    For being such a large school, the classroom sizes are small for a better learning experience. All of my professors have been extremely helpful when needed and you can definitely count on them for any help or questions regarding anything. I hope to continue my education there and absolutely love it! Could not have asked for a better school to attend.

    The Florida Institute of Technology provides substantial education from industry certified and heavily accredited professors. You can expect to be taught everything you need, in order to find success in your chosen career path. You’ll meet a wide variety of students from all over the world. The campus is full of culture and diversity. I can’t say the same for the local area, unfortunately. You will hear talk of “Melboring.”
    Though the environment is light and fun, academics standing and expectations are very tough. The school do facilities multiple academic support centers for all subjects matters to see students through the rigor of the curriculum. Classes are small, so all your professors know you and attendance is mandatory. There is much to do to keep you active outside of academics, from social and cultural clubs, dance groups, academic societies and non varsity team sports.

    The food selection and flavors are just amazing in every eating location. There are several pools throughout the campus to keep you cool. A relaxing botanical gardens on campus makes for the perfect serene place to get away from it all.
