Admissions Interview: Yes - Met with my admissions counselor, but had already been accepted to the college, so therefore was not a formal interview that would affect my admissions decision. I was able to ask all of my questions.
Information Session: Yes - Very informative. I arrived on campus with a long list of questions written out but this answered the majority of them (the other ones got answered later on that day). Was able to ask questions too.
Campus Tour: Yes - Most beautiful campus Ive ever seen- cant describe. Campus tour's partly on bus for the sake of time but the campus is not big, so easily could be navigated on foot. Covers main points of interes
Classroom Visit: Yes - During campus tour, visited an empty classroom. Able to sit in the room, good size, slightly better/more upgraded from 'average' (compared to what I've seen).
Campus Visit Notes for Florida Southern College
Let me start off with saying that this is my first choice school. I'm from NJ but I've known for years my future is in FL. I visited on a tuesday, and the weekend prior they had had an admissions event-- on top of the fact that it's a small school-- I figured there wouldn't be many pros. students on tour with me. There were 2 others, myself, (girl, NJ), another girl from OOS, and one international girl. There were also 3 student-tour guides- 2 girls from FL and 1 boy from OOS. We all stayed together and looked at major points of the campus and discussed any questions. I enjoyed the tour because since there was literally a 1:1 tour guide to pros. student ratio, it wasn't overwhelming and they could answer our questions, and cater the tour to us/our areas of interest. We took an admissions small bus to the west end of campus from the admissions building, which is on the east end. From there, we walked most of the tour but briefly rode in the bus at times. The campus was amazing. Saw the waterdome, library, TuTu's cyber cafe (which is basically starbucks), the grillmaster- burgers and stuff grilled right in front of you. We saw the pool, the gym, the caf and undercaf (Wynee's Bistro, the moc mart), the Buck Stop (quick pizza outdoors), the outside of several dorm rooms and the bookstore. We walked past many Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, like the Annie Pfieffer Chapel, the science building (whose name I forget), and others. I was on this tour over a month ago, so I unfortunately don't remember everything.
It was overall a good experience, great community, beautiful campus, and hopefully the campus I will attend next fall.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
n/a. Was on a family trip to Walt Disney World, rented a car for the day, and drove the 30-ish minute trip to FSC.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Ate on campus, received a free in the admissions office after the tour. It was mentioned but not automatically given, all we had to do was ask and they wrote one up for me and my parents.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Parking on-campus across from the admissions office. If visiting, read the email they sent you, and unless coming from west, enter campus on east, not main entrance- it's closer to admissions bld
