| Like most others have said the education is great, but the college life is pretty lame. I have some of the best teachers I've ever had, I'm a transfer student so I know what college life is like and have visted many of my friends at other schools. This is not a party school at all. It is a dry school, no booze what so ever. If you have a cool RA they wont write you up if you are drinkin in your room with a few friend playing cards, but forget parties or even drinking in the common room. Almost everyone goes home on the weekend so again not much to do. NYC is close enough, but if you are a freshman there isn't much for you to do under the age of 21 in NYC. |
On a plus side, the education is awesome, if you have a problem just call the school and get a person not a machine. It is amazing how much the people at this school are willing to work for you to help you reach your goals. I think this is a great school for a transfer student looking for a great education and a degree. But freshman I'd look at other schools just because I feel the parties and good times are part of what you learn in college and FDU really doesn't have that.

| I have been to both campus and each i see different.|
Madison: I went my first 3 years to Madison.It is a very nice looking school, but the teaching is not the best. The professors are not very helpful and try to teach as fast as possible. They don't take the time to stop and help people who need more attention and it seems like its a hassle to help. There are only 4 buildings in the whole campus for learning. mostly all dorms. It really is lacking substance. Activities seemed forced. It is very dead. Not commuter friendly. Its enclosed in like a community type and you must have a car to get to the surrounding cities so you if you need something and you can't leave you have to settle for wat is on campus. I didn't live on campus but i felt totally trapped to what Madison offered. At the same time, the majority of students there were recent HS grads starting college ready to party and drink all the time and it seemed like HS w/ dorms. very not educational
Teaneck: I am at Teaneck now and am very satisfied and love it. It is more commuter friendly and also the majority of the students are graduates and commuters or adults that are going back to college, which usually means that they are more serius about class. The professors are so much more helpfull and willing to help. FDU prides itself in global education and the Teaneck campus defintiely fulfills their word. Teaneck is very diverse and you feel like its the real world were you meet different people. You can walk down the block to a store to buy food and everything is city like. there are about 8 building more than 3 stories high. The Metro campus really does bring out what a university should be.FDU is very high priced. They do offer financial aid to many people and willing to help you out. My best bet is to go to Teaneck. If you are seriuos about your education and need an environment that helps you succeed, Teaneck is the place to go. Sorry Madison, your just a frat campus.
