About Our Culture
Florida Poly students come from all types of backgrounds, but there are certain characteristics they share. Our students stay up late and wake up early because they’re passionate about a project. They include everyone. They talk about the thrill of overcoming a challenge. When you share your vision of the future or something you want to create, you get a knowing smile and encouragement. This is what Florida Poly is about.
Life on Campus
Looking for a place to belong? Come to Florida Poly. Our campus culture is built around inclusivity. Your niche might be found in our more than 20 clubs dedicated to special interests ranging from submarines to Japanese culture. Or, get involved in our two professional associations for engineering competitions and resume-building opportunities.
Students also enjoy the opportunity to start traditions, organizations and annual events. In just the first few years they voted on our mascot, formed the Student Government Association, founded intramural sports teams and debuted new events like a hackathon and Poly Con. What will you start?
No matter your interests, this is a place where your big ideas are welcome. It takes a special kind of student to attend a STEM university and you’ll find most of your friends share your entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to overcoming challenges. This is a place to form deep bonds that will last a lifetime of innovation, exploration and learning.
