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.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I hear how good a degree from Stetson will do you after graduation, I believe my degree will be more than just a piece of paper.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Sometimes it is difficult to get into the housing that you desire but overall they offer a variety of good living spaces. All are diverse and offer their own benefits to the students.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not personally part of the Greek community, but I have many friends who are in an they love it! There is usually always something going on in the Greek life and they are very active at Stetson.

3 College Junior

Athletics: It is a school more renowned for its education, however the school is D1 and has very good baseball, sand volleyball, and women's basketball teams.

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.
