Stetson is the oldest private college in Florida and is steeped in history. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. It is a nationally ranked liberal arts college.

We did the university tour today and were very impressed. Wonderful architecture, beautiful grounds, and a really interesting history. Stetson has 2 art galleries and a huge library. Student life looks great, complete with a heated pool, work out facilities, and a huge dining area. Definitely going to have my son apply. Hope to be back soon!

I enjoyed my time at Stetson and learned a great deal. My only complaint is the price...the amazing part is that it keeps going up each year!

The campus and the surrounding... More

I found myself coming back to Stetson several times to bike around the campus and take in the beautiful architecture and fountains. Definitely check out what they have going on at the art gallery - right on the main quad - seems like a very impressive collection!

Stetson has such a modern and beautiful campus. We found it easily and were surprised how large it is. The downtown area right next to campus is very charming.
