This a great school because of the quality of the teachers and the amount of support given to each student ranging from financial aid to career services. The downside to this school is the housing exspenses. It can be costly living in Boca Raton Fl

Pros: Program has evening, Saturday fast track, and online classes for speed of delivery and ease of scheduling, advisors are well-informed and helpful. Cons: Saturday classes are 8 hour days, which can be tiresome; many assignments are done in groups, which can be bad for the overachievers.

The pros are that FAU is a rapidly growing school with tons of potential and they are good at giving you the tools you need to get to your goals. The con is that our football team isn't the greatest. However, we are improving on that too.

It is a young institution but is committed the students from expanding degree programs, activities and building collaborations with industry especially in the sciences with Scripps, Max Planck, Torrey Pines and VGTI, among others. Student life is very active for a commuter campus an great strides are being made to provide housing on campus. It is a very diverse campus with a strong multicultural and international studies offices.
