I like that Francis Marion has small classroom sizes that allow students to get extra help if they need it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The majority of the professors were a good match for teaching students but some were not.



What I like about my education experience at Francis Marion University is the availability of teachers and tutors. I like this about my education experience because you literally get all the help you need. If extra help is needed from a professor you can simply stop by their office hours or make an appointment that's more suitable for your schedule and as well as the tutoring center and writing center.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

What I don't like about Francis Marion University is the food from the dining hall. Some days I have no idea what the food is, but some of it isn't as bad, as the pizza.
