4 College Senior

Majors: My program seems excellent. It's very professional and has great academic standards. I plan to later go on to grad school in order to get a good job in Psychology.

Majors: Nothing too difficult or hard. If you have a good GPA you'll get in. Psychology isn't one of the school's most difficult majors.

Campus Strictness: They seem to be strict on some things but not others. Academic violations are pretty serious here, whereas one of the people on my hall once was smoking pot pretty consistently and to my knowledge never got caught even though they were reported. There are also lots of parties in the Greek houses of course.

Off-Campus Dining: There's so many restaurants around campus. Several Asian/oriental places, Jimmy John's, pizza places, etc. There's always somewhere to eat if you're hungry, and always something you'll like. Personally I love Panda Express and Genghis Grill.

Computers: Strozier gets very packed very quickly. It's probably most feasible to bring your own laptop to work wherever you want.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: It can get a little nuts!

Health & Safety: One of the many good things that FSU exceeds in. By the way, its free movies at the SLC not the "SLB"

Campus Housing: Learn how to live in community and manage space

3 College Junior

Weather: I love Tallahassee because it gives you all four seasons without the snow. It does tend to rain a lot which affects main areas of our campus such as Landis Green and the Union. But it's always fun to through on your anorak and rain boots.

4 College Junior

Majors: If I could do it all over again I probably would. Just because I came in as a freshman and your advisors tell you that "no one knows what they want to be as a freshman" and although that is a very common case, I wish I was pushed to do more research, the amount that I do now as an incoming senior, so that I could have been on the right path for a longer period of time. But although it may have taken me longer than I would have wished to figure out what I want to do, taking some of the "wrong" classes taught me a lot. It also let me meet and work with a lot of people I might have never been able to work with and it made me some great connections. I am not too worried about finding a job in my field of finance because I know that I am well prepared from my classes and that FSU has allowed me to make so many great connections and has allowed me to be a part of things such as the Career Fair, opening my eyes to the things that I want and how to get there.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am a part of the College of Business and there is no application process, it's a very chill process. You just do well in the prerequisite courses and maintain a GPA of a 2.7 and your in.

5 College Junior

Academics: Florida State University has such a diverse amount of majors that students can study along side with amazing professors teaching the classes. They keep the registration process simple, allowing you to use course codes to search a class ahead of time and keep them in a shopping kart, then when it is your window to register you can go to your shopping kart and register for the classes you have already found. Coming in as a freshman getting use to college can be pretty tough but FSU allows study groups within your living halls/dorms to make the transition smooth. There are also many libraries on campus, the most famous one being Strozier, it has six floors including a basement and annexes. It provides computers, wifi, quiet floors, 24 hours, a starbucks, etc. Then there are other smaller libraries such as the music library and Dirac.

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.
