4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The best part of our school is that we are on a huge lake so we have a beach on campus. There are also free activities for students like kayaking, wake boarding, sailing, and other water sports. You can always get out of class and go to the beach, or even study there.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Socially our town is a lot of old people and then our college is right in the middle of it.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Student life isn't crazy busy all the time but during the week, campus is pretty full of life. There's almost always some sort of event or seminar or fair going on that week. The library is really nice and organized and the usual place to study. There's a lot of green space and the grounds are really well kept up.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our buildings are really great. Several of the them are green buildings and the entire campus works hard to make as little impact on the environment as possible.

The FGCU campus is very clean and kept up very well. The campus is also very eco-friendly. There are recycling bins everywhere. Overall, the campus seems large in size, but that is only because it is spread out.

The buildings are very well maintained. There are many windows, so students can look outside at the beautiful scenery that the University offers. The insides of the buildings are not very hard to navigate. The outside, however, is a different story, but after about day three, it becomes easier to navigate through the campus. Just remember where you parked, and you will never get lost.

Urban Legends
There's a guy who wanders around campus day and night; he's known as "Shirtless John" because he owns only two shirts-one red, one yellow. But if he's not wearing one of those shirts, he's usually not wearing one at all!
