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!
I love Eckerd, but it would be even better if the tuition was lower. It's my dream school but it's stressful trying to find funds for what may be my last year. I have good scholarships don't get me wrong it's just I wish school was more affordable. I love the friends I've made and I really do have so much hope in store for this next year. I've come so far and I'm only entering my sophmore year! Professors are super helpful and understanding. Life is great and I get an even better experience of school when I press into the resources that are there and readily available just for me! It's great.
