Extremely affordable. Teachers are great. Campus in Daytona is very nice and a good size. Incredibly flexible! Many campuses all around florida and they offer a wide variety of courses. Go here to take advantage of the incredibly low tuition and take as many classes as you want/ take classes you are interested in taking because the college is very flexbile (although do this soon because they are starting to crack down on unnecessary enrollment).

Do not waste your time here! First off, the party scene is awful! Clubs are trash and not many bars worth going to. Go here to figure out what you want to do in life, and learn as much as you can/ meet as many people as possible. Don't waste your time on drugs and partying because you will be disappointed and left with nothing afterwards.

I'm going here to complete general credits in order to transfer to the university of my choice. I dual enrolled here for senior year and it is a great program. The high schools in Volusia county are not great, so many students with a high enough GPA and means to get to the college campus dual enroll. They earn college and high school credit at the same time. Plus it's free! If you go to a public school, there is a book voucher for free books. If you are in a private school/ homeschooled you have to pay for books. There a multiple campuses ( it used to be a community college) and now they have four year degree programs too. It serves its purpose for me - which is just a diving board into the full "college experience" at a four-year private college which I will be going to. Classes were not too challenging for me but that varies obviously per student. Most important things are : Don't get books right away unless you know for sure the professor will use them. I bought a general psychology book that we never used. Ask your friends if they already have the book too. Rent books from the book store if possible ( don't forget to return them!) or get them at chegg.com / amazon. Ask professor about the editions they use because sometimes older editions have the same information. Before classes start I recommend going to the campus ( whichever it is) and looking around. The Daytona Beach campus can be confusing. Also, administration staff at the Daytona campus are rude. You can sign up for classes at any campus, I signed up at the Deland campus and they were much friendlier.

The Quanta courses are great. Socializing, planning, discussing, presenting, and relaxing to watch a movie with all the class mates and your groups was my favorite experience. The honors program had three professors per level. Quanta 1 {level 1} was a combination of three classes merged into a three hour class. The professors wanted us to address them by their first names so everyone was comfortable and friendly. Frank was hilarious and very likable, gave great feedback on essays, and had advice that was helpful with every class. Maggie had insight on some religious and cultural perspectives along with literature. She was the research nazi and was quite strict. Ben was clever, keen, and developed intriguing questions that got gears moving. He assisted us with critical thinking about subjects and helped us break things down, analyze, and look for things that stood out.
