Florida Southern Seeks to Create a Community of Scholars who Hold One Another Accountable to the High Ideals, Vision, and Mission of the College.

Choosing to join the community obligates each member to a code of behavior that reflects the highest personal and communal values to which the college is committed.

Florida Southern College’s goal of producing good citizens who make a lasting impact on their communities is advanced by the quality of campus life in the college community. Through shared values and communal expectations, Florida Southern College engenders a specific atmosphere where students can study, socialize, rest and grow as they pursue their academic goals. Campus life creates a positive and enriching environment that cares for the whole person — developing maturity of character that is the aim of the College. The Cornerstone outlines the standard of behavior that forms a basis for academic and social life.
