    the dorms and food either by the dorms or on campus is amazing. hygiene is better than any place i visited. There are plenty of event on and off campus to keep you entertained and the class sizes makes it impossible to fail if you go and talk to your professor at least three times and try.

    FGCU is one of the cheapest Universities in the state. For the amount you're spending, you're getting dorms that are practically brand new, awesome professors, entertainment, and an experience you'll never forget.

    It really depends on your whole perspective. This topic seems as though it would be different for everyone. So, personally Love my decision to go to FGCU. I will say that there are some things that the Administration could improve, in terms of policies and such. (Won't go into too much detail) but all-in-all it's a really great place to go to school. If you like: personal space in your room, small class sizes, nice students/faculty, a beautiful campus that's not too big to where you'll have to walk far to get to class, quality education, and a fun college experience then FGCU is right for you!
