Florida Southern College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Florida Southern College. The institution provided a very warm, inviting environment, whereby learning was exciting and fun. The student-to-teacher ratio was small enough, so that we received individualized attention, when necessary. The camaraderie was great, and by graduation, I felt that I had gained more family members than friends. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and I would recommend this institution to anyone seeking the feel of a small university with large opportunities for growth and great experiences.
Great small, close-knit campus. Campus is beautiful and attractive. There is plenty of student involvement, although most of the focus is on athletics and Greek life. Not too far from cities such as Tampa or Orlando. Plenty of resources to discover .
Florida Southern was a good school overall. The professors really care about you and the classroom size is small enough for you to get one-on-one attention. The Junior Journey travel experience and guaranteed internship were both really important to my college experience, and I was able to begin my career after graduation with my internship provider. I commuted for four years, but by almost all of my peers hated living on campus because of the party environment and poor maintenance. Also, the school is extremely expensive if you don't have good scholarships.
Florida Southern is a nice small college in a cute little town. I enjoyed having plenty of one on one time with my professors and felt like most of them really cared about having their students learn the material. The dorm rooms after the first year were kind of cramped, however, and there were several times within the year that someone would be playing music obnoxiously loud at midnight during the week. I think I probably could have received just as good of an education elsewhere, with less student loan debt, but I enjoyed my time there, at least.
I loved my education and time at Florida Southern, but in the professional world, I feel I was left struggling. I went to FSC for the small school environment, but I now feel that I fell through the cracks and became unnoticed. I was moderately active at school and in talking to my teachers, but when it came to my internship, I was set up with a poor match. When it came to support from my school for finding a job, I did the work at the Career Center, but was never paired up with any jobs.
