What's your overall opinion of Faulkner University?

14 Students rated Faulkner University


Faulkner University is a scamming school. The school promotes themselves on a high pedestal,but in reality they are worse than any other university. The school only cares about money! Before your acceptance they shower you with scholarships and emails, but when your consumed in the system the scholarships disappear.


Faulkner university has truly changed my life. I have found classes I can actually go sit in and learn which will help better my future for my family and I. I work full time and am the assistant band director for the City of Mobile, Alabama so I have "hundreds" of children. Faulkner University is helping me get the tools I need to help make better decisions as a leader and human being.


Need to have a more energetic atmosphere. I would like to see students interacting more. Maybe even a Quad area for study would be nice to see more one on one time with students. There also needs to be more office hours with staff and students, it is hard to connect with the faculty especially when their office hours vary and they do not keep us updated.


I would recommend to anyone looking for a college to come here. It has an amazing atmosphere, and everyone feels loved. The professors here care about you and want you to well in school. There are so many chances to grow closer to God here. At Faulkner you feel like a family!
