3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are a lot of options to get to school. The buses run all day. Try not to drive to campus because parking is horrible

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports Are Awesome – FSU has a bunch of really popular and successful sports. Football is the most popular sport. I would recommend going to games.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Live Off Campus – Dorms are good to meet people but I would recommend living off campus after your first year. There are a bunch of good places to live. I would recommend west 10.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking is free for FSU students as long as you have a tag. But it is very hard to find parking spots during the school week. If you park in the wrong spot you will get a ticket or towed.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms Are Old – Living on campus is a great way to meet people, especially if you are a freshman. Most of the dorms are big and there is plenty of room. But most of them are old so it can mess up your allergies .

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The Stadium Is Awesome – The football stadium is the biggest building on campus and everyone who sees it is in awe of how massive it is in size. The rest of the buildings are cool as well. All the buildings are big and are made of brick which gives the campus a awesome feel.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The Social Scene – FSU is a huge school and there is many opportunities to get involved in all types of forums. Greek Life is very popular here, and there are organizations catering to almost every interest. There is always something going on here and always a party to go to.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: FSU is a huge university and there are many,many various ethnic and cultural groups. Everyone on campus is highly tolerant of each other. There are many organizations on campus focusing on acceptance and creating a unified campus and learning community.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Libraries Are Great. There is numerous libraries on campus and a wide varieties of resources in each. They are open very late and have Starbucks within them. There is also plenty of assistance available if needed. Free tutoring and advising is also available in libraries. Students can also check out textbook, laptops, and Smart rooms for free.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife in Tallahassee is second to none. We are known for our clubs and parties. There is something to do every night and bars are close to campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Dining Is Average – There are a lot of options when it comes dining in Tallahassee. Most restaurants are geared toward college students and therefore have average quality of food. But there are a lot of options when it comes to places to eat and they are very busy all the time.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Marketing and Sales – I am attending Florida State University and I am majoring in Marketing and Sales.All of my professors have had outside experience in the field they teach, some of which currently work outside the university. They are willing to help you and give letters of recommendations to students who ask. They also help students get internships if you seek out their help. Over all FSU has a great business program.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Very Diverse – i will definetly be looking for an internship in the upcoming summer, i know it will be fairly easy to find a good one

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not Sure – i'm not into athletics so i don't know but i know some friends are always playing sports and watching sporting events

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: campus is beautiful, things around the campus are a little scary make sure you know where you are going and how to get there

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Florida State is awesome. I love it. There are always thing to do and I love the scenery. Florida State was the only college I wanted to attend and I have loved since I started.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports at Florida State are huge! We have ranked basketball and baseball teams and they are awesome! The women's sports are also ranked and are fabulous.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus living is good. My apartment is within walking distance and parking is sufficient. I do wonder about the safety sometimes, but I am usually with someone and am not alone in the evening.My apartment is furnished and it is comfortable for me. The only thing I don't like is that it's a 12 month lease so if you are not there in the summer, you are still paying for an apartment you are not occupying.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Buses Are Okay – The bus system is pretty good and reliable. There is also the S.A.F.E. bus for going around campus at night. And the night nole is great for weekends.

2 College Senior

Parking: Parking is available if you are willing to come to campus early. If you want to be one of those people whol rolls out of bed late and then try to find a spot its not happening. And the "I couldn't find parking" excuse doesn't work for professors. Trying to find a spot between 10am and 2pm is difficult, so plan to drive around until you find something.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's a Great Day to Be a 'Nole! Everyone here is really friendly, and the weather is sunny and warm on average! There are so many different places to eat that are within walking distance from campus, as well as grocery stores. There are campus busses as well as city busses that are extremely convenient and easy to learn how to use. Even with being placed on a wait list for on-campus housing, the process was relatively stress-free.The older dorms aren't great, but they're convenient and a great way to meet people! The Leach Gym is huge, with lots of machines & weights, a pool, a sauna, a hot tub, an indoor track, etc. There aren't even that many undergrad classes that are huge. Generally, the undergrad classes range from 30-150 students. Florida State has a beautiful Green campus that is kept spotless. Go 'Noles!

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Not bad, most are pretty clean and what not. The Leach is usually crowded, but you just have to go during off hours. The library is amazing! If you want to study with a group or study very quietly by yourself, you can.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The one reason why I enjoy the campus of Florida State University is the over all experience. Being there you get the best of both worlds of the education and social life.

4 College Student

Campus Strictness: Florida State is very understanding and realizes when there is a time be strict and when it is ok to loosen up on the policies. They let it be your decision to make bad choices and deal with the consequences, becuase you have to learn from your experiences somehow.

4 College Student

Computers: I haven't really used the FSU computers, but the wireless for the most part works when I need it for laptop, or cellphone.

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.
