Many people would consider FAU as an underdog compared to the other huge universities in Florida. While our football team may not be the best and our campus may be smaller, what many don't realize is that our school's simplicity is exactly why we love it here. Located in Boca Raton and just minutes from the beach, FAU offers students an ideal balance of a fun, active college-life and a peaceful, laid back, South Florida life. Here are a few things FAU students do best.
