    Our mission at Stetson University is to provide an excellent education in a creative community where learning and values meet, and to foster in students the qualities of mind and heart that will prepare them to reach their full potential as informed citizens of local communities and the world.

    At Stetson, the art of teaching is practiced through programs solidly grounded in a tradition of liberal learning that stimulates critical thinking, imaginative inquiry, creative expression, and lively intellectual debate. The art of learning is enhanced through small interactive classes, close student-faculty alliances, and collaborative approaches that provide the foundation for rewarding careers and advanced study in selective graduate and professional programs. We embrace diverse methodologies to foster effective communication, information and technological literacy, and aesthetic appreciation. We encourage the development of informed convictions, independent judgment, and lifelong commitments to learning that are characteristic features of the enlightened citizen. In bringing together learning and values, the University encourages all of its members to demonstrate personal integrity; to develop an appreciation for the spiritual dimension of life; to embrace leadership in an increasingly complex, interdependent, and technological world; and to commit to active forms of social responsibility.

    With a revamped curriculum that was launched this fall, Stetson is offering a wider variety of classes than ever. This school is designed with the goal of every student graduating with a well-rounded education, and I wholeheartedly feel this at work in me. I came to Stetson with my major already decided, but even so, have taken classes ranging from Biblical Literature, to Nutrition, to Psychology. Stetson is good at being the small school it is, and with that comes the benefit of a friendly and effective learning environment. Every class is taught by an actual professor (not assistant) who is readily accessible--most have complete open-door policies. The courses can be difficult, but that simply means there is more information being provided. If I ever have a tough time with the material, all I have to do is utilize one of the innumerous resources that are present here and waiting to be put to use. In addition to academics, the Stetson campus is a learning environment in itself. I have learned more in the past few semesters about how to live, how to manage my time, who to surround myself with, and so much more. There are so many outlets on campus that provide information for students about eating well, living well, and learning well that are, in my opinion, not only irreplaceable, but also one of the characteristics of this institution that makes it so unique. read full review

    The biggest complaint that students have about Stetson, and DeLand in general, is that it is too quiet on the weekends. If you are really big into drinking and partying, Stetson may not be the school for you. However, I have always found that Stetson has plenty to offer for me. Every Friday night, the CSA puts on fun activities, there is always some place on campus to find free food, and it is easy to keep oneself busy with all the concerts, organizations, and sports teams on campus. As an added bonus, Stetson is about halfway between Orlando and Daytona Beach and it is not a long drive to either one. read full review
