Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The private school in New Jersey was what I expected because of the cost. Most people felt they were entitled because of the money and status that their parents had.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2008

There were many opportunities afforded to be as a graduate of FDU. I feel that their graduate programs are competitive.

FDU has a great faculty who truly cares about their students succeeding. It is a friendly atmosphere and has a great campus!

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2009

Great School especially on the Madison Campus. But I will caution if you are looking to be well respected in the world of finance or any type or Bank/PE/etc. this degree will basically not be recognized. If you are looking to go into Big 4 you will be all set.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

The Madison campus is beautiful, however the Science programs at this campus are fairly new since it is more of a business school. I would recommend this college for people studying business.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

I would not recommend FDU. The career counselors were not helpful at all in helping me find a career. There are almost no activities and events to do on campus. The classes weren't challenging at all. Overall, it was a big disappointment.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2011

If you are looking into Nursing, Engineering or Business, this school is for you. They have excellent programs with good instructors. Being close to NYC, there is opportunities to work or intern in the city. It is a great place to meet people, especially from around the world. It is also a good area if you are going to live on campus; lots of restaurants, stores, and opportunity to make friends with people who commute.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2009

I am currently working towards a Master's Degree in Nursing, specializing in Family Practice, at the USC. I did my undergrad at FDU which I believe help prepare me for my graduate degree. The program is very rigorous but if you are committed, you can definitely pull through and makes all the sacrifices worth it.
