Why Florida Southern?

When I visited Florida Southern as a high schooler, I was struck by the overall sense of community on campus and throughout the student body. I loved how involved everyone was with on campus organizations, jobs, and academics. I knew I wanted a smaller school, and Florida Southern offered that while still having many of the opportunities that larger schools had. I also really loved the location on Lake Hollingsworth and how beautiful campus was.

What has been your favorite class?

I really enjoyed my Oceanography class my freshman year. We did a lot of hands on activities and the class was really engaging.
