Overall Experience: At first I didnt like how the school was so small though that changed in a matter of weeks. I instantly fell in love with FGCU I thought it was such a beautiful campus. The small class sizes make you feel like a student not a number and everyone was just so friendly. Theres actually a lot to do on campus while there is no football there is a basketball team and the students go all out so It makes up for it. It is a fairly new school so it is very clean and very well put together overall it is a great school and I wouldnt go any where else

Overall Experience: There is just a great atmosphere at Florida Gulf Coast University. They really strive to make you feel comfortable and welcome. It's a great family environment. They also encourage learning and have many programs and ways to help improve what you have already learned and to help you learn even more so that you succeed in the real world.

Overall Experience: many clubs to be apart of!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think my school is great; everyone there is very helpful and great at working with us, the resources from the school are very beneficial, and I always take away so much from each and every class that I take at Florida Gulf Coast University. I wouldn't go to the extension to say that it is the best school out there, but the facilities, the people, the curriculum, and the food there is fantastic for me.

Overall Experience: I enjoy going to FGCU because its close to everything that makes who I am. I am 5 min away from my church, 10 min away from home, 5 min away from my gym. Its just a convenient location and I have made lots of friends because I'm so close to the school.

Overall Experience: Florida Guld Coast is a great school. The class sizes are small yet the school is huge. I would recommend living on campus for the fist year but there are many off campus options for the next couple years

Overall Experience: Overall, the school has a great environment! Majority of the staff is friendly and helpful. Great school if it has your desired major. However, if it doesn't have your specific major, it's great to start off here.

Off-Campus Housing: Avoid West Lake if you want a good off-campus experience, best off looking for a house and roommates.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: decent for the most part, frat parties suck most frat guys are d-bags

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of places that have vast menus and typically good service.

4 College Junior

Administration: The administration was great for the most part, minus the housing faculty.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Nothing spectacular, if you live on campus and don't mind cooking, i recommend doing so.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: E-mailing is far easier as a method of contact for the financial aid department.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing was okay, but it is hard to get new placement

4 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics are well known on campus and have great fan support. Team performance for athletics and intramurals are high,

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is limited but a great option! The off-campus school housing is right next to the town center and the shuttle goes to and from campus.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: Contacting the financial aid office is hassle free. I've emailed multiple times and receive responses very quickly (some times within minutes of sending out an email). Any problems and/or concerns I've had has always been answered and taken care of. I receive sufficient financial aid every semester.

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice (bigger rooms than UCF), all amenities are included as well as free maintenance all year long. There are multiple laundry matts as well as bus stops for students to use to go to campus. The gym, aquatics, and waterfront are right there for students. The price might seem much to some but it is a lot lower than other universities. The social atmosphere is great; can meet people and make connections with them.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is not bad. it could be better with the prices.

5 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: The parties are amazing and fun. Also everyone gets along

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.
