Stetson University - Comments and Student Experiences|
Stetson is the perfect place for a student who doesn't want to get lost in a crowd but still wants to be challenged.
For me personally most of the teachers in the business school cared about their students and offered them many chances beyond the classroom to learn. One of the best things about the faculty is many of their presentations aren't as "canned" as I would have expected.The best piece of advice I could give would be to take chances to travel abroad (Stetson offers a variety).
Besides the biology department I have never had a problem with any other professor either. Sure there have been some that I have liked less than others... but thats natural.
The most important thing to me is that I am a NAME, not a number. I see my professors outside class ALL THE TIME and I always at least say hello, and usually stop and have a full conversation.
The only complaint I do have abot Stetson is sometimes I wish we had more dining options. Which, actually I have heard that they are adding more this summer. SO thats exciting!
The biology department is my absolute favorite thing about Stetson!!!! I love our professors and I have honestly enjoyed every single biology class I have taken so far. I love walking down the hallway and knowing where EVERY PROFESSOR'S office is, and that they are willing to stop what they are doing and help me for a few minutes, without an appointment! Even professors whom I have never actually had class with before have helped me when I really needed it (try getting that kind of personal attention at a larger public school!).
We're not JUST about academics though (we're not a bunch of nerds!) As a Stetson Student you don't just attend classes and take tests. We are encouraged to get involved in other areas on campus including; religious life, greek-life; sporting events, volunteering, etc.
Even though our campus is small... we are active! We have so many student organizations and clubs I can't even keep track, and most students are involved in at least 1, if not 2-3 of these groups. We're very active in the DeLand community as well (lots of local businesses give Stetson Student Discounts!).
