When asked about the academics at Florida Gulf Coast University, most students feel that they are getting a great education. FGCU is a growing university and is only changing for the better. Professors are willing to go above and beyond to help students succeed. Many students are satisfied with their majors and the courses for their majors. Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming, with the amount of work you have to do, but it's all worth it in the end.
The University is a young school, having only been founded in 1991. Most universities in the state of Florida are 100 years old. For a school to be this young and still have prestige is highly impressive. There are many degree programs and many colleges within the school, but somehow for being so diverse, the University still has a homey-feel about it. The professors are very willing to help in any possible way they can, and they are also very understanding if you have a problem with something and need help. The students are also very willing to help each other. They all realize that finishing a class means accomplishing a goal, and because of that, they help one another.
