Campus Life

Students enrolled at Florida Poly are exposed to the most advanced technology, work to solve real-world challenges and collaborate with faculty members and industry partners on applied research. Florida Poly’s industry-inspired curriculum and hands-on approach to STEM education – both in and outside the classroom – give graduates a competitive edge when they enter the workforce.

Florida Poly provides transfer students a variety of services to make the transition to their new campus as smooth as possible. Career services, student life staff and admissions counselors are all available to help transfer students get quickly acclimated to the Florida Poly campus and academic experience. Our advanced technology and cloud-based systems, including the all-digital library and the Florida Poly Pulse, make staying connected easy, whether you’re on or off campus.

Outside of the classroom, students have the opportunity to explore all that Lakeland and the I-4 corridor have to offer. In Lakeland, start with biking along Lake Hollingsworth or even catching a movie at the Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre. In the heart of downtown, visitors can find specialty shops, restaurants, pubs and museums.

Just a 45-minute drive in either direction, Tampa and Orlando offer big-city entertainment and attractions. To the west, Tampa is known for its major league sports, concerts and theatre venues, urban waterfront culture, Busch Gardens and the annual Gasparilla pirate parade each January. In the opposite direction, Orlando is home to world-class entertainment and theme parks, including Disney World, Islands of Adventures and Universal Studios. The Blue Man Group and many other theatre productions perform regularly.
