4 College Freshman

Transportation: I have never had an transportation issues. I don't have a car but the bus service both through the school and the city can get you pretty much anywhere you need. The city buses are free to students. If you do need to go long distance, there is a rental car place on campus as well as a close by bus station, airport, and train station. There's also always students getting rides from each other. Every time I drove home for the weekend or holidays I went with my friend who had a car, I just had to pitch in a bit for gas.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a lot of ways to stay safe on campus. There are apps you can get to make sure you get home safely, night buses to travel when it's late (and you are possibly under the influence), and a defense course for female students.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are lots of computers all over campus so if you don't have your own, you can find one to use for schoolwork. Printing costs about 8 cents per page which is a hassle sometimes so a lot of students just buy their own printers. The internet speed can be sorely slacking so most students have Ethernet cables to ensure connection. Since getting my own I've never had any problems though when I was just dealing with wifi, it was pretty slow and sometimes disconnected when I was in the middle of doing something.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I would say campus strictness is about the same as anywhere else. There are obviously rules that are enforced but it never seems to be a problem. I don't really see a lot of people get in trouble.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The two on campus gyms that are free to students have great facilities. One just opened this year so it's brand new. You can sign up for a personal trainer or take classes or just do your own thing with the various equipment.

The libraries on campus are great which is obviously a plus since as a student I spend a lot of time there.

There's an abundance of school spirit, especially this season as our football team has gone undefeated and made it to the National Championships. Because of this, many traditions are practiced out of celebration and there's all kinds of events around time of games.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: All of my classes are incredibly interesting with great professors who work had to ensure that every student has the resources and help they need while also making the classroom interesting.

Socially, there's a bunch of opportunities to do fun things on campus for free or for cheap. Every week there's a bunch of free movies playing at out on campus theatre from new to old, blockbusters to indie flicks. There's also lots of random events just for the sake of having them.

There are regularly fairs to help students with things like local jobs, graduate school, and studying abroad.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: People of all ethnicities, races, political beliefs, religious beliefs, and sexual orientations are very accepted

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very social. Beautiful campus. Outgoing characters. Many events and activities.

College Freshman

Majors: I have yet to be accepted into the program for my major.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Students keep their alcohol and drugs hidden for the most part. Usage is high, but that might cut down now that we are a tobacco free campus starting this year

5 College Freshman

Facilities: So many traditions and events to take part in. Libraries and centers are amazing. The green spaces are, for the most part, well kept and gorgeous.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: It's very beautiful and the social scene is very outgoing.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Very attractive guys and girls on campus. Variety of personalities and strong points

College Freshman

Academics: I have not been accepted into the major. I am currently taking classes that are required

5 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are willing to help you and make sure you succeed

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crime is pretty low and the police are very protective. I feel safe.

4 College Freshman

Weather: usually it's very warm or hot which is perfect to enjoy outdoor activities

3 College Freshman

Computers: network reliability and speed is relatively weak and unreliable at times. It's best to always have an ethernet cord with you

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Not the safest place to live. It's beautiful in certain parts of the area, but not in others.

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, but not because of campus security. They are rarely seen except for on the weekends at night.

Campus Strictness: They are strict in the most important areas and lenient in the right ways. They are strict about underage drinking and drug use. They are very strict about following our honor code. Attendance is something they leave up to the students and professors very rarely punish a student for bad attendance.

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.
