Stetson University is a beautiful campus.BrightCommunications
Stetson University is a beautiful campus. The positive aspects of the school ends there. Stetson is very committed to portraying itself a an institution that is committed to helping students and and other high minded pursuits such as fostering values and such. What a joke. The only thing this school values is money. The social life is non-existent. You will get sick of Deland after a year. The faculty ranges from decent to downright horrible. Better to go with amore honest or reputable school.

If you're thinking about Stetson, consider the price.Bright
If you're thinking about Stetson, consider the price. Also, keep in mind that most people are decent here. They aren't going to be your savior, but they won't be rude to you either. Also, the area here is fun-if you have a car. Work ethic can be an issue among students, but professors tend to be fine if not good quality.

No review is likely to tell you everything and all the important things about a school though. If you come here, apply yourself hard! And don't get distracted along the way too much by your peers. This school always has quiet weekends. And by quiet I mean boring. Small population. Should you come here? Are you already here? You'll probably never learn enough to know 100% if the place is right enough or not. Doesn't hurt to be close to home though-if you like that. Make your decision slowly and meticulously. I guess a part of me likes Stetson. I really think the faculty here make a difference. The small population can feel stale or uneventful, possibly. Again, not enough for you to jump on or off the Stetson boat :D and also each department feels just a little different if not more, so look into that.

Steteson University is generally positive but is certainlyQuite BrightBiology
Steteson University is generally positive but is certainly lacking in some regards. The faculty are very welcoming and have office hours where anybody can come in and talk to them if you need help.The academics are rigorous (at least for my department) and have very little busy work if any. The town in demand has a great downtown area thats fun to go to like once a month and thats being generous. While its true that a lot of the campus is focused on Greek life, there are many clubs and extracurriculars that you can join, although, I do recommend Greek life. I am personally involved and we don't require you to drink, go to parties, or anything else that someone might be against. So don't be afraid to rush if you come here. Although stetson is genearlly a large tuition you can see that a lot of that tuition goes to the look of the outside of the university, plus they are growing the freshman class in order to machete school population larger. Thats not to say it will boom, but it will probably max at 5000. This might be a turn off for some people who came here for the low amountt of undergraduates. The food is also barely tolerable in the cafeteria, however; each dorm has a its own kitchen that anyone can use. All in All, stetson university is great place to go, just don't expect the world.
