| I was a nondegree student taking graduate classes in the math department. Most of the classes were good, classes were small (like 15 kids) and professors graded papers themselves. Professors were very nice and willing to get to know me on a personal level. However, homework and exams were quite trivial, and graduate classes here would probably be like upper division undergrad classes at most other schools.|
Social life was relatively lacking here. Most of the students in my department either did not speak English or were 30-40 year olds going back to school. Most of the clubs here are cultural or religious organizations, and there isn't much to do around the area either. There are good restaurants though, if you have a car.Also, never take math classes outside the math department, if you do be prepared for a ton of bullshit.

| The administration is rude and does not care about the students. Most of them are even unaware of some of their own policies. The grades do not reflect at all what students do and do not know. The grades are inflated with extra credit, that students do not even work for. The grading systems are often arbitrary and completely subjective. Thank god I will be evaluated by nation wide standardized testing that IS NOT written by FAU, when I finish. One of many examples I can give is when my organic chemistry lab had an "OPTIONAL" meeting for students to ask questions about their grade. I find out people who showed up got 15 points of extra credit. I did not show up because I did not have questions about my grade and obviously because we were not told about the extra credit. These points would have increased my grade from a B to an A. When meeting with the course administrator I was told that "it's my problem." This is after I told her I would do an extra assignment to earn those points unlike some of my peers who blindly and serendipitously walked into some extra credit points. |
