Fairleigh Dickinson University-College at Florham Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
I went to FDU to play volleyball and to attend a school in another state. It appealed to me because it seemed close to NYC and I wanted to experience the city life. It was a good school for me because it was more urban compared to many of the rural schools I visited, but there were many commuters which made it possible for me to only be friends with athletes that stayed on campus or the few non commuter non athletes.
My university has improved in the past four decades, but is still somewhat true to the old postulate, "If one can't go to university, go to Fairleigh.". Having now given short shrift to my alma mater; I managed to rise above its reputation, only to sink into lethargy and sloth, with subsequent effect to my earning ability.
The Psychology program at FDU Florham is phenomenal, the classes are interesting and challenging and the teachers are extremely helpful when teaching and tutoring students. The program is an overview of the different areas of psychology and also allows students to take elective classes in their own interests such as counseling or industrial psychology. The degree is very liberal arts based still, but does allow students to take many different psychology classes and with great teachers. My psychology classes were among my favorite at the school.
Students going to Fairleigh Dickinson are not going to receive the assistance that they need. The college doesn't help you when it comes to financial aid and academic advising. They throw you in there with your classes and sometimes they'll even put you over credits and not tell you about extra fees. They will give you money for your year which is totally fine but they will never give you a full scholarship. Even if you are extremely poor you will always have to pay something
