The South boasts some of the country’s most beautiful campuses. And Stetson University is no exception. Located in DeLand, Florida, would you expect anything less?
Stetson is a small, private university, but can claim some very distinguished alumni such as Ted Cassidy (better known as Lurch), Charles E. Merrill (founder of Merrill Lynch), and Adrian Rogers. Established in 1883, Stetson was Florida’s first university, and has gone on to receive accolades through the years from Washington Monthly, Parade Magazine, and U.S. News and World Report. And yes, for all you hat lovers out there, Stetson’s name hails from John B. Stetson, manufacturer of the famous cowboy hat, and benefactor to the university who served as founding trustee.
