5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the location of where I live on campus- Jennie Murphree Hall. The dining hall is a three minute walk, and the library is a two minute walk from here. The only downside is that I live the 15 minutes away from some of my classes, but the bus system is very convenient.

I was originally assigned a different dorm that is on the other side of campus named Salley Hall, but I applied for reassignment. Not that there is anything wrong with it but but I just didn't prefer the location. Because of my location now, I do have one of the more expensive dorms, but not the most. It is one of the oldest dorms on campus, but it was refurbished years ago.

I love the social atmosphere here because everyone I know is in my grade level. We get along so well because we are a community and the other students equally try to integrate themselves into each other's lives.

Greek Life: Personally I am not involved in Greek life, therefore I don't have a first-hand opinion on that. But I have attended a few fraternity and sorority events, and they seem to be very big on campus. They encouraged everyone to come out and rush. As a girl, everyone is guaranteed a sorority. But for guys, it seems more difficult in that they are not guaranteed a frat. Living in the house is not something allowed until their second year, but some require study time, events, and a meal plan there.

Non-Greeks do not mind the Greek students. if you do not want to be involved with them, you don't have to be. Like me, although I am not affiliated with it, I have a ton of friends who are and it does not affect our relationship in any way.

Athletics: The football team is huge here and nationally recognized. Just this season we have fluctuated from top 13 to #2 in the nation. Other than football, there are so many other sports- varsity and intramural. We have sports that I'm sure other colleges have not even heard of. The school spirit is also something that really encourages the athletic side of campus. There is not a day that goes by that I do not see at least 20 people wearing our school colors.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have no regrets coming to the school. I believe that it strongly encourages us to become well-rounded individuals. With academic rigor and persuasions to become social through clubs and sports, FSU is the school for anyone!

Diversity: I've heard a lot of gay slander and that really bothers me.

Greek Life: I am not a fan of greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football is really intense here, but for a good reason I suppose.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my college experience so far with the classes however my interactions with people have seemed very rushed and superficial.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have never regretted coming to FSU. I love the school, the atmosphere, and the people. Class sizes are a little bigger than I wished, but they will get smaller once I get into my major.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: FSU Nursing is known as one of the hardest Nursing programs in the state. If I do get into this program and graduate from here I am certain I will have no problems finding a job in my field.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Tallahassee isn't the greatest city in general when it comes to crime rate, however, I feel very safe when I'm on campus. I have never had any problems, even walking home late at night.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I thoroughly enjoyed my time living in a dorm on campus. My roommate and I got along and we had plenty of room for the two of us. It is a bit pricey for what you get though, which is why I have chosen to live off campus this year.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life isn't my thing, but all of my roommates are involved with Greek life and they love it. They don't treat me differently because I'm not in it with them. I can see why people would want to join Greek life and all the benefits Greek life offers.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Sporting events here at Florida State University almost always sell out, and if they aren't sold out, they are very close to it. People take sports very seriously here, I know some people who have never missed a football game in their whole time here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience thus far has been great. Teachers are very willing to stay after class or meet with students to help them understand materials. Everyone is very friendly and there are plenty of clubs and extracurriculars to get involved with.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have taken many course here at Florida State and they have been great. The professors are professionals of their topics and classes are very interesting.

Greek Life: Personally, I have not chosen to go Greek because it was too expensive and that's just too many women in one room for me. Sometimes I wonder if going Greek would've been a good way to get involved. I found other ways to get involved without going Greek.

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.
