Greek Life: I was part of Greek life at the University of Florida (before I transferred) and it was great but I was too immature to handle school and Greek life, thus I partied too much. However, that was my own fault. I think Greek life is a great thing and provides incoming freshman with a wonderful opportunity to meet a myriad of students.

Majors: The only reason why I didn't choose it's great is because I think that I could succeed at broadcasting but it is too late to start.

Guys & Girls: All the girls dress the same and look the same( out of style). The girls wear gym clothes to class, Jean shorts and sandals to the club/bar and dresses to football games.

Off-Campus Dining: There are not many options for dinning.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics is very good at the university due to the professors, study options and curriculum. On the other hand, registration is a hassle.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is only about 15% of the campus, however they run SGA. Therefore, they run the entire school.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school is mostly filled with caucasian, republicans.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is absolutely nothing to do in this small town. The clubs and bars are awful. There are no attractions. There is no where to shop. The only nice thing to do in the his town is to go to the Rez.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Recently my father passed away and I lost half my income and the school did not want to give me any aid or grants when the year before i was given aid with 2 incomes. Their reasoning for not giving me aid was because I have Bright Futures. Bright Futures is a scholarship that I earned, not aid.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: FSU barely reports any rapes or sexual assault. They do not do anything to avoid rape, as in telling men to not rape, rather they tell girls to be protective.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The tobacco free campus is not working because students do not get a punishment for smoking on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The majority of students drink alcohol or smoke marijuana. They do not do other drugs as often.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: The notice of how many spots available on top of the garage is extremely helpful, especially the app because you can look it up before you head out to school to know where you should park.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: If there is an alert about severe thunderstorms class should not take place. It is unsafe to drive or walk around campus in those conditions.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The wireless connection is not good in many locations.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is a big Greek community. As an outsider, I'm pretty indifferent.

Health & Safety: From what I hear, it's not a very safe campus but FSU and the campus police do an amazing job providing opportunities for students to stay as safe as they can, often using technology. The rest is up to the students.

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.
