What is your overall opinion of this school?

Florida Atlantic University is a really good school and I am having the best time. I have met so many new and different people throughout my time here and I would not trade it for anything. Although the campus may look nice, there are some things I think they should change. The cafeteria food needs to up their game a little bit and not end their cooked meals so early in the evening. I also think they should add time to how long the food court is opened during the week. Overall, the dorms and the professors are awesome here.

An opportunity to learn in a large class setting. Must be able to conform to certain class schedules, as the selections are quite limited. Professors are caring, however, the department of registrar can become difficult.

It's a good school, fun, great campus. It's definitely the most luxurious of the public universities in Florida. Teachers are great and accessible. On campus housing is nice like great views and sits on nice property but it also depends who you dorm with.

For students seeking higher education in a university setting, the responsibilities of being a young adult having to constantly use critical thinking skills for every decision can be overwhelming. However, at Florida Atlantic University, critical thinking is a skill that is promoted, which helps freshmen adjust to their new environment and interconnect with other students of many different backgrounds. More specifically, FAU promotes critical thinking because it cultivates students to analyze real-life problems and provide the best solutions at the same time, there are programs on campus that are meant to protect students from traumatic situations. The university provides a strong balance between promoting critical thinking and providing trigger warnings for students in order to prepare ideas that may upset them. ). In 2017, a private prison corporation, the GEO Prison Group, led by a former student of FAU, offered to sponsor the construction of the school’s stadium for six million dollars, in exchange for the naming rights. Students of FAU demonstrated microaggression by protesting after board officials accepted the deal and went public. Students felt that the GEO Prison Group’s history of human rights abuse was intolerable. However, students demonstrated critical thinking because they band together to fight something, they felt was unfair within their school. Consequently, faculty at FAU were persuaded to protest alongside students, who victoriously convinced the faculty senate to condemn the deal. FAU’s main objective is to nurture young adults to have a strong foundation of knowledge and effectively solve problems by utilizing facts over opinion. FAU promotes a 0-credit course that is mandatory for all incoming freshmen transitioning from high school to a university; this course is called Student Learning Services or (SLS). SLS encourages students to not only express themselves but to accept others who share different backgrounds, as well as urging students to practice safe drinking and report cases of sexual or social harassment. SLS correlates with the authors' notion that people are misguided into believing that historical topics are “dangerous or damaging” and should be avoided altogether because of hostility and sensitivity (Lukianoff and Haidt 266). However, exposure strengthens tolerance as well as teaches students to value and analyze new environments in order to adapt and put their best foot forward.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My time at Florida Atlantic University has been great. In general, professors are there for you and are willing to help inside and outside the classroom. The friends I have met at Florida Atlantic University have been great and always support me and my goals. The pre-health office has been extremely helpful and allowed me to strengthen my application to Dental School, ultimately leading to 5 acceptances! There are lots of extracurricular activities to get involved in at Florida Atlantic University. Overall, I believe it is an underrated school in Florida!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice school, however there are some issues with it. The housing gets overcrowded sometimes and since Boca Raton is an expensive city, off-campus living is not cheap. The parking is not enough to accommodate all the students. The internet connection is spotty when walking in between buildings. The advisors are also not very helpful. The school is what you make of it.
