5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Attending this school was the best decision I ever made.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's okay in general, if it was going to be better, the COPS should spend less time giving parking tickets and more time actually interacting with the students, creating a positive vibe and establishing trust with the student and faculty body.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are well taught, you must go to class to get the full meaning from them and full understanding.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: After you get out of here, you must look into the community and see how your degree can be used, it would be helpful to get a marketable degree like biomedical engineer or architect. Something that the community needs.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It could have been better, the general SOVI area is too sequestered away from everything else.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: It's alright in the sense that it needs more levels than 1. Usually the athletes are in using the equipment and its reserved for them during almost all day.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Just like all schools it is what you make it! The experience can be worthwhile if you enjoy working in the field and researching with hands on studies.

4 College Junior

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The sources offered are average, but I wish there was more of a variety. The sizes of class are perfect, usually from about 30 to 60 students. The professors usually do their best to get to know their students and are passionate about what they teach.

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.
