Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

I highly recommend Florida Atlantic University to anyone who is wants to pursue a degree in biology. The counselors are very helpful and really care about the students success. The athletic programs are great here though and it's fun to go to all of the games, football, basketball, lacrosse, etc. With the science department, you'll get a TA that doesn't speak English well about 1/4th of the time but the professors all know what they are talking about and for the most part teach well (there's always a few bad ones no matter where you go). The TA's and professors try their best to help out the students, especially if you personally ask. I don't regret coming here because it's cheap for me (in-state, presidential scholarship) and I'm learning a lot academically. The social life was never a huge part to me because I still have made a few good friends and don't go to lots of parties anyways. I would recommend anyone considering FAU to give it a good chance and possibly visit as any kind of person could succeed and have a good time here.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

I was a double major in Biology and English at FAU, and graduated within 4 years with both degrees. While undergraduate advisors are seemingly helpful, FAU offers a wide variety of student success services. Being a double-major, I spent considerable time at FAUs Writing Center and Math-Learning-Center. My teachers varied in their educational style, and all of my biology labs were fun and hands-on. Some of my labs took field trips to the Florida Keys, the Everglades, and the Indian River Lagoon. Being marine focused, I was lucky enough to attend FAUs Semester-by-the-Sea (marine-science based course load). All of FAUs campuses are beautiful, and the locations are amazing. I would recommend this school to students who are self-motivated and independent.

Degree: Biology

If you are out of state and 100% establish residency good luck getting it! I spent 5 years fighting with them to get it they are cons! On top of that if you have loan refunds to receive... You guessed it good luck! If you want to get railed every year this is 100% the school for you! Professors couldn't care less about you either! I asked a professor for a letter of recommendation they said they would glady do one for me... guess who spent a year blowing up their email and never got a letter! I highly highly recommend you dont send your kid or if you are a student don't go here! I guarantee you will regret it! The quality of education here is worse than anything I have ever seen! Oh ya good luck trying to understand your professors by the way 90% of them barely speak English as if the material wasn't hard enough as it is... If you do go here pray to whatever higher power you believe in that you have a student teacher because that is the only time you will actually learn something.

Degree: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2016

The College of Science at Florida Atlantic University has a great biological sciences program. I believe that it is one of the best here in south Florida, and not because I graduated from this school but it is because I have met students from other colleges that studied under the same major but they have not been exposed to amount of material as I have. Florida Atlantic University's program offers biological classes from many different subfields like microbiology, marine botany, plant physiology, anatomy and physiology, molecular genetics of again, biology of cancer, medical bacteriology, immunology, and so many more classes are offered. I had an interest in biological bases of behavior and comparative animal behavior and I took those classes as electives and its so wonderful to be able to get exposed to all these different fields because when you are an undergraduate you do not really know what you want to do, but this programs exposes you to just about everything so that you can know where your passion lies.

Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2016

FAU was my college for two degrees, and the experiences of each degree were similar. The teachers varied in their educational style, some better than others. The advising offices were lacking, but overall assisted me in gaining acceptance into a graduate program elsewhere. The campus is beautiful, and the location is amazing. I would recommend this school to students who are self-motivated. Those who are good at researching and implementing solutions by themselves will succeed.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

The school it self is very nice with immaculate facilities and exceptional teachers, however, there is a vast disconnect between advising offices when a student like me is getting a minor unrelated to my major while also being a part of the University's Honors program. In total, I had 10 advisers over the course of my 4 years at FAU, and I didn't even transfer from a different school. I never had the same adviser twice, and none of them know how to help me.

Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida Atlantic University was a wonderful school. I feel that although not all of the professors in the school were perfect, majority were aimed at helping us to succeed and achieving our goals. The degree I received required very rigorous courses, but overall helped me to better prepare for the future.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended Florida Atlantic University from 2011-2016 and during that time I gained a very supportive network of friends. Some of whom I even consider family. When I speak to anyone who is considering attending FAU, I tell them that the greatest experience FAU has to offer is its extracurricular activities. There is nearly an organization for everyone. Once I decided to join an organization, Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity, my college experience truly began. I cannot say that that would have occured at another university. FAU also as an incredibly diverse campus that aides you in getting a wider understanding of the world and all of its cultures. I loved my time at FAU and I advise everyone who asks me that attending FAU will be a phenomenal experience.

Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2016

Florida Atlantic University was a wonderful university to attend. I am about to start my Master's in Biomedical Science at FAU and I am so excited to be an Owl again! The professors, advisors, and students at FAU made such a difference on my life and I couldn't imagine having attended another university. The Neuroscience and Behavior program was rigorous, challenging, and insightful. I have heard such amazing things about the College of Medicine and I am so lucky to have been accepted into the program to earn my MS degree.
