Overall Experience: I recently attended freshman orientation and it was such an awesome experience! I met so many wonderful people and the staff and upperclassmen were so helpful. Any and all questions I had were answered sufficiently and I even got to learn a lot about the campus layout and the various buildings. I'm so excited to get involved in all of the different activities offered through my university. I absolutely love Florida State and cannot wait to trend in the fall.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love attending Florida State University and I am so thankful that I am able to get my education at such a prestigious, upstanding university. My father is an alumni of Florida State so I grew up in a Seminole household so I felt as if Florida State was where I was meant to be. The professors are very down-to-earth and really want you to succeed. Especially in the science classes, where you would think that the lectures would be cut-and-dry, our professors try to learn our names and have many office hours we can attend if we need extra help. I believe our football traditions are what makes us unique and stand out abive all of the other colleges. I grew up going to FSU football games and it is just such a part of who Tallahassee is. Gamedays are gamedays for the whole city, even if you don't root for FSU. I am also an employee of Florida State University and that makes my attendence here even better. They are very accomodating and always tell us that "School comes first, then work." They take care of us as OPS employees and that is another great thing about my school. Another unique feature of my school is the sheer beauty around campus. All of our buildings are made entirely of red bricks. Our football stadium is the second largest non-religious brick structure in the entire world. I have never seen a campus so beautiful and every one that visits our campus is simply in awe of it's beauty. I don't mean to brag but I just love Florida State University and I know I made the right choice by attending college here.

Overall Experience: Going to college is an adjustment for everyone. Some of my friends were happy to get out of the house. I love home but was happy to be attending FSU. It wasn't easy at first, being away from the familiar surroundings and new found independence, but I loved my classes and advisers. They made the adjustment easy. The campus is easy to navigate and comfortable. I wouldn't change a thing

Off-Campus Housing: There are hundreds of really nice apartments all around campus some cheaper some more expensive some close some far. It all depends. The apartments are always around campus showing off their places and people are always looking for roommates so off campus housing is not too hard. It is just hard finding the perfect one. The rates are often flexible so sometimes if you sign up early or with a group you can save some money.

Party Scene: The night life is amazing at FSU. There are always cheap deals for drinks and cover at one place or another every night making it very inexpensive to go out. There is almost always a perfect ratio between guys and girls. Mondays= Mandatory Makeout Mondays at Clydes, Tuesdays = Leave you boyfriends at home night at Moda, Wednesday (Summer) = Whitetrash Wednesday at the Strip, Wednesday (Winter) = Winedown Wednesday at Mint or anywhere really, Thursday= Purgatory at Pots (all you can drink till 11:30) Friday and Saturday = any where, Sunday = 49 cent wings and dollar beers at some of the sports bars.

Off-Campus Dining: There are hundreds of places to eat off campus including every major food chain and also local resteraunts with great food at a decent price. There are plenty of late night places to order from and I believe McDonalds and Whattaburger are the only places open 24/7

Administration: Any where you go you are going to get a variety of cops. At FSU I would say a large majority of them are pretty nice people and do not care that much about catching an underage kid with a beer because they are more concerned with drunk driving and domestic crimes. They will also not hesitate to give you a parking ticket or tow you so that part of it sucks. In my dorm in Degraff we were allowed to have over night guests and pregames. They only wanted us to be quiet and courteous to those around. So if you can stay quiet and not be obnoxiously drunk you shouldn't have a problem.

Campus Food: I did an unlimited meal plan my freshman year and regret doing so. I was not a fan of the most of food and they never had a lot of options. There were a few things I liked, but if you eat there every day it gets old really fast. It does make it convenient being able to eat as much as you want with out worrying about money, but it does close at 10 and earlier on weekends. Flex bucks are the best option because it allows you to eat anywhere on campus including the dining hall. They have some really good food on campus, but there hours are pretty limited so don't think if you have an unlimited meal plan and 500 flex bucks you won't be ordering pizza to your dorm at 11pm.

Scholarships: Would not know what to tell you because I did not apply for financial aid

Campus Housing: The dorms at Florida State can range from poor to great. The honors dorms along with Degraff and Wildwood are great places to live and everything is in the range of a 15 minute walk, but there are also really bad dorms such as Smith, Dorman, Diviney are sort of a dump. The rooms are cramped, you have community bathrooms, and most of the time the ceilings are just pipes. Fortunately, FSU is destroying Dorman and Diviney and building 2 brand new dorms and from the outside seem extremely nice.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
