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!

The faculty and staff make you feel very welcomed and never criticise my accent but instead welcome my Caribbean perspectives on the arts and even political topics of discussion. Moreover, my college recognizes that diversity and inclusion is essential to the college experience, establishing gender neutral bathrooms, promoting cultural awareness during International Education Week and allowing a plethora of clubs and organizations on our campus. I recognize that i am different from the typical student yet I feel just as included as a U.S. citizen (college student). If there is one recommendation I would make, it would be for the beautiful efforts towards diversity and inclusion to be emphasized more on the other campuses (not just the Thomas Edison campus) and that FSWSGA be promoted a lot more. They enable all of the students' voices to be heard, but I feel like they're not given the recognition they deserve.
I've toured the school and it was a wonderful experience! Everyone that I have come in contact with seems very nice and willing to help. The class size is not too big, about 20-25 students per class. The campuses are beautiful and are located in and around pretty safe areas. It is a good school to start off at for a good price.
