4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From what I've been told by my friends off campus housing is great.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Only frats really throw parties and they are held mostly on weekends. From the parties that I've went to they are fine, but they are not the best. In Deland, there are barely any clubs and if the frats are not throwing a party on the weekends it can get really boring. Usually when a party is not going on people chose to hangout at BrickHouse Grill Bar.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Very good and the administration takes thier jobs very seriously.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial Aid was very helpful in helping me get aid. However, I would have to say the aid that I received was not enough to cover majority of my cost which sucked, beause I had to end up taking loans for the semester.

Campus Food: I am on the 19 meal a week plan it I have wasted so many meals due to the meal swipe periods.If you're considering getting a meal plan, I would consider getting a 15 meal plan so you can enjoy the great food downtown. Einsteins is really the place you would want to go with a meal plan because they have tasty fresh options. The commons is another option on some days, but after a while the food begins to taste really bad. Johonny Rockets has burgers, shakes, and fries, but only certian burgers are covered under the meal swipe so you're options are limited.

Campus Housing: If you are a first year, I recommend co-ed first year housing. Usually as a first year, you will be assigned to either Gordis, Carson, Hollis, or Smith and each floor will be a different gender. I think this it teaches a great dynamic and introduces you to people in your grade and position that will come in handy in the long run. Because a lot of first years tend to take the same classes or be involved in similar groups being in this area makes finding friends and help very easy. Chaudoin is a great all girls hall and isn't as caddy and crazy as people would think either but as a first year I would wait before choosing Chaudoin.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Teams all aren't amazing as a whole, but a lot of hype surrounding them. All athletes friends with each other. If you're not an athlete, you usually are just rude to athletes.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: If you can get off campus, it's great. ResLife sucks and chances are will never approve you for off-campus. Even if dorms make you die.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown has a lot of great food options. Daytona, Orange City, and NSB are all relatively close and they have great options as well.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Athletes have a ton of house parties. Frats throw parties that are lame 90 percent of the time.

3 College Freshman

Administration: P-safe is nice when they want to be. Other than that, I've never had any issues and people don't really care about anything.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They give a lot of academic scholarships to ease the process.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus food is TERRIBLE. Had I tried a meal here prior to deciding, I never would have came. I eat in the Commons like once or twice a week, against my will.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's pretty bad. They don't let people live off-campus, yet they do not provide enough space or amenities that would make people want to stay on campus. The lottery system is gipped by kids who get doctors notes to get into the nicer dorms. Overall, housing is just bad.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love supporting my athlete friends when I can!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: They're mostly within walking distance

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't follow that crowd

Scholarships: They're always super helpful over there =]

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus and not just because I'm an RA. I'm an out of state student so Stetson is home to me.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Living on campus has it perks like being cheaper, but it also takes away from the involvements that you can really have at school throughout the different activities and programs

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: For the most part, all the restaurants offer student discount so that is major plus, the real downer in the capacity of some of these places since most are very small and tend to be local favorites.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There is a high regard for student academic integrity and an violations are dealt with swiftly.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't really get that involved with the party scene at school, most of it take place with my friends from high school or from back home.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The sooner you start to deal with the financial aid situation, the sooner you will be able to fix an situation that may come up.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I am personally not on the meal plan so all the food that I buy comes out of my pocket, so with that in mind prices are pretty high and there is very little variety.

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.
