Florida Southwestern State College Reviews
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.
I am involved in dual enrollment, but still go on campus. It is your very simple and basic community college, nothing too special but a degree is a degree! I find the professors to be great, and I feel like I truly learn a lot. The college campus is outdoors and very pretty and the Florida weather never gets too cold, pretty humid sometimes though. I have never seen the student housing, had a return on investment, or seen the food. I do know that theres nice chains on campus, and the location is in a great area in Fort Myers with a lot to do in the area.
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!
