At first, the facilities at Eckerd may appear outdated in terms of building styles and living quarters, but although it’s not attractive in an Ivy League sense, there is a certain charm here. The campus' main perks include the natural beauty and the fact that most of the campus is outside, which means students can always enjoy the great weather and beautiful Florida sunshine. Space-wise, it’s a fairly large campus but everything is very conveniently and centrally located (except Sigma), and it doesn’t take more than 10 to 15 minutes to walk to anywhere on campus.
There is no large student center on campus, but there is no lack of places for students to hang out on campus, from the outdoors to Triton's Pub, which has a large-screen TV, free video games, and plenty of tables. Eckerd’s new fitness center is certainly an improvement over the old one, but it is still a bit small, especially if you go in the afternoon or evening. Overall, the facilities at Eckerd are pretty standard and nothing to write home about, but they are functional and aren’t a huge source of complaints.
