Go Beyond Words

Page 1


THE STETSON EXPERIENCE GOES BEYOND WORDS If you read one thing, read this. Most colleges tell you how great they are with a bunch of words. We go beyond them because we know how great you are (and will be). We empower you with a Stetson experience that elevates what’s inside — and we back you up with The Stetson Promise. This is so much more than getting a degree. This is elevating you to go beyond graduation and make a difference. When that connects, you connect in ways that go far beyond academics and classrooms, and just like you, far beyond what words can capture.

Stetson is a rare place that offers countless opportunities. D-I Athletics, student-led Club Sports like Equestrian... We could go on and on, or you could see for yourself virtually.
