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.

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.
