Eckerd College Reviews
Review Eckerd College
I absolutely love the college I go to! The professors are incredibly understanding and passionate about what they teach, and are willing to help students out whenever they are needed whether or not it's office hours or not. I also love how 98% of the students and staff and the college are 100% approachable and they are very kind and interesting to speak to. We also have a beach and swing sets to keep the child inside of us all alive, but my absolute favorite characteristic of this college is that they allow you to keep your pets on campus so you'll never have to be apart from your furry friend again! This college really caters to students' needs and if I had to do it all over again I would pick this college every time.
Living on campus, once you go through the hell of the housing process (people), is quite lovely. The dorms aren't huge but they're always clean, people are generally friendly and quiet, dorms are priced well, both depending on the dorm you're in, and the beach is only a couple hundred feet away. The only issue is the housing people themselves. My college usually does a room draw, but due to an emergency and timing, I wasn't able to attend. When I told the head of housing, she was incredibly rude and I still don't know what room I'm supposed to be in!
Eckerd College more amazing people working there than you'd ever expect when first looking at the school. Having professors who really want to work with you and see you succeed seriously does make all the difference. The rowdy party scene also doesn't hurt my rating of the school, though the amount of sexual assaults which occur on-campus and are covered up by the school heavily encouraging men and women to not report to the police is....heavily concerning. The food also has a tendency to roll the stomachs of anyone who doesn't have iron organs, and what's worse, there's no 24/7 place to eat on campus. There are very strict meal times in the cafeteria, and the meal plan is absolutely enforced (if you look in the handbook, it says the only way to get off it is a medical note from the Dr.!) which extremely cost-inefficient when there are free weekly shuttles to Wal-Mart. Other than that, Eckerd's a great place, would highly recommend.
