I VISITED THE SCHOOL WITH A FRIEND THAT ATTENDS FGCU, I WAS SO TAKEN BY THE CAMPUS AND THE STUDENTS. AND THE RELATIONSHIP THEY HAD WITH THE FACULTY OF THE SCHOOL, THAT I IMMEDIATELY PUT FGCU AS THE TOP UNIVERSITY I WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND. AND BEING A FASTPITCH SOFTBALLPLAYER I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITIES TO VISIT MANY COLLEGES THRU OUT OUR COUNTRY. THANK YOU
I liked the laidback atmosphere. The students seemed calm and happy and I love all the palm trees. I like the variety of majors to choose from and the option to participate in intramural sports. I also liked the modern buildings and the fact that the school always seems to be improving and expanding.
