Florida Gulf Coast University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
I am currently enrolled in the Fall semester at Ave Maria School of Law. Before taking on this journey, I graduated with a Bachelors in Science from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2012. I graduated at the age of 22 with a 2 year old and a 10 month old. The university did a great job at assisting me complete my degree with no set backs. The number of classes that were available online allowed me to fulfill my duties and responsibilities as a mother and still pursue my academic goals. There was also a number of scholarship opportunities that helped me financially. I am eternally grateful for the vast amount of opportunities that were available to me as a single mother.
Florida Gulf Coast University is wonderful school, environmentally friendly, and a tight knit community. FGCU has implemented new technologies and regulations to commit to ways that we can all help the environment. The class sizes are smaller, making it easy to have closer relationships with your professors. The professors are very approachable , they have given me the tools I need to assist me with reaching my goals not only in the academic world but also in the real world. The faculty has gone above and beyond to help me with furthering my education. They have given advice and proof read papers. If I did not do well on a test I had the opportunity to go over it with a professor so that I could do better next time. Without their help I would not be where I am now. After graduating I have kept in contact with my professors and they have continued to help me with my plans for graduate school. I have made lifelong relationships with the faculty.
Florida Gulf Coast University is a great school that offered extensive assistance and knowledge regarding my degree and course scheduling. Each of my professors in the psychology program provided personal and professional insights which sparked interest in class, as well as emphasizing the relationship between the course and the work place.
Florida Gulf Coast University was a great school that provided the perfect tools, help and teachers to help students in achieving their goals in life and their future careers. The campus is beautiful and large and offers lots of room for extracurricular activities. I am now confident going into graduate school because of Florida Gulf Coast University.
I really enjoyed the Legal Studies program at Florida Gulf Coast University. I believe it has adequately prepared me for law school and the legal profession in general. The professors are knowledgeable and are always willing to help. I have also had many networking opportunities, which are very valuable in the legal field.
I attended Florida Gulf Coast University initially because it was close to home and I was able to live with my parents and commute to school. FGCU has many campus clubs and activities to join/attend. One of the major clubs to be active in is the dirty birds, this is a basketball student association which hosts many fun events. Campus is clean with a friendly environment overall. There are not many professors because this is a small University so classes fill very quickly so be sure to register ASAP when enrollment opens. I currently am attending FGCU once again to complete my Masters degree and would not if this wasn't a great school.
My thoughts on this college is positive. It is a state university with high regards to having a Eco-friendly campus. It has a diversity of majors to choose from with a very passionate faculty staff to help students achieve their goals. It also has a Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business Accreditation which is one of the most utmost known accreditation on a global scale for business schools.
FGCU is an excellent school, providing extensive opportunities for students both inside and outside the classroom. After their Cinderella story performance in the NCAA basketball tournament the school has certainly gained traction and become far more attractive of an option for potential students. Thankfully with this increase in exposure the school has received more money, which they have happily been allocating across the campus to improve or build new facilities.
My college was fairly new (<10 years old) at the time I attended. Therefore, it was still a small school and didn't have all the bells and whistles of an established school (football team, big Greek life, etc). I think I got a good education there and enjoyed my time at FGCU.
Rapidly growing school, but environmentally conscious. Dorms are apartment style, and offer amenities like a resort. FGCU offers small class sizes. Average class size is around 35 students.
