An Interview with the Provost
FDU Magazine recently caught up with University Provost Christopher A, Capuano, who discusses the strengths of FDU, the main challenges facing the University and what exactly it is that a provost does.


A Prescription for Making History
Combine a heavy dosage of innovative curricula with a rich blend of talented faculty and ambitious students and then mix together in a state-of-the-art facility and you have the dawn of a brand-new pharmacy school. Learn what makes this school unique and meet the students who are pioneers now and aim to be groundbreakers in their field.


The Consumer Culture
In this provocative piece, FDU professor James G. Hutton argues that the United States has become a culture of consumption, and the consumer mentality has undermined critical institutions. But the triumph of consumerism is not permanent, and Hutton offers solutions to restoring citizenship to its primary role. In an accompanying pictorial, FDU Magazine reveals another side of Hutton's creative process and his first love photojournalism.


Much Ado About Something
FDU student Bianca Cruz ventured to Wroxton College for a criminal justice study-abroad course and shares with readers her experiences at the college and her visits to nearby landmarks.
