Overall Rating

I really like Florida Gateway. The staff is always helpful and all the students are really nice. It feels like a true college environment not like a high school. The other day I got to school earlier than I intended and one of the workers there let me in the classroom early. I thought that was really nice that the staff member did that for me. Any tips I would have for prospective students is to get there early for your classes sometimes parking close is a bit difficult.

Overall Rating

The campus is really pretty. There is a brand new library that is so amazing I don't even know how to describe it. The new library has a cafe, computers, books, movies, cd's a study area and it is so amazing to look at. There are also flowers everywhere. They are remodeling a building. There is a huge performing arts center. They also always have different things going on, like a spring festival, free food events, and back to school events. They offer so many different events and clubs to get students involved with the school.
