What is unique about my school compared to other schools I considered was its location and diversity. The beautiful Metropolitan Campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University which I attend is located in Teaneck, New Jersey which is only 10 minutes away from home. Because of my schools location, I have been given the opportunity to maintain and even build better relationships with my parents, brother, sister, grandmother, and cousins, aunts and uncles. Another unique quality about FDU is its diversity. FDU has a very diverse environment and many diverse cultures. My campus alone has attracted students from over 63 countries!
Fairleigh Dickinson has many different programs that help students succeed. They have a Latino Promise program for Spanish people that helps them to succeed and take a few classes over seas. If a student needs the extra help with any subject there is one on one or group tutoring. College Professors will find several ways to each student pass the class whether it is extra time after class, tutoring or even extra practice assignments. Fairleigh Dickinson gives a lot of Financial Aid to qualifying students with low incomes. FDU doesn't give up on any student.
I was very attracted to FDU because of its location and connections with the United Nations in New York. This school hosts online and live lectures from various ambassadors from around the world. The school also offers an internship in the United Nations. The faculty for the political science and international relations courses is excellent. The professors are noted people int heir fields and are really competent in their subject areas.
I think the environment, the professors and the students are definitely unique at my school compared to others. My best friend goes to a different school and when she tells me things I think about how it is in my school. It's so much more different. The people are so friendly and always smiling at you. The environment is very comfortable, you almost feel like you are at home. The students are so diverse and friendly. It's just great.
It has a great deal of resources for whatever major you chose. It had opportunities for internships, jobs, and studying abroad. FDU also has campuses outside the country, like in Wroxton, England and in Canada.
Fairleigh Dickinson University is a well rounded school, meaning it is academically inclined and diverse, and everyone at the school is very accepting no matter what your background.
The amount of diversity is like nothing ive ever experienced before. It's great
Friendly and caring atmosphere
