3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Coming from a big city, there are enough options in Tallahassee that I don't always have to eat in the dining halls.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Students appear more "normal" on this campus than the other campuses I visited. I fit well in this environment.

4 College Freshman

Academics: As a freshman, I'm not into specific classes for my major yet, but I am involved in classes that pertain to my major and so far, it's great!

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I went through fall rush as a freshman and have no regrets about what I learned about each organization. It was great preparation for selecting the fraternity I'm now proudly a part of!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: This was our first experience with financial aid, so there a big learning curve in figuring out how it all works. I'm very grateful for the aid I have received.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Intramurals (both co-ed and greek involvement) are great! A lot of fun!

2 College Freshman

Computers: It's very frustrating in the residence halls when wi-fi is acting up and you can get connected to complete assignments or email your research paper to your professor.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are multiple buses and routes offered in all directions on campus. Even though I have a car on campus, this is a great option if I don't want to drive.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm a minor so I don't go to bars, but there are plenty of other options to spend social time with friends.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I grew up in a big city where there's always multiple events going on. Tallahassee is the state's capital so that area is busy, and right around the FSU campus is okay, but off campus, it's rural and some areas seem sketchy and unsafe.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Its just like any other city, just don't let female's walk alone at night.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you live by campus getting to school is no problem but if you're pretty social and always going over people's houses, a car is definitely necessary.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Yes most of the students here are from south Florida but still gets pretty diverse

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: After you get your freshmen year experience in a dorm, definitely consider moving off-campus...WAY BETTER

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Just be smart, and don't be a drunken fool. Also parking tickets.....a lot of them

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Eating out get's pretty addicting, at least not every place is expensive.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The best place to party and meet girls. Everyone's just looking to have a fun time. And Football season is definitely better than christmas seasons.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is great, there are plenty of options though it may not be convenient without a vehicle

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't really care about greek life, but they do have somewhat of a presence on the social scene. I do know that you don't to join to be able to go to some of the parties

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of food chain restaurants as well as some good local restaurants, most prices range are average and the taste is good.

College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not a big sports fan and I have not been on campus for the playing season so I would not be able to accurately say how they go

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.
