4 College Junior

Facilities: FSU has a variety of on campus activities. We have a movie theater, planetarium, a student run circus, and a club where bands and comedians will come to perform. The school union also has events throughout the year including holiday events, movies on landis and more.

Parking: Beware! Unless you show up early between the hours of 7-9am finding spots to park during the year are rare. If you can take the bus from your off campus location I highly suggest it. Also your not considered a FSU student until you are towed at least once so keep your eye on where you can and cannot park.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: great social life tallahassee embodies FSU all year

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: horrible old buildings with tiny rooms for more than one person

5 College Junior

Athletics: football season makes the fall semester great and basketball in the spring does the same

3 College Junior

Parking: they continue expanding parking garages around the school

3 College Freshman

Parking: It would be more convenient if there were more parking spots available.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: The night life is a lot of fun and there are a lot of places to choose from. There are a lot of underage kids that get away with it, but the cops are always outside keeping check. The only downfall is that it is dangerous to walk and if you don't live on campus, its difficult to get there and that there is always a cover and it's not cheap.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life has a strong presence throughout the campus at FSU. It is easy to tell who belongs to a fraternity of sorority, however, it isn't one of the most important things. Students who are not involved in Greek life at FSU have equal opportunities as those who are.

5 College Junior

Weather: The weather is great. Sunny most of the time, and rainy occasionaly. It gets cold, but not unbearably cold. Best of both worlds!

3 College Junior

Computers: The computers are good! They get used up though during finals week

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The food is awesome! Anything you want, any time that you want it they have. They have a few nice restraunts, and a ton of causual, good restraunts to eat at.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: So far, I've had the best experience with the financial aid process. They have done everything for me and have made it so easy.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: They offer good restraunts and everyone is always very helpful.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Sports are kind of a big deal here. Football season has to be the most intense at Florida State University. The students are passionate supporters and die hard fans for life. There is plenty of school spirit and the stadium is packed with alumni and current students rallying on their team. It's a fun and lively atmosphere than no student at FSU should miss out on.

Parking: Cost of permit is included in tuition but still isn't cheap and at times you aren't guaranteed parking because freshmen leave their cars in overnight garages for entire semesters so commuting students have to struggle during prime hours to find a spot. They also took away first level parking for students and are now designated faculty spots which limits out spaces. You can get lucky w parking of you pick garages far from the main campus buildings but it is a tiring walk during the hot days in FL.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Not to strict parties all the time. Its a college town.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Close to campus; however, not in the best location. Apt complex is very concerned on integrating residents by throwing parties and socials.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Tallahassee is a small area- but there isn't much for underage students off campus.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Florida State offered me a scholarship when I was accepted- and it was processed in a timely manner.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is good for making friends- but it can be time consuming and demanding to maintain that social schedule

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus system is highly effective- and very comfortable!

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Nightlife is mediocre. There are tons of bars and clubs to go to in Tally, but in my opinion the best times are when you go to house parties. (You'll find one every night)
Transportation is awesome. Night Nole.

Campus Dining: The dining halls on campus are very nice, but the food isn't exactly what I would define as good. There are lots of fried and buttery foods which are bad for your health while the fruits and veggies are very limited.

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.
