3 College Junior

Academics: My specific major is actually quite challenging because I am an Exercise Science major. Often the workload is very large, and because a majority of my major consists of science classes, it's usually only possible to take 2 science courses per semester. However, the advisors for my program are excellent and always help me out and there's many wonderful opportunities for people of my major to get involved on campus.

4 College Junior

Academics: For special study options, there is a great area called ACE Tutoring Zone and there's someone their to help you study just about any subject and they will tutor you for free. Also, in our main library there's another tutoring center with someone for just about any subject at any time. The study rooms in the libraries are also amazing! They offer white boards to practice working out problems and they even offer a tv that can be hooked up to your computer for better reading and studying!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes I have been in are mostly very large 200+ students, however the professors do take the time to get to know student that go to their office hours frequently and they do try to help students out as best as possible.. The overall quality of the professors and the courses offered are very good.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a career center here at Florida State University that helps to set you up with opportunities to apply for various jobs.. People from the career center often speak at classes and advertise really well so that students know about any opportunities that are available to them.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I absolutely love the major I am in. The courses required are exactly what I need for graduate school. So far, the classes are not too hard. But, I am not far in the major.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The registration process is easy once you learn it. Do not be afraid if you do not get the class you want. You have time during drop/add week to get your class. Professors are average. Some are great, some suck. If they suck, I learned to get help from friends or tutors.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a lot of students from south Florida on campus, so there is a high Hispanic background. While the majority of students are from in-state, I have met students from California, New York, and New Jersey. There is a diversity of religions on campus, so more outspoken than others.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: House-hunting starts in October! Apartments are available towards the end of the year, but you may not get a place you prefer. The apartments closest to campus go first. Those are usually more expensive, but very nice. Most apartment complexes seem to be state of the art, including gyms, study centers, and more.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You will never go hungry in Tallahassee! The prices are not bad. If I think a meal is a little pricy, then I take part of it home as leftovers. There are a variety of options to eat at, from Cuban to Japanese.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are a good variety of clubs and bars around campus. Some are walkable, and some are a short drive away. They are cheap in admission and drinks compared to bars and clubs in big cities.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a college police station on the edge of campus that makes rounds at night to check for safety. I have walked alone at night many times, but I have only done it because I have to. I always prefer walking with a friend.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is enough in Tallahassee to keep people entertained, but I do not think I could live there after college. There are movie theaters, malls, parks, good restaurants, and more. But I can't take part in these attractions the same way I can when I am back home because I don't have the time or money during the school year.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is a lot of diversity at the school. There are jocks, nerds, musicians, etc. But I enjoy it greatly because I learn new cultures and styles through them. If there are people I don't like, I ignore them because the campus is big. So, there is a small chance that I will see them.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have Bright Futures, which is easily deposited to my college banking account. I do not have any scholarships through the actual college.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The college is absolutely breath-taking. I will never get tired of walking around the beautiful campus, especially on a sunny day when everyone is outside walking around. The libraries are great study areas, but get very hectic during finals week. There are countless activities to do around campus. Students can see a movie at the theater, play video games, go bowling, enjoy music at our club, and more. Homecoming is a great tradition that people get excited for.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining halls are just average. I used it only for a semester. During that time, the food got boring quickly. Not much variety. However, I really like the restaurants on campus, such as Chili's, Chik-fil-A, Freshens, Pollo Tropical, Starbucks, and more. I don't use the meal plan. But when I decide to eat on campus, I am usually satisfied.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I absolutely love football season! Its the best time of the year, and I cannot wait for it to begin again. I especially appreciate the fact that all sports games are free to students! Also, I love participating in the intramurals. They are a lot of fun, and a great way to exercise.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many different kinds of places that are available at FSU. There are really inexpensive decent places or places that are much nicer for a little more money. It is very easy to find something that will fit your budget and needs.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Like with anywhere you eat at 7 days a week for two semesters (or more) you will get tired of the food. Often times you'll try to be healthy by just getting a salad but you can only eat so many leaves.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I am out of state and get a decent amount in scholarships. I do wish I had gotten more but for such a big school I believe I got a good amount of financial aid.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: The nightlife is one of the best things about FSU. Every night of the week there is something going on so you're never missing out but there's also always something to do.

5 College Junior

Majors: My major is Elementary Education. I only have 30 students in each of my classes. I get hands on, personal experience where I get to go work in a school and actually test the material I am being taught. It is a very intensive major, however I feel that I am truly becoming prepared for a real job in the field of education.

College Junior

Majors: I have not had an internship at FSu yet. Many people go abroad for their internships.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There's a great social life at FSU. Students are extremely fit and are very into self image for the most part. Social life and going out is huge.

5 College Junior

Athletics: We have some of the most state of the art equipment that is available for student use for free. Almost everyone participates in intramurals, whether they are in Greek life or not. Our varsity sports are literally some of the best in the country.

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.
