I love the small classroom sizes because it makes the professors approachable and helpful. Everyone is friendly and very diverse so it exposes people to other cultures, languages, races, and ethnicities.

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.

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 !
