Helpful Hints for International Students
One of Fairleigh Dickinson’s greatest assets is its physical proximity to one of the most multicultural and influential cities in the world – New York City.
Easily accessible by car, bus or train, the city is within easy reach of both the Florham Campus and especially Metropolitan Campus, and FDU students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the vast educational, cultural and social opportunities the city affords. Whether it’s simply seeing the sights on a day off, or advancing a career in international relations through FDU’s Ambassadors’ Club program at the United Nations, together FDU and New York City offer a truly unique educational and living experience.
