Computers: The school offers computers to check out but I would rather bring my own, but are supplied if needed

5 College Sophomore

Academics: very good my school offers a wide selection and is used very effectively

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: very good although I don't live near the campus it is still recourse full

3 College Senior

Computers: Network speed and wireless accessibility are probably the worst things in terms of how the system works. Other than that, everything works very well

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Food is average. It's not the greatest food in the world but it is edible and occasionally enjoyable to eat.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Frequently the nightlife is quiet, spent in the dorms. Sometimes the students will go out for something to eat at a late night restaurant

3 College Senior

Diversity: There is a fairly significant amount of diversity. Individuals from all ethnic backgrounds are present here and even some individuals from other countries.

4 College Senior

Parking: Parking is not a problem at school. Each person has their own assigned spot and everyone adheres to their spot without issue

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never felt in danger while on this campus. And although I don't get out at night to see the security guards, I kow that they are there protecting us.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I love student life here on campus. Everyone is so friendly and wants to get to know each other.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The social scene at school is great. You always have something to do with someone even when you're not looking for something to do.

3 College Senior

Athletics: They are very exciting games to attend but I don't focus only on them while at school

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I would say that ninety-nine percent of the student body lives on campus. Upper division students are free to live off campus and do so through their own means.

5 College Freshman

Academics: While Florida College is a small school they do offer several four year degree programs including Business, Music, Communication, Bible, and several others. The work load is very difficult. The school advisors encourage students to take as many hours as possible in order to maximize your time with the school. The business program is very involved in providing students with both an education and internships.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The classes are difficult. The faculty at FC strives to provide the best education possible, and that means lots of work, work, and more work. Professors at FC don't just want you to pass the test, they want you to learn. They are very involved with the students, providing tutoring, offices hours and extra credit opportunities. Rather than just being a lecturer in the class room, the professors are mentors and friends that are there to serve the student.

The curriculum at FC is very strenuous. It involves the student both in and out of the classroom and demands diligence. Having taking classes at a local college near my home I found Florida College to be more difficult.

College Freshman

Transportation: Being a small school we don't need campus transportation.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The administration at Florida College is very proactive in providing the best college experience possible. Drugs and alcohol are strictly prohibited. Dorms are monitored at all times and curfew is at 11 pm on week nights, midnight on weekends. While it may seem like they go to great lengths, and yes, curfew is annoying at times, I would honestly not want it any other way. The school provides a safe, fun, and wholesome environment for students to learn and experience college life.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: Being a school of only 500 students, we don't really have a need for campus police or a large health center. We have a couple of night guards and one nurse.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls at Florida College love enjoying good, wholesome social activities. From going to the beach, to checking out downtown Tampa, or just jamming out in a band, you will find it all at FC. The school is really diligent to provide a fun, drug and alcohol free learning environment. Its great to be able to enjoy a great campus, fantastic faculty, and so many friends without substance and alcohol abuse.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Last year the computers were very slow! This year I have seen an improvement due to a large number of complaints and the computer labs are usually not packed since most students have their own computers. Some times are more crowded than others.

Most students who come to FC are glad they made the decision to go and would do it all over again if they were given another chance. Those who come here are looking for a spiritual environment and are happy with the conservative nature of the school. The spiritual focus of the teachers, the classes, the daily chapel services, and the extracurricular activities all help students aim for more than a good grade in a course. Students are encouraged to do their best in all things because, as Christians, all they do, they do for Christ.

While FC is not perfect, the school makes a lasting impact on most of its students. Those who come to Florida College are often looking for a haven from the world where they can grow spiritually and be challenged academically. At FC, they find an environment that helps them face the world again and meet the trials of life with renewed energy and strength when they leave. The teachers see their students not just as those who are learning at their feet, but also as brothers and sisters in Christ. As a result, the teachers are more than mere professors; they become close to their students. Students have a bond with each other that is based on more than merely having attended the same college for a couple of years. Their bond is one that is based on the knowledge that they are striving for the same goal of seeing a common Father in heaven one day. The friends made at FC truly do last a lifetime.
