The campus of Florida Southern College is like visiting a living museum of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. What imaginative buildings are on the campus! There's also a Frank Lloyd Wright house that you can visit there.

I really believe this place might be one of the happiest places I’ve ever been to. Personal attention and true concern for the prospective students. In addition just a gorgeous campus to visit :)

Beautiful campus! Haven’t been inside too many of the buildings, but the lacrosse field is great, we attended all the home games last season and plan on doing so again next season. Coach Ward is a great guy.

Take the tour of the buildings. Learn about the architecture that is Frank Lloyd Wright. The tour is well worth the time and the money.

We had a 1 hour tour, should have done the 2 hour tour! Very informative but we wanted more! Our docent was well informed and friendly. I knew nothing about Frank Lloyd Wright or his concepts, and learned a lot.

We had a chance to walk through the campus to look at the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. We learned that this is the largest collection of buildings designed by him. We were able to get into the Chapel, which was beautiful, with a pipe organ...More

Florida Southern is a great local school. Tuition is very expensive since it is a private school, however they do offer a lot of scholarship opportunities for students.

The campus is very pretty with older architecture and new modern architecture. The nursing building was amazing. The staff was freindly, knowledgeable, made you feel like it was one big family on campus. A lot of pride.

Went to dinner here because we saw an advertisement that made it look like a nice restaurant...disappointed here because it was date night. It is the typical college foodcourt with food stations - pay one price for everything there. Great selection and food was fresh...More

Yes, the gift shop/visitor center is your first stop. You can ‘self guide’ or they have guided tours at set times. Suggest calling them. Number and other info from their web page is: Sharp Family Tourism and Education Center... More

You do have to walk to see the buildings. They are fairly close together but there are steps to navigate.
