Florida Atlantic University
Florida Atlantic University doesn’t just have brains and best value going for it, it has beauty too. Ranked one of U.S. News and World’s Best Value Colleges of 2011, this campus in the sunshine state welcomes summer all year long. In January and February, temperatures average in the 60s and 70s.
The campus is located right on Sarasota Bay so students are able to take advantage of nearly every water sport either on-campus or off. Florida Atlantic even has its own port docks for sailing and canoeing.
Just a few miles away are public beaches as well as Myakka State Park. At the State Park, students can view wildlife, like birds and alligators, as well as canoe, hike, picnic, and camp.
