What is your overall opinion of this school?

Florida Gulf Coast provides opportunities live and grow. It has a small population but brings people closer and provides more experiences with the residents and professors. You have the option to live alone as a freshman, class sizes are smaller than normal (STELLAR!!), and everything is affordable when it comes to meal plans, dorms, and tuition.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

FGCU is a lovely school. It has a very beautiful, eco-friendly campus. The classes are small and everyone is encouraged to participate. This is the school I want to go to. After my first visit there, I was in love with the school. I met with a few students and they told me about FGCU. It sounds like a perfect fit for me and I really want to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school has a lot of involvement and professors constantly trying to help. There are some professors in the College of Arts and Sciences that do not do as good a job as they should. Advising is always available. The campus is beautiful with plenty of parking. The food is very good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Florida Gulf Coast University is a great school for those who are looking for a smaller, but not too small, university. It has grown significantly within the past few years, and they are always trying to accommodate the growing student body. The university offers many opportunities for all kinds of students, staff, and volunteers. One of the best attributes of Florida Gulf Coast University is the care, effort, education offered, and passion about the environment the institution has.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a relatively medium-sized school. Do not come here if you are expecting huge diversity. The people are fake, on-campus housing is expensive, the science classes are very difficult, there is nothing to do outside of the campus, the shops and centers close early, there is a lack of variety of on-campus restaurants. Keep this in mind if you are thinking of applying to FGCU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Florida Gulf Coast University is a beautiful university that provides all of the amenities within a few steps where ever you are. The classes are amazing and the restaurants on campus every one loves. The library is a large space of peace and quiet, and there's a Starbucks right next to it so that makes everything better. The on-campus housing is amazing and is some of the best housing in all of the state universities. The off-campus housing is also amazing, and is right next to a shopping plaza that includes a Target. The community is always open and friendly and there is never a dull moment on campus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Florida Gulf Coast University is an up and coming school that is well designed with plenty to do. The school is big on student involvement and between the sports, clubs, and weekly activities there is enough going on to keep everyone with different interests interested. While FGCU doesn’t have major college sports teams; besides our basketball team which is excellent, all the games are interactive and fun to go to. Student involvement is only one of the many things that FGCU is big on another topic that I would like to hit would be how fantastic they are about keeping you on track with your goal or even helping you set a goal when it comes to your academic career. The advisors at FGCU are some of the best that I’ve ever encountered. They make you feel important and that your success is their success. From helping you choose classes to working out a perfect schedule that best fits your needs, even helping you choose a major, the advisors at FGCU have all the bases covered. So far I’ve talked about student involvement and academic success so now I’m going to jump into student living. Florida Gulf Coast University offers a wide range of student living from off campus to on. Two of the on campus living options include South Village and North Lake. Freshman tend to stay in South village tends to house freshman and North Lake is usually upper classmen. The dorms are pretty clean and if you’re lucky enough then you will get to live in eagle or osprey hall which are some of FGCU’s newest dorms. Off campus options include West Lake, Coastal, and The Reef. It can be pricey for living but it’s very nice. These are some of the most important parts of FGCU and overall I believe that it’s a very decent school with good student life and academic involvement. I would highly recommend Florida Gulf Coast University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Florida Gulf Coast is a great and safe community. It features a beautiful campus and is home to all sorts of wildlife you can see on campus. It is conveniently located near a mall and has plenty of things to do. The academics and people within the college thrive. I wish the school had a color guard within a marching band, I would be set with this, but they do not. However, they just created a football team, and maybe that's the next project.
