What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Apply early and apply for any scholarships you can find, especially the Bonner Scholars program.
Jasmine from Titusville, FL
I believe that if you are looking for a cozy and calm school that will help you in any way possible, this is the school.
Sebastian from Deltona, FL
Apply early! If you are a music student, go in and audition in person as soon as you can, and after you are accepted to the university. The sooner you audition, the greater chance you have of earning a good scholarship (same with any other school). Also, keep an umbrella on hand and do your work the day it is assigned to allow you to have more free time (it really works!).
Kayla from Jacksonville, NC
Be prepared to write many papers and study really hard. Depending upon what professors you receive, you could have a lot more work in one class. Overall, all of the professors are very nice and it is a great environment to be in.
Keegan from Wesley Chapel, FL
Get your crazy streak out in your first semester or so, then hit the ground running. Once you find your major and where you belong you'll know and it'll be impossible to keep you away from your passions!
Rebekah from Brandon, FL
If you plan on going to Stetson, just be prepared for rigorous academics mixed with a casual, small town atmosphere. Don't expect to party every night, but there's always something going on during the weekend. Just be prepared to put in the effort for your education, and have fun with the rest.

As mentioned many times, Stetson University is a small school, population-wise, so it is important to get involved. Fortunately, there are more than plenty chances to do so, with over 100 active organizations. From campus ministries, to Greek life, to intramural sports, academic clubs, innumerous community service opportunities, there are so many things to get plugged into, and I highly recommend it. It will take some time to learn the right balance between student involvement and academics, but I do not think anyone should ever have to choose between one or the other. Get involved, and get to know the people around you; it’s a small campus, so you’ll see them a lot!
In addition to that, I advise getting to know the community. I love food, and a great way to learn about DeLand is to visit the many mom-and-pop local restaurants (not all at once, of course). Small businesses tend to suffer in economic times such as these-- they can use student support, and we can benefit from their services, so utilize them! DeLand, although small, is a nice kind of small, with a cute main street right next to campus. Visit it, learn it, love it.

Join an on campus organization. If you do so, you will have plenty of friends and never be bored. Also, take advantage of the small class sizes. Classes can be challenging, but the professors are all very willing to help.

The biggest tip is come visit the campus! There are campus tours practically all year round. When I was a prospective student, Stetson had several informational meetings near where I lived as well as at the university. These meetings always have alumni, staff, and students who will tell you everything you need to know to make your decision. The Stetson website is also pretty informative.
Jasmine from Palm Coast, FL
When coming into Stetson take time to get yourself organized and never leave anything the last minute. Sure that test is a month away, but sooner or later your other professor will want an essay due in two weeks, then the other class wants a project due next week. Basically you will find yourself with no time to study if you leave everything last minute. So, for the sake of your sanity start everything early. Another important item that you WILL need is a planner. This will be your survival guide for the whole year, it keeps you organized and sane. Ultimately, do not forget to also have fun in college and socialize. One of the things that has kept me going was the support of my teachers, friends and my helpful study buddies.
