WHAT I LIKED

Florida Polytechnic University is a great school that focuses on more technical-related subjects instead of other subjects that do not correlate with my major. The smaller classroom spaces allow a better learning experience and a deeper relationship between the professor and the students.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Florida Polytechnic University needs to have better availability of required courses in any semester instead of being seasonal courses. This makes it difficult for those who want to graduate at an earlier rate.

WHAT I LIKED

There is a high number of students who are very kind and hardworking amongst the crowd of people. The people who attend this school are very passionate about their interests and STEM.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

As a recently established and small school, there are not many options on campus. Food is limited in choice and often not very good. Teachers are easily accessible for students to communicate with, however, due to the number of teachers at the small school, there is a chance that a professor for a class isn't very helpful.
