Stetson University Reviews
Food in the Commons (buffet-style cafeteria) and Hatter StrEats is poorly flavored, overly greasy, or under/overcooked. Einstein's is good but only open in the AMs. Healthy menu items are rare.
Job fairs cater to Accounting and Finance majors. Education majors get set up with local schools as part of their senior year; Arts & Sciences seniors write capstone thesis papers, while School of Business Administration students complete two "experiential learning requirements," AKA two internships.
Overall, pricey but worth it if you can get a good scholarship and want a decent education with more personalized attention than at a big university such as FSU. Dorms other than Chaudoin and Hatter Hall are known to have thin walls and rowdy residents.
