Stetson has a great academic reputation, but if you're reading here, you're looking at places to see. Several 100 plus year old buildings make up the core campus and the landscaping is simply spectacular. Definitely worth a stop, especially if you're an architecture fan.

I love this campus! It's more like a park than a university. Giant, old trees everywhere. Beautifully landscaped. Historic buildings. Very Zen. Don't miss the Museum of Art and Stetson Mansion. Lots of great places to eat in the area also. Totally worth a trip to DeLand.

Love visiting this campus. Very quaint. We were there for a football recruiting visit and really enjoyed the trip. My personal preference is to stay in Daytona Beach and make the 15-minute drive to Deland.

There is so much beauty everywhere you look and the history of the Mansion is a real gem for Deland and Central Florida.

My daughter graduated from this university in 2006, got a good job and has done very well since then. The education is exceptional and a good investment. Small classes with successful business and professional people with actual real world experience at successful & well know companies

Came with high school students for a choral festival. Very Old and new buildings, The old ones, well smelled VERY musty and had very few bathrooms. The library and other newer buildings were fine. Everyone was very friendly and a beautifully landscaped campus and dorm setting.

We were here last weekend for an Open House with our son, who is a high school junior. Both his orchestra and vocal directors highly recommend the music program. It is a beautiful campus nestled in DeLand, lots of trees and wonderful old architecture. It's a small private college so class size allows for much individual attention from the professors....

Founded in 1883, Stetson continues to set the standard for excellence in medium sized, private universities in Florida. Its four colleges provide high quality education in various fields for its 4,100+ undergraduate and graduate students. It is a campus alive with activity during the academic year, including a full menu of activities beyond the classroom. The drive north from downtown... More

Since it was a holiday weekend, we didn't get into the art museum or any of the buildings, but found the campus a pleasant place to walk and the architecture was quite interesting.
