Overall, I really love Eckerd College. What I like most is the close-knit, friendly environment. I have many memorable experiences but I would say that Autumn term was really the most fun I have ever had in my life!

Overall Rating

Eckerd is in FL where it is always sunny and beautiful and has an amazing campus. We have a beach on our campus and are in a prime location right next to the interstate making it easy to get anywhere. I am truly happy everyday and studying is 10x easier when your sitting in a hammock on the beach.
