Fairleigh Dickinson University-Metropolitan Campus Reviews
Only go to Fairleigh Dickinson University for business, nursing, or engineering because those programs are very successful. However, for any liberal arts majors, run! The only way I would suggest you go to FDU for a liberal arts major is if you minor in the QUEST program to guarantee yourself a teaching job. The tuition is too high to get a degree that does not guarantee a job after graduation. Most people transferred out during my stay there because of finances. It is an extremely expensive school, but it does have the EOF program, which benefited me immensely. Not many people qualify for the EOF program, however. If you want to go to school there, apply for plenty of scholarships.
Solid campus atmosphere at FDU. Good networking opportunities due to the proximity of NYC. Sadly when I was in college taking classes online was not an option so I cannot comment on their online education programs. The cost is on the high side but the quality of education and reputation of the school measure up.
FDU is not necessarily an awful school and if you are a committed student and seek out guidance, you will be able to succeed here. However, to succeed here is not necessarily very difficult. It can be challenging at times, but if you apply some effort you can easily get a GPA of 3.4 or higher fresh out of high school. I would suggest going to a less expensive school for undergrad work, especially if you do not receive a scholarship to go here. For me, the college represented good value at $15,000 but without scholarships it is a bad deal. Also, be prepared for a campus that feels rather dead. You don't really get the sense of anything exciting or groundbreaking happening here. If colleges were analogous to food, this place is a saltine cracker with no salt. There are a few clubs and events for students to consider but there is a huge lack of campus vibrancy around here. The food also happens to be very poor. Overall, I can understand why someone would consider this school especially if you leave nearby, but I feel that there are other colleges in the area that can serve students better. Trust me, having a strong work-rate here will stick out and to potential students, I would suggest to look elsewhere.
