The college campus is famous for its collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture — the largest on-site collection.

The Lakeland Center hosts a variety of events and live performances, including music concerts by acts like Led Zeppelin, Frankie Avalon, and BJ Thomas. The Florida Air Museum will inspire plane enthusiasts. The area’s many lakes offer an abundance of walking, running, biking, and blading opportunities. Lake Mirror Park has an amphitheater, pedestrian walkways, a historic promenade, and the stunning Hollis Garden. Lake Hollingsworth covers 350 acres and is popular for boating.
