Florida College’s class of 2015 was the largest four-year class in its history, boasting 79 bachelor’s degree graduates, up from last year’s 66 graduates.

Florida College has been actively developing four-year programs since 2001 and currently offers 17 different options across eight disciplines. The most popular choice is the business administration program, which also offers an emphasis in either sports management or management information systems. This year, 29 students graduated from Florida College with a Bachelor of Science in business administration.

While growing programs and record graduating class sizes may be exciting, Florida College is not about size at all. Students at Florida College are encouraged grow academically and spiritually in a wholesome environment, regardless of class size.

Lauren Tharp graduated with the class of 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in history and expressed her appreciation for her time spent at Florida College.

“Florida College helped me grow in every way,” Tharp said. “I was able to get a challenging education in an encouraging environment and make deep, long-lasting connections with other people.”

Like Tharp, Florida College alumni continue to appreciate and support their alma mater in various ways from all across the nation.
