3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is average. Its great if that's what you're into.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many interesting and unique restaurants. There are many options and varieties to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food that I've had in the Dining Halls was varied and delicious.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: As long as you apply for the FASFA early, you should have no issues. I applied early enough that not only did I receive a Pell Grant, but FSU also gave me a grant.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are always parties going on, and there is always something to do.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have been blessed enough to never experience any safety or security issues on campus. However, i do know that it still does exist and i am always all for increasing safety and security for the students at FSU. I want to always feel safe when walking and some extra lighting at night would not be a terrible thing. I would also like for there to be security in the parking garages once it gets dark because after leaving the library late at night, walking alone is scary. Other then that, i feel safe at campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love being a student at Florida State University. Being a part of this school opens up so many opportunities for students and teaches you the true meaning of a family and tradition. I would recommend going to Florida State to all high school students who are unsure of where they will fit in.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Entering a major program at FSU is extremely challenging due to the amount of students competing against each other but they do their best to help the students and give them the best opportunities possible.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Being able to live off campus is an awesome luxury once you find a place that works for you and your hobbies. Different complexes have different layouts and opportunities considering space, location, and proximity to certain places on campus. Campus is so large that you are always going to be far from somewhere but it is always walking distance.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Once you leave campus there are tons of restaurants to choose from. The hardest part is making the decision of where you and your friends want to go. There are certain restaurants that stay open late because of the amount of studying being done late at night on campus and for those who choose to go out.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is sometimes difficult to get information out of the federal aid or financial aid services. Especially when you are a student who could use a little extra money to help get through school, it becomes increasingly stressful.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The only issue i have ever had at Florida State is that there are so many students, so occasionally things get a little crammed and busy. However, considering that there are so many of us they do an awesome job accommodating.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am a cheerleader for Florida State University and i have so much pride for what we do as a program and as a school. The way they treat us is amazing. They truly do put a lot of time, money, and effort into their athletes and intramural sports.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I did not choose to do a sorority so far while at Florida State however, i have heard and learned such great things. I really enjoy being around the sorority and fraternity events and they do amazing things for the school and community.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are not huge, but that is the expectation of a dorm. I have decided to live right on the outskirts of campus and I don't have any complaints.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I have enjoyed every class that i have taken at Florida State. Most of my professors have been extremely helpful and have taught me many things i will carry with me throughout the rest of my collegiate years and for life.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: If you think of any class that you would like to take, there is a class like it. There is even a class about Harry Potter!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The meals at Florida State University are not terrible. They are not fine dining of course, but there is not much to complain about. I have learned where to go and what the best spots are when i am hungry.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic facilities are the best I've been in.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Sorority girls all dress alike.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

You would be hard-pressed to find a graduate of Florida State University who doesn’t have fond memories of the years they spent on campus. Current students will also agree that they are happy with their decision to attend school here. There is something for everyone, from athletics to academia, and you would have a hard time finding a more comfortable setting than Tallahassee. It has so much to offer, from exciting nightlife to beautiful weather.

Although it bears the reputation of a party school, FSU also has a growing reputation for turning out some of the best and brightest graduates in the entire nation. The school is now turning its focus on research, which should appeal to those interested in science and mathematics. But never fear, FSU also emphasizes the arts through their award-winning film and theater departments. From math and science, to the arts, FSU offers a vast array of eclectic degrees, which will be nothing but helpful later in your life. Choosing which college to attend is not an easy decision, but if you’re looking for the perfect combination of a good education and a good time, you can’t do much better than Florida State University.
