About Stetson University

Our mission at Stetson University is to provide an excellent education in a creative community where learning and values meet, and to foster in students the qualities of mind and heart that will prepare them to reach their full potential as informed citizens of local communities and the world.

At Stetson, the art of teaching is practiced through programs solidly grounded in a tradition of liberal learning that stimulates critical thinking, imaginative inquiry, creative expression, and lively intellectual debate. The art of learning is enhanced through small interactive classes, close student-faculty alliances, and collaborative approaches that provide the foundation for rewarding careers and advanced study in selective graduate and professional programs. We embrace diverse methodologies to foster effective communication, information and technological literacy, and aesthetic appreciation. We encourage the development of informed convictions, independent judgment, and lifelong commitments to learning that are characteristic features of the enlightened citizen. In bringing together learning and values, the University encourages all of its members to demonstrate personal integrity; to develop an appreciation for the spiritual dimension of life; to embrace leadership in an increasingly complex, interdependent, and technological world; and to commit to active forms of social responsibility.

I think that Stetson University is an overall good school. The university will challenge you academically in order to prepare you for the life ahead. It tries to create as many opportunities to make new friends and be active in the community of Deland. Our facilities have that older vibe to them due to the fact Stetson is one of the oldest universities, but they still are top-notch. Sports wise we play big name schools, which is cool because of how small the population at Stetson is.

My favorite part about stetson is the fact that it makes you feel that just by going their you have already accomplished something great. To someone who is debating attending I would tell them not to be afraid of the price because the moment you start attending classes you know it is worth it.
