I agree with everyone about the housing situation. I'm married and put a deposit in on one of the Stetson owned houses, but it is outdated and small. I've heard the Gulfview condos (I think that is the name?) across from Stetson are nice and modern, but a few people at Stetson said they are pretty busy, noisey at times.

I've been on the Stetson Connect Portal and it doesn't get updated too often, but there are some informative links.

In need of roommates!!!

I found a quiet, gated, town house that I would need 1, if not 2, roommates to justify the cost.

Please please please PM me if you are looking. I was originally only looking for guy roommates but have since thrown that out. lol

Is yours right in the heart of Gulfport? I wonder if it's the same as the one I found. It was a 3br, but I don't have two people to room with so I am still waiting around.

Hello everyone! Just received my acceptance email this morning. I was wondering how long it usually took for the admissions packet to arrive via postal mail, and if scholarship information was included in that packet?

How'd you find it? I can never find anything in the area. I'm contemplating just living alone now, but I'd love to have a 1L roommate who knows what I'm going through and can discuss classwork with me.

I know scholly info arrives separately a couple weeks later via Fedex, but I doubt I'm getting anything at this point since my deposit is due on Tuesday. I will probably send in the deposit anyway on Friday night if I haven't heard from any of my WL or pending schools.

I was accepted as a full-time student. I'm definitely going to be attending Stetson in the fall, with or without a scholarship. Do you have to pay your seat deposit to get scholarship offers/information? I'm super excited to attend Stetson this fall!

I thought I saw something in the admissions package that said you'd receive the financial aid information after the deposit was paid. I don't think that applies if you'll be offered a scholarship though.

Jehu,

They award them all through the cycle so it is probably not too late. Really depends as far as numbers (think they figure in a lot of softs as well URM, work experience, etc) usually above the top 75% may get you something just call admissions they are pretty good about that stuff.

I was told it was numbers, specifically. I believe above the top 75% is accurate, though.

Yea they look at numbers a lot usually top 75% is (at least from my experience) where you will be likely to get money.

Also, one thing to look at for places to live would be to contact a real estate broker in the area (they have a lot that do rentals in the area) as a couple friends found some really nice places that were reasonable because the owners were never able to sell them but are now renting them. Also, depending on your price range you can usually find apartments right across the street from Stetson at Golfview they will run you 7-8 hundred for a 1 bedroom and 12-13 for a 2 bedroom.

Hi everyone. I just drove down from Michigan to check out the area and campus. I have a meeting with admissions tomorrow for a tour. If anybody has any questions, I'd be happy to get them addressed for you! I will also be checking out housing in the area.

+1! I'm trying to find a newer apartment in the area. I was just up there a couple of weeks ago, but didn't have enough time to look at many areas except for right around the school. If you see any that you would recommend, please let me know.

I'm attending this fall and having a ridiculously hard time finding a roommate. It's a lot easier to find a place to live if you have a roommate lined up so if anyone is in my situation please PM me or reply to this with your contact info.
