Understanding that health and wellness are vital to academic success, FAU offers a wide range of resources including award-winning peer education and health promotion programs. In addition to its facilities and classes, Campus Rec hosts intramural and club sports, as well as an outdoor adventures program that takes students on excursions throughout the country.
More than 70 percent of FAU's 30,000 students take classes at FAU's first and largest campus and the majority of the University's 175+ degree programs are based here. Located just three miles from the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful beaches of Boca Raton, the campus features everything you expect from a modern university -- suite-style housing for nearly 4,000 students, brand-new athletics and recreational facilities, art galleries, a cafe/movie theater complex and so much more -- all in a vibrant, tropical setting with a student body that is the most diverse of all of Florida's public universities.
Great university, I believe just some teachers should have been sanctionned or removed when they are repeatedly on academic probabtion.
i have only study one month online course at Atlantic International University but i cant continue to afford the payment, AIU is a very good university .
Florida Atlantic is a good choice for students who are planning to commute but not live on campus. The cost of living is Boca is far too high and the financial aid offered probably won't cover all your expenses.
