This school is not for low-income students, sorry. Let the upper middle class kids have this school. The academics are okay; The STEM professors are so strict and extra for no reason. On-camous housing is bad; it's expensive yet ugly at sovi and worn down and ugly at north lake. Unless you are part of housing program, don't live on campus. Housing, cashiers, bursars, and registrars office are incompetent and not useful in any situation. This is not a party school. This school will be great for nursing majors and majors that revolve around the environment.

FGCU has a beautiful campus and atmosphere. The students are very easy to get along with and teachers are willing to help students during their office hours and make time for them to help them however they can. I definitely recommend this school.
