Campus Visit Notes for Florida Southern College


Visit Description:

Had a great visit, confirmed what my D is looking for in a small college. Everyone was nice, D's name was on the wall welcoming her. For a small private college, FSC has alot going for it. I have no hesitation that D would get the education she is looking for by going to FSC. Lake Hollingsworth is gorgeous and their fitness facility has exercise equipment that faces the lake what a view. Can also jog/run around the lake.
