Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The FGCU campus is very clean and kept up very well. The campus is also very eco-friendly. There are recycling bins everywhere. Overall, the campus seems large in size, but that is only because it is spread out.

The buildings are very well maintained. There are many windows, so students can look outside at the beautiful scenery that the University offers. The insides of the buildings are not very hard to navigate. The outside, however, is a different story, but after about day three, it becomes easier to navigate through the campus. Just remember where you parked, and you will never get lost.
