Beautiful campus! Haven’t been inside too many of the buildings, but the lacrosse field is great, we attended all the home games last season and plan on doing so again next season. Coach Ward is a great guy.

Take the tour of the buildings. Learn about the architecture that is Frank Lloyd Wright. The tour is well worth the time and the money.

We had a 1 hour tour, should have done the 2 hour tour! Very informative but we wanted more! Our docent was well informed and friendly. I knew nothing about Frank Lloyd Wright or his concepts, and learned a lot.

Florida Southern is a great local school. Tuition is very expensive since it is a private school, however they do offer a lot of scholarship opportunities for students.

The campus is very pretty with older architecture and new modern architecture. The nursing building was amazing. The staff was freindly, knowledgeable, made you feel like it was one big family on campus. A lot of pride.

Went to dinner here because we saw an advertisement that made it look like a nice restaurant...disappointed here because it was date night. It is the typical college foodcourt with food stations - pay one price for everything there. Great selection and food was fresh...More

The food was excellent. As a 70 year old man, it was refreshing to be around so many young people who treated us with kindness and respect.

You do have to walk to see the buildings. They are fairly close together but there are steps to navigate.
