Most Helpful Review for Eckerd College

Eckerd College is a very small liberal arts school in St. Pete, FL. The best part about attending a small school is that the class sizes are smaller, which enhances learning. You actually get to know your professors (which are all very helpful) and they get to know you. All my professors are more then willing to help during their office hours and really try to help you succeed. Eckerd College has an exceptional Marine Science program right on the water front with a hands on approach to learning. Eckerd is also very focused on having well rounded students...

    Eckerd College is expensive, but well worth the money if you can afford it. The professors and staff are always available. The science department is well known for their hands-on research, even for freshman.

    This beautiful but pricey college is only good enough for Marine Biology Majors. Other majors would be wasting their money.

    There are just too many activities to join and things to do! The professors are all really nice and the class sizes great. I love the climate and all the water activites offered at the swimming pool and waterfront (wake boarding/ paddle boarding/ sailing/ etc).

    Eckerd is an absolutely awesome place with plenty to do and experience. The weather is great, the professors are almost all up to par, and faculty is ready and willing to help students go further in their education and careers in any way they know how. There aren't many people that I wouldn't recommend Eckerd to.

    Eckerd is a fantastic place! If you want to major in marine science, this is where you need to be. If you want to be a doctor, there are better programs out there.
