3 College Freshman

Academics: I wish there were just regular people on this list besides the higher up in the town or country to be on this list. Regular people who donate are just as important.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drinking is noticeable but you just need to make the right decision for your life and not worry about anyone else.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I live in a sorority house and did get asked to be a member of this sorority for life. It was a dream for me to become a part of this life on campus.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Frats have a lot of parties but they are not a have to attend to fit in.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not lived off campus but it is available and several friends live off campus really closes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have lived in the dorms and in a sorority and they are both great

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation is easy all over the area

4 College Freshman

Computers: I have my own computer but you don't have to have one

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football and all other sports and clubs are attended by a lot of the students. I am a cheerleader and cheer for everything which is great.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received several scholarships and grants but still had to borrow quite a bit to cover my first year, that is why I am applying for more scholarships etc. Stetson University is my dream college and I look forward to my graduation .

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus safety work well. Though they are quick with emergency situations there is not a large amount employed. The campus "doctor" is awful. You have to wait two weeks to make an appointment and 3 out of 4 times you receive a wrong diagnosis. No immediate treatment/help available, they are not welcoming and are very expensive.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a lot of money

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Theyre strict on drinking here, It's limited to beer only, no liquor and no beer bongs.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm halls here are awful and disgusting. Its kind of ridiculous for the money it costs to go here.

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Got busted for alcohol twice in my dorm, give out parking tickets rampantly.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's alright, but a couple of my friends have had their cars broken into, and there were some muggings

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The nightlife here is pretty fun, especially with Byte opening, but it gets old because it's pretty repetitive.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The areas around town are sketchy and there aren't many choices aside from crappy houses

3 College Freshman

Academics: Class sizes are small so that's a plus, but the acedemics here are pretty hard depending on your major. Also, there are a lot of discussions in class worth grades and attendance is sometimes mandatory.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Theres a really diverse student population here. Lots of foreign athletes

5 Recent Alumnus

Computers: IT was always helpful. I had great internet in every dorm I lived in and the wireless access was great for even studying outside. No problems at all. I had some friends who only used the computer labs and found their way through school until they could afford a computer - it is doable!

Recent Alumnus

Transportation: The campus is too small to need transportation within it. There are zipcars but since I brought my own car with Freshman can do, unlike other campuses, there was no need.

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Students (especially females in Greek life) interact with Embry Riddle often. The location of the school is small and seems to be pretty quiet, which it is as the bar scene is pretty tame. However, you are close to Daytona and not far from Orlando and they are very quick drives. You can definitely have fun if you want. Whether you want a busy city or a house party I know there are things to do. Deland itself, always feels safe and allows you some nice strolls. I admit to missing it sometimes!

5 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: This school is excellent for scholarships. I denied loans and had work study. Everything ran smoothly for me, although I know that was not the case for everyone. Please realize it takes time and communication and that you have to be active about it, not thinking it will just all come together without your involvement.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
