4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most of my professors have been great. They're always helpful and really down to earth. They are all very smart and know what they are talking about. The class sizes here are pretty small which is good for a learning environment!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The program I am in, the internships are amazing. The availability of internships here is also plentiful. I'm not too sure about the alum network because we are a relatively new school. All I know is that everyone who need an internship gets a great internship!

Health & Safety: I have been safe and all my friends have been safe. You don't really hear much about abuse and assault here at Fgcu. We do have blue towers across campus for safety and our campus PD is great! I feel safe on campus all the time.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living here at Fgcu is like living at a resort. If I could live in freshman housing every year, I would! Every dorm has its own room for you so you never have to share living spaces.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I enjoy being apart of Greek life. The campus is pretty strict about it and we do not have housing but it's great to be apart of something and help out the community!

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics are alright here. It would be nice if they had a football team and a bigger basketball stadium. The fan support of great tho for our basketball team!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school is amazing. The people here are so friendly and helpful it's really hard to have a bad time. If I were to do it all over again, I would probably still come here! The unique thing about FGCU is that it's so future driven and very eco friendly.

Campus Housing: Never lived in housing at FGCU but from what I've seen it seems very well-kept

Greek Life: I know nothing about Greek life other than the fact that the people I have encountered weren't always the most respectful in class.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Fan support is fantastic. Not only do we bring in students but also a large fan base in the 55+ age group, which shows how important the program is to the community.

Overall Experience: I like Florida Gulf Coast Univeristy because it's a very welcoming atmosphere. People are very friendly and the teaching is excellent. I also enjoy the scenery as the campus encorporates nature as part of the feel to the college experience.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
