Our 175-acre DeLand campus is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and our turn-of-the-century buildings have been modernized and updated without losing their charm. "A bright mind is never happy on the sidelines. A bright mind is meant to be wide open to all the intellectual adventures it encounters. That conviction is the foundation of the academic prestige Stetson University has enjoyed since 1883."

Dinner: We will have a catered meal where the professors for the week are invited to stop in and have dinner with you and say a few words. It's a time to mingle and get to know everyone that you will be with for the following week This is a catered event... (if you have any dietary needs, please let us know on your health forms.)
