FPU has a top quality faculty in almost every field with a great deal of diversity of interests which allows every student the chance to find a Professor that they can bond and work with on their interests.
This is a University in a very rural area so if you are a person that needs to be close to urban activity FPU is not for you. However if you are one for the outdoors and beautiful scenery in all seasons this is it.
Yes, College is about academics and learning and that was great at FPU. It may not have the best reputation and statistics, but that is because some students don't take it seriously. If you want a great education the faculty here will give it to you I promise you that.
