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.

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 Most of the classrooms are out of date with the furniture and carpeting. The school spends so much time making the outside of campus look good but the interiors of the buildings are old and out of date.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.

Snooze snooze snooze(I'm only doing the comments). Look, I was like you. I didn't know how colleges worked. Well, they are like businesses. Every one of them. Don't believe me yet? It's just the truth, even if you don't want to see it yet.

Stetson breaks down to this, as of today. The faculty are nice, smart, occasionally funny...good! The students are...youll find enough good people. So you'll get over that, ok? The administration is money grubbing-COMPLETELY! But, every college does that so legit go home school yourself if you don't like every college in the world abusing your wallet/loan.

You'll learn, it costs a couple thousand dollars... Lol. But you get over it. Try not to get the details, Stetson is livable. You get the education. Just gloss over every expense 10000 times before you say "ok okay steetson let's go for a whirl"

Again,
You'll get good teachers n stuff
ok the dorms suckey-stay in one overnight please because-oh THE TOURS ARE A LIIIIIE (portal reference) it's kinda sad because they are students who I know who are cool but have to feed the ad nauseum.

Sorry
You'll find friends
You'll have fun
You'll get that education
You can always ask for MORE, but the thing is that I have yet to find a non ivy league in the area who has all the beach, theme park, palm trees like here. Haha... If you only knew. You won't think to trust just my words, but you'll see only these words are truthful.So get off my back Stetson! I exposed you, praised you, and dished you properly. (good luck little juniors!)
