I love the diverse community that make up the student body on campus! There are so many people from different towns, states, and even countries! On top of this, each person sports a myriad of interests, classes, and work experience. Students are very ambitious at this campus, which allows you to surround yourself with people who strive to be the very best at whatever they apply themselves to. Ultimately this pushes you to challenge what you know, defend what you believe in, and in the end, make you a better person.

My experience with Florida South Western state college so far has been really good. It’s a good college to start off with, the vibe it gives offf is calm and helpful. I was blessed with two free years and I honestly love it. I do admit I am not takin much advantage and I feel like I should try harder. But overall it’s a great school and would definitely recommend it!
My experience at FSW was pretty good! I was a little nervous when starting because I didn’t know what to fully expect. I met many new people and saw friends I had known years back which was amazing. I connected with many different people in such a short time because we all understood the “aspects” of college life. The teachers I had were great! They were caring and made learning the subject fun. It made me excited to come to class everyday. Overall my semester at FSW was everything better and more
