I have previously attended two different four-year universities, University of Phoenix and Nova Southeastern University. Therefore, I will base my answer on a comparison between these schools and FAU. The difference that stands out between these two schools and FAU is simple: variety. At NSU and UOP, you were not able to find a variation of cultures, people and interests. You had limits; there were not a vast amount of activities, clubs or organizations as there are at FAU. Also, the college campus here at FAU is much more spacious and bigger than NSU's and OPU's.
