5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Attending the Florida State University has been the best decision I could have ever made! I have learned so much academically and I have grown so much as an individual. I have been given the opportunity to meet so many different people from all walks of life. Becoming a part of greek life at the university has also been such a great experience. If I could do it all over, I would definitely choose my university again because this is the college experience I have always dreamed of.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am in a very small major, and FSU is one of the best at it in the country. I am blessed to know what I want to do with my life. With that said, even though it was basically obligatory that I go to FSU, (it was the only place I applied to) I could not be happier with my decision. Everyone here is so accepting and friendly, which was a wonderful change of pace from high school. Tallahassee is definitely southern but downtown (the area around the campus) is surprisingly urban and becoming more cosmopolitan. The campus is very compact and that is huge for me because of my mobility issues. All of my professors have been extremely knowledgeable and its basically impossible to have "nothing to do" at FSU. I was able to get involved in the tv studio in the meteorology department and broadcast weather 3x a week on PBS Tallahassee. A very unique opportunity and that is just the tip of the iceberg. If they are strong academically in your program, FSU's environment provides an excellent opportunity to excel in those fields. One more thing, GO NOLES!

Overall Experience: From day one, my life and passion has been centered on the concept that education not only opens the door to an unlimited amount of knowledge, but also grants us the opportunity to unhinge our passions, foster hope, and help us embrace our greatest ambitions. Education is not limited to inside the classroom. I have been able to indulge in my passion for education more specifically through student affairs. I volunteer well over thirty hours a week dedicated to an organization called Dance Marathon. Dance Marathon is a forty-hour event, where 1,800 students pledge to stand for twenty hours. The idea is the “dancers” stand for those who can’t, because the main beneficiary is our local Children’s Miracle Network hospital. I personally plan the entertainment for the forty hours, delegate tasks to my team and help fundraise during the event, last year we raised $1.1 million. This division of student affairs has pushed me to better believe in myself, dream bigger, and further develop my leadership traits. These are just a select few of the characteristics and abilities I have learned from the student affair’s program. I’m applying for this scholarship because I always want to further my education so that I can empower others to have the same opportunities I have been so fortunate to obtain. If we can empower every student when they attend college to generate a contagious desire to focus on others, imagine how much of a better place the world would be.

Overall Experience: To be completely honest, I would have never imagined I would have ended up at Florida State. I could not be any happier with my decision to attend this university. The campus is absolutely beautiful and set up in a way where you can easily walk anywhere (really one of my favorite things about the university). Florida State also offers many opportunities for my major and I am currently looking into graduating with a Master's as well as my Bachelor's. Maybe I never planned to attend Florida State but I truly believe that it's where I belong.

Overall Experience: The people are great. Student friendly campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is far enough away from home where I do not receive "surprise visits" but close enough that I can make it home for holidays or important events. Most of the people are from south Florida which made it very easy to get acclamated. My school offers a tremendous amount of opportunities to create a professional future and the athletics are awesome too. I am so happy with my choice and would not have chosen any other school if I had to do it again.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love all of the teachers I have had so far, from bio 1 & 2, to precalc, to southeast religions, they have all been extremely knowledgable and excellent at conveying the knowledge. I knew I chose the right school when I got to see Bill Nye speak at our school my first month there, he was amazing. I love the vegan "Krishna" lunch served monday-friday!!!! It is so delicious and healthy. I feel like I belong at the school. Our neuroscience club is also fantastic and I have never felt more welcomed at any club, and I learned a lot about the brain! I could do without the huge Greek life because it seems to increase the pretentiousness of the student body that are involved, but I just keep my distance from the stereotypical ones.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have had a favorable experience in college. I have not attended my four year university yet, but I did dual enroll at my local state college while in high school. While dual enrolling I used many of the school's facilities such as the career center to get an idea of what I could major in while at FSU.

Overall Experience: Florida State is an amazing school. Although it was not my first choice, I am so glad I decided to come here. Even though it is a large school, the people and traditions make it seem much smaller and makes you feel as if you are part of a family.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Considering FSU wasn't my first choice I'm having an amazing time. The campus, the student body, and the faculty are all there for you wanting to see you be happy and succeed. If you're struggling there are resources to help you. If you want to start a new club you can almost instantly. And making new friends is as simple as saying hello. I arrived on campus not knowing a thing and almost no one. But now my circle of friends is growing by the semester and I know all the shortcuts around campus. We may not be in the "true south" but we've certainly got the southern hospitality. I love my decision now and wouldn't change it for the world.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Florida State University is a beautiful place to go to school. I had an outstanding year with my academics and was accepted into the FSU Honors Program and 3 other National Honor Societies. I had the classic freshmen experience at a big college - lived in an old, old, dorm that is now torn down. That was not such a great experience because it really was an old building and we had the bathroom on the hall. Next year I will be in an apartment quad and look forward to a better living experience. FSU is a big Greek school, football school and yes, party school. However, it is a serious academic school as well. You have to really be disciplined, especially as a freshman, to put your academics first. I saw a lot of people who put partying first and well, they did not have such a great year. Another drawback to being part of a 40,000 student body campus is that it can be challenging to get to Advisors, etc. Sometimes it was very disappointing. As a student from out-of-state I felt a little on the outside looking in. I did not want to do the Greek thing - and it seemed like the houses were all organized by Florida High Schools. I was invited to pledge but it is made clear that the Frat is above all and I was not going to do that - my academics and doing research takes priority over that. So, while I love FSU, I am considering transferring to GA Tech. I will get back my Hope Scholarship and Tech is a better school for Engineering. FSU is really a great school and if you want a big school experience with a lot of choices for extra-curricular, you should look into FSU. Go 'Noles!

Overall Experience: Florida State is huge, which one would think would be very intimidating but when you have thousands of people cheering together at a football game it really brings into perspective how large of a community and FSU family you have around you. FSU offers so much to its students. There is constant tutoring in the library, TAs and professors offer office hours and review sessions, academic advisors are always available, and study groups gather nonstop to study. It's a beautiful campus and there is always something to do. I loved my first year and am excited to go back for my second in the fall.

Overall Experience: I attend Florida State University and I am currently going into my sophomore year. I really enjoy everything FSU has to offer. It is a beautiful campus and I have met so many amazing people along the way and its not even half way over! FSU offers so many different varieties of majors which sets us apart from a lot of other schools. Athletics is what keeps any school alive and is what binds everyone together to become a family. Our athletics are pristine which helps us get closer as a seminole family. I love my school and if I wouldn't change anything about my decision to attend Florida State University!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: After my first year at Florida State I had learned a lot about myself and the person I would like to become. There are many individuals who mentor and guide me into understanding all the school has to offer towards my success and future. There is a large array of organizations, clubs, and service opportunities available to allow me to explore what I am passionate about. I would choose my school again because it is my home away from home. A place where I love to learn and experience new opinions and ideas that I was not aware of beforehand.

Overall Experience: Friendly students and professors. Very professional and mature environment and each employee is friendly and very helpful especially when you are first starting. The campus is pretty large but easy to navigate with the online map fsu provides as a free app. The advisors are great and have thorough knowledge on the major they are advising. I would choose this school again if I had another chance. The academics are excellent as well as sports.

Overall Experience: School has been great so far.

Overall Experience: Florida State University has been the best experience so far! I joined Delta Nu Zeta, a service sorority, and because of that I have been introduced to so many new things around Tallahassee. I love that there is such a high level of school spirit every single day. The classes and professors are absolutely amazing.

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.
