Student Opinions About Studying in Daytona Beach

“The locals are down-to-earth, in general the climate is amazing. To my surprise, there are plenty of districts you can go to in the centre if you want a break from all the students and tourists, so you can focus on your studies without being distracted by nightlife culture.”

“There are so many outdoor and indoor activities to do that you might not even have time to do them all! The city is vibrant, and people are kind around here. I’ve never felt so at home away from home. The beachside gets busy, and I personally like that because you end up talking to more people.”
