After Florida Gulf Coast University
- Very Good821
I absolutely adore FGCU. It has an amazing back to nature feel and is very environmentally friendly. The academics are great and the professors brilliant. The housing is rather expensive and it would be amazing if the cost could go down though.

When I went to visit Florida Gulf Coast for a tour I was amazed. The school is absolutely beautiful. When we went to go eat lunch, the students were all very nice and when asked questions they answered them fully and with emotion. You could tell they really loved their school. The only reason I gave this 4 stars is our tour guide was very confusing. She went through the whole entire tour talking in the future. Ex. "If you look to your left, there will be a copier there". When confronted she got a little annoyed at why we didn't understand.
