Visiting, Touring, and NYC
Campus visits are crucial in determining which college to attend. Students know this, and they visit FDU with an eye toward many things: academic opportunities, student lifestyles, extracurricular activities. Parents also weigh the options when visiting colleges, although they are more often concerned with costs, transportation issues, and the general atmosphere of a campus. Students and parents should share their expectations and needs before and after they visit universities so that they can discuss topics openly. All parties should understand that there are many factors that determine the suitability of a college and that these factors often vary widely.
When you and your student visit FDU, take some time to relax. Explore our two campuses, and get to know the unique characteristics of each. Ask questions, and consider what sort of atmosphere and academic options best suit your student’s needs and desires. Take your time; get to know us. We welcome you wholeheartedly as a member of the FDU family, and we hope to see you soon.
New York City is famous, exciting, and justifiably legendary. No other city can match its mystique or glamour. FDU is fortunate to have such a thrilling neighbor.
Because FDU is located next door to New York City, our students can make connections that students in many other universities cannot. Proximity to the world capital of art, publishing, finance, and big business is just one of the perks of an FDU education, but it is a big one. Students often take advantage of this through internships, part-time jobs, or work-study experience. The diversity of New York is another plus; nowhere else can students find such an eclectic mix of cultures and so many opportunities to learn just by living.
When you come to visit FDU, make some time for a side-trip into the city. Explore the restaurants, do some shopping, take in a show, or just wander the storied streets.
