I teach in Brevard County. Our FSA results arrived yesterday. But we still do not have any truly useful data from those reports. All my students passed both reading and writing, but we will not find out which skill areas our students actually did well in and which ones they did not.

Life's Big Questions: Do they still matter? #ideas  
by Bill Noblitt. My son, a history major, phoned to ask me: “What's the theme of the next issue of Stetson Magazine?” “We decided to deal with a light topic this time,” I told him, tongue-in-cheek. “It's going to focus on What's the Meaning of Life.” “So you're putting out a magazine for ...

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.

I'm getting spam from them saying "You are part of an exclusive group of students who have caught the interest and attention of Stetson University. Your achievements are truly significant, and before you know it, the nation's top colleges will take notice. " TCC community college has been selling our email addresses to third parties or something. All my friends are getting it too, high GPA or not. It's garbage. These types of emails are pretty much "undue influence". Counselors and university emails which most students consider trustworthy are really just advertising and marketing agencies. They're exploiting the student's desire to be acknowledged and recognized. You are a target in their email campaign and what they really want is to see the return on investment increase when they hook you on the phone.

I usually never write reviews unless I have incredibly bad or great experiences with various business establishments, products, etc. Also, I thought this review may help others that were recently considering Stetson University like I had. In a nutshell, I had a horrible experience with this school’s admissions process and it baffled me because I thought their reputation was much more prestigious among those schools within my residential area. Even if I had continued the admissions process and eventually been accepted…I would’ve declined the offer and took my $15,000+ in scholarship money elsewhere as I have currently.  Read on for details….. I worked closely with a school representative for months in order to gain entry and start during this fall semester (2013). This representative gave me false hope and lied about the committee taking a ‘holistic’ approach to each item of my application although I stated plenty of times that I was solely interested in a realistic answer and approach to my application (my GMAT score wasn’t up to par with my standards although 4 out of 5 items within my application packet were great given my extended professional experience for my age, high GPA and reputable references including an institution’s President, Provost and Board of Trustee). This representative decided further to call me 1 DAY before he would leave his position at Stetson University (which was a total and complete SHOCK) with promises to give me an answer which would determine my admission’s status……I never heard from him again. Thereafter, I spent the next week and a half trying to get in contact with anyone that would be able to help me. I left various messages for individuals and received not one call back. Finally, I left one last message on the voicemail of a cell phone number that an operator at the school had given me which was apparently the cell phone number of the individual who took the position of their past employer who worked with me (the fact that they gave me a cell phone number rather than transferring me to an extension only heightened my utter disappointment with the school seeing as I wanted to ironically pursue my MBA with them and this seemed so unprofessional along with everything else at this point that they carried out dishonorably during my experience). At last, it is August 2, 2013, mere weeks before school will start, and a representative FINALLY contacted me…my guess is because the last message I left explained that if I did not receive a call back after leaving this last message I would file a professional complaint with the school due to their flaky admissions process. During this conversation, I discovered that the resigned representative omitted information about my admission’s status and offered me an unrealistic approach to gain acceptance. Furthermore, this representative offered poor customer service and a lack of resolution…all that I reported to the Dean of the Business School after ending this call. I figured I would follow up with a review and official complaint so that other potential students would not experience such an admissions process and be cautious when considering this university. Currently, I have been admitted to Texas A&M University which has offered a much MUCH better process which is complimented by a notable innovativeness that precedes what Stetson University has offered in my experience. In hopes that this will prove helpful as a difference in perspective for further insight which will enable an easier choice for prospective students.  -N-

Not worth your money! You will be better off going to a public university in FL and saving yourself a ton of money. The career placement department is a joke, and quite a few business professors could care less about you once you are done paying your bills at the school. I'm extremely dissapointed with the schools career placement and alumni relations. All these ppl care about is taking your money.

If anyone out there is thinking of attending, or knows anyone who is thinking of attending, Stetson University in Deland, FL, DON'T!!! They are by far the most disorganized, unprofessional, lying bunch of idiots I have ever dealt with. Not only did they basically forget about my daughter who was awarded a Presidential Scholarship of $124,000 by their school, they never sent half of the paperwork needed to enroll in said school, they never returned any of my repeated emails and phone calls regarding missing paperwork, they still are sending emails to my daughter requesting missing paperwork, even though we have repeatedly told them she is not attending their school, and I have just found out that the $400 deposit, that I was told by two separate people would be returned, was "forfeited" according to their bursars office and never sent! Dealing with this university has been nothing but a nightmare! Just one example is the fact that my daughter's Admissions Counselor left the university in November and my daughter was never reassigned to a new one even after I brought it to the attention of the Admissions office on at least 2 occasions.

I received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in 1978 and a J.D. degree in 1981, and I thought the place was wonderful. Of course, that was over 30 years ago. I hope the University is doing well.

My daughter is now going into her sophomore year at Stetson...It is a smaller private institution...The campus is absolutely lovely...In addition, Stetson has a wonderful teaching/professor staff and their clerical personnel are always available to assist...It took a bit of adjustment but by her second semester, she was doing just fine...The school does the best they can to integrate the kids so they make the transition with ease...I can't say enough about Stetson...Go Hatters!

Antediluvian and dysfunctional are the two words that come to mind if I were to describe Stetson. I was a graduate student in their MFT Counseling program there and attended three semesters. However much I liked the education, the administration is filled with flaws, mistakes, and a complete lack of urgency in regards to student problems. Their systems are so outdated, I don't know how they're even relevant competition in higher education. All three semesters the financial aid office and the office of finance screwed up with the "delivery" of my financial aid. I am sorry it's 2014, if schools are still sending out paper checks in the mail, something is wrong. When I attended Rollins College in 2008 and had small student loans, even then it was electronically transferred. My most recent mishap was that they had my correct mailing address, sent out my student loan on June 2, 2014. I didn't follow up until June 16 (giving them ample time since a max. 2-week is required), and came to find out my check was floating around campus for two-weeks. Why didn't someone who received it return it? Why wasn't I notified? Why did I have to hunt down the problem? So then I was told that it would be sent overnight to me, no signature required, and well missed my package because a signature was required... The people that work there have no idea what they're doing, and don't seem to really care either. They are stuck in 1950 with their procedures and technology. So exasperated with that school, I am glad I am leaving.

Tiffany, we sincerely apologize for the problems you encountered. We (social media team) have made administration aware of the situation, and we will update this thread with their reply. Update, July 2, 2014: Tiffany, it seems the problem was a combination of miscommunications and procedural misunderstandings among several parties. We have been notified that the appropriate departments have been in touch with you, and the situation has been resolved. Again, we apologize for any problems that occurred.
