3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: only ate their once but it was delicious.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: i dont go there yet its July

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is no where near the amount you need to cover tuition, but the process was easy.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It is a great program but it has a lot of requirements that take the space of the requirements i need for vet school.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Lots of little shops and restaurants and they are all easily accessible by bike,

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: downtown has some really delicious places and its worth checking out, just not something to fit into the weekly budget of a college student

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: if youre doing something you shouldnt be doing all I have to say is dont get caught and dont be stupid

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: it can get a little monotonous if youre only going to the greek parties but there are a lot of other options like house parties, the bars, or even going to daytona or orlando for a night trip.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I know a lot of people off campus and its definitely the way to go as you move into upperclassman status

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: since we just got football theres a big emphasis on our equipment which was just rennovated last year. overall good quality if youre looking to work out frequently. we have a great pool to swim in or tan by, great places to run and lots of fields

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: theres diversity.. but then there isnt diversity... It all depends on where you look. From the outside Stetson looks like a homogenous group of preppy rich kids but that is far from the truth there are so many different types of people from different walks of life its what college is all about!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: perfect for me, It all depends on what youre looking for but you can find a schedule and courseload that works best for you.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: love the psych department! we have some wonderful and inspiring professors. They seem to be moving people around quite a bit and theres an intense number of adjuncts that come and go.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: like every school I suppose there are teachers you do and dont get along with. During my first year I experienced nothing but the best teachers (except for one or two) and I was fully engaged and challeneged by their courses. The most important thing is to get the opinions of people who have had the teacher before, but take their opinion lightly not everyone agrees on a teacher!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Stetson is highly regarded in Florida, so if youre looking to start your career in state it is probably the way to go. Out of state however the school doesnt have much of a reputation so if you go here you need to make a name for yourself

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Stetson is amazing at giving out scholarships the only problem is mantaining them. Sometimes they can be a lure to get you to attend the school so you must be an avid advocate for yourself in the financial aid department to make sure they dont screw you the following year.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I havenĀ“t had an internship yet but I do plan on having one in the near future. It is very easy to connect with local places, or even in orlando in daytona. Not sure how helpful the department is because I havent had to deal with them yet but if you want to start something on campus even you can get internship credit for that too if it applies.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: As psychology programs go this one is just like the rest. No extra hurdles to cross, but once youre in its not always the easiest to stay in.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Theres a "type" for everyone! we have a thriving greek life if you like the preppy side, a lot of sports teams, some very smart and cute geeky kids, an amazing music school with equally amazing looking students, an arts school with some of the coolest kids.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: theres always somewhere to go and something to do. a lot of people complain about the size of campus but I think its perfect! especially if you want to get involved

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: a lot of the buildings are newly rennovated or are getting rennovated in the next few years. Aside from the pet friendly dorms buildings are always clean, spacious, and have acceptable common rooms

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Don't know much about it

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I dont live on campus, so I cant answer this.

4 College Senior

Majors: The business school is pretty good for the most part. Some classes are pointless, however, because they won't all be used in the future.

5 College Senior

Majors: Its very easy to switch in and out of whatever major you choose. You just have to fill out a document. There are advisors to help you through the whole process of choosing a different major and filling out the form.

The overall experience of Stetson University can be described as intimate. The campus itself isn't big, so of course that has its pros and cons. The pros: Students get to know one another well, and finding and walking to classes are easy. Of course, if it's a really rainy or hot day, then it can be a hassle. However, with a small campus, students are able to get to know their professors well, which is great. On the downside, if you miss a class, the professor will notice. Some professors here will curve grades based on attendance. Another contributing factor of the overall experience is the small class size. Small class sizes are nice for those who like it, but they correlate with a higher tuition rate.

However, for every pro, there is a con of some sort. The overall experience will differ for each student. Some move on to other universities; others like it here and stay. It all comes down to whether a student will take the good with the bad. Since Stetson is always looking to improve, the school generally will listen. Since it will listen, the bad things about Stetson become tolerable and make it a decent school all around. Plus, the location of the University is pretty good since it's located between Orlando and Daytona Beach. The best advice for anyone interested in attending Stetson is that it's important to get to know the University a little bit by coming here, doing the tour, and most importantly, talking to the current students. That will make things a heck of a lot easier in deciding whether Stetson is the place for you.
