Deland Florida

Stetson University is a beautiful campus in the heart of Central Florida. There are many historical buildings that have been preserved, and are being used as classrooms, and student housing.

Stetson University was founded in 1883. The 175-acre DeLand campus is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the turn-of-the-century buildings have been modernized and updated without losing their charm.

The latest additions to the DeLand campus (2008-2009 academic year) are the following construction projects: Science Center addition to the existing Sage Hall; Mary B. McMahan Hall, an addition to the School of Music's Presser Hall; the Homer and Dolly Hand Art Center; and the Marshall and Vera Lea Rinker Environmental Learning Center. Within the past two years, a softball training facility was added at Patricia Wilson Field; five fraternity houses were renovated; and six residential halls were built, five of which feature apartment-style living.

What a lovely place to spend an afternoon and soak in a little bit of the past.
