3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are really small, so we get a lot of personal interaction with our professors. They really encourage you to go to their office hours if you're stuck, and they'll get mad and blame you for not going when you fail. It's an okay experience. The classes are relatively easy if you originally had a knack for it, and if you don't, then it's simple to just follow assigned readings and attend class.

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but I've been into some of my friends' dorms. They look absolutely horrifying. The beds are literally right up against each other, and the room is probably as big as an average room for a child who lives at home with their parents. They make the bed really tall so you can fit your belongings underneath it because there's practically no space for anything else in the room. There's only two desks, and maybe a closet. Everything feels insanely cramped. There's only like one bathroom to a whole floor (I'm not sure about this, maybe 2). It's insane because my friend at Nova has a 2 people dorm that looks like a living room compared to Florida Southern's.

Athletics: I am not very involved in the sports section of the school, so I wouldn't know any useful information. Of the information that does come my way, the sports seem really sparse. The intramural sports were only mentioned at the beginning of the year, and nobody talks about them. You do see a few people who came to the school on a sports-related reason, but they are far and few.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus is really, really small, and the buildings are quite old. The computer labs have nice desktops, and they have many useful programs. The food is okay, albeit really limited because there aren't many options. The activities in this school are really boring because they err on the side of country-festival like entertainment which doesn't attract me at all. The classrooms are really small, which is great because professors really pay attention to me and notice when I am doing well or I need help. This is not a fun school, but it is a great school for learning. The diversity in this school is really low, and it intimidates me sometimes because I'm part of the minority. There aren't that many culturally diverse activities to begin with though, so I can't complain.

Health & Safety: There are golf carts driving around a lot, but a lot of things slip by because they are so old.

Overall Experience: The teacher's seem to be good but some don't really care. The classes are pretty small with about max of 40.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There aren't a lot of opportunities with businesses around the school

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms stink, they are old and out of date, you could have a 2 person dorm with 4 people inside, restrooms are a disaster

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek housing is great, the system is great, philanthropy week is amazing for each fraternity and sorority who does it

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The intramural sports are the best parts, varsity sports are over looked most of the time

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers are very inconsistent, the price you pay is a lot compared to what you get out of the college

Party Scene: The only bar nearby was closed due to a tragic accident with a student here. It's a dry campus so drinking must be kept on the down low but it still happens.

Party Scene: There really isn't a party experience. If that is what a student needs at their college of choice then FSC is not for you.

Academics: I really enjoy all of my classes. Majority of the professors know what they're talking about and are willing to spend time with you to help you out. The only issue would probably be the registration process because when it comes time to sign up for classes, the website crashes because of all the students online. Along with this is the fact that yes there are small classes which can cause issues for those who need the class/want a particular professor and can't get into it.

Greek Life: The sororities and fraternities here are pretty good and do great things. If you aren't in one you can just feel left out. I didn't get a job multiple people applied for and after the selection process I understood why I did not receive an offer. I am not in Greek like and the ones who received the job were ALL in Greek life, every one of them except for 2. This was out of 50 people.

Athletics: There are a lot of athletics here at our school. The facilities and faculty is great and always puts in the effort to make everything run smoothly and well.

Overall Experience: This school is really great with individualized learning for each of its students. It's a small campus that allows you robe yourself and to have a personal and profound touch on your life. As long as you put in the effort the professors and faculty will make sure you succeed at whatever you wants

Health & Safety: Freshmen have to carry a security alarm (it's optional but encouraged for upperclassmen) and we have a whole program (Just Ask) dedicated to assault, how to prevent it, and how to handle it.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

Students have to be open to the help and advice that is offered at FSC; it's easy when the professors' enthusiasim is contagious. The small community holds options for recent graduates to obtain jobs because the area is riddled with alumni who are more than willing to help out an FSC graduate. Although the amount of different social and academic groups may be fewer than what is available in a larger school, students have many more opportunities to hold leadership positions and gain experience through clubs. The smaller size also gives students more opportunities to participate in campus events, such as free Chick-Fil-A chicken biscuits on certain Fridays.

FSC is unique because of the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. A point of pride at the school, the buildings have a sense of prestige because they are all exquisite. The absence of bland, boring buildings makes the environment for learning much more appealing. FSC is distinguished as one of the top 10 most beautiful schools in the nation for a reason.
