    I think this is a great school. There are so many opportunities for research. Our guide had done 4 study abroads-all very cool ones. You can go every January and also in May for a month, or you can do a semester or a whole year. The professor who's class I went to does a UN trip (he used to work there), he does a trip to the Hague and also the UN in NYC. You can also do a service abroad trips--our guide went to Iceland and helped clear some paths and other conservation projects. It's supposedly pretty easy to get financing for the trips. Also, you can go to Cuba, which is cool--I would definitely want to do that. I like the yellow bikes, when I came for the bbq by myself, I got lost and it was super handy to be able to ride around on the bike till I found everyone.

    It is quite expensive but there are many work study opportunities and scholarships available. The school also gives away many free stuff to its students.

    Eskers offers a huge number of merit based scholarship, which helps lower their hefty price tag. But when you take into consideration the location, amenities and low teacher to student ratio, it is surprising the tuition is not more

    It is very expensive. So its not for the people who just want to do the minimum and party. This college is for people serious about their careers. If you really dive into the academic side of Eckerd, it'll be worth the money.

    You are 100% spending all your money on the acedemics because the dorms are DISGUSTING. You have to share a bathroom with the entire house and the dorms seem like a prison cell. You have to pay to do laundry, unlike most colleges I've visited. I would not spend 50k a year to live in such poor living conditions. They definitely need to update the housing before I would consider attending this school.
