3 College Freshman

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

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

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I do not really know much about the off 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.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek life so I dont have a particular rating to give

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't participate in Athletics so I'm not involved in any of the facilities

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Unless you are 25, married or your parents live within 30 miles you're staying on campus all 4 years.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I'm vegan so I usually stay at chipotle, moe's, abuelo's, saigon and tea largo (my personal favorite). Not a whole lot of vegan/vegetarian options however.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: You can get around a lot of the petty rules however tea lights are a fire hazard and they will fine you $50 and place a hold on your classes. So make sure not to have tea lights folks because they don't warn you ahead of time (:

Party Scene: Unless you're in greek there is hardly a party scene. Kaus is gross. Stay in drinking in the dorms with your friends is the normal non-greek party life.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was able to get half off of tution due to my GPA and ACT scores. If I didn't get that I wouldn't be at this school.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Vegan/vegetarian options are extremely limited. The food quality is very poor and you're forced to eat on campus freshman and sophomore year until you can live in an off campus apartment. Very oily everything.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman year I got a single dorm which had a great view and was in a brand new building. The only downfall is how small it was I could take two-three steps both ways and I would hit a wall. They treat the freshman the best so that they come back the next year. Freshman get the best dorms. Sophomore year you still have to live in the dorms and if you have a high enough GPA you can get average dorms which is what I got. I live in hollis (which had a mold problem in the beginning of the year for some of the rooms, I walked in one girls room and it felt extremely damp gross!) and you share a bathroom with 20+ other girls there are three bathroom stalls and four showers. You don't have access to any appliances you clean everything in a bathroom sink. You can't have any appliances in the dorms to cook your own food either unless you want to run the risk of it getting confiscated and fined. The worst part about the housing is you have to live on campus all four years. Once you're a junior you can live in an on campus apartment and they have converted all of the rooms to doubles and triples since they don't know what to do with all of the students. If you want to live by yourself in an apartment forget about it. There are only 3-4 single apartments TOTAL. I'm living with random roomates but at least I get a single room to myself which I had to fight for. Most people share rooms in the apartments.

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.
