2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most people come from upper middle class families. If you are poor and have problems affording this college you will find people who can sympathize with you to, but be careful because some of these sympathizers are just rich kids mad about getting their scholarships taken away cause they cannot cut it grade wise. The school is predominately white but minorities can find clubs such as the black student association. Most people at the school are straight, so if you are gay you will most likely need to find a partner elsewhere.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Greek organizations have pretty bad substance abuse problems which many faculty advisers ignore. If you are anti drug do not be vocal about it since it can ostracize you pretty quickly (personal experience).

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses are of high quality and if you put in effort you can get an A in the course. Do not overload yourself on hard course and sometimes the teacher can make all the difference in whether you get an A or a B. I wish their was more variety in my department and more research opportunities for learning outside of the classroom.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni network is pretty non existent because Stetson keeps raising its tuition so potential alumni usually have to transfer to cheaper schools.There is limited connections in my field since many of the students tend to not get into medical school making it harder to make connections with medical schools. If you have family connections or your parents are doctors then you should be fine with getting into medical school. But if you don't have connections then I would advise looking at another university.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: For a small school in the middle of nowhere I feel relatively safe on campus. Even though the administration does allow fraternities get away with activities which may make the school less safe than it could be.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The upperclassmen dorms are nice and spacious. emily and Chaudion are also pretty spacious. Avoid nemiec and uhall

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Do not bother rushing if you do not get into a top sorority or fraternity, you will just have to spend hours making up what your house lacks. Also if you are in a lower sorority you will get no benefits but still have to be grateful to the Greek community to not go lower down the totem poll.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Stetson has the potential to be a great school. The teaching is amazing and the teachers really care about your education. The students on the other hand are not that ambitious and enjoy partying more than actually taking their classes seriously. It has been very hard to find a study buddy at this school. Most students complain about their grades but only study for an exam the night before. Many went to easy high schools so they are not used to putting in the effort. The students are friendly enough and if you get into a top tier sorority/fraternity you will have a great time at the university. But if you get into a middle to bottom tier like me you will be forced to give up hours of study time just to help make your sorority look better. I like Stetson and some of its aspects but am also looking to other schools where students appreciate and value their education a little more.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is all very difficult but I like a challenge. I like the professors I've had so far, they all make you think outside the box.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have a program for all of our general majors which helps out alot.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have emergency buttons throughout the campus. First place where I can walk around campus alone at night and feel safe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am very independent and it's better for me to live on my own, so I do not enjoy it that much. I am happy that I am very close to my classes though

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I was in a sorority but had to drop because I didn't have the time or money. It was nice to be part of a second family and I loved raising money and helping the community.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletes are very talented, but not very kind people. The women seem to be a little more respectful than the men.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is expensive. I can't do loans so I pay out of pocket and work three jobs, but it is worth every penny. That's a promise !

4 College Freshman

Athletics: A football team was just recently added to the school so we're not the best, yet. The baseball team is phenomenal though so that makes up for it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I took a tour of the Stetson campus in DeLand and it was extremely beautiful and well maintained. The atmosphere is relaxing and perfectly suitable for a student who's trying to major in biochemistry while still being engaged in other school-related activities. The area enables the student to maintain focus due to the lack of college student attractions such as nightclubs and high-sociable locations.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Stetson University has been absolutely amazing. I feel like I am part of a small community with so much support. The class sizes were extremely small and I feel like I learned so much more than I would have going to a larger university. I love it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Having only been at school for a semester, I did not have the chance to attend one of the many career events available at the school, but I heard from friends that they give students lots of opportunity.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety on the Stetson campus is amazing. I love going for walks and late night runs on campus and will see a public safety car about every five minutes while walking. I always feel safe when I'm walking alone, even at night. I've gotten locked out of my room twice and was inside within about ten minutes of calling for help.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: One of my favorite parts of going to college for the first time was the building I lived in. It felt like a little home, I was never farther than three minutes from all my classes, and the girls I lived with were so much fun. It was a really sweet and comforting environment.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life, but I have many friends in fraternities and sororities at Stetson and the majority of Greeks that I know are involved for a strong desire to do good in the community.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Stetson is a small school, and in my experience, most of the school goes to watch the sports games/matches in support of the athletes at the school. It is a small community, it feels like cheering on a small town of friends you grew up with!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I honestly love my school. I started at as a freshman at Stetson University in the Spring 2016 semester and seemingly overnight became addicted to knowledge. I want to learn everything now! Since my first day at Stetson, I cannot seem to stop thinking about the future, reading any books in sight, etc. Stetson has helped me find myself.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University is great my absolute only qualm with it is its cost, I have to take out a large amount of loans to help pay for it on top of the financial aid I am receiving. The environment, education, experiences are amazing and memorable though. It is a really great school.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The overall experience of Stetson University can be described as intimate. The campus itself isn't big, so of course that has its pros and cons. The pros: Students get to know one another well, and finding and walking to classes are easy. Of course, if it's a really rainy or hot day, then it can be a hassle. However, with a small campus, students are able to get to know their professors well, which is great. On the downside, if you miss a class, the professor will notice. Some professors here will curve grades based on attendance. Another contributing factor of the overall experience is the small class size. Small class sizes are nice for those who like it, but they correlate with a higher tuition rate.

However, for every pro, there is a con of some sort. The overall experience will differ for each student. Some move on to other universities; others like it here and stay. It all comes down to whether a student will take the good with the bad. Since Stetson is always looking to improve, the school generally will listen. Since it will listen, the bad things about Stetson become tolerable and make it a decent school all around. Plus, the location of the University is pretty good since it's located between Orlando and Daytona Beach. The best advice for anyone interested in attending Stetson is that it's important to get to know the University a little bit by coming here, doing the tour, and most importantly, talking to the current students. That will make things a heck of a lot easier in deciding whether Stetson is the place for you.
