5 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Mostly everyone is outgoing and into something that you're into as well. There is a huge crowd of different people because the school is so big but at times can seem very small.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: There's not too much shopping, but a lot of sports to be involved in through FSU intramurals or friends. There's food truck thursdays and First Fridays with music, drinks and shows every month. There are concerts every month, student discounts just about everywhere and the night life is amazing! The Rez is also a unique place: a huge lake where you can rent canoes and kayaks for free with student ID's, rock climb, sun bathe, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The taxis are only $4 after 2am so you'll never have to go home with someone who could be drinking and driving. There's the night nole, a campus bus and many other ranges of transportation.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its beyond beautiful. The dorms are average and if you want to live on campus you should pay the housing fees the day you get accepted because its rated by priority number.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone here is attractive whether it be through looks, academic achievements or just personality.

Weather: Although FSU is located in the Sunshine State, daily showers are expected during the summer months.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It is somewhat a hassle to deal with financial aid, but once you've filled out the needed forms you won't have to worry about it until the next year.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: I have absolutely no complaints about the Nightlife at FSU.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus PD are always present and patrolling campus. Also, there are stations everywhere on campus in case of emergency.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Very bipolar weather here, can be very cold one day then the next it can be extremely hot

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is huge, if you are interested in doing it then go for it!!

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Florida State is a good looking school. No matter where you go there is always some eye candy. Some times I would go to the library to study just because those cute boys were good motivation.

Health & Safety: Its dark on campus and there are lots of bushes. But I mainly took the safe bus at night which was a relief to have.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I didn't really use computers on campus regularly, I bro ught my own laptop. If I had any issues with my laptop they easily helped my. Printing was very costly at all of the printing stations on campus, I ended up buying a printer to save money!

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It is very hard to be determined to go to class when it is pouring down rain and half the campus is flooded. If I wanted to go to the swamp, I would have gone to UF.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Its far too centered on American football. Its like no one cares about anything else, except maybe basketball.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options around the school. Most are fast food but some other ones too.

College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is huge at FSU and dominates the student government, which is annoying because no other voices can be heard. If youre a part of it, I guess its fun, but its far to pervasive for me. A lot of people find Greeks very loud, uncultured, obnoxious, egocentric, etc.

3 College Junior

Facilities: some classrooms are outdated but the gym and libraries are nice.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Nearly everyone lives off-campus, but to varying degrees. For cheap, there are great apartments and townhomes, but they are far away from campus; for around $500-600 a month you can live within a street of campus with 1-2 roommates in a modest place. For $800/month, there are luxurious new apartment complexes. Near campus there are houses but they were all built in the 70's... falling apart.

3 College Senior

Weather: Hot and rainy every day during the summer (High 80's, humid);
Cold and sunny during the winter (High 60's, Low 30's)
Fall and spring are sunny. Pleasant 70's

However when it rains, it pours and floods a little. Rain boots are necessary!

4 College Junior

Athletics: It's all about the football at FSU. The games are a huge social event and a lot of fun to go to. But because it is ALL about the football, the other sports are much less advertised and a lot harder to find out about ahead of time.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: FSU's police force is there if you ask them to be. They have a lot of different safety programs at student's disposal, but they aren't really a constant, visible presence around campus. I've never felt particularly unsafe on campus except at night or in the parking garages, and I only felt unsafe in the garages because the drivers speed and don't yield to pedestrians.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Varsity sports at FSU are great across all sports. The entire campus is extremely involved in Varsity sports. The Campus Rec program does a great job with Intramural Sports and Sports Clubs.

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.
