Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2008
"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."

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2017
"This is a fantastic school to start out in! The campus is beautiful and the environment really is conducive to learning. Being a newer school, the facilities are fresh and clean. There's many resources all over campus which you can use from academic help to personal health. The class sizes are very manageable. Everything you need can be found through gulfline and if you have questions people are available to help."
