Eckerd College Reviews
This is my favorite place in the entire world. There is something for everyone here! If a beach and waterfront weren't enough for you, then add in an entire marine science and art building to sweeten the deal. People are always so friendly here and there is always someone to help you at every corner. The teachers are nice and personal and really do try to help you succeed.
Eckerd College is an excellent learning facility. All staff and faculty are completely and absolutely devoted to their students. The peer mentor program is unlike any other and an excellent resource for all freshman students, having a peer mentor available to ask advice and questions has really benefitted me and improved my overall academic success. The college is dedicated to the safety and security of each and every one of their students. Student mental and physical health as well as their feelings of self-confidence and safety to be who they are is the most important thing to the Eckerd Administration. To any student considering Eckerd College, you should know you will receive not just an excellent education, but the attention, dedication and care for all faculty and staff that each and every student deserves.
Eckerd is everything I've ever asked for. The professors are passionate about what they're teaching and are very open-minded and understanding. I am the rare transgender students and I was welcomed with open arms even. I roomed where I felt comfortable. The campus is beautiful and the facilities are amazing. The students are great. The campus isn't very diverse, but I can tell that there are more people coming from different backgrounds. The advisors are amazing and want to help you succeed. I would recommend this college to anyone looking for rigorous coursework and an accepting community.
