A Significant Education for a Significant Life
Dare To Be Significant
It takes courage for significance. To fly in the face of average and say: "I will not settle for mediocrity." At Stetson, we dare our students to rise to their potential and avoid the path of least resistance. We dare them to find their passion, to live to the best of their ability and to never look back and wonder what could have been. We dare them to make the world a better place and enrich the lives of others. Every day at Stetson, we dare our students to push beyond success and pursue significance - and the amazing thing is, they do.
