Campus Food: food here is awesome, i just wish the hours were longer (open later)

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: i have lived on campus for three years now, and i absolutely love it!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many new apartment complexes popping up and most apartments are REALLY nice. Catalyst, Stadium Centre, UClub, 601 Copeland, and the newest one, Onyx, are all modern, spacious and relatively safe. All are walking distance from campus, but driving to campus is faster (except if your class is scheduled during the parking rush hour).

4 College Sophomore

Academics: FSU is the perfect fit for me. I worked my butt off in high school taking 10+ AP classes, so classes are right in my comfort zone. It's all about taking notes and studying. My major needs to offer more classes that are on the course catalog and I've had some average and less than average professors, but a few gems each semester. It's undergrad at a state school... Classes/professors are hit or miss.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The tour of FSU sold me. It's gorgeous... Like taking a nature walk every day. The buzz of people walking around campus makes me feel the feels. Sitting/studying/petting dogs/hammocking/tanning on Landis are all musts. The Union is a great place to eat and Market Wednesdays are really fun! Westcott fountain is majestic. Sorority row has some unique and beautiful houses. The classroom buildings are great, especially HCB and the Health/Wellness center. Even the musty ones have a certain character that's hard not to love. Campus is always being improved which is super nice.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Florida State just gives me good vibes. People are friendly, attractive, and surprisingly studious. The campus is breathtaking and there's always something to do. I've enjoyed many of my classes because of the professors. I wish that my major, Environmental Studies, offered more classes though. FSU football and nightlife make everything worth while. I've met some incredible people here and can't wait for the rest of my college years in Tallahassee.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had at least one significantly great professor each semester. They're not all shining stars, but some REALLY ARE. The good ones are passionate, articulate and communicate well on a personal level with students. It's mainly about the luck of the schedule.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So many girls in my sorority who just graduated scored great internships during their time at FSU. From what I've heard the business, film and psychology schools prepare students really well. Each department deeply cares and provides resources for students to take advantage of opportunities. The career center will help you make a fantastic resume. Most advisors and faculty are truly caring and helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: FSU is more about the people than the place. The roads are small and always crowded with traffic regardless of what time it is. There's homeless people all over. The shopping is nothing compared to major cities (besides a few nice boutiques). It's 100% college town and not a great place to be afterward... Especially if you love the beach. The scenery is nice though and Tally has some unforgettable food and nightlife. I'll come back and visit!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am in a sorority and it's not all it's cracked up to be. I like being social and having events, parties, philanthropies and connections, but true sisterhood isn't going to magically appear after rush. They're mainly full of superficial girls who are basically stuck in high school. You still need to meet people in your classes and dorm to find true friends and connections. 99% of fraternity guys are cocky and gross, be warned. But hey, the houses are pretty and food is great.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is so important. You will live for the garnet and gold. Every sports team has been outstanding this past year. Football, baseball, women's soccer, and softball won ACC championships. The games themselves are so fun to watch. The Leach is a great place to work out.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Tally has some dank food. You will NEVER be disappointed, but the freshman 15 is real!! You're gonna get addicted to local faves like Momo's pizza and Roboto's like I did. You can even find some nice, upscale places for date nights like Kool Beanz and Masa. Delivery until 3 am from Bite, Z-baked and Gumby's make any night out complete.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: My suitemates were caught with alcohol in their dorm and ended up with court dates. Just don't be loud and rowdy. The night staff are there to enforce rules. I could smell weed often in my hall and I've seen officers of TPD in my dorm elevator. However, I have seen police stand outside of frat parties watching underage drinkers stumble into cabs. They really only care that people get home safe and nobody is getting hurt. Of course, the shooting in November proves the speed and effectiveness of our campus officers in dire situations.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I don't have any complaints about on campus food. Starbs and Chick-fil-a are staples of the college diet. Rising Roll has some great options. You can't go wrong with a bagel from Einstein. Two words: SALAD CREATIONS. The dining hall waffles and omelettes are actually legit. Lines for food during the day can be somewhat long though. If you rush a sorority, you're guaranteed great variety every day at the house.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms that are on the East side of campus are nice and spacious. Best dorm is probably Cawthon or Landis based on proximity to things on campus, spaciousness and social atmosphere. The buildings at FSU are super beautiful. A few duds like Kellum and Smith, but they're liveable. Degraff is loud. Overall, it's basic dorm life.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I had it my first summer there but did not get it during the fall and spring.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is clean and new in certain dorms others it's the opposite.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Seems ok i havent lived off campus yet though so idk

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: All i have to say is people drive from miami to tally

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options especially on Tennessee street, so much food

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.
