What Guests Are Saying

"It's hard to say what was my most enjoyable event. Attending a class was enlightening, chatting with the teachers at the coffee was great, the orchestra was outstanding, CCF Dessert theater was good, gardening with Hatter Harvest was fun, etc. I could go on and on..."

"Very much enjoyed meeting with professors, going to class, and hearing Ms. Libby speak. She is obviously very proud. The students also seem to love Stetson - hearing them was very inspirational..."
