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...

    I graduated in 2012, and I can't tell you how much I miss this school. I learned so much about life, as well as academics that this school has truly changed my life. The Eckerd community is a tight-knit group of close friends, professors, mentors, and the community of St. Petersburg, and you'll remain connected to Camp Eckerd the rest of your life.

    Eckerd is a very laid-back campus and community. You will find very different types of people here. The teachers all quite friendly and you are bound to have at least one favorite faculty member.

    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).
