A lot of the faculty have been very helpful in that they give you tips on resume writing. They give you tips on cover letter writing. They're here for us. They want us to succeed.
One thing I really love about FDU is that professors really do care a lot, and they really are trying to get students more involved and push them a little bit harder.
I've never had better professors, teachers, in my entire learning experience. They understand and learn about you not as a number in a classroom; they know you as an individual learner. So they have the ability to understand your strengths and weaknesses and work with that and work with you to be the best you can be.
The small class sizes, the personal relationship that faculty have with students allows faculty to really understand what motivates students to help them perhaps consider specific job paths or career paths that they would have not considered. Those are the types of things you can only really understand once you get to know the students at a personal level.
You're going to have a teacher who is very highly respected in the field or in a number of different fields, but they also have that ability to be able to relate to your experiences as a student.
The Honors Program is great. Students that are in it do get more opportunity, so they're made aware of more internships, study abroad opportunities, potential jobs.
The goal is 100% placement. My office is fully committed. We have the support of the dean, the faculty and the administration, and everyone's really here to support your success.
So the educational experience I've had FDU has definitely helped me grow as a person. I'm definitely not the same person I was as when I came here my freshman year, and I hope that it's going to motivate me to continue growing even after I leave.
FDU is about one on one relationships, and it accomplishes that through very small class size and an emphasis on advising and the advising relationship. And that's what makes FDU special.
