An Eckerd College experience is not about teaching students a rigid set of facts. As one of 40 schools featured in the book Colleges That Change Lives and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Eckerd makes it clear that its first priority is to teach students how to learn.

Eckerd, a private college of liberal arts and sciences on Florida's Gulf Coast, invites students to ThinkOutside. At our 188-acre waterfront campus and at points around the globe, we venture together in the Eckerd experience to think outside the conventional questions, methods and solutions, seeking to build a better world.

The best education is one that prepares you for the how, as well as the what, an education that teaches you to ThinkOutside.
