Florida Southwestern state college is an excellent choice for anyone looking to attend a community college. I went to this school along with my mother years ago when it was known as Edison State college and we both enjoyed our experienced gained at this school. The teachers and staff are knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly they make attending college less stressful and provide insight on the different courses available at the campus. They also have an array of campuses and online courses available to make accommodating the student body more feasible. I would recommend this college to anyone looking to further their education.

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!
It is a great school for adult students and "fresh out of high school" freshman alike! Me, being a first-time college student in my mid-twenties, I was a little hesitant to go back to school, on campus. It was a relief seeing how hands-on the Professors are, both online and on campus. Professor Van Boven is a MUST HAVE TEACHER!
