Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I was a dual major in college, and when I compare the quality of the two colleges I belonged to, I would choose the English department hands down. They have a variety of professors, but more times than not you'll find one or two professors you'll stick too, especially they teach your required courses. The psychology department is problematic, though classes are sometimes large and you'll probably be taught by a teaching assistant, that's fine and expected. The problem is when the majority of the courses are taught by teaching assistants. Professors of the behavioral department were a rare sight, I suppose this was because they were focused more on their experiments. I never had the chance to connect with my psychology professors the way I connected with my English professors.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2011

The online RN- BSN program at Florida Atlantic University was a wonderful fit with my life. The program was available at my convenience from anywhere. The class outlines were well written and listed a timeline of what to expect and when assignments were due. Online weekly class discussions assisted with learning as well as online group projects. There was as much or as little guidance available as needed and full access to the instructors. The entire program was a wonderful experience.

Degree: Digital Communication and Media/Multimedia
Graduation Year: 2014

For those looking at my review, it would be understandable if there is some confusion, as I selected that I am not satisfied with the impact of my education but I recommend the school. Florida Atlantic University is a great school, just not for my career path. I did not learn the skills necessary for directing: it was more so theory based than practice. The courses that I was enrolled in taught me about the history of film, not necessarily how to create one. In terms of diversity, I can surely say that it was: students of many backgrounds attend the university, which I admire because I love to be surrounded by people of all colors. It is definitely a commuter school, however. When I used to live on campus, I would travel back home on the weekends because the campus would be dead. It is definitely beneficial to have a form of transportation, such as a car, because it can be difficult traveling off of campus. I found career advising to be useful. The job database was updated consistently and the advisors were very helpful and available if anyone were to need assistance picking a career or cleaning up their resumes or cover letters. Campus safety is also good. There is a service called "Night Owls," which picks up students once it begins to get dark outside and takes them to their apartments, cars, or classes. As I've said, I do recommend this school for those who are interested. But my word of advice would be to make sure the career you're going for has an excellent program there. Check the ratings, take a tour, do whatever it is that you need to do before you make a final decision.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

In my opinion, Florida Atlantic University has to be one of the most underrated schools in the state. While its name may not hold the same weight as Florida State or University of Florida, the quality of the courses and professors is second to none. I learned so much from this school not only in my classes, but in the opportunities I had all over campus. First, I was a part of the Greek community, where I met some of my closest and best friends that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Second, I had the chance to be a part of the Diplomacy Program, which meant that I was able to travel to New York City and compete in the prestigious Model United Nations competition. These opportunities were just some of the ways I was able to learn and grow not only as a student, but also as a person at FAU. I will forever be thankful for this school and am thrilled to now be pursuing my masters here!

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2005

I studied sociology at FAU. It was a good major taught by good professors. They had good facilities too. I enjoyed the on campus dining and exercises rooms. Overall my four years at Florida Atlantic were the best of my life, and I hope to go back someday, even if just to visit.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

During my time at FAU, I was fortunate to have an amazing English advisor who was able to assist me throughout my journey at FAU. She helped complete a few internships during my time at FAU while also encouraging me to succeed. The professors at this university want students to learn and provide opportunities for students to do that. I feel that in some respects that the course offerings could have been more diverse, but other than that I really enjoyed my time at FAU. I don't regret it.

Degree: Mathematics and Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I was mostly on the Jupiter campus. The campus is beautiful and quiet. It hosts a small but diverse population. If you're looking for a rigorous but engaging program with a small close knit school, this is the place to go. The professors were great and very supportive. The Honors College requires a thesis to be done and an internship/study abroad. This requirement allowed me to personally gain from an internship opportunity and get some practice writing a thesis. Given the partnership between the Honors College and Scripps and Max Planck, I also had the opportunity to be taught by some of the researchers from these institutes along with attending some of their events. Overall, I really enjoyed my time at FAU's Honors College.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2010

FAU is a great school with good professors and course offerings. Their education department is great and is staffed by some truly amazing people who give you real world knowledge, not just blurbs from textbooks. Most of the professors are active teachers or spent years teaching in k-12 classrooms so they are able to teach from experience.
