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 and tasty.

It is clear why Florida Southern College was ranked by The Princeton Review as the nation’s “Most Beautiful Campus." We took the self-guided tour by map to see the world’s largest, single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright structures. The campus features historic architecture from 1922 as well as contemporary designs by world-renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern (dean of the Yale School of Architecture). Make sure to walk the esplanade and take notice of the design of the floral planters within the stairs. Their depth and design is fascinating. The way Wright works with color, light, and geometric patterns are truly a sight to behold. Four star rating is only because several of Wright's works desperately need renovation.

The food was excellent. As a 70 year old man, it was refreshing to be around so many young people who treated us with kindness and respect.

Wow! I am just so very impressed with this campus. I knew FLW had designed a couple of the buildings there, but had no idea of the number of buildings he’d designed or the fact that he essentially designed the layout of the entire campus. Magnificent and not to be missed if you are a fan of architecture! I did the two hour tour and it was fantastic. Brian was very knowledgeable and friendly.
