Overall Experience: The professors are always there for the students. The class sizes are smaller so it allows for personal relationships with the student and teacher. The teachers make it fun and utilizes the nature of the campus as well.

Health & Safety: There are always places for students to go if they have gone through sexual assault. Security is around all of the time, police monitors campus. I always felt safe walking to and from class and running at night for my exercise

Campus Housing: North lake village is beautiful, I lived right on the waterfront and I was close to campus. I would walk from my apartment to class everyday using the boardwalks through the nature. The fresh,an housing is great too, you can take a shuttle to and from class.

Greek Life: It was a great experience and good way to get to know people. No matter if you are Greek or not, everyone gets along. If you are in Greek life, you can live anywhere on campus.

Overall Experience: FGCU was incredible and I wouldn't change a thing about it. I lived on the waterfront in the North Lake Village dorms and it was amazing. I was a RA with the housing department and it was the best experience I could have had. Greek life was a big part of my college career as well.

Athletics: The basketball team has become the most popular sport at FGCU and the students are very spirited. All of the athletes no matter what sport, is very successful and puts all their effort into their performance and it shows during the games.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: health services pretty far away

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A lot of unmotivated Floridian children who are more interesting in getting high and going to Rusty's than actually putting in work for their future and career. Drug ring problems, alcoholics, etc...... Campus and school originally a commuter school and well, sorry to say that it should have stayed that way.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Pretty bad. NLV is old and well worn, been used pretty hard by the time I moved in. Many drug busts and illegal drinking. Not to mention how the RAs aren't respected, pretty sad how they do not have any authority. People get pets, such as dogs, cats, and bunnies, which is against code and a punishable action. No parking especially on basketball game days when the Police clear out all the lots for gray haired fans and there is no where to park.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Annoying frat and srat members in monogrammed clothes that say 'like" every other word. They think the world revolves around them.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: As a student athlete FGCU is not fully funded. Lots of inadequate funding. From team budgets, to puny study hall facilities, to having to share the weight room with the rest of the student body,FGCU does not have a chance to ever compete with the best of the best. We will always be one hit wonders

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Huge Drug problem. Centered around drinking. Inactive unmotivated students who are lazy and just scraping by in the classrooms. Physical campus is too small for the current population. No parking, floods whenever it rains, pretty bland. Don't come here

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school tries to set students up for success

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many FGCU students like the University, for the most part. Involvement in activities is often key. Getting involved in organizations like intramural sports and attending campus events are two great ways to make friends on campus. You come to the school not knowing anyone, but it's up to you to make that change. However, one drawback that students note is that some FGCU students still act like they are in high school, having their own little groups and cliques. Either way, it's good to remember that your college experience is up to you. Other students will tell you that they couldn't imagine themselves anywhere else!

Although Florida Gulf Coast University is often considered a very small school with not much going on, many learn to love the tight-knit homeyness of it. Fort Myers may not be a vast metropolis with a lot to do, but there is still plenty to get involved with on campus; plus, Fort Myers does have a variety of places to eat at. Overall, the campus is clean, and for a young school, is growing every day. FGCU is a great school for any freshman to start at or for any transfer student to transfer to.
