Internationally recognized for changing lives, Florida Southern is committed to connecting international students with real-world experiences.
We’re like a family here. I really feel comfortable and welcome and have so much appreciation for the type of relationship that is built within a small, cozy community. Professors know me by name and are eager to help. That is exactly what I wanted when I chose this school and the academic and social atmosphere has gone above and beyond my expectations.

One of the best things about Florida Southern is the support I have received here. With the help of my professors and the career center, I was able to network with a local employer, JBT Foodtech, a world-renowned market leader in the citrus industry. After interning there, I was hired as their marketing coordinator for Liquid Food Solutions. After graduation, I was given a sponsorship and currently have a temporary work visa!
