the warmth of our reception was very welcoming, and the experience + depth of knowledge of our docent was impressive. We were able to navigate the lovely campus on our own, but recommend the $7pp introduction at Usonian House as a preamble.

Really enjoy having this college in my town. The architecture is amazing. Having lived near Falling Waters previously, you can really appreciate Frank Lloyd Wrights artistry.

I just retired from being a paid docent at the largest unified collection of Wright architecture, the west campus of Florida Southern College. Since I am no longer employed by Florida Southern, I would like to give you some insights as to how to best spend your money and get the most for the buck. Above all, do not purchase... More

Always have liked the college location by Lake Hollingsworth. Very pretty , landscaped nicely with the walking path around the lake right next to the school. Always have heard good reviews about the school.

This is a beautiful campus and an easy walk tour . It houses the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. The volunteer that run the lectures at the Usonian House are great. Some of the buildings are under renovation or in planning stages, so be patient. My favorite is the Danforth Chapel, on the renovation list. FSC hosts many... More

My wife wanted to visit here whilst we were in Lakeland, and I'm really glad we did. We spent far longer here than planned, simply cos' it's such a fascinating place. I won't spoil the story of how Ludd Spivey persuaded Wright to undertake this monumental project, read it for yourself, it's really clever. What is also amazing is that... More

Campus is beautiful. Road construction lead to some convoluted routing but that is temporary. Quite different from the state universities and UM campuses. Love the latter but this is serene.

Visit the original Frank Lloyd Wright buildings and you will be amazed. Of course, I am an architect so I was impressed. You will be too. The chapel is especially interesting. My favorite is the small chapel. Go! Take the self guided tour or a scheduled tour. It's worth it.

We made a Saturday side trip to Lakeland specifically to see the FLW buildings, this after checking the website and reading that access to the buildings is not limited on weekends. Got to the campus and had a very difficult time finding the visitor's center. Once there (it's gorgeous and certainly worth seeing), we were sold a very poor $5... More
