Florida Gulf Coast is an amazing school. Everyone is spirited, and everyone is sweet. There are a lot of options to get involved, and there is help ready for you whenever you need it. Oh, and the campus is beautiful!

FGCU is a small school that is growing very fast. There are small class sizes and plenty of opportunities to get involved on campus.
