4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics is great at our school! We have so many talented athletes and so many different sports! Unfortunately, most non-athletes aren't interested in attending the games during the school year. Homecoming Football games still have a huge turn-out though!

3 College Junior

Athletics: I wish the students that weren't in sports were more involved in the events

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The major sports such as Basketball and Football are horrible. The teams put up very poor winning percentages. The basketball courts are terrible as we have rubber floors instead of hardwood. The football team dominants the weight room which is inconvenient for regular students. Intramural Basketball is great. It is more popular than varsity basketball, very competitive and I would recommend it to anybody that has played basketball before at any level.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There's hardly any school spirit. No one really attends meets or games.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: i don't know about the sports here

FSU’s athletics are composed of many talented college students. The athletic teams are amazing, but they do not always perform at their best. Even if the football team does not play up to par, there are still many other teams for the student body to cheer on. The student body has an amazing sense of school spirit. Every Friday, there's Spirit Day, when students wear any FSU apparel that they own. It is always amazing to see almost the entire student body supporting their school.

A lot of students go to the games. Most have friends in at least one sport, so naturally, they will make signs to cheer on friends or the team in general. All in all, students support each other. The Harold J. Cordts Physical Education Center is a very old building, but it is very clean. This facility contains a weight room, a room with treadmills, and an indoor pool. This is also the building where most of the athletes spend their time.

Most Popular Sports
Most people on campus enjoy going to the soccer and swimming matches. People like going to the football games, too, but the school does not have the best football team.
Most Overlooked Teams
Volleyball, track and field, and tennis are the most overlooked teams.
School Spirit
The first Friday of every month is Spirit Day. The student body is encouraged to wear whatever FSU apparel they own. Prior to any big game, the student body has a pep rally. For football, the pep rally is at the field. The school has a marching band and cheerleaders that get the student body into the spirit. Some students will come decked out in any red and black that they own. Even if the teams lose, students can still say they have a lot of school spirit.
Getting Tickets
Most athletic events are free to students, with the exception of playoff and NCAA events. Students/faculty do not always need to buy tickets to sporting events because there is an athletic fee included in the students' tuition.
Best Place to Take a Walk
Students love walking through the campus's arboretum and seeing lots of animals and plants. If you are interested in nature, you can even volunteer to clean up the arboretum.
