Alumni in Legislature
Many of FDU’s civically minded alumni have gone on to serve in government on the local, county and state levels. FDU Magazine reports on why they chose public service, what they have accomplished and their advice for today’s students.

FDU Partnewship with Zeppelin University
Meet FDU Student Raul Chalen, who studied abroad at Zeppelin University in Germany, and Tobias Lauter, a German student who came to FDU’s Metropolitan Campus, and learn about their impressions of studying across the Atlantic.

Workplace Matters: Dads Face Work-Life Issues
Professor of Management Scott Behson writes about work-life balance for men, the expectations fathers face and how they cope with working full time while trying to be hands-on parents.

FDU students and faculty together are tackling a wide range of research topics: from primate behavior to digital device forensics, and from the plea-bargaining process to accounting and personal storytelling.
