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: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

When I was in my senior year of high school, it was time to choose the college of my future. People suggested me to apply to the grand, popular schools. I thought to myself "Isn't it the quality of education that is more important than the name?" I am so glad I went with my gut instinct of choosing Florida Atlantic University, as it truly was the best four years of my life. The professors were stellar and personable, the lectures full of thought-provoking ideas, the student body so encouraging of your success. It truly is what you make of it, as everyone has different experiences. However, after seizing every opportunity that came my way at FAU, I can truly say that I made the most out of my time there. I am so proud of being an FAU alum!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I absolutely love my experience during my BSW! I can honestly say that every professor that I encountered was truly knowledgable, understanding, and really wanted their students to succeed. Sometimes, people think of having a successful college experience includes getting by with "nicest professors", and "easiest classes". However, although those are always in the students mind during the time they are competing a degree, it is NOT most important. You will really appreciate when you leave your BSW program and actually know what you have learned, understand what you have learned, and have the abilities to implement what you have learned.

Degree: Film/Cinema/Video Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The location and atmosphere were nice. Most professors are willing to work with students to make the best of their college experience. Personally, the general classes were a bit dull but at FAU, students get what they pay for. My overall experience at the school was good.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The Social Work program at FAU did an amazing job at preparing me to work with diverse populations. In our classes, we covered information of a multitude of cultures, socioeconomic classes, differing sexualities, and vulnerable communities. Teachers gave us real life examples from their experience and painted a very thorough picture of what the profession was like. I graduated the program feeling confident and ready.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Florida Atlantic University was a great school to attend. The teachers were helpful whenever I needed them. The academic advisers knew their job well and were able to get me into the classes I needed so that I can complete my degree. Even with my moving across the country and back again, they kept me on track to graduate.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

Receiving a degree in Information Technology has been a good decision. Yet, this degree alone has not been enough to secure gainful employment. It has acted as a "support" to other education, such as an MBA or a Doctorate. Reason is that many IT companies require at least working knowledge in programming or databases. An IT degree is more geared from management rather than computer science. A more marketable skill would have been in computer science or computer engineering. Yet a student needs to have at least some knowledge or interest in programming, computers, math or engineering in order to be accepted into and succeeding in the computer science field. Computer science is a more difficult program of study than Information systems. Yet the potential to securing gainful employment and making twice as much in income would be worth the time and effort for a student majoring in computer science, programming or databases. An IT degree would be a good compliment to another masters degree such as an MBA or Management.
