4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is great and the teachers are great. The caf could be a little better and then it's like if you are not in greek life then you don't have anything to do and you just sit in your room alone.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am an out of state freshman, I have had a difficult time finding a good group of friends. Being a girl, it is much harder. I am lucky to have a good roommate and neighbors but aside from them it has been difficult trying to find a good solid group. Many people make their friends by going to the local bar that does not check ID's, I am not into that scene so I have never been and cannot comment on it, but I also went through sorority recruitment which was very tiring, it says it is different here and yes it is, but it is a lot of awkward conversations and many girls end up dropping or not accepting their bid. I did not accept my bid and hoping my involvement in other clubs will help me find a solid group of friends. My classes are good, professors genuinely care about their students, there is a lot of activities going on on campus for freshman and upperclassman, food is decent, but overall the students tend to be kind of cliquey once they end up in Greek life. Hoping that it turns around at some point in the year but if not I will be looking to transfer to a larger school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From the athletics to the classroom, the professors are really understanding about everything. The campus staff knows your face by the end of the year and will joke around and make you laugh on the worst day. And the campus itself, a historical landmark, is so unique and beautiful nothing else can compare. You feel at home.

I would choose my school all over again because it really does fit me and my goals.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: FSC is very big into engaged learning and the professors are wonderful. The main things that people complain about are the food and the parking

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is an amazing campus with great proffs who care about how you do

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is way too expensive to not have a major figured out yet and they do not really care if you don't have enough money. They could help out with scholarships a little more too.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Florida Southern College is a great institution. For me, it is just the right size. All of my professors are knowledgable and are really concerned about their students. Also, for my field of Elementary Education I really like that Florida Southern has their students go into public schools during their freshman year. Now as an incoming junior, I feel so comfortable with being with kids in the classroom. I love Florida Southern College- go mocs!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I personally love Florida Southern. Sure, it's a little expensive, but going to a private college, you kind of expect that. That class sizes are small, and that's what I wanted. I like having a relationship with my teachers and being in a classroom that engages me. The smallest class I've had so far was six! The food is mediocre, but they offer healthy options and even the food staff is nice. The faculty really cares, and I've met some great peers.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Beautiful campus and full of some very friendly and inviting people. It's small enough to actually feel like you're part of a community and not a small city (as you might find in a large university).

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Florida Southern is average, nothing special. Average academics and a faculty that truly cares about its students. The parties here suck because THERE ARE NONE. A big party here is 20 people chatting in an apartment playing pong. Most of the people pre-game at their dorms or apartments and drive to a local run down disgusting bar called Kaus. Kaus is old after the first time and drinks aren't cheap. You can get in under 21. The school is beautiful but too much is spent on the flowers and maintenance of the land rather than the buildings. There is a nice new business building but aside from that, most of the buildings are older. The school has a very nice community feel and southerners are friendly. FSC isn't very big so you seem like you know everyone after the first semester. Greek life is HUGE at FSC, seems like most people go greek. Greek life here is kinda lame though cause we can't have greek housing because its a DRY CAMPUS (although people still drink). Also, they are VERY strict when it comes to drugs. Two kids on my floor alone last semester got kicked out for having weed on campus and had to be gone with all of their stuff out of the dorm THAT DAY. They don't mess around when it comes to drugs. FOOD IS TERRIBLE, no options and unhealthy. Literally, the food sucks. If you want a small school that will feel like a 2nd home, FSC may be good for you. If you like to party and don't care about class size, go to a big state school in FL.

Greek Life: I don't really care for Greek Life. I personally think it is fake and too expensive. I am not interested in being a part of it

Athletics: I am not involved in any athletics so I cannot really comment on this

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not seen the options for off campus housing but I know many people want it because they are apartments. I could not have that option because you have to be invited by someone who qualifies. In order to qualify, you must be into your third year of college

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat at fast food restaurants but I know that the most popular ones nearby would definitely be Chipotle. I do however go to walmart for most of my grocery shopping and I am fairly happy with that

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus has many rules but when it comes to enforcing them, it depends on who is in charge. My residence hall advisor never checked if anyone was in the rooms outside of visitation hours so people would have friends and boyfriends sleep over with no problem.

Party Scene: I honestly do not go out and party so I cannot give an opinion on this

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I don't think I had any issues with financial aid. Although I am still not happy with the price I am paying for this college. On top of that, they increased the tuition by $735 this year and they did not tell us at all. There is no reasoning behind this increase and I am not happy with them forcing even more money out of us.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The cafeteria was actually filed to be sued by a previous worker who complained about the horrible kitchen conditions and the problem with mice (which I have seen myself). Overall, the food in the cafeteria is okay. Not the healthiest but it fills you up.

The undercaf offers great breakfast food and an okay lunch. The main issue is how greasy the food is. If I order a quesadilla, it would be soaked in grease and I would easily loose my appetite.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For the incoming freshman, we are offered one of the best dorms which are new and spacious with a great view of Lake Hollingsworth. However, for sophomores, we get downgraded to the older buildings which are known to be infested with ants and mold. The building resembles a mental hospital with dull lights, narrow hallways, and large heavy dark doors that let you in and out of each hall.

The cost is alright. Although some of the worse options have the same price as the better dorms.

The housing process was okay. However, many people this year are left empty handed because the school decided to let in a larger freshman class, leaving some students with no where to live. The school is still trying to sort out the housing process.

Overall, the school has quite a bit to work on and it isn't the best when it comes to campus housing

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It works out great if you have a car to get to places as you wish, otherwise you are out of luck

3 College Sophomore

Administration: About average, some professors are more strict than others but are good at making sure students are coming to class which is important

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The party scene draws the students together every weekend in the small shack that is Kaus. Although it is very frowned upon on campus I think having some leniency towards it is necessary for the students to still have fun as college students without getting out of control.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It has been provided and the staff was very helpful in sorting out the issues I have dealt with the start of each school year.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The taste and variety is enough to get by college. The main issue is the quality of the food is so poor. Even when you try to eat healthy there is no nutritional value in anything.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is great and it is conveniently located. However all the buildings, including the newest ones all have a mold problem. Housing is becoming very scarce on campus and they are beginning to take more students than they can hold, however they will not allow any out of area students to live off campus so people are getting horrible choice preference for housing. The new dorms are very clean, the older ones smell musty as soon as you walk in and other buildings have very outdated bathrooms.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
