5 College Senior

Academics: I have never been more attended to, as a student, than I am at this school. I love it.

4 College Senior

Academics: Great programs with great professors. No complaints.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Beautiful location and place to live. I love it.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There are all types of students from all over. I have personally had at least 2 foreign students with either varying nationalities or languages in every one of my classes. I love the diversity of my school. It's the one thing I truly enjoy about being a student there. It's a huge melting pot.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I don't personally watch or participate in sports, but I know that a majority of my colleges teams are nationally ranked and I always see them practicing any time I pass any type of playing field, be it outside or on the basketball court.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: No campus food is good. I feel if more practical and familiar, yet healthy options were made available, I would eat on campus more.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Most non-Greeks love the fraternities, the women Greek groups are seen as the snobby or clique groups because some only hang out with Greek affiliated individuals.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small so the teachers do have time for you.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career center is open everyday for students who need resume help, scholarship help, or interview help.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Involvement during intramural sports is great, 70% of the school gets involved.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Tutus and the gym is very popular during the school year. Campus activities are popular in the beginning of the school year and then fade in the end.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Many different options to choose as a major or a minor. Some professors are better than others, some professors you question how they were even hired and are a still a teacher after their poor student reviews. Workload is hefty if you are not used to studying hard and the transition from high school to college workload is rough depending on the selected major.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Love my teachers in the biology department, they definitely make time for you.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Food is okay, depends on where you go and what is being served. Find something you like and stick with it for the next four years.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Not interested in parties, I stick to my schoolwork and on campus job.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It is very easy to be involved in a program that is within your major.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Meetings are usually scheduled once a week at a certain time.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many different affiliations between race, political views, and religious beliefs; however, a majority are republican supporters. Economical background diversity is very little, not many students are open to discuss their financial status.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not been able to live off campus since students are only allowed to house in school owned apartments which are restricted to the juniors and seniors. Cost, proximity to campus, and included appliances vary between each off campus housing apartment.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Students trend between fraternity and sorority shirts and logos, and trends such as lilly pulitzer, and yacht club-ish attire.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The water dorm splash looks like fun and the athletic events are awesome!

3 College Junior

Nightlife: The students have a positive impact on each other.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I have always felt safe on campus and enjoy living around my friends. JR and Spivey were the best dorms.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I like to attend the political events on campus and everyone seems to get along.

3 College Junior

Academics: There is some study abroad trips but not as much as I would like to see. The majors list is not very big because we are a small school. I enjoy my friends in my major but I wish there were more people.

Students have to be open to the help and advice that is offered at FSC; it's easy when the professors' enthusiasim is contagious. The small community holds options for recent graduates to obtain jobs because the area is riddled with alumni who are more than willing to help out an FSC graduate. Although the amount of different social and academic groups may be fewer than what is available in a larger school, students have many more opportunities to hold leadership positions and gain experience through clubs. The smaller size also gives students more opportunities to participate in campus events, such as free Chick-Fil-A chicken biscuits on certain Fridays.

FSC is unique because of the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. A point of pride at the school, the buildings have a sense of prestige because they are all exquisite. The absence of bland, boring buildings makes the environment for learning much more appealing. FSC is distinguished as one of the top 10 most beautiful schools in the nation for a reason.
