Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida Atlantic University (FAU) introduced me into college life, provided guidance in my career, and showed tremendous support in my pursuit for a degree in Social Work. Their extremely diverse and welcoming campus will open your eyes to new perspectives and ideals all while making you feel at home. No matter what your major is, you will always be able to find help when needed. FAU's cares about its students, encouraging them to have healthy lifestyles and providing opportunities to unravel from the stress of college life. I was a transfer student who accepted their Bachelor's after two years and, because of the teachers and school's support, will be receiving my Master's degree in one. I hope you check it out!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I graduated from Florida Atlantic University in December 2016 with a Bachelor of Social Work. I started FAU's Advanced Standing MSW program in May. I believe FAU's BSW program prepared me for generalist practice in the world of Social Work. Since I would like to work as a substance abuse counselor, I am now pursuing a Master's degree. From my experience over the last year and a half, FAU has an excellent program. The faculty is fantastic and genuinely cares. They are very willing to help and want students to succeed. There will always be a few who don't want to do the work and complain about everything, but if you work hard and genuinely want to learn, you will have a great experience. I believe the curriculum will give students what they need for generalist practice. I would highly recommend FAU to anyone who wants to become a social worker. One of my former professors is now leading the school of social work. She has a tremendous amount of energy and is working hard to push the program to the next level, not to mention the school was recently named the Phyllis and Harvey Sandler School of Social Work after receiving a generous donation of $7 million dollars. Besides having excellent professors, my advisors were also very helpful in making sure I was taking the right courses to graduate on time. The field placement my last semester was challenging and gave me valuable hands-on case management experience. Every effort is made to find students field placements that are a good fit. Since FAU is a state school, tuition is reasonable and won't set you back like a private school, plus I believe you will get a better education at FAU.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Absolutely the most unbelievably horrible admission's experience ever. Computer registration process is also bad. Undergraduate professors are all different quality and some could care less. The FAU administration should be replaced. Almost no merit aid so most middle class family pay full cost! You can get a better education at a lower price at almost any other college..

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

I graduated in 2013 from Florida Atlantic University with a BAC in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. I completed one year of a masters program at FaU in clinical mental health counseling where I worked as a graduate assistant at the office for students with disabilities. I feel this experience helped prepare me for the workforce, opened my eyes to cultural sensitivity in the work place, was a very rewarding opportunity, and helped me network with professionals in the field.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2010

Florida Atlantic University is a great place to earn your degree. The faculty is knowledgeable, accessible and always willing to help you succeed. FAU also provides many resources such as the career center, tutoring and a writing center that are free of charge. I am from a different part of the Florida and what first attracted me to FAU was the wide array of undergraduate programs that are offered, from biology to studio art to nursing. Also, the location cannot be better-out of the hustle and bustle of South Florida but within an hour of Miami, West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale. Choose FAU! Go Owls!

Degree: Management Information Systems, General
Graduation Year: 2016

FAU offers a great variety of classes from online to on campus for your undergraduate career. It also offers many clubs to join in order to network with fellow students and possible future employers. I had the opportunity to become Treasurer for MISA for a semester and that allowed me to even add CEO's to my LinkedIn connections. Of course, FAU provides the opportunity, but it's up to you to follow it. FAU also offers great "Accelerated Program" for those who wish to get both their Bachelors/Masters degree withing 5-years (finish your bachelor in 4 years, go straight into your masters and finish in 1 year) which is an opportunity I decided to pursue. I am due to graduate with my masters in Information Technology this Fall 2017 after finishing my bachelors in Fall 2016. Not many opportunities like this arise, and I am so happy FAU offered it.

Degree: Elementary Education

I attend Florida Atlantic University from 2009-2011 pursuing a bachelors degree in Elementary Education K-6. The university and courses thoroughly prepared me for my career as a teacher. The professors were extremely knowledgeable and very helpful throughout my college experience. When I graduated in the Fall of 2011 I felt ready to enter the profession as an Elementary Teacher.
