Overall Experience: FGCU is the best school I ever attended in college. the teachers care about their students and want them to achieve their goals. Degrees here are well accredited and have good value in the job market.

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.

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.

5 College Senior

Party Scene: There are day drinks, pre games, parties, frat parties, bars for underaged, all pretty close to campus. I'm not apart of Greek life and still have lots to do. Bars are popular during week and weekends. Parties on weekends. I've been to Rutgers parties, Montclair parties, Rowan parties, and more and I like FGCU the best personally. Friendly people, you can go to bars when you are under 21, lots to do. Not overly crowded and dirty like Rutgers frat parties. FGCU is clean and always warm out. Users are cheap since town center is a minute away.

Bars are popular during week and weekend and parties on weekends. I've been to Rutgers parties, Rowan parties, montclaire parties and other and I personally think FGCU s are just as good. You can go to the bars when you're under 21, it always nice weather, uber are cheap because town center is only a mile away. Parties are not dirty and too crowded like Rutgers parties. FGCU is clean and fun

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.
