Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

The school is very welcoming and has a friendly atmosphere. The advisers are extremely knowledgable and eager to help you even if your like me and you ask a million and one questions. The school is situated in beautiful Jacksonville with amazing wildlife and water all around. i love the fact that i can go to the beach right down the road for some downtime. The best tip i would give to someone would be to apply early and always email. I email the nursing department quite frequently and they are always really quick to get get back to me.

Overall Rating

I love this school, and I think it is very under-rated! Just because we dont have a football team, people think it is a dinky school. But I love the campus, the city, the classes, etc... almost no complaints!! The sporting events are fun, I love playing intramurals, and the honors program is really awesome!!
