This school focusses on publicity and takes your money when it can and spends it on the campus and or football team. It is a waste of time to come here let alone visit and if you enjoy snobby people, drama, and overdone greek life then this is the place for you. Everyone I have talked to has left because of these reasons and or wants to leave.

First off I would like to say, TAKE THIS WEBSITE WITH A GRAIN OF SALT. The reviews and ratings are completely non-representative of the actual satisfaction of students at their respective colleges.

Stetson is a great school school and I am sure that it was the right choice for me but it is not for everyone.

Come to Stetson if:

you want small classes
sub-par sports don't bother you
you want helpful faculty that bends over backwards for their students
you are interested in greek life(do not have to be but if you are you would like it here)
you want to have a diverse and friendly student body where you can make many friends.
you are a music major (students go to Ivy league grad schools from our music school)
DO NOT come to Stetson if:

you are planning on not going to class half the time
want a huge college town (deland is nice but its no gainesville)
do not want to see familiar faces when walking around campus
are not a motivated student (professors expect a lot from you here)

May 14 2013Business - Management and Administration
If you went to a private high school, this probably isn't the place for you. I had more fun nights in high school than I did at this place. I spent one year here and was pretty miserable. If you're not in a sorority or a fraternity, you probably won't have a social life or anything to do on the weekends. However, the people involved in Greek life are primarily the people that wanted to be cool in high school, weren't, and now think they're cool for being in a sorority/fraternity.

As far as the academics go, this school isn't really challenging. People who are in-state make it seem like it's this amazing institution with great professors and resources and it's not that at all. Most of the classrooms are out of date with the furniture and carpeting. The school spends so much time making the outside of campus look good but the interiors of the buildings are old and out of date.

The food isn't anything spectacular. The commons food is mediocre at best but you'll get sick of it pretty quickly.

Athletes basically run the school. They get first pick of housing and registering for classes. They all think they're cool and hot and they're definitely not at all whatsoever. Speaking of attractiveness, if you're looking for a school with a lot of good looking people, this isn't it. I'm not writing this review with the intention of scaring anybody away from this university but trying to make people aware of the kinds of people here and what it's actually like. If you're looking for a school that has all the bells and whistles of a beautiful campus and nice buildings and a good looking student body, this probably isn't it.
