Stetson University was an unbelievable experience that IQuite BrightPsychology
Stetson University was an unbelievable experience that I wouldn't trade for the world. I was heavily involved in Greek life which I recommend and the social scene was great. I made my best friends at Stetson and would do back in a second. Stetson helped me figure out who I was and how to kill it in the real world. Most of my friends are CEO's of their own company or they are in high-power jobs. I am so impressed by how much my friends and myself have accomplished since graduation and we all attribute our success to Stetson. Not to mention that we have the best stories from our time there.I was honestly shocked by some of the negative reviews on this website and wonder about their accuracy. I encourage you to visit the school when it is in session and see for yourself. Deland (the town that Stetson is located in) is small but has awesome bars and restaurants and it is close to Orlando, Daytona and New Smyrna Beach. It is also located in the sky diving capital of the US. You have to be adventurous when you go to Stetson to have a good time. I surfed every day or I got to lay out in between classes with my friends and I got the best education in my field of study. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Stetson has been a big disappointment for me.BrightMusic - Performance
Stetson has been a big disappointment for me. Yes, they offer good scholarships but that is where it ends. The professors are not supportive and provide little mentoring to their students. I feel as though I attend a high school instead of a college - too much drama in the school of music and professors who are not helpful. Music dept only cares about recruiting students instead of the overall quality and training of their students. Performance opportunities limited to only performing in Deland, FL - big disappointment and I'm looking forward to graduation and moving on.

This place sucked.BrightVideo/Media
This place sucked. There were practically no good people. Avoid the greeks and ccm they do nothing more then rape (or plan rape) and push people into commiting suicide. There was even a pro rape party at least one time.

Hard workers are not rewarded. Also the whole school cares more about pushing people into becoming gay just to appear tolerate and open minded when they are not open minded and tolerant at all.
