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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

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.
