Located on Florida’s Gulf Coast in St. Petersburg, Eckerd College is a small liberal arts college that prepares students to be “well-rounded, educated people for the ‘real world’, rather than for just one job.” Indeed, 40 percent of all students will go on to pursue advanced degrees, and the school’s “academics are top notch and continue to impress,” particularly the constantly expanding, “hands on” science department, which “really flourishes.” Also of note is the study abroad program, of which many students take advantage.
Eckerd is “all about having small class sizes in order to maximize learning and personal connections to professors.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
