5 College Freshman

Academics: The classes are great for the field I'm in. I'm sure they vary per major.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: the dining halls are convenient, and the restaurants are good.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't do the party scene. School keeps my busy.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: On and surrounding campus the bus system is great. The airports are really expensive though.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I don't use the computers provided by the school, but the wireless network has problems sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There's not much to do regularly for entertainment, but sporatic events are a big deal in the community. Small town.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The libraries have great schedules and are very helpful. The datebase is great.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: there are a lot of opportunities for socializing on campus in an academic way.

3 College Student

Transportation: The cost is average along with what you get for that price. Busses stay on schedule typically.

3 College Student

Athletics: Fan support is off the charts along with school spirit. Games of any time are so fun and where you can cereate so many great memories.

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: Most guys and girls are generally goodlooking. Most have there own interests and dress of the style that is popular now. Many are in relationships but are fun!

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is available and many students reside there. There are many styles and choices and all are well kept and fairly new feeling. They are close to the school so you do not feel left out in any way.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The amount if school spirit present can get anyone wrapped up and loving this school. From clubs and activities, to tailgating and sports games there is no other school I could see myself at.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: Certain dorms have visitation hours but not all so you can choose if you want that or not. RA's are helpful and reasonable. They listen and do not make you feel like a child thankfully.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: I have not been personally forced to do anything I was not interested in. I am sure there are plenty of students who see this differently but I have not personally been effected.

4 College Student

Computers: Printing on campus is relatively cheap and the network speed is average. There are computer labs with plenty for everyone to use but it is helpful to bring your own for note taking in class.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is diversity, but there is also a noticeable level of intolerance. For example, the Black Student Union sign was uprooted. The school has a fairly big Liberal body of students, but there are a lot of very Conservative students, especially in Greek Life which makes up such a big portion of the school and its activities. If you're really looking into a progressive campus, this is suitable, but UCF and UF are probably better options.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Being from Central Florida, there's a very noticeable temperature change especially in the winter. It can get down to the teens at night. If you're from up north the weather will be nicer to you. Expect a lot of rain and "monsoons" in the summer, which is very typical of Florida.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the issues I had with the school were more of personal problems.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is definitely more convenient to live on campus if you can deal with the old mostly disgusting dorms.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office is very helpful but don't be surprised if you don't get financial aid because they don't give a lot out.

Nightlife: There are so many party options at FSU. There is something to do every night of the week usually at bars and clubs though. There is also a very convenient bus that runs at night called the Nite Nole.

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.
