Student & Graduate Reviews

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

FAU wasnt my first choice- but I am proud to say that today, without a doubt it is my only choice. Finding a perfect fit in college is difficult and often nerve-racking. Yet, FAU has done a remarkable job with allowing me to not only cultivate my vision, passion, and love for academics, but also has given me the opportunity to find people who see and believe in my potential beyond just an academic realm. My name is Francine Coker and I am currently working on my Masters of Business Administration with a focus in Hospitality Management. My professors here at FAU have grown my heart to reach out and impact the way education is used to not only grow a student academically, but personally too. I believe that a student needs a school that will show value to them beyond the test scores they can produce. FAU is the university that offer students with a Why or an invincible purpose that challenges and calls forth their potential. I have found every reason to plant my roots and grow at Florida Atlantic University. They say that every child deserves their champion; a person, a challenge, or a calling that allows them to step out of their comfort zones and into the world of possibility.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

I loved this school. Having gone to a school for undergrad I was less then thrilled with. This one made believe college can be a fun experience. All of the professors were helpful and curteous. The staff was very concerned and cared about me. I would receive an email every semester from my advisor just checking in to see how I was doing.

Degree: Entrepreneurship
Graduation Year: 2018

Florida Atlantic University is a fantastic place to begin your collegiate career. As an international student, I had a great pleasure to transfer to FAU my junior year. In the next two years, which have led me to receiving a BBA in Hospitality Management, I had a great pleasure to learn about entering the business world and what my values and aspirations are. Once I have identified my values, I came one step closer to analyzing how I may benefit our community. While being an undergraduate student, I was exposed to multiple scholarships available to students with high academic excellence, involvement with military and those who are actively involved on campus and community through Greek life, Student Government, and combinations of such. Upon receiving a Bachelor degree, I was unsure where I shall take my path. That is when my academic adviser recommended to apply to graduate school. Today, a year later from meeting my adviser, I am halfway done with my MBA degree and clearly know that I want identify myself as an entrepreneur and a public speaker. During my first year of the graduate school, I joined the Toastmasters club at FAU, which has prepared me to present and being called a "Championship Winner" at the FAU Three Minute Thesis Competition. Furthermore, FAU College of Business hosts annual "Business Plan Competition" to support young entrepreneurs in their endeavors to change the world. I had a pleasure participating in this year Business Plan competition and will do so next year! These are some of the opportunities FAU offers to its students, to which I have been and am personally exposed. The school has many different angles to prepare individuals with various interests, be that science, business or art. Most importantly, it does not hurt that the university is located at a place where it is always warm and the beach is 10 minutes away. Highly recommend!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

I recently graduated from Florida Atlantic Universities Accelerated BSN program with the honor of Summa Cum Laude and now I am a student of the BSN-DNP program. I am continuing my education to achieve my ultimate goal of becoming a caring and committed Family Nurse Practitioner. Florida Atlantic University is an exceptional school, specifically the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing. The courses, professors, and overall program help each student succeed to become exceptional nurses and nurse practitioners. I am honored to have been accepted into the BSN-DNP program at the Christine E. Lynn College, and know that I am getting the best education possible.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

FAU and especially my college has provided me great guidance and support throughout my program. The coursework offered allowed me the opportunity to tailor my degree toward my interests and future career path. The university overall offers a wide-range of courses through face-to-face, hybrid, and online offerings, which would meet anyone's needs and/or schedule. I am very proud to be connected to my university!
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at Florida Atlantic University is small but mighty. The core faculty are great and super knowledgeable in their fields so they have the expertise and connections needed to get far in this field. The staff are supportive and generally understanding when it comes to the struggle of being a full-time student and working part-time. I have learned so many things from this program and have benefited from the smaller class sizes. Assistant-ships are available for those who apply early and get to know the professors, as well which really helped me fund my degree! If you are looking for a master's degree in Women's Studies FAU is certainly a great place to obtain one.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently enrolled at FAU where I am pursuing a degree in Educational Leadership for School Leaders (K-12). The program is engaging and the professors are amazing. What I like best about the program is that they offer many ways to attain the degree which is beneficial for those who work full time. As a high school English teacher, balancing school and work is stressful but the FAU scheduling helps to relieve some of the burden.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

Florida Atlantic University's English Department is outstanding. Pursuing my MA at FAU was a no-brainer, as the faculty's excitement for their specialities inspires even the least motivated of students. I respect each Professor abd admire their dedication to education and scholarly research.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

My education was diverse and prepared me for many pathways in social work. Advising was included in field courses which is not the case in all universities. I started working the day after I graduated as I attended a career fair on campus that lead to my first placement. GO Owls!
