4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's usually pretty good. Tallahassee is a college town, so there are always plenty of people looking for tenants. Most landlords don't rent out ridiculously nice places because they know that there's always the possibility an apartment will get trashed, but you can find plenty of average, comfortable places to live that don't cost too much.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I grew up in Tallahassee, and I live off campus, so I kind of consider everything in town to be at least somewhat close to FSU. As it is with any place, you've got good restaurants and you've got bad ones. I will say that there are a lot of fast food places around campus. More concentrated than in any other area.

3 College Junior

Administration: The honor code is pretty strictly enforced at FSU, but things like underage drinking tend not to be. They're really strict about parking because the spaces are so limited.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It was a hassle because I submitted my FAFSA late and then got chosen for tax verification, but that was my fault. The office of financial aid was split on helpfulness: some people really seemed like they wanted to help me, and others seemed like they couldn't care less.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Since I don't have a meal plan, I don't eat on campus too much, but when I do, the food's usually pretty good. I like the Chili's, but it's a little expensive, so I can't do that very often. The Denny's is pretty cheap, but the quality's not as good.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on the Florida State campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of variety, but it's hard to find a nice place for a reasonable price.

Campus Food: There is a good variety of places to eat, but the food and meal plans are overpriced.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in a dorm room on campus has its perks because of the convenience factor, but the dorm rooms are very small and I'm constantly getting sick.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is extremely expensive, particularly if you want to live within walking distance to campus.

Scholarships: There have been many issues with financial aid. When I tried to purchase my books for the new semester the Financial Aid office glitched saying that I, along with several other students had no financial aid for the semester.

Party Scene: FSU is a big party school and there are many options for every night of the week, however I'm not a huge partier.

Campus Food: All of the food tastes reasonably good, however it is difficult to keep a strict healthy diet on campus and the food options get boring after a while.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms are very nice and spacious and renovated and others are run down, old and in need of a major renovation. The campus always has something going on and it is a very social atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Every thing but sawunnee is fine. Sawuannee is hit or miss but the quality of food isn't so great. Food is either undercooked or overcooked, lettuce seems brown, food cooked with a lot of oils, doesn't supply enough healthy options for students that have Osceola food plan (14 meals a week). It isn't fair how expensive it is and the food isn't that great of a quality and plus half of the dorms on campus require a meal plan which also isnt fair because dorms are already expensive

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The RA's and staff are nice and help with any problems but the funds for my dorm seems low because it smells like downstairs in specific areas we have mildew problems. In other dorms there is known mildew problems. In my dorm half of our thermostats do not work. In the music LLC dorm everyone is nice and mostly easy to talk to

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.
