Eastern Florida State College Reviews
The advisors are the biggest asset at EFSC they are very helpful and truly listen to the students with anything they need help with! Some professors are flexible and work with their students to get things done and are most always availbe. On the other hand I have had teachers say things to the class "college isnt for everyone" discourging the class from taking the course and college all together (while handing back our tests she had just graded, and was the best rated teacher for that class), I had another professor tell us on the first day of class "if you have any questions or you're unsure of something, do not ask me ask a classmate and figure it out" and we were only allowed to do so at when the class was over. Tutoring is very limited to only things like math, english, and other languages. I will say that during COVID-19 and most classes being online, teachers are being flexible as to when you can turn things which is great! Best piece of advice, make sure you look up the teacher
They have a few campus locations which is nice and recently added a few bachlor programs. Although there is no studentlife/parties or clubs , the campus locations are conventily located .If a student does get want a bachlor degree they don't really have the option to pick what classes they want for their degree as the degrees are limited. I would say 75% teachers are great teachers really want to see you do well and will help when needed, but the advisors are so sweet and very helpful! Its a great college to get a AA, AS, or certificate but if a student wants further education like thier bachlors degree then they will have much more opportunities at a university.
I attend the Melbourne Campus of EFSC and it is a great environment to learn in. Especially since they have built the new Student Union Building, it functions as a cafe, study hall, and hang out area. It has a very beautiful open floor plan (they have also begun to build dorms too). That is not the only thing that makes this school great, it is diverse, has friendly staff, it is cleanly, and you receive a great education at EFSC. It is a great "starter" school as well to take interesting classes to discover what your passion may be, it helped me in my own discovery. It also accepts high schoolers to attend as a way of getting ahead in their college careers 100% free (if their high school offers the opportunity of Dual Enrollment and/or Collegiate High Program). Highly recommend!
