Sharing ideas and experiences is an integral part of the Florida Southern experience, and our spaces are designed to foster those kinds of interactions.
There’s never a dull moment on campus! Due to our lovely Florida weather, we are able to host outdoor events all year long. This includes outdoor movie nights, live music, and many other campus club-hosted activities. Of course, there are always the annual campus traditions like the Southern Takeover concert series and Winter Wonderland, but day-to-day there is always something for our Mocs to get involved in.
Campus is full of popular hang out spots, but living on campus also gives you the means to explore all of the amazing hidden spots as well. While TuTu’s is the place to be, many of our Mocs choose to study outside the Planetarium, in the McKay Archives, or in the common spaces of their dorms. There’s so many more hidden gems, you’ll just have to come check them out.
Living on campus puts you right in the center of the action while keeping you close to all the resources you may need. We have facilities for both mental and physical health, a multitude of dining options, a recreational center, and a beautiful lakefront view. The amenities of campus paired with the proximity to downtown Lakeland is the perfect combination for an awesome college experience.
Florida Southern is truly just one big community. Being on campus puts you in the best spot to meet new people, learn new things, and be a part of something bigger. The best moments are those you least expect like playing pool games in Spivey or baking cookies in the Fannin center. Forge connections, learn from those around you, and grow to your greatest potential.
Life at Florida Southern isn’t just about what you do in the classroom. With more than 100 student clubs and organizations, life outside the classroom can be just as engaging.
