Florida Southern College is a unique college where the architecture is that of Frank Lloyd Wright and the atmosphere is one of welcoming and friendly once you are on campus. There is plenty to do and safety is a huge plus with their security presence. Besides that, it is a nice campus to be on and not to far from home.
It is a nice school, it just has it's downsides like other schools do. If you're looking for a party school, this is not the place. People don't do much unless they go out. Everyone is pretty friendly here, class size isn't too big, and there's definitely always something to do on campus. My complaints about the school and living in a dorm: the washers and dryers build up mold so fast. How am I supposed to wash my clothes when I don't even know if they're actually clean? Sharing bathrooms with other people is an absolute terror because some really just don't know how to clean up after themselves. The cost of books, absurd, and if you're a bio major like me there is no getting out of it. The books are created by the biology department so you can't find them anywhere else. The teachers cram like 4 weeks' worth of learning into two. Way too fast paced if you don't catch on quickly (I can barely keep up). The rooms echo so you can barely hear when a teacher speaks. I probably could keep going forever..... but the last thing I'm going to touch on is the parking situation. If you do not NEED a car, do not bring one here. Wasted $120 because I hardly ever get a spot. Is it a good school? Yes. They have good programs, good teachers, and good resources. Is there room for improvement? Absolutely. Suggestions- do your research on teachers. If you need real organization, find a teacher that will provide that. Become an honors student, there's many benefits and first pick on almost everything. If you're going to live on campus as a freshman, shoot for Barnett complex. Lastly, ask so many questions.
Overall, Florida Southern College is a great school. The academics are very broad with over 70 majors. The professors and staff members on campus are respectful and help the students out in anyway that they can. The campus is extremely beautiful with the buildings having historical meaning behind them. Florida Southern is an expensive school though and I do not recommend if you are a low income family.
Florida Southern College is exactly what I needed. I feel motivated and encouraged in the classroom. The students are friendly and I feel like I really belong here. The food in the caf is average, but they provide many diverse options including those for vegan and gluten free students. Overall, I feel welcome and wanted.

In my college experiemce I have learned more about myself than what I did inside the classroom. I have taken chances and am slowly starting to find out how I can be successful even though it had a rocky start. I believe that college, while it is time to set your life plan, is also a time to explore make mistakes and grow from them. Although my exeperience has not been that of a dream college I am slowly learning how to branch out and look for what I need to do on my own to make a college experience that fits what I want from college as well as provides a place that I am happy and that I can succeed both personally and academically.
Florida Southern College is well know for its beautiful campus, and small class size.
It's close to home, yet still far enough way. It's located in the heart of Florida so we can easily get to Tampa or Orlando.
I love the fact that the campus always seems to be "giving you a hug," that everyone is so friendly, and the fact that since it is a small school, you aren't just another number, you can actually build great relationships with your professors.
Someone who is looking for a small school where you know everyone.
The teachers become your collegues as you go along through your classes.
It doesn't have a football team.
Wonderfullly diversed and great about sharing cultural differences.
One who doesn't want to get involved. There are many activities, intramurals, greek life to keep one busy.
What i wanted out of life, as opposed to wanted to do with my degree
I think the only thing that is frustrating is the business office seems to be a bit difficult every now and then but besides that everything seems perfect.
Florida Southern College is a school that is continually growing and becoming more business-minded and practical.
