most beautiful campus, nor is the area it is located, however, the professors are wonderful. I have made many friends throughout my education at FDU, and would do it again. Students are serious about learning and succeeding in life, and faculty is serious about helping their students achieve this goal.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The least appealing thing about this school was the age/condition of the campus.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Fairleigh Dickinson University is best known for its diverse population of student, and division one athletics. The University has students from 92 different countries, which backs up the school's name as "The Leader in Global Education". With the various NEC Conference championships and one NCAA women?s bowling championship, there is no wonder why the school is known for its Varsity sports. In conclusion, the University best known for its diverse student population and reputation in division one sports.

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

The advice I would give to parents and students would be to do a lot of research before his or her senior year of high school.Visit one's guidence counselor for advice and go to as many open houses at schools that one is interested in . After, deciding the schools, one is interested in; he or she should research for the scholarships and grants that one can obtain. While figuring out all the financial standpoints, one should apply at a good amount of schools and apply early as well. Reason being as the old saying goes ?the early bird gets the worm? the earlier one sends out the application the faster one will get response. In conclusion, the advice I would give is doeverything early and get all the information before one makes one of the biggest decision of his or her academic career.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

While chatting with my friends, about school, I usually brag about how diverse the university is and how small the classes are. Reason being, with a diverse student body one can learn a lot about different cultures and ethnicities, which does interest me. Also, I boast about having the ability to really interact with the professors and get the advice that I need to further my academic career .

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

A college experience is whatever you make of it. I tend to disagree with that statement because students are not going to college for the same reasons anymore. The University concept to me was a world of diversity and I am not talking about culture. When I was in high school, I couldn't wait to attend college because I wanted to unite with students who shared the same devotion as I did. My whole perception of college crumbled when I attended little gatherings in dorms around campus. It was all about drinking and smoking; immaturity followed me. Little that the school knew, which they are still proabably unaware of, there was a drug dealing business going on in one of the dorms. Nobody finds it interesting that there is so much foot traffic going into one of the dormortories. I realized it wasn't worth paying to live on campus. I suppose that was one of the ironic lessons to become a well rounded student. One piece of advice I would give to any high schooler, make a few friends at the school before they enroll. College is overrated so do what you need to do and get out.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you have no idea what you want to become, you should not come here. This college is a good college DEPENDING on your major. For the price of this school, it is not worth coming to just to put a piece of paper on your wall. Someone who is expecting the typical college experience should not come here. Im only here to get what I need and get out.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I would not use the word brag because it is a little arrogant and immature. However, if I am asked why I picked FDU, I tell them that their nursing program is one of the best in the state of New Jersey; that is the truth.

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

The advice that I would give parents and/or students about finding the right college and making the most of the college experience is timing is everything. When it comes to finding the right college you have to start early. It is a good idea during freshman year of high school to achieve in academics and sports/clubs. Then around sophomore year of high school, parents/students should start considering colleges/universities and see what requirements are needed to be accepted. When these standards are known, then the rest of high school can be dedicated to meeting these requirements. By the time the student is a senior they will be sent to venture into college. When the student is finally accepted into the college/university of choice, they'll have to get familiar with the college life. The first advice for having a positive college experience is surrounding you with the right individuals. People, who enhance your life, not delay success. Also, the way to make the most of the college experience is to prioritize. A student should realize that everything has its place. Its just the order they organize it within their lives that make or break an individual.

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

Enrollment services are not helpful. They do not work to find alternatives to help students.
