I like the student-professor relationships here at Florida Tech.  Since the class sizes are fairly small, my professors know me, and this helps me widen my professional network.

Favorite Multicultural Event: International Festival

I liked the international festival because I get to learn about the amazing cultures from around the world.

What do you like about Florida Tech?

The low teacher-to-student ratio and the relationships one develops with the faculty at Florida Tech are one of the best things at Florida Tech. Also due to the small campus, one almost knows everyone here. The botanical gardens here are one of my favorite places on Florida Tech.

I like how Florida Tech engages their international students in a lot of multicultural events so we have the opportunity to have friends from all over the world and overcome homesick. I also like how Florida Tech's faculty, staff, and students are incredibly nice. And I like how I have one-on-one contact with my professors, and collaborate with them easily when I need them.

Favorite Multicultural Event: ISSO International Coffee Hours and International Festival

What do you like about Florida Tech?

There are several things that I love about Florida Tech. First of all, it is a well-known international university where you will find diverse cultures from countries that you have never heard about it. Second, it is a small university, which allows you to meet more people and most important classes are smaller. And lastly, Florida Tech’s location is perfect for all the incoming students because it is close to Orlando, Miami, Tampa, and many other places where you can have fun. If you have chosen Florida Tech for pursuing you dream, you are one step closer!!

Favorite Multicultural Event:  International Festival

What do you like about Florida Tech?

Its small size which allows you to get to know your professors on a personal level. Also, the ease with which one can get involved on campus because of the large amount of organizations that exist.

Joining Greek Life was the best decision that I have made in college and I highly recommend it.
