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 think think this college would be great for me. I love water and if I wanted to I could get down with the fish. The ocean loves me and I love it nothing could ever go wrong.

    Eckerd College is a tight-knit community of students and faculty, who are dedicated to intellectual advancement, civil engagement, environmental matters, and more. The students are very active in the community surrounding the campus, but also their global community since they come from every state and county. While Eckerd may be a small college, there is a huge focus on bettering the experiences and overall well-being of others and always shifting the conversation on others.

    Eckerd College is a great school that I would recommend mostly to people who would love challenges in majors such as Marine Science and Environmental Sciences. It is also situated in West Florida where the weather is always sunny and you do not get snow. Eckerd College gives many opportunities and helps you to succeed in life.

    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.
