Edison State College Reviews
My experience at Edison State College (now known as Florida Southwestern State University) has been phenomenal! The Student life is great, Edison does a great job with making you feel at home no matter what day it is. The first week is known as "Welcoming Week" and is full of great opportunities to become more familiar with your school and receive cool, free stuff! I would recommend this school to everyone, especially those with a low income!
While Edison, now rebranded as Florida Southwestern State College, isn't as big of a college as other state colleges, it provides a no-frills education which helps many achieve their dream career. This small college makes up for its size with its vibrant student body. This tight-knit college community encompasses what the college experience should be and the faculty members are always friendly and ready to ensure you succeed.
I have attended this state college since I was in high school as a dual enrollment student and I have seen this institution grow so much. I began doing my general education courses and then gained acceptance into their dental hygiene program which was very different from the general education atmosphere. In the dental hygiene program, the students and teachers were much more dedicated and prepared, you received a lot of feedback from the instructors in order to improve your performance and ultimately graduate as an outstanding clinician. Outside of this department, the school has also been successful in doing their best to make sure there are plenty of extra curricular activities and events to motivate their students towards academic success, building relationships, and anything else that might help them boil a better future. It's not exactly the college experience you see in the movies but it's definitely an option for those who are just beginning their college experience or don't have the ability to relocate in order to attend college.
