4 College Junior

Nightlife: There is something for everybody and anybody can party with anybody.

3 College Junior

Academics: Engineering is problematic because there are no online classes so you must meet up in person. I believe that is the way it is at all universities so regardless it is a harder major especially if you are one that has to work and go to school. There isn't as much flexibility as other majors with the track for you to graduate with a degree which is a let down but you gotta deal with it.

4 College Junior

Academics: It's just like any other big school and the school takes pride in trying to pride the best.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I have grown use to the city of Tallahassee even though I am use to bigger cities and interconnected cities lines.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Typical financial aid process as any school but I was surprised by how soon they disperse financial aid though.
