3 College Senior

Diversity: Campus is very diverse with many different religious, political clubs, ethnic/racial, sexual orientation groups on campus.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: Campus dining is expensive and not anything I couldn't make in my microwave.

Overall Experience: As long as you are involved and get to know your professors they will be helpful and can even bump up grades at the end of the semester if necessary

Overall Experience: The school is getting bigger and gaining more recognition so the value of a degree here will only grow.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life at FGCU is not discriminatory at all like I've seen at other schools, people of all types are accepted and I've never had a negative experience

Campus Strictness: I live off-campus so I am not as familiar with administration policies but I have never had a negative experience myself.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Basketball has gotten school spirit to an all time high, but that being said, I think a football team would greatly improve student moral!

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Great for families or older singles, there isn't much do do other than go to the beach and work

1 College Senior

Nightlife: Other than college night on Thursdays, Gulf Coast Town Center, near FGCU's campus is dead and when there are events covers and drink charges are ridiculous.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Plenty of people to get along with.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is okay.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There have been times when you see Greek Life doing something on campus like holding a fundraiser or drive for an organization or the community. Greeks do not get special housing on campus, it is common for them to live off campus together.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone is different. There is an abundance of diversity and everyone is pretty much accepting.

Many FGCU students like the University, for the most part. Involvement in activities is often key. Getting involved in organizations like intramural sports and attending campus events are two great ways to make friends on campus. You come to the school not knowing anyone, but it's up to you to make that change. However, one drawback that students note is that some FGCU students still act like they are in high school, having their own little groups and cliques. Either way, it's good to remember that your college experience is up to you. Other students will tell you that they couldn't imagine themselves anywhere else!

Although Florida Gulf Coast University is often considered a very small school with not much going on, many learn to love the tight-knit homeyness of it. Fort Myers may not be a vast metropolis with a lot to do, but there is still plenty to get involved with on campus; plus, Fort Myers does have a variety of places to eat at. Overall, the campus is clean, and for a young school, is growing every day. FGCU is a great school for any freshman to start at or for any transfer student to transfer to.
