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.
Review Edison State College
I have taken both on campus and online courses at Edison State College. All have been good and challenging. The staff and curriculum have been top notch! The material was well presented and organized by the instructors a left me knowing the content and well prepared for application in my desired profession of Healthcare.
I started going to Florida SouthWestern State College, previously called Edison State college, approximately 3 years ago. I began at this college while being a Junior in high school. I can't complain, my time at FSW has been pretty good. The people are nice and friendly. It's not a very big campus but I would definitely say there is a big student body. Every week there is always something to do on campus so you never get bored. The cafeteria has great food and it's not too pricey. Every once in a while, there's free lemonade or free ice cream around campus. We even have a Dunkin's Donuts which is situated right next to our library and several rooms in the library in which we can study. The professors are not bad at all, they're very understanding and always willing to help. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because we are missing a starbucks haha. Oh and we are getting an arena soon so it will definitely be worth checking out!
