I am a Floridian, and I think FAU isn't such a bad school to attend. The professors love me because I actually try and I like visiting them during office hours. Even if I don't understand what the professor is lecturing, I go to tutoring. That is the good part. The bad part is how early the food court closes (7 pm Mon-Thur, 5 pm on Fridays, closed on Sundays). That is ridiculous. I would just walk to the cafeteria, but it's pretty far and you have to pay before you enter (mind you, I just want to microwave/eat my OWN food from home).

Yes, I will admit parking is ridiculous, but that's how it is at most colleges. I went to another school before FAU and parking was the SAME: VERY MINIMAL. What do I do about it? I just come to school at 7:30 am so I don't have to worry like everyone else.

Before you come to FAU, think about this: do you want a good education or do you just want to party? if you just want to party, go to another school, but if you want to gain some knowledge, come to FAU. Let's face it, partying doesn't look as good on a resume as a degree does.

responseI'm confused. You claim that the "good part" is that you visit professors during office hours. Then you rate "Faculty Accessibility" as "D "… did you randomly click things?
questionWhat if you want to party AND get a good education? What would you recommmend?
responseThere are plenty of places to do that on and around campus: University Commons, Night Owl, Mizner, Irishmen, Boca Raton Town Center, and so many more.
