Greetings from Eckerd College, located in Florida’s “Sunshine City” of St. Petersburg.

I encourage you to navigate the many layers of our website to learn more about all of the unique and innovative aspects of our community. Located on 188 acres along the Gulf of Mexico, Eckerd is a place that will inspire you to THINKOUTSIDE — as a student, you will take advantage of our extensive international experiences (we were the first college to develop the highly emulated 4-1-4 academic calendar), work and possibly conduct research one-on-one with your own faculty mentor, and maybe even come up with our next sustainability project.

But all of this can’t be understood and appreciated by navigating a website alone. Visit our campus, observe a class, have lunch with our students, and explore all that Eckerd and the Tampa Bay region have to offer.

I look forward to working with you throughout your admission process and hope to see you soon — either here on campus or in your local area
