STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

FDU- IT IS FOR YOU

I opted for this particular college due to their Graduate program connections. They had many joint or accelerated programs that would allow you to bypass your senior year of Undergrad. I also had lots of study abroad options. Diverse student population. Close to the city.


Course Curriculum - 

The course curriculum was fair. However, it was not very challenging but contained a lot of busy work. I would have preferred a more flexible course schedule which would have allowed students to explore more courses outside of their major.
