The College has been recognized in the independent annual guide since 2009.

"Our revolutionary engaged learning process, led by our faculty, differentiates Florida Southern College from everyone else," said Dr. Anne B. Kerr, FSC's president. "We provide the educational experience to our students, then we help place them in the workforce in a consequential manner."

Written by Edward B. Fiske, the former education editor for The New York Times, and the Guide's managing editor, Michelle Lecuyer, the Fiske Guide to Colleges provides college-bound students and their parents with detailed stories and up-to-date enrollment information, including quotes and tips that capture the personality of each school. Questionnaire responses from college administrators and students offer unique insights on a wide range of topics, from academics to social activities, housing, dining, financial aid, and the overall campus environment.

The new edition of the Fiske Guide highlights Florida Southern's focus on a hands-on pedagogy. "Florida Southern's core curriculum is based on student learning outcomes in eight areas, ranging from critical and creative thinking to effective communication to personal and social responsibility."

Additionally, the Guide points out that, "Forty-two percent of students carry out undergraduate research projects during their time at FSC, usually as part of a senior capstone course."

In its updated profile, the 2023 guide focuses on Florida Southern College's ability to help graduating seniors earn jobs in their chosen fields. "The Career Center is the best resource on campus," said one student. "They offer résumé building, [mock] interviews, and many more things to help you with your future career."

The Fiske Guide to Colleges 2023 is available in print as a trade paperback and in digital form through the iTunes app or Fiske Interactive Online.
