4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far, other than a few bumps and hiccups, I've really enjoyed my school, mainly my major. I have a hard time making friends at times, so I'm just now getting my social life under control, but my studies always come first and they've been amazing. The professors are great and I'm always interested in what we're working on. I think I would definitely choose my school again, because the class sizes are small and the faculty and staff are amazing.

Overall Experience: Stetson University is an amazing school. The campus is beautiful and small. The class room size if perfect, they are small and you get the one on one connection with the professors. All the students are friendly and it is easy to meet a lot of new people on a personal level. The faculty is very helpful and they all want to see you succeed. Stetson will help you in every way to help you make a career!

Overall Experience: One of my favorite experiences from my first year of college would be going on tour with Stetson's symphonic band. Time well spent with those students and friends brought more than just a fun spring break, it gave me memories to look back on. I got closer to a lot of people while our band went on tour. We rode on charter buses from Florida to the Carolinas and watched movies the whole time. My favorite memory though, was during our personal best performance of our program. Students at Stetson are not only some of the nicest people I've had the pleasure to perform with, but the most musical, what I mean by that is our band created more than sound, we created imagery and emotion. We all put our best foot forward for our program and with my fellow musicians I gained my favorite college experience so far.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While Stetson was a great experience for me, I feel that Stetson may be over-priced and too expensive for me to possibly continue going there. I need more scholarships and grants to try and combat the price of tuition, room and board, and books. Despite this, the college campus is very small and a walking campus, which I enjoy heavily and encourage anyone that doesn't like being around large groups to look into.

Athletics: It feels like the facilities tend to cater to the athletes instead of the average student that wants to stay healthy.

Off-Campus Housing: There is not a lot of options for living off campus and Stetson has a rule about having undergraduates on campus instead of off.

Campus Food: The food is never anything that is actually good for you. I am slightly allergic to ranch and that is the only option if I want to eat a salad at the school. The food is way over priced, if I want a burger it is 8 dollars and then i have to pay more for the fries and a drink even though it is my meal swipe. I should be about to have a full meal with my swipe and it not cost me extra money that I don't have.

Scholarships: When you start receiving money from other scholarships; the school then finds reasons to not give you the full amount of money that is originally given to you. They will say you didn't do as well as the year before. Many students are having issues with this problem of the school being stingy with the students money.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing is okay because some rooms are smaller than others and don't always feel like the accommodate to two women or men. They can be drafty at times and some people have issues with ants or wasps.

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.
