If you are looking for an intensive week of softball in a great spring location, Cocoa Beach Softball Spring Training on Florida’s beautiful Space Coast is the perfect choice for your next spring trip! At the end of a hard day of training and play teams can relax and unwind by visiting the Space Coast’s finest site. The Chain of Lakes Softball Complex is located on Florida’s Space Coast just a short drive from beautiful Cocoa Beach. The Space Coast is a vacationer’s paradise.

During off time our teams visit world famous attractions such as the Cocoa Beach Pier, Kennedy Space Center and Ron Jon Surf Shop. The Space Coast is also the spring training home of Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals so teams can take in a game just minutes from our center at Space Coast Stadium.
Benjamin Franklin's university, Penn, is frequently confused with Penn State, but the similarities are few. The campus sits along the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, and Center City is just a short walk away. The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School is arguably the strongest school of business in the country, and numerous other undergraduate and graduate programs place high in national rankings. With close to 12,000 undergraduates and graduate students, Penn is one of the larger Ivy League schools.
Let’s face it, there are many reasons to live in Florida and to go to college in Florida. Being near the beach, year-round warm weather and access to numerous outdoor activities are the perfect complement to classes, friends and nightlife. Florida’s climate is warm, subtropical and has an average yearround temperature of 82°F. Aside from classes and studying, student life may include sports or participation in Greek or service clubs. There’s so much more to a Florida life than what’s on campus.

Niche User: I got accepted for Astronomy/Astrophysics at the Daytona Beach Campus. I’m thrilled about this. I was emailing the Senior Assistant Director of Admissions Megan Spurrel, and I 90% do not recommend contacting her with questions and you’re better off emailing someone else on the admissions team. I was asking about the Worldwide program and wondering if I would be able to transfer to it if my major was offered by the program and whatnot (it’s not.) Never did I say I definitely wanted to transfer, and I never asked her to cancel my application but she took it upon herself to do so (I emailed her back before she did, thankfully.) I find it ridiculous that she would assume that was okay when I was ONLY INQUIRING. I’ve read through the emails, there is no way she should’ve gotten confused and believed it was alright to cancel my application. Besides her, I’ve heard nothing but good things about the institution. I hope that everything works out so I can attend!
