How about some business and physics to go with that #music? Rodriguez brothers pursue significance at #StetsonU. #MondayMotivation  
When any of the three Rodriguez brothers starts off a morning with a couple of songs in the shower, the go-to lyrics aren’t those of a current radio hit.Instead, the notes they belt out move to the rhythms of Mozart’s “Il Mio Tesoro” and “Nessun Dorma” from the opera “Turandot.”The Miami-raised brothers — Brian, 23; Manny, 21; and Michael, 19 — have shared stage after stage and spotlight after spotlight, starring in a spectrum of performances fro...

How a dean, a donor, a scientist and an environmentalist came together to give a #water institute life.
by Bill Noblitt. Looking out over the Atlantic Ocean from New Smyrna Beach, you can almost feel exotic Africa, the birthplace of hurricanes, just over the horizon. The sea's vast scale dwarfs you. It's like looking into the clear night sky filled with the bewildering Milky Way.

During my time at Stetson University, I was a highly effective and successful music student up to the point of struggling with a hereditary illness which extended my time at the university and complicated my coursework. At this time, the friendly faces faded and an institution touting tolerance no longer saw my value as a member of this community when I no longer worked effectively. This certainly does not speak of all faculty, staff, or students I had the pleasure of encountering during my time at Stetson, but, sadly, it does speak for the majority, especially in the School of Music. The School of Music is filled with negative attitudes, false friendliness, and self-centeredness. I heard professors use streams of profanity behind their students' backs when a performance did not meet their standards, students and faculty mercilessly gossiping about one another, and many lies told for self-gain between professors and students. As I realized this, I took a step back from the School of Music (I was a Music Education & Vocal Performance double major) and changed majors. This change of pace also accommodated the needs I had in light of the illness I was managing. My most delightful time at Stetson University was during classes I took which were outside of the music school altogether. Dr. Patrick Coggins, Dr. Christopher Colwell, Dr. David Stock, and Dr. Katya Kudryavtseva (to name a few) were passionate and dedicated educators which sweetened my experiences and made them more bearable. I look back on these courses with great fondness! The university's management of paperwork is also lacking. There is great need for improvement in these areas; truly bureaucracy hampers instead of helps at Stetson. My concern important paperwork would be mishandled or lost grew to the point where I would video-document when I had handed something in. To this day, with my diploma in hand, I am struggling to receive a transcript order from the university which was lost, although I have proof of purchase through my bank statement. This is one of many, many instances like it I and fellow students have experienced. Stetson is not for everyone. If I could have a "do over", I certainly would have attended another institution and would have chosen a different major. Parents and students considering Stetson, I would leave you with this admonishment: when you do well for Stetson, Stetson does well for you.

All of the positive reviewers are telling you to ignore us "outliers" for some reason. I also "actually went to this school (and graduated)," and it was the worst experience of my life. DeLand is a horrible college town. There really is nothing to do. They feed us the same food you would get at a prison (I'm not kidding). The advisors and staff were very unhelpful. The staff in the student aid and student accounts department are THE WORST people imaginable. Don't make the same mistake that so many of us did. The biggest lesson I learned is that a college degree is worthless today. Stetson is an incredibly expensive school. You should not go $100+k into debt for your bachelor's degree. Go to the cheapest college you can for your undergraduate degree. Then, use the massive amount of money you saved and get a masters from a more well known public university.

I wanted to do my exchange year in this school, but after reading all the negative reviews, I changed my mind to go to UF. I've never seen so many bad reviews trashing one college.

Wow.... I can't even describe this dump. I went here for an entire year before realizing that all the people here were a bunch of scam artists. My journey began with Stetson when they emailed me all freaking summer and senior year. I believe I got 20 emails in 2 months. On top of that my college advisors kept on pushing it and they eventually suckered me into going there. They probably got some type of kickback because I don't know who would advertise this place for free. Save yourself some of your young life and don't go here...

This is a beautiful university situated in idyllic corner of Deland, Florida. I recently went there to take a tour for my daughter as a prospective student. It is an older university with beautiful architecture. It has an air of intimacy, and a very welcoming atmosphere. My daughter loved it. I would have loved to have attended this institution.

Loved it. It's rare to have a full professor teaching a Freshman level course and that happens often at Stetson. By my Junior year, it's me and a small group of 12 people sitting around discussing history or literature with the professor. Great experience.

Don't listen to the other reviews, I actually go to school here. I went through the entire admission process and it honestly was not nearly as bad as some of the outliers below describe it. Some times there was some trouble getting everything set and done, but there was always a helpful person from the stetson end pushing me in the right direction. This school is academically great, we have the best teachers and a low student to teacher ratio. In my Bio 101 class we had 26 students compared to the 100 you would get at UCF or any other major public school. This meant that the teacher gave us her office hours and you could literally go at any time during those hours and seek help. She offered this three times a week. We also have quite the social life on campus. There are plenty of academic honor societies to help you along the way through your career path. The advisors are also great in the sense of helping you get to where you need to graduate with your degree and job opportunities. For example, I am pre-med and in the pre-med honor society AED(Alpha Epsilon Delta). They have helped me with classes, brought many doctors and dentists to talk about their practices and med school experiences, and they have definitely helped with shadowing opportunities. However, there is one place that stetson is lacking, the food. The cafeteria is buffet style, all you can eat , but its not the highest of quality. So please come here if you pick a college because of academics and not food.

It's hard to fit everything wrong with this school in less than 500,000,000 words, so I'll summarize... Look up "predatory college" on google. That's what I would equate Stetson to. It's beautiful on the outside, but once you're in they nickel and dime you to death. The education is no better than what you would get from a community college. Their course planning system is the biggest nightmare. If you go to stetson, prepare to take many classes that you didn't need to $$$. The new Feuhrer...I mean president, Wendy Libby, is the bane of teachers and students. There are actually teacher/student groups actively trying to get rid of her. Not a single person I know who went to stetson is happy they chose the school.
