Eastern Florida State College Reviews
For the most part, great staff and good student atmosphere! There's a good diversity of students. The campus (at least the Melbourne one) has/ is being updated. Student housing is supposed to be built in the near future! As far as a party scene... I'd say you'd be better off going to a university. It is your basic community college, although they have done a great job redoing it.
It's a good transition college! They have a few programs here as well that makes it a four-year university and those options are amazing due to the price and the more one-on-one relationship between the student and the professor. One thing that I can say is that (at least my campus) mainly treats you like you're still in high school; that becomes frustrating when you're an adult with a job and you skipped one too many classes because your kid was sick and even though you're keeping up with the coursework you still get booted from the class. I understand that they have the policies they have in place due to the large concentration of dual-enrolled high school students but it would be better if the full-blown college students who are actually paying and the high school sophomore were treated a little differently. Otherwise, it's a great school and worth looking into as a stopping place when you're looking to get yourself all figured out.
Professors are great! All of my courses taken so far were taught with very understanding professors who cared about your education. Class sizes are not large whatsoever, probably seating 30 students max. All campuses are great but I prefer the Cocoa campus. Highly recommend attending Eastern Florida State College for your first 2 years of education. Classes range from 16 weeks to 8 weeks, which is convenient. It's cheaper than going to a University, and you also have more time to decide on a major. Go to EFSC!
