If you are looking at colleges for medical, business and arts this small college should not be overlooked. Its been on the Princeton Report for years as one of the most beautiful colleges in America. This years' freshman class boasts 14 valedictorians, 4 with perfect ACT scores and 1 with a perfect SAT score. They added a Ballet program, and... More

Very enjoyable if you like modern architecture. A visit is best part of a day seeing a couple of different tourist sites unless you're an FLW enthusiast. Park on the large car park on Johnson Ave (a one way street from the lakeside) although there are two disabled parking spaces near the visitor centre. The FLW visitor centre and gift... More

Today we visited the lovely town of Lakeland, Florida and the Florida Southern College. The entire campus was designed by Wright and we took the 2.5 hour tour. This town has the largest collection of Wright architecture in the world. Jim was our guide and he spoke the entire time. His knowledge and anecdotes were boundless. Several buildings are undergoing... More

We first visited this school August 2014. We feel in love with the campus and the staff. Each time we visit, we learn and see more of the dramatic history and amazing architecture work of Frank Lloyd Wright. If you have a teenager and are looking into a well ran college, FSC is the spot! A diamond in the state... More

If you are in the area, this is a must-see for anyone interested in Architecture. To best enjoy the experience, suggest making prior arrangements to take a tour (especially the in-depth tour). The docents are consistently very good. The college buildings are being restored, which adds to their stories. The Usonian House is not restored, it is new! (built to... More

For anyone interested in FLWright's architectural masterpieces, a visit to FL Southern College is a must. The uniqueness of the old buildings, based on Wright's designs is awesome. The College does a great job in maintaining and protecting the uniqueness of the designs as created by FLW ! The guides are knowledgeable, informative and really add to the visit !

The tour of original FLW buildings and the Usonian house was absolutely amazing! Our tour guide was a pleasure to spend time with. His love for the school and it's architecture showed! It was a privilege to see the interiors and experience the craftsmanship first hand. It was a gorgeous day in a special place.

Frank Llyod Wright was a great architect and seeing this college campus lets you see. Not the new parts but the old sections. It is very interesting.

I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. While others seemed amazed with the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, I was not quite so enthusiastic.
