I loved the tight knit community. The minute I got here for Scholars Weekend, I knew I was home.

Lucas Blackwell

I applied to nearly 30 colleges, not really knowing what I wanted. But when my Southern Ambassador showed me how I could pursue all my interests, I knew I found my college home.
Sophie Talbert

Sophie Talbert

I chose Florida Southern after having a fantastic experience at Scholars Weekend during my senior year of high school and realizing it’s the only school I visited that made me feel welcomed and at home since day one! I absolutely love the small class sizes and the personal connections I have made with my professors. Although I am only a sophomore, I already feel extremely connected to the school and have learned so much about my future career field in my classes.

Sebastian Mendoza

After seeing all that Florida Southern had to offer, I remember thinking: 'What's the point of looking any further?'

Without my excellent education at FSC, I truly believe that I would not be where I am today career-wise. The professors at FSC are so knowledgeable in their fields and really inspire me to continue learning and pursue research.
