Full disclaimer, I am a little partial because my Daughter graduated from Stetson, but with that aside it is the most beautiful campus that I have visited. The stately tree fill the campus and the buildings are a blend of old and new. The walk ways between buildings are lovely and for the most part the campus is dog friendly.Also... More

We visit this University with my daughter. We really liked the area, the town is very friendly. We liked the school, I also liked the fact that they have only 3300 students, so class size is very small. They have a lot of clubs, and a lot of community services.

The campus is beautiful. We attended the evening Christmas concert put on by the students. Listening to the music, singing along for a few songs made it a very enjoyable evening. It is worth the money. This was our second time. Only suggestion would be for the individuals taking the tickets, it could be better organized.

This is a very beautiful campus located convenient to many locations such as Downtown, which is only a block away - where many local restaurants and beautiful areas are. Despite it being in construction, the green is maintained so well and it is the perfect place to have a hammock on a warm, sunny day. Even taking a short walk... More

Attending the Candlelight Christmas Concert was well worth a 2 hour drive to get from home to Deland. The music school presents an especially classic concert.

I've always enjoyed this campus. It has historic buildings and their grounds are beautiful. Some of the best musicians come from this University.

My parents both went to Stetson and my father was in the first graduating class from the "new" St. Pete, Stetson Law School in 1957. I have had two aunts, one uncle and a cousin who attended as well as my husband. Long before I went to Stetson, their Glee Club would come and sing at our church, First Baptist,... More

Very nice campus...compact but has a lot of character. Right on edge of wonderful small town which adds to the University's "personality". Very nice way to spend half-a-day.

The university is beautiful. I love the historic homes in the area. Downtown Deland is quaint and very involved with supporting the university. We ate dinner at Tony's italian resturant, and it was great!

Studied there, loved the life style there. It's quiet, beautiful, also rich in history. The campus is totally different than my school in CA, it has the old building, nice palm tree, beautiful landscaping, and cute fountain! Around the school there are few restaurants, Thrift stores, and also the museums. GREAT LOCATION! Also very close to Daytona Beach! I stayed... More
