4 College Junior

Facilities: FSU offers something for everyone, and that's why I love it. All the teachers are really nice and truly want you to succeed.

5 College Junior

Facilities: There are so many things that FSU does to get students involved. There is the circus, sports, Greek-life, movies play at the student theater, clubs, the library, night-life, FSU really is the whole package.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Sports play a huge part at FSU, whether you are on varsity or not. There is something for everyone.

2 College Junior

Parking: If you live off campus and need to park on campus for class, good luck. You'll need to leave your house like an hour early.

4 College Junior

Weather: I think Tallahassee weather is actually really funny. The summers are brutal, and the winters are even more brutal. One day it can be 80 degrees and the next 60. But I guess that's why I like it.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am a business major, which is one of the biggest majors at the school. The classes are large and the only way I know people is through greek-life.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe walking through campus during the day alone. But at night is a different story. The surrounding area is very scary and multiple robberies have occurred.

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.
