Greek Life: I am not part of Greek life and actively try and stay away.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have yet to live in off-campus housing, and thus cannot provide an accurate review

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There could be an easier way to travel farther distances from campus, or an easier way to keep track of city bus routes.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Peer pressure does not effect me and I choose not to do drugs or drink because I have goals and plans for my college life and years after.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are not always free computers in the libraries, so having a personal laptop is very important.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have not had a problem with receiving financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: People are very accepting and there are many clubs that revolve around different ethnicities.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many off-campus housing options and some are within walking distance.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: There is so much school spirit here and our football team is number two in the nation right now!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is rarely any crime. There are always police on campus and I feel very safe, even at night.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People are so nice here and I have made so many good friends.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There is always different food on the menus in each dining hall and there are several other restaurants on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a good variety of restaurants surrounding the campus and they are very affordable.

College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not something I am interested in, so I would not know how to rate the Greek life.

5 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love being a biology major because there are so many opportunities to do research on campus.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Campus buses will take you anywhere on campus and even certain places off-campus.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Student permits are free, but you don't really need a car. Everything is within walking distance.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus. Can't relate.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Tough to drive around, and tougher to eat on a budget.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Hard to find a spot in most garages that are close to the center of campus, but easy the further you go. Parking enforcement is very selective and at time laughable.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: You can be whatever you want at FSU. There are a wide variety of major options as well as minors.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It is a lot of hard work, but that is to be expected as a biology major on the pre-med track.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It's a pretty relaxed school, but it is strict in some areas. Parking is a big one!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is virtually one of everything within walking or a short driving distance to campus. A great variety of both local and chain restaurants as well as a mix of fine-dining and fast food options.

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.
