What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
Florida Southern is the home I have been looking for in every school I attended. You really are not a number here, but a person, and there is always someone to help you. I have found a family here and know that my college experience will be everything I've ever dreamed for it.
Erica from Schnecksville, PA
Florida Southern is a hub of energy on a beautiful campus; it may be expensive but you definitely get your money's worth. The professors are some of the most kind and caring individuals and so are most of the students in the student body. I had high expectations of college and I was sure they would be dashed once I got here, but FSC completely lives up to those expectations!
