COLLEGE OF THE WEEK
THIS WEEK: ECKERD COLLEGE
Click here for Admissions Info
Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info
Acceptance Rate: 73%
DETAILS: Attending Eckerd College demands a special sort of willpower. Why? In the words of an international business major: “We are right on the water, and it is like going to college in a resort.” With free canoes, kayaks, boats, coolers, and tents always available for student use, it’s a wonder anyone finds time to study. But study they do, as administrators continue to lure capable students to Eckerd with small classes, skilled professors, and a thriving social scene. “Few schools are located right on the beach,” says a sophomore. “It’s Eckerd’s paradise-like setting that seals the deal for most prospective students.”
Autumn Term, Eckerd’s version of freshman orientation, is a three-week term before the regular fall semester that introduces new students to the academic expectations and social responsibilities of the Eckerd community. First-years also take a yearlong course called Human Experience, which focuses on topics like justice, power, freedom, and global citizenship, and all students must meet composition, foreign language, information technology, oral communication, and quantitative skills requirements. Also required are one course in each of the four academic areas—arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences—plus one course each in environmental and global perspectives. The capstone senior seminar, organized around the theme “Imagining Justice,” asks students to draw on what they’ve learned during college to find solutions to important issues. Seniors present their capstone work at a festival in the spring. All students are also expected to complete at least 40 hours of community service before graduation; service opportunities are built into reflective service-learning courses that are offered in every major.
EC Student Perspective: “Although the classes are intellectually stimulating, engaging, and challenging, there is not too much competition among the students.”
