| While there are many aspects of this university that I love, I don't recommend people to go to school here. The majority of the teachers do not care if you're actually learning and seem to be just trying to get through the semesters as fast as possible. |
If you want to go to advising for some advice on your classes, don't. They will just give you the obvious facts and not give you any options or advice on what you should do.
There's nothing to do around this town so most people just get drunk/smoke weed every day. To some this may sound fun, but trust me, it gets extremely boring. If I could go back and pick a college all over again I would never choose this one. I've made some good friends here, but that's about it. I haven't gotten a good education at FGCU and for the amount of money it costs to go here, its extremely disappointing.

| Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) needs to be carefully looked at when thinking to choose this college. I entered this college happy, secure, and not harmed. I'm at the end and will be leaving annoyed, frustrated,and harmed. This school has affected me in a negative way, which is not what people expect to get out of college or have as a college experience. |
CAPS has an employee that tells students they were not raped even though they really were and have proof of it. So called professional also screws around with students medication when the employee only cares about doing what their wants by only looking at what benefits their needs at the time(use students at time when something will benefit them). CAPS does NOT look at the value or context of a student's or their care. Also, goes out of their way to break medical confidentiality and HIPPA Privacy Rights this is done by speaking with faculty members from your program regarding your medical care and medication, which is ethically wrong.
The school and CAPS protects students who engage in harming, harassing, and stalking other students. Also, the school and CAPS protect those who engage in raping and sexually assaulting other students.
The school and CAPS facilitates and protects bullies and looks the other way because it benefits them and is easier than doing their jobs, which would be the correct, ethical, and moral way.
Forget Privacy Rights and HIPPA Privacy Rights when you enter this school. Be fore warned their is no individuality and no value for the students. Also, be prepared to have e-mails that support your side in something deleted.
When entering this college be prepared to be lied to.
Be ready to have your schedule automatically changed with no regard to your own life or reasons to why the student set their schedule up.
When students come in and then make it to the end some how faculty, program administration, advising, and other resources seem to forget who you are, what track they put you in to meet your needs. Its even worse when your related to the people and they know who you are and what they set up but choose to do something that supports benefiting them and the school more than the student, which is also their own relative. Also, these people will choose to punish or hurt you and protect your enemy, whom is a person who raped you, harass, stalk and then involved others to sexually assault you.
If you still choose this school after reading and understanding the above do NOT choose to live at North Lake Village this is an extreme fore warning! You will need extra money to change rooms, locks, get a nanny cam, record when being harassed by those who have done the above to you(yes, housing knows but still places you with the person who has harmed you, and be prepared to have to continually tell housing your Attorney Advised you to move because the first two times housing does not understand. Consider carefully!

| This is hands down the worst college experience I've ever had. I have attended two other universities, a community college for two years, and University of Florida for correspondence courses. As a psychology major, only about 30% of the elective courses listed are actually offered, and good luck getting into any of the classes you need! The classes only accept 24-40 students at a time, even the online courses max out at 30-35 students, and they fill up within hours of registration opening. How many people are in the program??? So you end up having to wait ENTIRE SEMESTERS to take certain classes you need because you can't get into them. They offer many of the classes at the same exact time on the same days, so you can only register for one class, and not take any other classes you need. Didn't have this problem with the other two schools I attended. Which reminds me, I wouldn't have to take correspondence courses with ANOTHER UNIVERSITY if my own offered them and I could get in. It is such a pain in the a** having to transfer credits and enroll at another school just because my "home" school failed to give me what I am paying for. Hey FGCU, if you are going to hike your tuition rates by 14%, maybe you should actually provide the classes students need to get their degrees! I really wish I had never chosen this school. Parking is a nightmare. The campus is out in the open so when it rains, which is pretty frequently during Florida summers, you get soaked. It's in a small town, pretty much in the woods (complete with alligators walking around on the sidewalks with you!) so there is no nightlife. There's no football team. No fraternity or sorority houses. What exactly does FGCU offer that other universities do not? The nursing program almost lost accreditation because none of the graduates could pass the boards, so they built a new health sciences building to try and draw in more nursing students with something shiny and new since their program sucks so bad. If I knew this was going to be my "college experience" with FGCU, I would never have applied. Do yourself a favor and go to a real university, that can offer academics as well as the fun things, like a football team, a fun city to explore, that prospective employers will also be able to recognize when looking at your resume (most have never heard of FGCU). |
