Stetson University, DeLand, Orlando FL

Description

Stetson University, founded in 1883, has a beautiful campus with red brick buildings, oak trees, and palm gardens. Inscribed on one of the buildings are the words "Education is power," and this struck me as I strolled along. To be privileged to have an education at a small university where professors care and know about you is to be given a powerful boost in life. Although Stetson University is expensive to attend, the average merit scholarship awarded is $20,000 per year. Also, 30% of the students come from less-wealthy families. The students seem very happy at Stetson. Some residence halls allow pets. Some residence halls are in historic buildings with gorgeous lounges downstairs. The DeLand campus is located along a delightful tree-lined road, Woodland Blvd, that leads into the historic main strip of DeLand town, with cute cafes.
One of the good things about going to Stetson University is you could swim at Blue Spring State Park on weekends! Paradise!
