Stetson University Reviews
I love the fact that Stetson is a small campus with a student population of a little over 3000 students. That way, professors will be more attentive to their students vs a university with 60000 students and classrooms with 300 students. The campus itself is very warm and friendly! As you are walking around campus, you are eagerly being greeted by students, staff, and administration that are willing to help give you directions to your destination or even answering questions that a freshmen or transfer student may have. Stetson University is the university that you’d want to go to if you love a close, welcoming atmosphere as well as a stable relationship with your professor.
Stetson is a great school! Since it is small, professors really get to know you and they actually care about you and can spend more time helping you. Everyone is super nice, including the students. There are tons of opportunities for you to grow and get involved. The town DeLand is a cute close-knit community, there are tons of way to be involved outside of campus as well. The only downside of this school is the cost, it can be pretty expensive and there are many ways that you can get charged (like losing your dorm key). If you're looking for a party school, Stetson is not the school for you. Stetson is very academic and rigourous, so the lack of a party life may be downside if that is what you are looking for.
This is a really wonderful school, close to Orlando and Daytona but not too heavily populated. Communication was one of the biggest factors I looked at when choosing my school, and Stetson was the only school that was always responsive and quick to help applicants, and that responsiveness and welcomeness remains once you’re a student here. The campus is gorgeous, the professors are extremely patient and knowledgeable, and there are a plethora of opportunities to study abroad or explore beyond your major. The school starts you off on their “Stetson Promise” which promises to pay tuition for a semester extra in case you don’t graduate in four years, and it guarantees opportunities to apply your knowledge in labs for science majors or performances for music majors rather than compete with graduate students for those opportunities.
